Lily Allen has been on a musical hiatus since 2010 but the sassy singer revealed back in August that she would be returning to the music scene, and it looks as though fans can expect new music before the year is out as Lily will reportedly be making her comeback by singing on the John Lewis Christmas advert, covering Keane.
It has been reported that the 28-year-old has recorded a cover of Keane’s hit 2004 song ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ for the renowned emotional advertisement, however other tracks are being considered.

Music Week were also told that Eurhythmics singer Annie Lennox was considered for lending her voice to the campaign and PJ Harvey was also approached by the advertising team before Lily.
In the past the Christmas advert has featured young British talent singing covering classic pop songs. In 2010 Ellie Goulding’s cover of Elton John's ‘Your Song’ saw her reach the number two spot in the UK top 40, while last year Gabrielle Alpin’s cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s track ‘The Power Of Love’ made it to number one in the charts.
Lily Allen is thought to be releasing her third studio album next year however she will be appearing on Robbie Williams forthcoming album ‘Swings Both Ways’ where she is performing a duet on a cover of the song ‘Dream A Little Dream.’
