Lily Allen readies her return.
The British pop star hasn't released a proper album since 2014's Sheezus, but all that's about to change. The "F**k You" singer is planning on dropping her new LP in June, and it includes personal songs about her the dissolution of her marriage from ex-husband Sam Cooper, her children and the current tumultuous social and political climate. “Weirdly this album is quite insular. There are a couple of songs that are [political]… but mainly it has to do with me and my relationship with my children, the breakdown of my marriage, substance abuse etc,” she tells Jolyon & Heydon on their News Roast podcast. You can listen to the entire 90-minute chat below:
In light of Donald Trump becoming America's 45th President, Allen teamed up with producer Mark Ronson for a cover of Rufus Wainwright's "Going To A Town."
“We’ve been writing together again on the new record," Ronson told The Sun last year . "I feel like they are some of the best songs she’s written. Her voice sounds incredible. The stuff I’m working on is some of her most honest and heartbreaking music ever. She writes so honestly you can feel it.”
In September, Allen Tweeted fans her new tunes were "closer than you think." That couldn't ring more true.
We are closer than you think.....
