Lily Allen has agreed with a fan who described her new songs as "docile pop rubbish".

The singer, who will mark her return from musical 'retirement' when she releases new album 'Sheezus' in May, has released three new singles in recent months as well as a cover of Keane's 'Somewhere Only We Know', which featured on the soundtrack of John Lewis' TV advertising campaign over Christmas. Speaking to a fan on Twitter yesterday (March 10), Allen claimed radio stations and label bosses are keeping her "better" songs under wraps.

Tweeting about Allen's recent output, Twitter user Reg Wilding wrote: "@lilyallen's new music is actually docile pop rubbish. So disappointing. She properly just wrote some rubbish to cash some cheques."

In an unexpected move, Allen replied to the fan, stating: "What you've heard so far yes. All I can do is do my best, the labels and the radio stations won't play the better stuff."


Earlier this year Allen expressed worry that Kanye West might react negatively to her referencing his 2013 album 'Yeezus' with her new album title. The singer, who won Best Solo Artist at last week's NME Awards With Austin, Texas, named her third album as an homage to the rapper.
