Lily Allen Blames Record Company for Album Delay

Posted on

Anxious for the release of Lily Allen’s second album? Well, so is she!

The singer – whose first CD, Alright, Still, was released in 2006 and produced the breakout hit “Smile – took to her blog recently to vent about her record label, EMI.

“The album – it has been finished for a while now,” she wrote on her MySpace page. “I don’t really know what is going on with it. The record industry is a very political place at the moment.”

She says her sophomore album – tentatively titled Stuck on the Naughty Step – has been delayed thanks to a major staffing shakeup at the label, which has been purchased by a private equity firm.

“I’m sure everyone will find their feet soon enough,” she concludes optimistically.

A rep for EMI told the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph, “We are really excited by what we’ve heard [of the album] and we are all now discussing a release date.”
