Lily Allen reveals ‘unofficial’ World Cup song ‘Bass Like Home’ – listen

The new song does not feature on latest album 'Sheezus'

Lily Allen has revealed new song ‘Bass Like Home’ – which she describes as being an “unofficial World Cup song”.

The song does not make explicit reference to football or the World Cup, bar a mention of Paul ‘Gazza’ Gascoigne, but is more broadly an ode to Britain and things Allen loves about the nation including Shakespeare, John Lennon, the Queen, lager and service stations.

Tweeting about the song, Allen wrote: “My unofficial #worldcup song BASS LIKE HOME.”

The track does not feature on Allen’s latest album ‘Sheezus’ and is tagged on SoundCloud as “Kid Harpoon ideas”, a reference to the producer and songwriter behind recent hits for Jessie Ware, Shakira and Florence + The Machine.

Lily Allen will perform live at Glastonbury festival later this month and has stated that she is already working on her next album. Allen says she is “halfway through” a fourth LP but admitted she was unsure she would release any new music after that.
