If there is one thing that Lily Allen has proven she is good at, it is producing music that works with the hit tracks in the charts whilst still keeping her signature singing style and lyrical content. One line that stood out was “I don’t like dropping names but Kurt Cobain is all in my face, how the hell am I gonna tell him Elvis already took first base.” It’s light hearted, tongue-in-cheek, quirky, and the music video is not what you would expect! The video was shot on location in Cape Town and there are some moments that make you think “What was all that about?”, there is also not a hot air balloon in sight – just so you know.
‘Air Balloon‘ follows Allen’s No. 1 hit cover ‘Somewhere Only We Know‘ in December 2013 and the single is to be released on 2nd March 2014. The track was written by Lily with Shellback, who also produced the song. Lily is currently working on her third album, which is due for release later on this year.
