Lily Allen says her lyrical inspiration has changed now she is a wife and mother and joked her new album will be about "nappies"

Lily Allen has joked her new album will be about "nappies".

The 'Fear' hitmaker has been on hiatus from the pop world since 2009 but recently returned to the recording studio and claims her lyrics draw on her new life as a wife to Sam Cooper and mother to daughters Ethel, 18 months, and Marnie, four months.

She said: "I wouldn't say it has been easy [writing songs again] but it hasn't been hard. It has just been different because my pool of inspiration is just so different to what it was eight, nine, 10 years ago... It's all about nappies, you're going to love it."

Lily hopes fans will enjoy her new material, which she says is very "catchy".

Asked what fans can expect by British station Absolute Radio at the Ivor Novello awards in London yesterday (16.05.13), she said: "Just some good songs with catchy choruses and key changes here and there."

While the 'Smile' star loves being at home with her daughters, she knows she wouldn't feel fulfilled if she gave up her career for good.

She added: "I think five years ago what I really wanted to do was have kids and I have had two kids now and as much as I love that I'm never going to be the type of person that sits at home all day playing with plastic toys and watching Peppa Pig."

Chart-topping sunny pop, often with a melancholy lyrical undertone or some caustic social comment, from one of the UK's most idiosyncratic stars.
