Lily Allen Set For Amazing Return


Lily Allen Divine Comedy Neil Hannon

Lily Allen can do "amazing things" when she comes out of retirement, according to Divine Comedy singer Neil Hannon.

The pop star is currently on a self-imposed hiatus after becoming disillusioned with the music business but the 'National Express' singer insists she can go onto to great things if she decides to return.

He said: "I genuinely admire Lily Allen's lyrics and sound, you know the tunes generally have a lot of people involved, but she makes some wonderfully pithy comments. I'd prefer it if they were more outward looking, rather than always inward. But she's definitely a writer who could do amazing things in the future, if she does. She doesn't seem to want to though."

Belle And Sebastian Finish Album


Belle And Sebastian Divine Comedy Neil Hannon

Belle And Sebastian have finished work on their much-anticipated follow-up to THE LIFE PURSUIT.

Writing on the band's website, singer Stuart Murdoch said their eighth album – entitled GOD HELP THE GIRL – is almost finished.

Murdoch writes: "I'm aiming to master all the 'God Help The Girl' songs by the end of November. I think there are 18 of them. It's a good feeling to think about making records.

He added that it has been so long since he was involved with all aspects of putting out a record, he suspects "the landscape has changed".

Murdoch wondered if younger fans of the band would still be excited at the prospect of a new record coming out as "age dulls most thrills".

The forthcoming album will feature guest contributions from THE Divine Comedy'S Neil Hannon and SMOOSH'S Asy.

A new BBC sessions album by the band is scheduled for release on November 17th.
