Lily Allen collaborates with Robbie Williams

‘Smile’ star also begins her US offensive

Lily Allen is to feature on Robbie Williams’ new album.

Allen sang on three of the former Take That star’s new songs before she was famous.

Speaking to The Herald Sun, Allen said: “I was recording with Mark Ronson, and he was working on Robbie‘s album. It was before anything happened with me. He needed a female vocalist. I said fine and did it and I think Robbie‘s quite pleased now.

“I think they sound pretty good, though I can’t actually remember what they’re called or how they go.”

It seems Lily Allen is also hoping to succeed where her collaborator failed and break the US.

Her album ‘Alright, Still’ will be released by major label Capitol in 2007, and Allen has lined up two dates across the Atlantic:

Los Angeles Troubadour (October 14)

Chicago Double Door (16)

More dates will be announced soon.
