Lily Allen - It's Not Me, It's You: Wikipedia Album Entry

It's Not Me, It's You is the second studio album by British pop singer-songwriter Lily Allen. It was released in the United Kingdom on February 9, 2009, and on February 10 in North America.

Allen recorded most of the album at Eagle Rock Studios in Los Angeles with producer Greg Kurstin of the band The Bird and The Bee. Of the songwriting process, she said "Greg builds the chords up and I just sing along and make up the words and then once you've got the bare song, we decide which way we're gonna go with the production."
