Avril Lavigne Announces Long-Awaited Fourth Album, Slams Label in Letter to Fans
Avril Lavigne's fourth studio album is finally getting closer to a release date. The follow up to 2007's The Best Damn Thing has been mired in delays, though it's been finished for well over a year. In a letter to her fans, Lavigne slammed her record label, RCA, for holding up the music.
"This has been a really difficult record for me to create and to release," she wrote. "Not only is this the most meaningful and special record I have written, it is sincere, honest and close to my heart. But for the first time I experienced a bunch of bureaucratic BS... People do their best work when they are doing what they want, love and is natural for them, not when you are forcing them to be something that they are not."
