Listen to “All I Wanted,” the new song featuring Avril Lavigne and Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus

Avril Lavigne is getting back to her pop-punk roots and has joined forces with Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus to release a pop-punk nugget called on “All I Wanted.” The song, which appears on Lavigne’s new album “Love Sux,” is available now on all streaming platforms, as is Lavgine’s new album.

“All I Wanted” isn’t the first taste of new music off “Love Sux.” Previously, Lavigne released the singles “Love It When You Hate Me” (featuring blackbear) and “Bite Me.” The upcoming record was produced by Travis Barker of Blink-182, along with help from John Feldmann and MOD SUN, the latter being Lavigne’s current boyfriend. Barker also is also releasing the album through his DTA Records and performs drums on it. Stream “All I Wanted” at the end of the article.

In addition to having Hoppus on her new track, Lavigne is also tapping the Blink-182 musician to participate in the upcoming film adaptation of her 2002 pop hit, “Sk8er Boi.” No release date has been set for the film, but it’s currently in production.

Of the film adaptation of “Sk8er Boi,” Lavinge recently told ET Canada, “This is something that I’ve been working on for a while and I’m really excited.” She added, “I am definitely hitting up my musician friends to make cameos in this. … I was talking to Mark Hoppus the other day. I was like, ‘Mark, you have to make a cameo in my Sk8er Boi movie,’ and he was like, ‘I’m in!’ … I felt like he could be like a cool teacher or something in it.”

Hoppus was in the news last year for his battle with cancer, which he has since overcome. No word yet on what’s up ahead for Blink-182, but there have long been rumors that estranged guitarist Tom DeLonge could rejoin the group at some point.
