English pop superstar Lily Allen is back on the music scene and the ‘Smile’ singer has revealed that her latest record ‘Sheezus’ is dedicated to Amy Winehouse. The late singer’s record-breaking album ‘Back To Black’ was released in 2006, the same year as Allen’s debut.
In a recent interview, the ‘Not Fair’ singer revealed that her upcoming record will be dedicated to the ‘Tears Dry On Their Own’ singer, who died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of 27. Allen said, “She was not in a great place when we knew each other, so I don’t feel I knew Amy: I knew a version of Amy. What she had to deal with was 10 times anything I had to deal with. She’d sold a hell of a lot more albums than me, and there was a lot more interest in her.”
The ‘Hard Out Here’ singer went on to say that there were people outside of Winehouse’s home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Allen explained that she knows what that was like on a much smaller level and the mom-of-two admits she felt trapped. Winehouse released just two albums during her lifetime and found massive success with her second record, ‘Back To Black’.
‘Sheezus’ – Allen’s third studio album – is scheduled to be released on May 5, 2014.
