(Photo: Splash News Online) Lily Allen is set to release her new album It's Not Me, It's You on February 10.

That's almost 2 years since the release of her last album. Of course, that doesn't mean the 23 year-old British pop sensation has been out of the news. And, unlike many celebs, she says she kind of enjoys having her life an open book.

"What's surreal now is when it's not there," she tells Billboard Magazine about the constant press coverage. "To be honest, I start to slightly panic when people don't write about me for a couple of weeks."

Lily also says that, unlike poor Amy Winehouse who seems unable to clean up her act, she knows the drill.

"I know myself well enough. As soon as I feel remotely depressed I'm checked into a clinic and having intensive therapy. I've seen enough people fall apart to know that's not going to happen to me."

The first single from Lily's album, "The Fear," goes on-sale on January 26.
