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.
