Before writing this post about Avril Lavigne’s latest single, ‘Wish You Were Here’ we wrote a particularly scathing line about how shit she’s gotten recently. Having taken one more listen to the song, that comment was promptly deleted.

See the thing is, ‘What The Hell’ was essentially amazing, but we were bitterly disappointed when the rest of the album ‘Goodbye Lullaby’ didn’t meet that standard. Despite a heavy Max Martin influence in the album’s production, the tracks just didn’t do anything for us, they were forgettable and skipable.

‘Wish You Were Here’ as a standalone single is actually a really solid effort from the Canadian popstar. It’s a classic Lavigne ballad, a bit of attitude mixed with an essentially sad sentiment. The ‘daaaaaamn, daaaaaaamn, daaaaamn’ hook gets a bit irritating after a while and the chorus is ridiculously repetitive but all in all it’s a rather nice little ditty.

‘Wish You Were Here’ is out to download right now from the album ‘Goodbye Lullaby’ and will be released in the UK on 26th September.
