  • Lily Allen spills the details on her exciting collaboration with Lena Dunham's Girls, after bagging a spot on season 3.

    Lily Allen has teamed up with Lena Dunham’s Girls, for what she’s dubbing a ‘no brainer’ collaboration.

    The Brit songstress, who made her comeback with Hard Out Here (complete with a parody of Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video), couldn’t be happier about bagging a track on the HBO show’s third season soundtrack.

    ‘I think the show is brilliant, so it was more or less a no brainer for me,’ Lily told Rolling Stone. ‘Greg Kurstin, who produces and co-wrote this track with me, played a few of the new tracks for a friend of his who works on the show.

    ‘Apparently [music supervisor Manish Raval] loved the songs, and later came back to Greg asking if he could include one of the tracks in an episode.’

    The unreleased song, L8 CMMR, appears on Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do, alongside other tracks by Beck, Miguel and Jenny Lewis. 

    ‘Don’t know why I love him so much,’ Lily sings in the three-and-a-half-minute track, which follows similar themes of love and lust to the Girls series.

    Lily Allen is currently working on her untitled, third album, having just previewed a second single, Air Balloon.

    Now, how about a Girls cameo for lovely Lily?
