Evan T., to put it simply, is one of the best damn things that ever happened to Avril Lavigne. A Baltimore-bred songwriter and guitarist, Evan has played a key role in crafting Avril’s sound both live and in the studio, with writing credits on songs as far back as her 2004 hit “Don’t Tell Me”. More recently, he’s recently been supporting Avril on her Canadian tour, and the dynamic duo has been closing each show with their duet on Evan’s wistful song “Best Years Of Our Lives”. If you’re a Canuck, you may have caught a live performance of the song, but we’ve got the exclusive premiere of the official studio recording. Listen to it below, then go grab it on iTunes.

Evan T. featuring Avril Lavigne – “Best Years Of Our Lives”

“Never thought this would ever end / Never thought I’d lose my best friend / Everything is different now / Can we stop the world from turning?” Evan sings, striking a tone that balances introspection with a touch of hope. (What more could a gorgeous birthday girl ask for?)
