Lily Allen has sparked rumours that she is planning to make a musical comeback after being spotted at a London recording studio.
The 'Alright Still' star officially retired from the music scene in 2010 to focus on her career in fashion as well as getting married and having her first child. Allen's only involvement in music since 2010 has been writing songs for the West End version of Bridget Jones' Diary.
However, she was spotted at North London sudios RAK recently and sources close to her have claimed that writing for the Bridget Jones musical has given her pause for thought regarding her hasty retirement.
"Lily has been in the studio trying different sounds and writing new tracks. She's not at a stage where she can start recording but the new album is definitely under way and there's a chance it could be released early next year," a source told the Daily Star.
Adding: "When Lily retired she honestly thought she'd never record again. But she started writing for the new Bridget Jones musical and that gave her the bug back. Her life has changed so much since her last album and she now has a different perspective. Lily wants a more mature sound."
Normally quick to dispute any rumours, Allen has remained quiet via Twitter.
