Avril Lavigne namechecks Radiohead on new track

"Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs" she croons on new track 'Here’s To Never Growing Up'

They might be worlds apart on the music spectrum, but Canadian pop punk Avril Lavigne has name-checked Radiohead on her new track, which was released today (April 9) – scroll down to listen to it.

The singer’s new song ‘Here’s To Never Growing Up’ features the line: “Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs, with the boombox blaring as we’re falling in love”. The track, which was co-written with fiancé Chad Kroeger and will feature on her forthcoming fifth album, which is set for release some time in 2013.

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.

Radiohead, meanwhile, have said that they will be getting back together to work on their new album at the end of this summer.
 Bassist Colin Greenwood said: “We’re taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the] end of the summer.”

Radiohead released their eighth album, ‘The King Of Limbs’, in 2011 and played a UK arena tour last autumn. Frontman Thom Yorke recently released ‘Amok’, the debut album from his Atoms For Peace project.
