27 February 2013, 12:08

The 'Smile' singer is preparing to announce her first album in over three years in the coming months.

Lily Allen made her live musical return last night (26th February) with a show in Paris, as one of her first solo public shows in years.

The 'Fear' singer, who famously announced her retirement from music in 2009, confirmed last year that she was back in the recording studio "tinkering away" on a new album.

Lily performed her debut single 'Smile' live at the ETAM Fall-Winter 2013-2013 collection show at the Bourse Du Commerce in the French capital, and revealed she had been practicing with regular collaborator Mark Ronson ahead of the show.

"Just did rehearsal for tomorrow's ETAM show with @iamMarkRonson, still know the words to Smile, which is good. #mumback," Lily tweeted out to her fans on Monday.

The 'Not Fair' singer gave birth to her second child at the start of 2013, a daughter called Marnie, who was believed to be in the audience at her concert.

In 2012 Lily confirmed she was once again working with Greg Kurstin, who worked on her first two albums, and told fans to expect a new album sometime in 2013.

Lily Allen's third studio album will be her first since 2009' 'It's Not Me, It's You'.
