Avril Lavigne covered Kelly Clarkson's "Breakaway" for the new deluxe edition of her 2002 debut album Let Go.

"Breakaway" was originally written by Lavigne for Let Go, but she gave the song to Clarkson, whose recorded it for her sophomore album also named Breakaway in 2004. For the new version of "Breakaway," Lavigne restored some of the original lyrics, which reference her childhood in Canada.
