Lily Allen is set to launch another assault on the charts - she has returned to the studio, three years after walking away from her pop career.
The outspoken British singer took to her Twitter.com page to confirm she has reunited with producer Greg Kurstin to work on new material, following their successful collaboration on her 2009 sophomore release It's Not Me, It's You.
Allen wrote, "You will be pleased to know I am currently in the f**king studio with Greg Kurstin. No big deal really, I'm just throwing s**t at the wall and seeing if anything sticks."
The Smile hitmaker shocked the music industry in 2009 after she told fans she was "retiring from writing, recording and touring under the name Lily Allen".
However, Allen is said to have become enthusiastic about recording again after writing tracks for the upcoming Bridget Jones' Diary stage musical.
