Lily Allen – Straight to Hell (The Clash Cover)

blame it on Illy January 21, 2009


The last time I posted up a Lily Allen joint, it was received a lot better than I expected. So let’s continue…
Where her cover of Britney Spears’ single got her a slap on the hand ass from her record label; Lily had full permission to rework The Clash’s third single from their 1982 release, Combat Rock. In fact… the cover will be included in the upcoming War Child: Heroes. A compilation which features the likes of Beck, Duffy, TV On the Radio, Franz Ferdinand, etc covering the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, The Ramones and more. I included the tracklist after the jump if you’re interested. Look for that to drop February 16th and Lily Allen’s upcoming album, It’s Not Me, It’s You, on February 10th. Shouts to YK for the reminder.
