Avril & Chad to Duet on Her New Album; Couple Ready for Upcoming Wedding

Sara De Boer/Startraks Photo via ABCNow that Avril Lavigne's new single "Here's to Never Growing Up" is out, a new album will follow, with something special for fans.  Avril says she and her fiance, Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, have immortalized their love on the new record by singing together.

Chad and Avril co-wrote several songs for the album, including the single, but she tells MTV News that he also joins her for a duet on her album, which will her fifth studio disc.  It's due in September.   Meanwhile, the couple is busy planning their wedding.

"It's going pretty smooth. My wedding planner, she knows what she is doing, but there's a lot that goes into it," Avril tells MTV.  "Planning a wedding is almost like a full-time job. There's a lot of details."

The singer revealed to E! that she's already picked out her wedding dress, so that's done, but a lot remains to take care of.  Is Chad helping out?  Avril tells E!, "Of course he's been really involved. He's also been really cool with just letting me kinda taking the wedding in the direction I want to take it in."

For his part, Chad tells E! that his involvement consists of taking in "a lot of the things that are presented to me, and I look at them on paper, and when I'm asked my opinion, I offer it very gently."  He adds, "That's the smartest thing I can possibly do because that big day is not about me. That big day is about her."  Smart man.

Avril adds that while she and Chad want the nuptials to be "a very big event," she added, "At the same time it's small and it's just close friends and close family."
