‘It’s been quite a shock,’ said the ‘Hard Out Here’ singer

Lily Allen has revealed that she shocked herself by returning to music so soon.

Speaking to Q, the ‘Hard Out Here’ singer admitted that she had always planned on making music again, but she didn’t think she would return until at least a couple of more years. “I wasn’t surprised to come back again, but I was surprised to want to so soon,” she said.

Allen quit the music industry four years ago to start a family with her husband, Sam Cooper, and now has two children, Ethel, who is two-years-old, and 12-month-old Marnie. Speaking of her return, she added: “It’s been quite a shock…a lot has changed in four years.’’

Meanwhile, Lily Allen has has revealed that one song on her new album is about David Cameron, Rebekah Brooks and the phone hacking scandal. Titled ‘Chipping Norton’, Allen said she wrote the song about a party she attended in 2011 at publicist Matthew Freud’s house, held days before the Milly Dowler phone hacking scandal broke.

Allen also recently hit out at showbiz culture, calling her famous peers “Botoxed celebrity idiots” and noting her disappointment with current stars for not being as exciting as the ones she grew up admiring.

The pop star, who went to Number One in 2013 with a cover of Keane‘s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ and Number Nine with comeback single proper ‘Hard Out Here’, is yet to announce full details of her third album, which she previously told NME will be released in 2014
