Lily Allen

Lily Allen has signed the first band to her In The Name Of record label, Brooklyn-based indie-pop duo Cults. Having released a seven-inch EP last year through Forest Family Records, one of the tracks from that release will also be their debut single on In The Name Of – ‘Go Outside’ – which will be released on 20 Feb. They are also due to release their debut album in May.

You’ll also find them playing live at these dates:
18 Feb: London, Bush Hall (with Yuck and Guards)
22 Feb: London, Madame Jojo’s
25 Feb: London, The Lexington

In other Lily Allen label news, The Sun is reporting that its parent company Sony Music (In The Name Of will actually be a subsidiary of Sony UK division Columbia) has given Lily a £100,000 a year salary.
