Lily Allen To Set Up Record Company

Singer not leaving music behind

Foul mouthed pop pixie Lily Allen could be set to enter the upper echelons of the music industry by launching a new label.

Lily Allen recently waged war on illegal downloading. In a blog posting the singer attacked the Featured Artists Coalition on the issue, claiming that the millionaire rock stars who run the group won’t be affected by file sharing.

Instead, she claimed that the problem is harming up and coming acts. It is those with lower profiles, Lily Allen suggested, who are being harmed.

Sparking an enormous debate, the singer was praised by Patrick Wolf and Muse singer Matt Bellamy amongst others. However she was earned the wrath of the online community, with many openly criticising her views.

Now it seems as though Lily Allen is set to put theory into practice by launching a new record label. Speaking to BBC 6Music the singer confirmed that she is “in talks” about setting up her own imprint.

“I’m not retiring from music,” she claimed. “I might retire from singing for a bit. I feel like maybe having a bit of a break from doing that and do something else for a while.”

She added: “I love working in music. I like to help other bands so I’m thinking about – well, we’re in talks about – setting up my own label and dedicating the next couple of years to that.”

Lily Allen also confirmed that she was in talks to appears in a West End show.

However all this will have to occur once she completes her tour schedule. Lily Allen recently confirmed that she was set to head out on the road with Dizzee Rascal on a lengthy UK tour.
