Lily Allen - Retired? Lily Allen Heads Back In The Studio

Lily Allen has begun plotting her comeback in the music industry, some three years after she hinted at retiring. The singer - who has sold 8 million records and is still considered to be one of the biggest British names in music - has reunited with American producer Greg Kurstin and headed back into the studio.
The pair collaborated on Allen's 2009 Ivor Novello winning chart-topper The Fear, and she told Twitter followers on Wednesday, "you will be pleased to know that i am currently in the f*cking studio with GregKurstin". She added that the sessions were "no big deal really", saying, "I'm just throwing shit at the wall and seeing if anything sticks". Fans hoping for a new album may be disappointed, though the sessions will certainly delight those who assumed Allen had left the industry behind for good. The singer landed her first number one single 'Smile' back in 2006, and went on to enjoy huge success in the charts. However, she became a favourite with the tabloids, and spoke of being disillusioned with the music industry, directing most of her ire at illegal file-sharers. She began veering away from music - opening a vintage clothing shop in Soho, and settling down with husband Sam Cooper. The couple welcomed their first child in November.
The studio sessions will also be music to the ears of Allen's record label Emi, who will be keen to get her back into the charts. Fellow songstress Adele has been busy making millions for rival label XL.
