Artist Spotlight- Lily Allen


As I mentioned in last week’s post, Lily Allen is putting out a new album, Sheezus, in May. Most of the details are in the previous post but in short- this is exciting news since it’s been 5 years since Allen’s last album. Also, the three singles off this upcoming one are pretty much all I’m listening to right now, which makes the wait even more unbearable. 

"Air Balloon" is a super catchy tune that in a way reminds me of M.I.A’s "Paper Planes" (mainly just the na na na na na na’s). "Our Time" is slower but still makes you want to sing a long, a perfect going out anthem. "Hard Out Here," which came out about 4 months ago, is a raunchy, satirical, women’s anthem that pokes fun at current celebrity trends (like her album title, Sheezus is doing with Kanye West’s Yeezus). Another reason why I love Allen, she tells it like it is. Crossing my fingers that these three singles aren’t all the album has to offer.

In preparation for new Lily, here is a playlist with her best songs. Also, check out her video for “Our Time” in the link below. It’s really weird and funny and I’m not sure why, but I love it.
