Lily Allen confirms work on new album

The 'Smile' star will officially go by her married name Lily Rose Cooper on new record

Lily Allen has revealed that she will be professionally known by her married surname from now on.

The 'Shame For You' singer wed Sam Cooper last June and the couple welcomed their first child in November 2011.

In a statement released by the singer, she confirmed the change of her name and admitted she was "excited" to be heading back in the studio to work on her new album.

"It's great to work at my own pace, with no commitments other than to make music," she revealed. "I'm excited to be heading back into the studio."

In June, she confessed that she was working on new material again via a post on her Twitter account and is also expecting her second child.

The news was confirmed by her father Keith during an appearance on the ITV show This Morning.
