Canadian pop-rocker Avril Lavigne releases her fifth studio album this Friday 1st November - and you can listen to it right here before it hits the shops!

The self-titled album was largely co-written by Lavigne's husband Chad Kroeger (he of Nickelback fame), who lends his vocal cords to the track 'Let Me Go', and also features a guest appearance from Marilyn Manson on the track 'Bad Girl'. Scroll down to listen to it!

Lavigne maintains that this album will have a harder edge to that which was on her 2011 effort Goodbye Lullaby, saying: "Goodbye Lullaby was more mellow, [but] the next one will be pop and more fun again. I already have a song that I know is going to be a single, I just need to re-record it!"

Enough chit-chat, go get those headphones!
