Lily Allen‘s “L8 CMMR” is the most recent track to premiere from Volume 2 of the Girls soundtrack, following Miguel‘s “Simplethings” and Beck‘s “Blue Moon.” The song (“latecomer” if you couldn’t figure it out) was produced and co-written by Greg Kurstin, and while it wasn’t initially written for the HBO show, its smitten tale is a perfect match, as Allen sings about her man both as a way to compliment him and to mark her territory.
Like “Hard Out Here,” the track is slathered in glossy pop production — there’s Auto-Tune, Major Lazer-esque percussion, ascending synths — but things never get bombastic, resulting in a breezy swoon of a chorus more in line with her effervescent “Air Balloon.”
