Lily Allen Back In The Recording Studio: Why We're Craving Her Return (VIDEOS)

Noughties music superstar Lily Allen has revealed she's back in the recording studio.

The Smile singer previously insisted she had no plans to make another album after the release of her second, It's Not Me, It's You, in 2009.

But Lily revealed on Twitter: "You will be pleased to know that I am currently in the f***ing studio with @GregKurstin."

Producer Greg worked with Lily on It's Not Me, It's You, which included two singles laden with her trademark honest and comical lines - The Fear and Not Fair.

However, Lily, 27, went on to play down her return to recording, adding: "No big deal really, I'm just throwing s*** at the wall and seeing if anything sticks."

But isn't a return to the charts from Lily just what the British music industry needs right now?

At the time of going to press, Cheryl Cole is currently sitting at the top spot with her catchy but meaningless single Call My Name and Carly Rae Jepsen's ridiculously popular but substance-less Call Me Maybe (having the word 'call' in a song title evidently the current recipe for success) is still dominating the airwaves.

The closest to quality, original British song-writing we have in the charts is currently coming from Brit Award winners Ed Sheeran and Emeli Sande, both talented vocalists who can sing about something other than calling.

Thus it's about time Lily and her distinctive sound made a reappearance. Who else has the boldness to sing about an inability to get pleasure from their boyfriend, without it coming across in a slutty Rihanna-type way?

Satirisng the world she's part of, Lily sang in The Fear: "I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless, because everyone knows that's how you get famous."

And she also wasn't afraid to air her family's dirty laundry. In her song Alfie she sings about her younger brother: "Oh deary me, my brother's in his room smoking weed."

Her honesty was a breath of fresh air in a chart full of sickly sweet and pretentious lyrics and it's about time it returned - so here's hoping some of that sh*t does stick.
