She was poised for a huge pop comeback.
And although Lily Allen has enjoyed moderate success with her third album Sheezus, the chart placement of her singles have left a lot to be desired.
Latest single ‘URL Badman’ peaked at number 93 earlier this month with the 28-year-old suggesting that perhaps her music hasn’t been up to scratch this time around.
She told The Mirror: “Maybe the songs aren’t good enough this time, who knows? I just know I can’t wait to get back into the studio.”
Lily also admitted that she regrets the choice of singles released from the LP this year.
She explained: “The first thing I came back with was ‘Hard Out Here’ and that was important to me.
“A real statement of intent, even though you couldn’t put it on the radio over here because it had too much swearing.
“I thought it did really well. And then management and the label chose to go with ‘Air Balloon’, and I just think starting with something really aggressive and in your face and then going in a different direction… people need to know what they are getting.”
Lily also suggested that she had put too much trust in others to make the right decision for her, something that she feels could have been down to her head space at the time after giving birth.
She continued: “I put my trust in other people, which I don’t usually do.
“I usually go with my own gut feeling but maybe I wasn’t feeling as confident as I have in the past because of all the hormones.”
