Returning after a four year break from music, Lily Allen has released a cover of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’.
In what can only be described as refreshing from a musical artist, Allen explained to Q Magazine what she hopes to achieve in her new music, namely avoiding pop clichés.
“It’s no use just singing about being famous, or rhyming ‘crazy’ with ‘baby’ a million times over,” she said. “I still want to write about things that are relevant to other people.
“And I like to be frank, whether it’s about sex or politics or feminism… but if people want to call it controversial, then, well, that’s their thing.”
The English recording artist went to explain that she actually believed it would be an even longer hiatus than this four years and was surprised that she wanted to be back so soon.
Thankfully, for the musical world, Allen is releasing her very distinct style again and you can currently listen “Hard out Here” now.
