Lily Allen discloses her track for the FIFA World Cup

MUMBAI: British singer/songwriter, Lily Allen has declared her unofficial World Cup song to be 'Bass Like Home'.

She uploaded her new track on SoundCloud and named it to be an ode to the Brazil World Cup tournament of 2014. Along with the link to her song, she tweeted, "My unofficial World Cup song Bass Like Home.."

The pop star follows in the footsteps of her father, Keith Allen, who along with his band had also released an unofficial tune 'Vindaloo' for the 1998 World Cup. In addition, artistes like Pitbull and Shakira have as well created their own versions of anthems inspired by the global football tournament.

The track, 'Bass Like Home', does not talk about the World Cup but there are clear references to the artiste's mother nation, Great Britain. The song goes – "Who gave you Shakespeare? Who gave you melons? We gave you Gazza (the English footballer), we twisted your melons…" and further, "God Save The Queen with a pint of lager. I've been around, there's no where I'd rather be."

The song, although catchy, is more an ode to England than to the World Cup. It sounds like she is championing the England football team that plays against Italy on the 14th of June.

The song has received positive responses from the audience and garnered numerous hits on social media in a few hours. Whereas, the official World Cup anthem 'We Are One (Ole Ola)' by Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Lette has been criticised by many who believe the previous anthem, 'Waka Waka' is far superior.
