Doubly good news forLily Allenfans today as the singer revealed she's joined personalised messaging service Cameo... and wants to release new music.

The singer shared her Cameo videoto Instagram Stories, urging fans to 'ask me to do some dumb shit' to finance her first record without a major label.

Lily's always been at the forefront of tech and new ways of releasing music since her MySpace days, so it's no surprise to see her leading the way again.

In the video, Lily - who married Stranger Things star David Harbourearlier this month - says: 'It’s getting close to the time I want to release music again and it’s the first time I’m going to be putting an album out not on a major label, so I’ll be using these funds to finance my musical output.

'So, ask me to do some dumb shit. Your wish is my command! And hopefully we’ll get some new music!’

Lily is charging £83 per message at the moment - pretty reasonable compared to some celebrities. Caitlin Jenner charges more than £2,000.

Lily was with record label Warner from 2013.

Last year, speaking on a podcast, The Next Episode, Lily said her record label had not taken any action after she told them she was sexually assaulted by an industry figure in 2016.

At the time, a label spokesperson told the BBC: 'We take accusations of sexual misconduct extremely seriously and investigate claims that are raised with us.'

Lily said she spoke to the label in 2018, to protect others in the industry.

She said: 'I would feel awful if I found out that somebody much younger and more vulnerable had had a similar experience that could have been prevented.'

Warner Music told the BBC it found Allen's allegations from 2016 'appalling' and added: 'We're very focused on enforcing our Code of Conduct and providing a safe and professional environment at all times.'
