Lily Allen to play album launch gig; is ‘f-ing frustrated’ over comeback campaign

Allen will play in West London on April 28

Lily Allen is to launch her album Sheezus with a one-off gig at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

The show, which takes place on Monday April 28, will be Allen’s first headline performance in four years. Allen’s new album, ‘Sheezus’, will be released the following week (May 5).

Meanwhile, Allen has once again hit out at her label for the direction of her comeback campaign so far. Speaking to at Vogue Festival, she said she said: “What you have heard on the radio station so far, the contribution of my album is very much the more beige, saccharine elements to what I have made.”

She continued: “The reason for that is because the people in control of the radio stations, the people that are in control of the record companies, are too scared to put themselves on the line in case someone gets offended. If I said to my record company I really want to go with this song, they would say, ‘Sure, here is £5 for the video’.”
