Lily Allen – “Something’s Not Right” & “Little Soldier”
Advance buzz on the new megabudget Peter Pan movie Pan is really, really bad. But even if the movie turns out to be a massive dog turd, at least it will be the vehicle by which two new Lily Allen songs enter the world. Allen ended a long silence last year, returning to mixed reviews with the album Sheezus. And now she’s contributed the songs “Something’s Not Right” and “Little Soldier” to the Pan soundtrack. “Something’s Not Right” is a tinkly kids’-movie ballad, which seems like a far cry from anything she’s ever done before. “Little Soldier,” meanwhile, is a skittery, understated club-pop song. Allen worked on both songs with Keane frontman Tim Rice-Oxley, and if you’ve got Spotify, you can hear both below.
The Pan soundtrack is out now on WaterTower Music, and it also includes the movie’s cast singing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Blitzkrieg Bop,” which are both worse than you can ever possibly imagine.
