Avril Lavigne Hits the Studio With Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun | Billboard

Additional pics show Kelly recording vocals as Lavigne hangs in the background and Lavigne at the mic taking encouragement from the Tickets to My Downfall rap-rocker, whose recent album found him delving into the kind of pop-punk Lavigne has made her signature for more than two decades.

Earlier this month, Lavigne posted a video of her taking a spin on a new pink custom motorcycle that included an update about the sessions for the follow-up to her emotional 2019 album Head Above Water. In addition to riding around, she also included images from her earlier studio sessions with Mod Sun and album producer/Goldfinger singer/guitarist John Feldman, who has also produced recent songs and records by Good Charlotte, Blink-182, 311, Ashley Tisdale and Korn.

The Lavigne/MGK mind-meld is not as strange as it might seem; back in March, MGK posted a video where he played a bit of Avril’s signature 2002 breakthrough hit “Sk8er Boi’ on guitar, just months after the apparent pals were photographed hanging out with We The Kings singer Travis Clark.
