Lily Allen keeps things low-key in a distressed T-shirt as she jumps into the arms of a friend in West Hollywood

She debuted her drastically shorter hairstyle in an Instagram video earlier this month.

And Lily Allen was still rocking her dark feather cut as she embraced a friend after dropping him off in West Hollywood, California on Tuesday.

The songstress, 34, cut a casual figure in a distressed white T-shirt and straight-cut blue jeans as she jumped into the arms of her cheerful pal.

The mother-of-two, who divorced painter Sam Cooper last year, completed her look with a classic beige trench coat and a pair of chequered slip-on Vans.

Lily wore a Tartan-style cross body bag and donned a pair of cat-eye sunglasses as she exited her car for the heartfelt hug.

The musician, who wrote her 2006 hit Alfie about her Game of Thrones star brother, completed her look with a series of silver pendant necklaces.

Her latest outing comes after Lily revealed a boyish, fringed and notably shorter new hair cut in a series of videos shared to Instagram earlier this month.

Sitting high on her forehead, Lily’s new hairstyle appeared to be dominated by unevenly cut bangs, while its usually longer sides fell just above her ears.

The singer debuted her considerably different appearance in four short videos, filmed as she mimed the lyrics to a song not featured on her previous four albums, including latest release No Shame.

But while many fans offered enthusiastic praise for the new look, some drew an unfortunate comparison with fictional Theon Greyjoy – the doomed character played by her younger brother, actor Alfie Allen, in Game Of Thrones.

‘Theon!’ commented one after seeing Lily’s hair, prompting another to add: ‘I thought the same thing. So alike here!’

Evidently in agreement, a third wrote: ‘I was thinking the same thang.’

However others shared their excitement about the possibility of new music from the star following her apparent tease.

Referencing the previously unheard track playing throughout Lily’s videos, one wrote: ‘I haven’t heard this song, can’t wait for party line to drop.’

Another wrote: ‘This new album is gonna be amazing’, while a third raved: ‘Omg this is so good, so proud of ya.’

‘Omg love the tune. Love the hair LOVVVVEE,’ praised a fourth fan after watching the videos.

The singer enjoyed a successful return to music with her fourth album in 2018, four years after releasing the underwhelming comeback album Sheezus.

Lily previously told Vulture that she blames some of her lost self-esteem and personal troubles on her comeback to music.

She said: ‘I lost my sense of self. I lost my identity. I was being a bad mum. I was being bad at my job. I’d wake up on a tour bus in the middle of Wisconsin and be so hung-over.

‘I cheated on my husband. All I wanted to do was be with my kids. I wasn’t even making any money.’
