Avril Lavigne starts work on new album

Singer begins working on follow up to ‘Goodbye Lullaby’

Avril Lavigne is already well into a follow up to this year’s ’Goodbye Lullaby’.

The singer said that she had already written eight songs for the album.

When asked by her fansite Avril Lavigne Band Aids about a new album, she said: “I already have eight songs! I would like to release the fifth album really quick.”

She added: “This record was more mellow, and the next one will be pop and more fun again. I already have a song that I know is going to be a single, I just need to re-record it!”

The 26 year old singer also revealed that she will be performing a cover of Coldplay‘s ‘Fix You’ as part of her upcoming tour.

Lavigne will play shows in Manchester and London in September.
