Lily Allen has been in hiding for a couple of months now since she gave birth to her baby girl, Ethel Mary, in January. Musically, she has also been out of the charts for a few years, however reports are out today from Digital Spy that she may be working on some new material for an upcoming third album. She was spotted at RAK Studios in St John’s Wood, London last week, trying out different sounds and writing new tracks for a future album.
Her last album was in 2009, It’s Not Me, It’s You, and since then Lily has taken a real break from music. She launched her own record company and the Lucy In Disguise fashion label while on a break from her recording career. She married her beau, Sam Cooper and had her baby. Lily and Sam also suffered a tragic miscarriage before Ethel was born. Their unborn baby boy was miscarried at the late stage of 6 months the year before Ethel came into the world. They have been through a lot together in the last few years, and I really thought that she was going to put her music career aside, at least for now.
So much has clearly changed in Lily’s life since her last album, and I’m sure she has a whole new perspective on life and music. I am expecting her new album to have a more mature sound, and maybe include tracks that reflect her new role as a mother and wife, and maybe even reflect some of the sadness that she has experienced.
I am so excited that Lily is returning to music because she is a serious talent and just such a lovely person. Since she married, Lily has been going under her new name, Lily Rose Cooper, so… maybe her new album will be under that name too? Are you excited to have Lily back?!
