Avril Lavigne checked in with fans on her official web site on Sunday (January 31), talking about how her new single ‘Alice’ came about. The Canadian pop rock singer tells readers:
I just wanted to check in and share a bit of what’s going on with me right now. I am so excited! I feel very lucky to be a part of Tim Burton’s new film Alice In Wonderland.
It all started off with me designing an Abbey Dawn/Alice In Wonderland collaboration for my fashion line at Kohls. I was working at the Disney offices going though graphic images from the movie for my designs and getting up to speed on the movie project. I was really inspired and excited about the film at that moment, so I asked Disney if they would like me to write the theme song for the film. They went back to Tim and he said yeah give it a go.
I was so excited when I got the news! I sat down on my piano immediately and wrote the song.
