Butch Walker, Max Martin, Shellback, Deryck Whibley, Avril Lavigne
Goodbye Lullaby is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne. The recording sessions began in November 2008, and took place over a period of two years, concluding in October 2010. Every song on the album is written by Lavigne, with half of the album being written with co-writers like Max Martin, Evan Taubenfeld and Shellback.
It's been almost four years between this release and her last album "The Best Damn Thing". Even if the recordings started a year after that album it's a more mature album that meets the listener and the songs contain more stripped down instruments, such as the piano and acoustic guitars than on her earlier albums. The album sits on some really good tracks like the Evan Taubenfeld/Lavigne-written "Everybody Hurts" and the smash "What The Hell" where Avril collaborated with the Swedish hitmachine Max Martin. A solid rock album with a girl that have grown up a bit and sounds a little more like Alanis Morrisette later stuff more than her own sound she had 4-5 years ago.
