Lily Allen has confirmed that she is working on new music.
Allen announced her retirement from the pop world two years ago and, aside from a flurry of rumours that she could make a comeback as a country artist, has largely stayed away from the music industry ever since.
Now however she has confirmed that she is working on new material, responding to a question on Twitter.com/Lilyrosecooper about when she would be recording new music by saying: “You will be pleased to know that I am currently in the studio with Greg Kurstin. No big deal really, I’m just throwing stuff at the wall and seeing if anything sticks.”
Kurstin, who worked on Allen’s two albums along with Mark Ronson, has also acted as a producer for the likes of Ladyhawke, Kelly Clarkson, Ke$ha, Foster The People and Marina And The Diamonds.
Allen released her last studio album, ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’, in 2009. She gave birth to her and her husband Sam Cooper’s first child, Ethel Mary, in November last year and also recently turned her hand to running a London fashion store, Lucy In Disguise. Meanwhile her songs for the new musical version of Bridget Jones’ Diary are set to be heard this year.
