British singer Lily Allen wrote her new song in memory of her stillborn son.

The Smile songwriter announced she was expecting her first child with then-boyfriend Sam Cooper in 2010, but she contracted a viral infection six months into the pregnancy and she subsequently lost the baby.

On Tuesday, the fifth anniversary of her hospitalisation, Allen revealed she wrote the song Something’s Not Right for the Pan movie soundtrack in his memory.

“5 years ago today I was admitted to hospital. 4 days later I delivered a beautiful baby boy, but sadly he didn’t make it… It’s unlike me to discuss this sort of thing so publicly but I wrote this song in his memory when writing something for @panmovie,” she wrote.

She shared a link to the song and asked her fans to donate to stillbirth and neonatal death charity Sands, adding, “Please listen and if you fancy it, you could donate in his memory… much love, Lil.”

Just days after the tragedy, Allen was hospitalised again with blood-poisoning condition septicaemia.

She later wed Cooper in 2011, and they became parents to two daughters Ethel, three, and Marnie, two.
