Lily AllenLily Allen's new album, It's Not Me, It's You, is in stores today - and she celebrated the occasion with a performance on NBC's "Today" show this morning and will perform at a MySpace Secret Show at New York City's Bowery Ballroom tonight. With free Secret Shows also scheduled in Tokyo and London, the concerts mark the first time a single artist will take part in multiple MySpace Secret Shows on a global level.

Allen will perform on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on February 16th and on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on February 18th. She'll return home thereafter for a series of U.K. dates, but kick off a North American headlining tour on April 1st in San Diego, CA.

Lead single "The Fear," which debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart, recently topped Rolling Stone's "Hot List." "The singer packs another lyrical punch as she touches upon the charade of fame, delusions of consumerism and media obsession with her celebrity," said Billboard in a review of the track. The accompanying video, which was directed by Nez (The Streets, Kano) and generated 500,000 clicks in five days when it premiered on MySpace, has been added at MTV, MTV Hits, mtvU, The N, Music Choice and LOGO.

Lily is the currently the subject of a cover feature in Spin, excerpted here.

She's also recently appeared on the cover of Billboard, Nylon and Paper and snagged the lede review/feature in Rolling Stone, US Weekly, People, Entertainment Weekly and Maxim. "This provocateur with a heart of gold has returned with a wicked sophomore record," said Nylon while Rolling Stone noted: "Allen has gotten more musically eclectic, jettisoning the thumping rock-steady of Alright, Still without sacrificing catchiness or dance-floor bounce." Blender described the album, which was produced by Greg Kurstin (the bird and the bee), as "part God, part country and all middle finger," and People said: "Allen's bite is softened - and in some cases, sharpened - by her sweet-as-pie delivery. It serves her well whether she's riffing on prescription drugs, (the highlight, 'Everyone's At It') or fame (first single, 'The Fear')." "In the end, it's a tale of two Lilys: the naughty postadolescent in the rearview mirror, and the fully realized female coming around the bend," observed Entertainment Weekly.

It's Not Me, It's You is the follow-up to Allen's 2007 debut, Alright, Still, which entered The Billboard 200 at No. 20 after her release week performance on "Saturday Night Live." On the strength of the album, which has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide, Lily was nominated for four Brit awards, a GRAMMY® award and an MTV Video Music award.
