A music video in the accompaniment of Lily Allen's brand new song "The Fear" has made its way out. Shot in Bedfordshire, it presents the British singer singing the song surrounded by hunks dancing around her. Near the end, it shows her walking out of her balloons-decorated house, away from the crowd.
"The Fear" is a mid-tempo jam coming off Lily's sophomore major studio effort "It's Not Me, It's You". Starting with a melodic guitar sounds, the song mainly talks about the superficiality in the entertainment industry. "I wanna be rich and I want lots of money/I don't care about clever..." she sings before blasting off the celebrities who think taking their clothes off will make them more famous. "It will be shameless/Cuz everyone knows this is how you get famous."
On "It's Not Me, It's You" itself, Lily said, "We decided to try and make bigger-sounding, more ethereal songs, real songs." Noting that the album, due for U.K. release on February 9, 2009, will have jazz, country, and dance music sounds, she added, "I wanted to work with one person from start to finish to make it one body of work. I wanted it to feel like it had some sort of integrity. I think I've grown up a bit as a person, and I hope it reflects that."
