Lily Allen's new music has been inspired by her relationship with her daughters

Lily Allen's new music is about motherhood.

The 31-year-old singer has written a new album about her relationship with her two daughters, Ethel, five and four-year-old Marnie.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: "These songs approach Lily's life as a mother from different angles and show she isn't afraid of tackling controversial issues about her personal life.

"In one track she sings heartbreaking lyrics that she imagines her daughter feels every time she has to go to work. It is a lovely, tender song.

"Another song parodies perceptions of her as this wild caner.

"It's not definite that the tracks will end up on the final album but they are ones she really likes.

"She has been teasing some of them on Snapchat and fans have liked how emotive and honest they are."

It was previously revealed Lily has teamed up with Mark Ronson - her long-time collaborator - for her upcoming record and the producer said she has channeled the heartbreak caused by her separation from her husband Sam Cooper into her lyrics.

Speaking last year, he said: "We've been writing together again on the new record. I feel like they are some of the best songs she's written. Her voice sounds incredible. The stuff I'm working on is some of her most honest and heartbreaking music ever. She writes so honestly you can feel it."

Lily hasn't released an album since 2014's 'Sheezus' and Mark believes the music world needs her to return.

He said: "She's like a needed performer. There's nobody really doing s**t like that, really honest."
