Published Sep 18, 2008Following a long string of speculation as to the whereabouts of her sophomore album that had her blaming her own label, UK pop sensation Lily Allen has finally released some details. Titled Stuck On The Naughty Step, the album will be out on February 9 via EMI.
In the meantime, she promises on her MySpace blog that there will be "bits and bobs flying around before then, including a viral video she plans to shoot in the next few weeks.
She then added some of her classic personal insight to the process:
I am so excited, were getting all the artwork and stuff done and coming up with new and interesting ideas. I am trying really hard to do this album with integrity and I want you all to know that it has been thought about by me, not just some thrown together last minute industry bullshizz.
I hope you'll all love it as much as I do, I'm working on extra stuff in the studio at the moment , it seems making an album isn't enough these days, some websites (not naming any!) wont put an album on their front page unless you give them exclusive tracks, not that i'm complaining, I am at my happiest in the studio so it works well for me, I just don't want to put out sub standard stuff . I always thought an album was a body of work in itself. you take it or leave it . You wouldn't say to a painter "yeah i love the naked ladies ,but would you mind painting their hair blonde instead of brown, and making their tits a bit bigger?" or " the trees are really pretty, a few more leaves perhaps?" Maybe you would actually , ha ha .
