Lily Allen

Lily Allen has completed recording sessions for her second album.

The singer told Newsbeat she is yet to name the follow up to Alright Still but she is happy with the new record.

She told Newsbeat: "Iím pretty much sure itís finished and Iíve got a meeting on Tuesday with the label, Iím really happy."

The singer also admitted that despite the pressure to repeat the success of her debut, she is not worried about what her record company think of it.

She added: "As much as I love them theyíre just people who give you a loan. Iím not scared of my label."

Away from her recording sessions, Lily also said she has been working with Klaxons singer Jamie Reynolds on a new song.

The pair told Newsbeat they took time out to go into the studio together a couple of weeks ago.

Lily said: "We had our session and enlightened each other. We did a cover of Joe Jacksonís Steppin' Out.

Jamie added: "And that wonderful song that weíre yet to finish."

He went on: "It was just for a bit of enjoyment. I donít even know if itíll even exist yet. Itís a big work in progress."

Meanwhile, Klaxons are also working on their follow up to their Mercury prize winning debut Myths Of The Near Future.

Of the recording sessions Jamie said they had a hard first session.

"Weíve put a bit of work and weíre getting somewhere near a flow," he explained. "Itís going alright, we go in on Tuesday to do the second session on it. Weíve got another two weeks to hopefully come up with something."
