Lily Allen has said that she would like to give her album away for free.
The 'Our Time' singer admitted that the way the release of her upcoming third studio album Sheezus has been handled has made her want to go it alone.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Allen revealed that she began to get frustrated when her label insisted she release the new tracks under her maiden name.
"I wanted to come back as Lily Cooper, but the label just weren't having it," she explained. "They were like, 'No, you're Lily Allen'.
"They freaked me out and convinced me that it could be a massive contributing factor to my failure, so I was like, 'Okay'."
When asked about her future in music, the mother of two - who previously called her record label's single choices "rubbish" - confessed that she wishes she had "more control" over the release process.
"I just want to get [my next album] done as quickly as possible so I can get out of my deal," said Allen.

"Not because I want off my label. I just want to have more control. I want to put things out in the way that I want. I feel like I know my fanbase better than they know my fanbase. I communicate with them every day. I set it up on MySpace. I saw how it evolved and how it worked. I wish they would let me do it in my way."
"What I'd like to do is team up with a hedge funder," the 'Air Balloon' singer continued.
"They could help me pay to get the record done, and I could just give it away and then go on tour.
"People used to go to a Rolling Stones concert and if you were really f**king lucky, they'd play a song that no-one had heard before.
"You don't have that anymore. Everything is so meticulously thought-out and market-researched. It's why everything is so f**king boring."
Sheezus is released on May 5.
