A lot’s gone down since last we checked in with the Lily Allen Programme. Like going whole hog with her Blondie love via a bottle of peroxide. Also, today lucky subscribers of Lily’s MySpace blog post alert got this message:
So , I’m a blondie and loving it and I’ve been working hard in the studio . I posted a couple of new songs on the player for you all to have a listen to and get an idea of my new direction , they are just at a demo stage so don’t be too hard on them . I’ll probably swap some others around and play you stuff as I do it in the studio , like i did last time round . And ther’ll also be a new mixtape soon , I hope you enjoy this shizzle . Aiiight

New direction, yes. Lily’s no longer Alright, Still; gone is the party bounce, the ska doobies, and syncopated cadences that marked her breakthrough material. “I Don’t Know” and “I Could Say” are synth-pop tunes, the smooth and airy sort that some of your favorite new wavers have turned to in their latter day states. Which, in light of recent events, is an acceptable and expected place for prematurely matured Lily to be, between the personal life tragedies and professional setbacks. So yes, we’ll take it easy on you Lily! But we’re hoping a little more time in the studio might bring a little shine to this shizzle. Have a listen at MySpace.
