The 'Smile' singer says she is in no rush to complete work on her next record and wants to make it "amazing".

Lily Allen has updated fans on the progress of her new album, and says she has been "tinkering away" in the record studio recently.

The 'Not Fair' singer has confirmed she is working hard on new music but claims fans shouldn't expect to hear any of her latest material until next year.

"I'm not going to put anything out until I've got an end product which I think's amazing - or, you know, good," Lily revealed in this week's issue of NME.  

The 'Smile' singer went on to suggest that new music in the near future is unlikely  and predicted sometime in 2013 as a more likely time for her musical return.

"I don't think there's going to be anything out in the next few months, but hopefully in the next year," she explained.

As well as updating fans on the album progress Lily also confirmed her new record will "definitely" deal with the experiences she has had as a mother since welcoming her first child in 2011.

Lily is also currently expecting her second child with husband Sam Cooper, and most recently joined Pink on stage in Los Angeles to perform their collaboration 'True Love'. 

The singer's new album will be her first release since 2009's 'It's Not Me, It's You'.
