Lily Allen Launches Her Own Record Label So She Can Release ‘Good Music’
The Smile singer, below, announced she has teamed up with Theo Motive to create Bank Holiday Records so they can “put out good music”.
She wrote on Twitter: ‘Warner asked me to set up my own record label and I asked my bro @TheoMotive to run it.
‘Putting out good music and having a laugh while doing so is the plan!’
Motive added on his Instagram account: ‘@bankholidayrecords is the label, happy birthday @lilyallen & love for having me run things fam. much goodness on the way. Big up @jimmmicrayon on the logo. Release announcements soon come.’
Allen, 31, will be hoping her new venture goes better than the last after her previous label – In the Name Of, a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment – folded in 2014 after just three years with just Tom Odell, below, and the band Cults on their books.
Her spokesman said at the time: “Lily will shortly be announcing a new signing/consulting role for another label… in the meantime she is very happy that Tom Odell’s records will be released on Columbia, who were the distributors for ITNO.”
