It appears that April Lavigne is a Adele Stan too. On Thursday, the pop-punk legend released a Spotify Singles cover of Adele’s soul ballad “Hello”, giving it a slight alt-rock edge thanks to her angsty vocals.
“I love Adele’s song ‘Hello’ and I’ve been dying to cover it,” Lavigne said in a statement. “The ‘Spotify Singles’ sessions were a fun opportunity to finally do this cover as well as reinvent my own song ‘Love Sux’ acoustically.”
The acoustic rendition finds Lavigne performing the title track of her album accompanied by just guitar and soft drum beats, as opposed to the punky version accompanied by electric guitar that appears on the LP.
Earlier this month, Lavigne dropped out an anniversary edition for his iconic debut album, let’s go, which included tracks that had not been made available on streaming services. At the end of last year, Adele shared her love for Lavigne’s let’s go during an Instagram Live. “You know what? I love Avril Lavigne. Her first record, I listen to it all the time,” she said. “I think it’s such a great record.”
Vine Love Sux in February, which featured a slew of collaborations, including “Bois Lie” with Machine Gun Kelly, “Love It When You Hate Me” with Blackbear, and “All I Wanted” with Mark Hoppus.
