Two years in the making, Goodbye Lullaby is singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne’s fourth studio album. Lavigne premiered the first single “What the Hell” on New Years Eve during “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve.”
Lavigne worked with longtime collaborators Deryck Whibley, Evan Taubenfeld, and Butch Walker, as well as songwriter/producer Max Martin. Lavigne continues to share her personal experiences through her writing and music, and Goodbye Lullaby is a further evolution of this, propelled by a more raw and organic sound.
Among its upbeat tracks are “What the Hell,” an unabashed embrace of fun and freedom, and “Stop Standing There,” fueled by an early-‘50s girl-group feel. The album runs the gamut of emotions: Lavigne expresses her gratitude for special people in her life in the rocker “Smile,” explores the dynamics of a relationship in “Push,” shows her vulnerable side in “Wish You Were Here,” and finds the strength to close one chapter of her life and move on to the next in the title track “Goodbye.” From the Label

It was filled with emotion and you can defiantly feel and relate to most of the songs. I actually found myself crying to some songs. I loved it so much. I just don't know how to describe what it makes me feel. It's just good.
