We love a comeback. Case in point Justin Timberlake who has just released his third studio album The 20/20 Experience after a four year musical hiatus. Don’t worry, he was in films and got married and stuff so wasn’t slacking off. Likewise, The Big Reunion. Obsessed.
So we’re pretty excited about the return of one Mrs Lily Rose Cooper to the musical arena. After claiming retirement and absent from the stage for four years, she made a glorious return at Paris Fashion Week singing her hit single Smile at the ETAM show dubbing it her ‘#mumback’.
Lily is set to release her new album later this year having spent time in the studio with the producer of her first two albums, Greg Kurstin. Known for being somewhat outspoken in the past, since her last album in 2009 she’s become a wife and mother to two girls, Ethel and Marnie. This has surely given Lily a new perspective on which to draw on but will she be able to juggle her musical comeback with motherhood?
We caught up with her father Keith Allen earlier this week at the premiere of his new film Vinyl. 'Oh easy,’ he told us. ‘In fact the kids will be in the band. Playing triangle or something.' Well, if Jay-Z can manage it within days of the birth of Blue Ivy then its not beyond the realms of possibility!
It seems like Keith is pretty smitten with the two new additions to his family. When asked about whether he’s on hand to babysit, he smiled and said, ‘I've made it known that I'd do it of course. I really look forward to it.' Aww. Well, with Grandad on hand to tend her two girls, she’s got no excuse now.
