Lily Allen, who said back in June that she was “throwing shit at the wall and seeing if anything sticks” as regards a potential new solo record, has now advanced to “tinkering away” at said LP. So, that’s progress, I think. It appears the now-pregnant singer is still in the studio with pop songwriter Greg Kurstin, and is aiming to release something that’s preferably “good”, but ideally “amazing”, in 2013.
She tells NME: “I’m not going to put anything out until I’ve got an end product which I think’s amazing – or, you know, good. I don’t think there’s going to be anything out in the next few months. But hopefully in the next year”.
Allen adds that her new material “definitely will” feature themes about her experiences as a parent. Not surprising really; after all, it’d be weird if it didn’t, and she was still singing strictly about crack whores.
