Evan Taubenfeld, Avril Lavigne's lead guitarist is leaving the band to pursue Probably relationships issue with the rest of the band members.
It's hooky, it's catchy, it's fun. Of course, she had to few a few ballads in there, but the big surprise is that they're some of Avril's strongest yet. With this in mind, I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get to some of the more insightful questions on my list "What's the one thing about your career you regret?
She's not "Complicated" anymore -- she's having the time of her life. Now, I've been listening to it a lot over the past week and it's been really fascinating just learning about it. Your favorite song is obviously "I Can Do Better", and it's pretty awesome. I know you set out to make this live, high-energy album, but there's one song the really affected me which is [the ballad] "Innocence", the one you wrote with Evan [Taubenfeld, her long-time friend and guitarist].
It's just so different in style from your songs -- even from Under My Skin … Yeah. So I was wondering, where did that come from? Well, the song is about capturing a moment in time, of like I'm very happy in my life right now. The song is always so beautiful to me, and I actually just listened to it yesterday 'cos I hadn't heard my CD for awhile and I wanted to flip through 'em -- thinking about my live show -- so I listened to it and I was like fuck! I love that song too because it's so stripped down that you really hear my voice, and it comes across very singer-songwriter-y, which is of course a side to me that I have.
And, um, I find it to be a very emotional song, too. You know, I've read a lot of [your] interviews leading up to this, and you talked about how you wanted to create this fun, visceral, "live" album -- yet at the same time, you're not starting on the big tour untilright? So what are you going to with your downtime before that Well it's not downtime.
I'm going to Europe for a month, and I'm playing summer festivals, like And then December will be all the radio shows, and a lot of it is because I have so many places to go internationally to promote this record it takes much more of my time, it's not just "Hi, America and Canada!
Japan and Europe and South America do really well so, um, it takes more time so therefore I'll spend the rest of this year promoting this record and single and I'll definitely be playing a lot of shows. I'm here in L. It's going to be awesome. I can imagine the sheer fun it's going to be to do this album live. There's another song that struck me, and that's "When You're Gone".
In the Blender interview it mentioned how Butch helped you write after talking about how hard it is to be away from Deryck when you're on tour. Yeah, a bit of it was about that. I mean, it was a song that we wanted to make universal, and a lot of the inspiration came having to leave someone that you love and all the little things you miss about them.
The song's gonna be the second single. I just shot the video for it. I came up with the concept for the video: I wanted to have, like, a husband going off to war with his pregnant wife at home, and then I wanted like an old man who clearly had lost his wife and he goes to the gravestone to visit her, and then I wanted like a teenage couple who [had a] "weren't allowed to be together" kinda thing, so like there's all these different stories.
This video's really pretty and it's very personal.Avril's first band (2002)- Where are they now?
So it's nice for me just talking about how I want it to make the record really fun and up-tempo. You know, I'd enjoy having a couple ballads so that I could really express my emotions and deliver emotion and just get If not just to change tempo. But the interesting thing is that you really took a hands-on effort with this, like: Yeah, because you know it's my third record and I'm 22 now -- well, I was 21 [at the time of recording] -- and I'm so fucking hands-on with everything.
It's like, just because I'm older now it's like I'm so involved with them, with business stuff, and I work so closely with my management now I mean, I [still] made all the decisions and approved everything. So when it came time to do this record, I had my vision. You know 'cos like I knew what I wanted to do and … it was just going to be a pain in the butt for me.
Can I hear the songs? I didn't want to hear what other people had to say and other people's opinions because I wanted to really just listen to myself and my gut because I feel that I'm pretty "on" with my own music, and what So, it worked out really good and everyone agreed on all the same singles when I handed it in and everyone was really excited. Oh my god, I [am so] excited about this record, like it was so I just felt so good about it and I really felt like this was going to be a good thing for me.
And it obviously has been. So, you're getting used to producing, and you also helped co-write that one Kelly Clarkson song ["Breakaway"]. So I was wondering: Well, I used to think "Oh, it would be fun to get into producing," but I don't know about producing. I would be more into writing. But you know what? With writing for me I find, like, at the end of the record I was like "OK, done" like I didn't want to write anymore. It's like you have all this creative energy and I put it all into this record and I want to not write until my next record because I want it to build up again because it always happens to me every record: So, I like to write for me instead of just being like "Oh, I'm gonna write for this person," but I think yes, I would like to write for a couple other people, but I'd have to really like them, I guess.
And I've had a million opportunities to write for TV shows and for movies and I was never interested 'cos I didn't want to just like write a great song and give it away when it could've been a single off my record, you know?
When Eragon came along I was already in the studio -- that was the first one I did. You know -- there was this one song you did that was really cool, it was one of the ones you did with [ex-Blink drummer] Travis Barker: It got relegated to a B-side for "Girlfriend". Yeah, I didn't want it on the record. Because it didn't go with it. It didn't flow [with the rest of the album] naturally? It was just very different. Well there you have it. With this record you also just got to collaborate with a lot people: Is there anyone that you're still dying to collaborate with?
And you know what? He and Lavigne's mother recognized their child's vocal abilities when she was two years old and sang " Jesus Loves Me " on the way home from church. Her parents supported her singing.
