Avril Lavigne New Album: Goodbye Lullaby || Snippets of All Songs Post 1

Goodbye Lullaby is the upcoming fourth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne. It is scheduled to be released on 8 March 2011 through RCA Records. Lavigne began recording in her home studio in November 2008 with "Black Star" only a month after completing The Best Damn Tour. To help promote her first fragrance, Black Star, Lavigne needed a short theme that would be used for the TV spots. "Black Star" was composed in a Malaysian hotel during her tour. The jingle was eventually expanded into a full song, which Rolling Stone later described as "an ethereal lullaby that turns epic with tinkling Coldplay-like pianos and soaring strings." Recording began with minimal instruments, usually starting with Lavigne singing only to acoustic guitar, with additional instruments added later. Lavigne described the process: "It’s stripped down. I love performing that way, so I really felt like it was time to make a record like that. To just make it all about the vocal and the performance, and the vibe, and the emotion." Because she has a studio in her home, Lavigne was able to compose and record at her leisure. She also used the piano to compose the majority of the songs. "The piano is more of an emotional instrument. It stirs up different emotions for me and moves me in a different way than the guitar can." By July 2009, nine tracks had been recorded,including the songs "Fine", "Everybody Hurts" and "Darlin'". Several of the tracks were written in Lavigne's youth. "Darlin'" was the second song Lavigne wrote as a 15-year-old while living in Napanee, Ontario.Lavigne stated that this album would be different from her previous work, "The other albums I've done, the songs are all over the place. This is the most consistent album all the way through."
The entire track listing for the album was revealed on 21 December 2010, after some were announced in early December. It was also announced that two songs on the album, "4 Real" and "Goodbye", were both written and produced solely by Lavigne herself. The remaining tracks were either written by Lavigne or co-written with longtime collaborators Evan Taubenfeld, Butch Walker and Max Martin. Lavigne stated that her vocals were the most important instrument to her during the album's recording, "typically the lead vocal gets buried in the track and you can’t always hear the quality, character, or emotion after a certain point. I wanted my voice to be the main instrument."

I think avril is going with a more 'country' sound in this album, more focused on her vocal ability. The First Single, What The Hell is very different from the album. Here are snippets of all the songs:

Obviously, most of the songs sound like ballads, with minimal instruments, and hr directed at her voice.

Me too.. apparently, her record label (RCA) had dragged the release from last year, mainly because of the promotion for Kelly's "All I Ever Wanted" Hopefully Avril switches labels, she would do so much better with Caoitol (Katy) or Interscope (Gaga).

I love Avril but I'm not sure if she can still sell this punk-pop teen image.
