Avril Lavigne is the self-titled fifth studio album by Canadian recording artist Avril Lavigne, released on 1 November 2013 by Sony Music Entertainment. The album is a follow-up to her 2011 effort Goodbye Lullaby and was developed shortly after its release. Lavigne collaborated with numerous producers including Martin Johnson of Boys Like Girls, Peter Svensson, David Hodges, Matt Squire and Chad Kroeger (of Nickelback). 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 also features two collaborations: Lavigne's husband and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger and American industrial metal singer Marilyn Manson.
