The cover for singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne's fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby, was revealed today. The album is set to be released by RCA Records on March 8, 2011. Lavigne will debut the album's first single What the Hell on New Years Eve during Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve.
The cover features a photograph of Lavigne in a antique dress and sitting on top of a grand piano. It is definitely a more sophisticated look for the young artist. It reminds me of something Sarah McLachlan would do. And perhaps that is because McLachlan did do it earlier this year for the cover of her album Laws of Illusion (right).
I do not have credits for art direction and photography for Goodbye Lullaby. I think that McLachlan pulled off the "barefoot in a vintage gown" look a bit better than Lavigne manages to do.
