The British musician is set to thrill fans again after six years of absence.
English singer and songwriter Adele has revealed that her next album will be released on November 19. The project titled “30’’ is Adele’s first album in six years with an initial single, “Easy on Me’’ expected to drop on Friday, October 15.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Adele who was divorced in 2019 noted that she feels better after “throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil.” The singer added: “I’m ready to finally put this album out.’’ Adele’s last two albums which featured hits like “Rolling in the Deep’’ and “Hello’’ ranks among the 50 best selling music projects in history.
Released in 2011, the disc “21’’ (Adele names her works for her age while writing most of the songs) has so far sold an estimated 31 million copies around the globe. Her album “25’’ which was released in 2015 has sold 22 million copies.
However, Adele might not meet those sales figures again owing to the emergence of streaming services like Spotify, but she maintains a level of popularity that only artists like Taylor Swift can rival when it is about the business of music. Her absence for six years might also affect her numbers.
Speaking in a recent interview with Vogue, the British singer said “there isn’t a bombastic ‘Hello.’ But I don’t want another song like that. That song catapulted me in fame to another level that I don’t want to happen again.” The Grammy winning singer and her ex-husband Simon Konecki have a 9-year-old son, and she admits to have “learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way.’’
In her Instagram post, the 33-year-old singer said: “I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go so far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.”
The initial single of Adele’s new album “Easy on Me’’ has been described as a “gut-wrenching plea of a piano ballad” by Vogue. The singer has emphasized on her love for her new project and told Vogue: “It’s sensitive for me, this record, just in how much I love it. I always say that ‘21’ doesn’t belong to me anymore. Everyone else took it in their hearts so much. I’m not letting go of this one. This is my album. I want to share myself with everyone, but I don’t think I’ll ever let this one go.”
