We’ve heard plenty from Lily Allen since she releasedIt’s Not Me, It’s You in 2009, but not very much of it was music-related, because that, the big mouth songstress said, she was done with. Except apparently she’s not.
Last night Allen announced on Twitter that she is back in the studio, thus ending her self-imposed hiatus. “you will be pleased to know that i am currently in the f****** studio with [It’s Not Me, It’s You producer] @GregKurstin so SHUT UP PETER!” she wrote, countering a from the site PopJustice about her paused career and breaking the news in one tweet. “No big deal really,” she clarified. “im just throwing shit at the wall and seeing if anything sticks.” But for eager fans, any news of new music is good news enough.
Allen has kept plenty busy in her break from music: she launched a clothing rental store with her sister; started her own record label, a Sony imprint called In the Name Of (Brooklyn’s Cults were her first signee); and, after suffering through several very public miscarriages, she gave birth to her first child, Ethel Mary.
