Lily Allen is following in her actor father's footsteps by releasing an unofficial World Cup tune.

The Smile singer's new tune Bass Like Home is an ode to all the things she loves about her native England, including William Shakespeare, John Lennon, the Queen, lager and soccer star Paul Gascoigne.

Her father Keith Allen and his band of comics, Fat Les, enjoyed chart success with unofficial England World Cup tune Vindaloo in 1998. That track was co-written by Blur star Alex James.
