Lily Allen, we hope these recording-new-album reports are true

Lily Allen listen up - we REALLY hope these new album rumours are true.

It's feels like an age since we had any new Lily Allen tracks to singalong to.

And so we've got awfully excited this Easter Sunday at the news that the 'Smile' singer is back in the recording studio.

According to the Daily Star Sunday Lily - who announced she was bowing out of music back in 2009 - is working on a third album.

The 26-year-old was spotted at the RAK studios in St Johns Wood, London, last week and apparently has got the bug back after writing for the new Bridget Jones Musical.

According to industry insiders, her new songs are going to take a very different turn - with the singer tapping into her experiences over the past few years of getting married and having a baby.

Since leaving the pop world the singer has launched her own clothing range with her sister, Lucy In Disguise, got married to her longterm boyfriend Sam Cooper and had a baby, little Ethel.

Only last week Lily Allen was seen out and about for the first time since she gave birth.
