Avril Lavigne has revealed that she has recorded a track with Marilyn Manson for her new album, due this year.

The unlikely collaboration features on a track titled 'Bad Girl', which Lavigne describes as one of the album's "heavier" songs. "The record's really diverse," Lavigne told Billboard. "We've got these pop-rock tunes, and then these piano ballads with orchestras.

"I have a heavier song that Marilyn Manson's on called 'Bad Girl,' and then I've got a song called 'Hello Kitty' that sounds like nothing I've done before." The singer's new song 'Here’s To Never Growing Up', which you can listen to here, features the line: "Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs, with the boombox blaring as we’re falling in love". Lavigne describes the track, co-written with fiancé Chad Kroeger, as "one of the rock tunes on [the album], but it's all over the place."

At the end of last year, the Canadian pop-punk singer unveiled her cover of the 'How You Remind Me' by Kroeger's band Nickelback, which will appear on the soundtrack to a new anime film One Piece Film Z.

Marilyn Manson, meanwhile, recently caused concern after collapsing on stage in February.
