Lily Allen hopes to release new album in March

The singer is working on the follow-up to 'It's Not Me, It's You'

Lily Allen has revealed that she could release a new album in March next year.

The LP will be her third and the follow-up to 2009’s ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’.

The singer told the Sunday People: “I’m really enjoying writing it and hope it will be ready for March. It is very different to what I’ve done before.”

Allen previously claimed that the album will feature songs about “babies and nappies”. “I wouldn’t say it’s been easy. It hasn’t been hard,” she said of the current writing sessions. “It’s just been different because my pool of inspiration is so different to what it was nine or 10 years ago.”

In October last year, Allen told NME that although she’d been “tinkering away” in the studio with producer Greg Kurstin, she would not release any music until she was satisfied the [url=]new material was “amazing”.

Last year, she unveiled her collaboration with Pink, which featured on the US singer’s last album ‘The Truth About Love’. It was Lily’s first track since she announced her intention to return to her pop career having “retired” in 2009 to concentrate on having a family, her record label and her fashion boutique.

Lily Allen gave birth to a baby girl named Marnie on January 8 of this year. Marnie is Allen’s second child following the birth of daughter Ethel in 2011.
