    Lily Allen is just weeks away from embarking on her first North American headlining tour in four years. In anticipation, the UK singer-songwriter filmed a session for triple j’s Like A Version cover series.

    Allen’s performance was highlighted by a cover of the Lykke Li original “deep end”. Li’s version, off this year’s excellent so sad so sexy, lived on throbbing and trap-like beats. Allen’s, however, is more of the moody piano ballad variety, aptly shot in a dimly lit studio setting.
