After five long years and an ever-growing list of controversies, Lily Allen‘s conversation-starting Sheezus LP is finally here, and streaming in full ahead of its May 6 release! The follow-up to It’s Not Me, It’s You finds the British diva in an even feistier mood than usual. She fires shots at the music industry (Idolator gets a mention on “URL Badman” — stoked!), combats sexism and generally speaks her mind.
Singles “Hard Out Here” and “Air Balloon” aren’t an accurate indication of what to expect. The 28-year-old dissed those songs on Twitter, urging fans to “keep the faith” about the quality of Sheezus. That loyalty is rewarded on cuts like the title track, which harks back to the acerbic and frankly hilarious Lily of old. Listen to the album in full after the jump and decide if you’re ready to become a disciple or not.
The LP is streaming over at iTunes Radio. Give us your verdict in the comments below.
