Lily Allen changes professional name to Lily Rose Cooper

Singer confirms she is heading back into the studio

Lily Allen is changing her professional name to her married name of Lily Rose Cooper.

The singer has also confirmed that she is heading back into the studio to record new material she has been working on over the past few months.

After announcing her retirement from the pop world two years ago, Allen tweeted back in June that she was working on new material. “It’s great to work at my own pace, with no commitments other than to make music,” she says today. “I’m excited to be heading back into the studio.”

In a statement, Allen says there are no release dates set for the new material, but that all future releases will be under the name Lily Rose Cooper.

The singer confirmed recently that she is expecting her second child – saying that she was surprised nobody guessed she was pregnant after her appearance with Professor Green at The Stone Roses‘ second Heaton Park show (June 30).

The pop sensation teamed up with the Hackney rapper to perform their 2010 single ‘Just Be Good To Green’. Their hook-up is based on Beats International’s ‘Dub Be Good To Me’, which was itself a reworking of The SOS Band’s classic ‘Just Be Good To Me’.
