Avril Lavigne is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her debut album, Let Go, with a new deluxe edition, featuring six bonus tracks. One of the additions to the album is Lavigne’s “Breakaway,” a song she originally wrote for Let Go but ultimately went to Kelly Clarkson, whose version became a hit in 2004. For the new version of “Breakaway,” Lavigne restored some of the original lyrics, which reference her childhood in Canada. You can take a listen – here.
The rest of the bonus material on the Deluxe Edition of Let Go comprises five b-sides and other rare tracks, including “Why” — the b-side to Lavigne’s breakout hit “Complicated” — and “Get Over It,” the b-side to “Sk8er Boi”. Along with the digital release of the Let Go 20th anniversary edition, a special double-LP vinyl version is expected to arrive Jan. 27, 2023.
Lavigne released her seventh studio album Love Sux in February, which was co-produced by Travis Barker and Lavigne’s fiancé, Mod Sun and features contributions from Machine Gun Kelly, Blackbear, and Barker’s Blink-182 bandmate Mark Hoppus.
