Avril Lavigne Finds a New Home at Epic Records

Avril Lavigne is feeling oh-so good about reuniting with the man who originally signed her, L.A. Reid. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ‘What the Hell’ hitmaker has moved from RCA Records over to Epic Records, both of which are subsidiaries of Sony.

Lavigne confirmed the news via her Facebook wall, including a personal shout out to Mr. Reid who signed her way back when. “I am now on Epic Records and finally working with L.A. Reid again (he signed me when I was 15) re-inspired : ),” the 27-year-old songstress wrote to her fans.

There is no doubt that Lavigne is feeling positive about the move. She was outspoken about her struggles with RCA, who repeatedly delayed Lavigne’s latest album ‘Goodbye Lullaby’ over the course of two years before it was actually released to the public. ‘Goodbye Lullaby’ was also quite the disappointment in the album sales department, moving only 300,000 copies since March 2011 — these numbers are far-cry from the 6 million copies of ‘Let Go’ that were sold back when Lavigne dropped the LP in 2002.

Hopefully, Lavigne will nestle in quite nicely with the Epic family, which also boasts names like Fiona Apple, Sara Bareilles, and Oh Land on its roster. Mr. Reid will undoubtedly have Lavigne’s back, and if the Epic Chairman/producer’s laundry list of chart-topping records is any indication, the Canadian singer’s next project will be as big as her fiery personality.
