Lily Allen set to return to music as Lily-Rose Cooper | Music News

British Pop singer-songwriter Lily Allen is set to return to music, three years after the release of her sophomore album It’s Not Me It’s You. The 27 year old, who is expecting her second child with husband Sam Cooper, has discarded her stage name and will return under her married name Lily-Rose Cooper.

The singer shot to fame in 2006 with her debut single “Smile,” which reached the No. 1 spot on the UK charts. Allen’s debut album Alright Still entered the UK album charts at No. 2.

The singer made the decision to take leave music to focus on family life in 2009, the same year her sophomore album It’s Not Me It’s You was released.

“It’s not about being famous, it’s not about all the parties, it’s not about wanting to be the biggest pop star on the planet,” she explained in a 2009 interview with Grazia about her decision to step away from the spotlight. “It’s about being happy … For me, that is Sam, spending time at home, sorting out bed linen… being normal.”

As three years have now passed, the singer is heading back into the studio with Grammy-winning producer Greg Kurstin, who she worked with on her first two albums.

“It’s great to work at my own pace, with no commitments other than to make music,” she said. “I’m excited to be heading back into the studio.”

An official date for any new material has not yet been released.
