Lily Allen first appeared on the UK music scene in the summer of 2006 with her debut single 'Smile', which went on to worldwide acclaim and hit the number one spot in the UK. Her accompanying debut album, Alright, Still, went on to sell over 2.5 million copies around the globe, broke into the top twenty on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart in America, and earned Lily five BRIT nominations.
Lily's sophomore album, It's Not Me, It's You, was released to international acclaim in 2009, and cemented her position as one of Britain's most successful popstars and lyricists of all time, outselling her debut album and seeing Lily win an array of awards around the world, which included a BRIT Award for Best Female in 2010, and three prestigious Ivor Novello Awards including Songwriter Of The Year for 'The Fear'.
When you listen to her new album Sheezus it sounds just like a sharp swipe; like a decade of experience, heartbreak, joy, mischief, pain, trouble and fun: the whole of your twenties wrapped in sleek, brilliant pop music. Somehow, after seven years in this terrible racket, this sausage factory of the soul, she never lost sight of herself. She’s a wife and a mother and a Global Recording Star (as they say in America) and somehow, still, she’s that saucer-eyed 20-year-old pixie, galloping across a field.
