British singer Lily Allen has blamed record label executives for choosing only radio-friendly pop songs from her upcoming album as singles after a fan complained about the new tracks on Twitter.com.
The devotee, named Reg Wilding, voiced his disappointment in a post on Monday (10Mar14) after hearing tunes like Our Time, Air Balloon and Hard Out Here on the airwaves.
He wrote, "@lilyallen's new music is actually docile pop rubbish. So disappointing. She properly just wrote some rubbish to cash some cheques (sic)."
The tweet caught the eye of the outspoken Smile hitmaker and she took the unexpected move of replying directly to Wilding, admitting she hasn't been happy with the single selection either.
However, Allen urged her fan not to give up hope, insisting the rest of her forthcoming third album, Sheezus, will impress.
She responded, "What you've heard so far yes. All I can do is do my best, the labels and the radio stations won't play the better stuff."
