MOD SUN dropped an explosive new song entitled “Flames” featuring Avril Lavigne on Friday (Jan. 8).
“Flames” is latest single from MOD’s forthcoming album is a powerful, punk rock-infused anthem that features emotional, haunting vocals from the pair. This is Lavigne’s first release since her 2019 album Head Above Water, which debuted at number 13 on the Billboard 200.
“Avril Lavigne has one of my favorite voices in music,” MOD SUN said. “It’s so strong and confident, yet filled with emotion and one-of-a-kind inflections that only her voice can do. This song holds a lot more weight than meets the eye. There’s a very deep message within it.”
“Mod and I had an immediate connection from the first day in the studio,” said Lavigne. “He’s an incredible artist and producer. This is the first of many. Proud of what we made with FLAMES.”
MOD is also gearing up for the release of his first movie project, “Downfalls High,” with frequent collaborator Machine Gun Kelly.
