The Horrors, Lily Allen and Lykke Li lead this week's list of new album releases (May 5).

Lily Allen marks her return to the pop music world with her third album, 'Sheezus.' The album features the singles 'Hard Out Here', 'Air Balloon' and 'Our Time' and takes its name from Kanye West's 2013 album 'Yeezus.' Earlier this year Allen expressed worry that Kanye West might react negatively to her referencing his work.

The Horrors release the long awaited follow up to 2011 record 'Skying' in the shape of 'Luminous.' Speaking in a recent interview with NME, the band revealed the inspiration behind a number of tracks from the new album. Speaking about 'I See You', bassist Rhys Webb said: "When we were writing, this track made us realise we were going in the right direction. It started to shape the final picture."

Meanwhile, Lykke Li releases her third album, 'I Never Learn.' It features the songs 'Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone', the original version of 'No Rest For The Wicked' and 'Gunshot', all of which were revealed earlier this year.

Speaking previously to NME about the record, the singer said it would be the third part in a trilogy of her albums, claiming that the album covers the "intense period" of being a woman in her 20s. "I see my albums as a trilogy, with [2007 debut] 'Youth Novels' as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter,"

Elsewhere, there are new albums from Tune-Yards, Brian Eno & Karl Hyde, Gruff Rhys, Fatima Al Qadiri and Oliver Wilde while Yvette release their debut album 'Process'.
