By: Chad Sweely - October 8, 2013

On Monday, October 7th, punk rock girl Avril Lavigne announced to the media that she would be releasing a duet with her husband and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger titled “Let Me Go.” This new song from the duo comes after Lavigne’s other recently debuted singles “Here’s To Never Growing Up” and “Rock N Roll.” The song is slated to be included on her new album, which will be released to the public on November 5th (Source: Yahoo! OMG).

The punk rock goddess tweeted the announcement of her latest release from her Twitter account (shown below). Shortly after her tweet, according to AceShowbiz, Lavigne broadcasted the announcement via radio on Los Angeles’ KBIG 104.3.

The song “Let Me Go” by Lavigne and Kroeger has a different “taste” to the music that the couple is individually known for (hard and punk rock, including more of a soft ballad feel. Lavigne’s “When You’re Gone” is another ballad that the punk rocker has released in the past. The theme behind the lyrics of “Let Me Go” encompasses Lavigne and Kroeger’s own relationship. Lavigne tells Yahoo! OMG “We rewrote the last chorus to put a twist on it so we end up together. Therefore, the message of the song is more the journey of love through one’s life.”

In an interview with EntertainmentWise, Lavigne was asked “You co-wrote your new single [Let Me Go] with your husband, as well as several other tracks on the record – has he been the main influence behind the record?” Lavigne replied:

“I mean sure but Chad, David Hodges and myself wrote a bunch of songs together and then at the end we brought it Mark Johnson, J Cash and then a couple of other people so we did it with a whole bunch of people.”

The ballad by Lavigne and Kroeger has created a lot of different reactions in the Twitterverse:

    It is nice. I am not particularly a fan of hers but the melody is haunting and I never realized that she had such a powerful voice. Itis good to see a married couple working together. His voice is a great compliment to hers.

    I just wanted to say that Avril Lavigne needs to do the world a really big favor and drop dead because she is nothing but an stuck up snob who doesn’t have any musical talent when it comes to singing, playing the piano, and playing the guitar. Chad Kroeger (lead guitarist and lead guitarist from the Rock band, Nickelback) shouldn’t have sang a duet along with her because in my personal opinion, she can’t carry a tune at all. She was supposed to persue on singing Country music and Folk music, but she decided to persue on singing Pop music instead. Chad can sing this song without her because he sounds perfect when he is singing it. As far as Avril’s album cover goes on her new upcoming album goes, she looks like an ugly little troll. End of story.
