On Friday, the couple dropped a visual for the stripped-down, acoustic version of their duet "Flames," which will be released off of Mod Sun's upcoming Internet Killed the Rockstar Deluxe album (out May 7). In the video, Lavigne, 36, and Mod Sun, 34, can be seen performing the duet in an intimate, dimly lit room. They are joined by a glockenspiel player and two string players, with Lavigne on guitar. "Flames is a very special song," Lavigne says in a statement. "I love how the acoustic version turned out. It really brings another layer of emotion to the song." Mod Sun, whose stage moniker stands for "Movement On Dreams Stand Under None," adds that he "wanted to offer a bright side to the story" with the acoustic version of "Flames." "I felt like sonically I could paint that landscape through acoustic guitar and a string section," he says. "I wanted to make something that felt like we were performing in your living room."
