" While Allen is happy in her life away from the music industry, she concedes that spending extended periods of time away from her young family during tours inspires her to write new material."
Los Angeles, Aug 31 - Singer Lily Allen believes she writes her songs well when she is not in the best of her moods.

The 29-year-old took a break from the industry in 2009, when she married painter and decorator Sam Cooper. She now has two children, Ethel, two, and 19-month-old Marnie.

She says having a settled family life is not conducive to making her best music, reports contactmusic.com.

While Allen is happy in her life away from the music industry, she concedes that spending extended periods of time away from her young family during tours inspires her to write new material.
