The 29-year-old 'Smile' star said her label went wrong with the timing of the songs' release, which confused the listeners, reported The Daily Mirror.
"Maybe the songs arent good enough this time, who knows I just know I cant wait to get back into the studio," Allen said, when asked why the album did not work.
"The first thing I came back with was 'Hard Out Here' and that was important to me, a real statement of intent, even though you couldnt put it on the radio over here because it had too much swearing.
"I thought it did really well and then management and the label chose to go with 'Air Balloon' and I just think starting with something really aggressive and in your face and then going in a different direction. People need to know what they are getting," she added.
