Avril Lavigne has accused her record label bosses of holding up her next album, even though the project has been completed for over a year.
The Complicated singer is set to release the follow-up to 2007’s The Best Damn Thing, but admits the as-yet-untitled offering has been mired in delays, which she blames on executives at her label RCA.

But despite ongoing problems with record chiefs, she’s adamant the music is the “most meaningful and special” she’s recorded to date.

In a post on her official blog, Lavigne rants, “I’m done with my 4th record!!! Well, actually I have been done for a year… and now my record company have finally decided to release it. OMG (oh my God).. How nice! Thanks guys.

“I have been dying to get back out on the road and do what I love the most… PLAY MUSIC. I know you guys have been waiting for a long time… and so have I, but not by choice. I have been sitting with this record for a year now.

“This has been a really difficult record for me to create and to release. Not only is this the most meaningful and special record I have written, it is sincere, honest and close to my heart. But for the first time I experienced a bunch of bureaucratic BS (bulls**t). People do their best work when they are doing what they want, love and is natural for them, not when you are forcing them to be something that they are not.”
