Avril Lavigne is experiencing something of a career revival in Australia with a recent top 10 hit and hopes to keep the momentum going with the second single from her number one album Goodbye Lullaby.

Written and produced by noted hitmakers Max Martin and Shellback (Britney, Ke$ha etc), Smile is already shooting up the Australian iTunes download chart.

The catchy track is a throwback to the irreverence of earlier hits like sk8erboi and Girlfriend – a theme which appears to be carried through into the video.

In a recently released behind the scenes preview, Avril is seen spraying graffiti and, not surprisingly, plugging her clothing line Abbey Dawn.

Take a look and let us know what you think – is this song another hit or a big miss?
