Avril Lavigne can’t wait to debut the music video for her latest single Here’s to Never Growing Up because she thinks the prom concept is “awesome”.

The 28-year-old Canadian singer released her latest single Here’s to Never Growing Up last month. Since then her followers have been waiting eagerly for a visual interpretation of the track.

Her band wears tuxedos in the video and Avril is dressed in frills in the prom-themed clip, conjuring images of her video for 2002 single Complicated.

But the Sk8er Boi singer admits she can’t take credit for the idea.

"I had my own concept for this video,” she told MTV News.

“And then last minute, we changed it because the director [Robert Hales] came up with a concept and the concept was just 'prom'. And that was really it."

The simplicity of the concept was appealing. Avril is thrilled with how it’s turned out.

"I thought, 'That's an awesome idea,' 'cause we can dress up, the band can be in cool tuxedos. That was way more fun than I anticipated,” she said.

Avril’s next album will be her fifth solo venture and the first since her 2011 offering, Goodbye Lullaby.

The album was co-written by Avril’s fiancé, Chad Kroeger.

The Nickelback frontman and the songstress announced their engagement last August after one month of dating.

The official music video for Here’s to Never Growing Up is scheduled for release later this week.
