British pop star Lily Allen and Australian singer Sam Sparro plan to hit the studio together next month.

The singer has been working on new material for the first time since announcing her retirement from performing in 2009 to focus on motherhood, and she has been spending time in Los Angeles recently with producer Greg Kurstin.

Allen is now hoping to team up with Sparro to create some music magic.

The friends exchanged messages via Twitter on Monday to arrange a catch-up session in Los Angles, and Sparro took it upon himself to suggest writing songs together, too.

He tweeted: "I should be there (in) sept. would be good to have a laugh (if) u (sic) have time... if u have time to write that would be fun too", to which Allen replied, "alwayz (sic)".

Allen has yet to announce plans for a new album. Her last release, It's Not Me, It's You, hit retailers in early 2009.

Recently her father Keith confirmed Allen is pregnant with her second child.
