Lily Allen has been in Nashville working on new music and admitted it's "quite intimidating" being surrounded by "really talented" people in Music City.

The 38-year-old pop star hasn't released a record since 'No Shame' in 2018, but she's been slowly working away at building a collection.

Speaking on her 'Miss Me?' podcast with close friend Miquita Oliver, she spilled: “I’m in Nashville where everyone is really good. There’s so much legacy.

“I have to say it’s quite intimidating being here. People are really talented.

“I wrote a song yesterday which was quite good, I’m happy with it.”

Earlier this year, the 'Not Fair' singer revealed she had penned 50 songs for her new album.

When a fan reached out to her on X/Twitter to divulge that they couldn't stop thinking about how there were 40 unreleased tracks for her fifth album, she replied to let them know that there are now even more in the vaults.

She replied: "It's more like 50 now!"

One of those unreleased tracks is 'Party Line' - which Lily had first performed at the Way Out West Festival six years ago - and while a studio recording was due to make an appearance on her next album, she claimed when asked about the fate of the track that it could potentially be lost forever because it's stored in a cloud service to which she no longer has access to.


Lily - who achieved major success with early hits like ‘Smile’, 'LDN', 'The Fear' and '22' - first revealed that she had returned to the studio after performing her track 'F*** You' alongside American pop star Olivia Rodrigo in response to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the landmark Roe v Wade ruling, which left millions of women across the US without access to a legal or safe abortion.

Speaking on 'The Jonathan Ross Show', she said: "I was really nervous because I haven’t done it in a long time, I haven’t done it sober. I don’t really know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t like that. It was really, really amazing. People went absolutely ballistic. I was really overwhelmed. It sparked something in me."
