Recently, Lily Allen exclusively premiered her new album, It’s Not Me, It’s You, on MySpace Music to fans worldwide who were able to fully stream the entire album a full week before it hit stores. It’s Not Me, It’s You is both a continuation of the preoccupations of Alright, Still, Lily’s critically acclaimed debut and a stiletto-heeled leap forward. Lily created her MySpace Music page in November 2005, where she used the site to post demos and self-produced mixtapes to attract thousands of listeners from around the world. As she started gaining tens of thousands of MySpace friends, the media took notice of her growing popularity on the site and in March 2006 received her first major mainstream media coverage. Lily Allen has more than 449,000 friends on MySpace Music.
