Lily Allen To Duet With Donovan

Lily Allen is set to duet with Donovan.

The legendary 60s singer/songwriter wants the 'Not Fair' singer to appear alongside him when he tours next year.

He told BANG Showbiz: "Lily Allen I like, yeah sure, all the young boys and girls that are coming up with their own songs. Singer songwriters I love. It would be great to play live with her."

When asked if he was planning a collaboration with Lily, he replied: "I'm hoping to do so on my tour - there will be an open invitation to young songwriters in the capitals of the world I'm playing in to join me onstage so I can highlight what they're doing."

Donovan also revealed he prefers working with female musicians and is looking forward to discovering new talent when he is on the road.

The 'Mellow Yellow' singer added: "I collaborate mostly with girls because of the goddess aspect. The girls work better with me than the boys. There are many throughout the world which I am going to discover I am sure."

Donovan - who was friends with The Beatles at the height of their fame - was honoured at the BMI London Awards on Tuesday (06.10.09) where he picked up the BMI Icon accolade for his songwriting skills.
