Avril Lavigne signs to BMG

By | Published on Thursday 2 March 2017


BMG has signed Avril Lavigne to a new record deal that will cover everywhere in the entire world except Japan, where she doesn’t need BMG’s help. The musician is currently working on material for her sixth album, due for release later this year.

“For this album I have a new team behind me, and I just signed to BMG”, says Lavigne. “At this point in my career and in my life I just wanted to put fresh energy around me and I feel like I’m having somewhat of a rebirth in my life. I’ve been faced with a lot, gone through a lot emotionally. The whole writing process has been therapeutic and empowering. This album is a natural process for me and it’s coming from a very honest place. My hope is that it is an inspiration to many people”.

BMG’s US President Repertoire & Marketing Zach Katz adds: “We are excited and proud to welcome Avril to the team at BMG. She is truly a rare talent with a highly accomplished career; uncompromising in her vision, an incomparable songwriter and performer, as well as a unique and real female force. Avril has always been a leader and a voice for her fans and generation – we look forward to furthering our collaboration”.
