"Sheesus" is Allen's third studio album and first since her retirement, following the release of 2009's "It's Not Me It's You," which also hit No. 1 in the U.K. The new release debuted last week and shot up to No. 1 on iTunes in the U.K. and five other countries.
Hard at work promoting the new album, the "Smile" hitmaker will be in the U.S. later this week for an exclusive sold-out show on May 15 at New York's Highline Ballroom. She’s also making a number of high profile TV appearances this week, which includes: “The Today Show” (May 14) “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” (May 15) and “Live with Kelly and Michael” (May 26).
