Fans thrilled by Lily Allen’s comeback track Trigger Bang
Fans welcomed the singer’s latest track with rapper Giggs.
Singer Lily Allen’s frank words on drug addiction, life in the public eye and former lovers have proved a hit with fans in her latest track.
Marking a musical comeback for the Not Fair singer following her last and chart-topping record Sheezus in 2014 and her festive cover of Somewhere Only We Know in 2013, the single was released on Tuesday featuring a collaboration with rapper Giggs.
It includes the lyrics: “When I grew up, nothing changed much/Anything went, I was famous/I would wake up next to strangers/Everyone knows what cocaine does/Numbing the pain when the shame comes, hey.”
Delighted fans reached out to the London musician via Twitter to thank her for the tune, with some describing it as an early Christmas present.
One joked: “I can’t believe Christmas had been officially moved to the 12th of December.”
