Avril Lavigne is the fifth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne. It was released on 1 November 2013 by Sony Music Entertainment. The album is a follow-up to her 2011 release Goodbye Lullaby. Lavigne collaborated with many producers including Martin Johnson, Peter Svensson, David Hodges, Matt Squire and Chad Kroeger. In both musical and lyrical aspects, the album represents a departure from the acoustic-oriented production of her previous album Goodbye Lullaby, featuring a more pop and upbeat sound juxtaposed with power and piano ballads. Avril Lavigne also incorporates electronic music, industrial and punk rock. The album features two vocal collaborations: Kroeger and American industrial metal singer Marilyn Manson. This was her first and only album through Epic.
