In public, at least, Adele has had little to say — and nothing to sing — for the past couple of years, not since she and collaborator Paul Epworth won an Oscar for “Skyfall,” the first decent James Bond theme song in forever. That level of attention is really frightening, especially if you don’t live around all that showbiz stuff.”. I didn’t understand, actually, what I had achieved and how far I had come. The funny thing is that Bruno was hitting those notes in the studio too.” (“She’s a superstar and sassy as fuck,” says Mars, who recalls a brief disagreement over one lyric. She dreads having more throat problems. “It’s one of those, like, ‘I’m fucking fine so fuck you’ songs,” she says. “‘Hello’ is as much about regrouping with myself, reconnecting with myself.” As for the line “hello from the other side”: “It sounds a bit morbid, like I’m dead,” she says. I love her.”. (He is, for the record, quite cute. © Copyright 2020 Rolling Stone, LLC, a subsidiary of Penske Business Media, LLC. “He’s so supportive,” she says. She told me she hopes I’m in the audience when she sings that line live so she can flick me off.”), In only one case did a collaboration go wildly wrong. “There’s a lot of things I don’t think I’ll ever get ’round to doing,” she says. ), For a while, she was trying to keep even his name secret, but it’s tattooed on one of her hands — the same spot on the other hand says PARADISE. “It was like, ‘For good measure, let’s see if I can cope with all of this and then having a baby.’ But I think actually the pregnancy was perfect timing in the end. If we hadn’t looked, then they’d have stopped taking her picture. "But as she got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they just grew apart. “It made me desperate, actually, to come back.” She had read that Bush’s teenage son had encouraged her to return to performing, and she “sort of curated this show around her kid. She’s driving under a sky that is gray and dismal even by the standards of early October London afternoons. I feel like that’s a big enough commitment.”, One new track, “Water Under the Bridge,” is about him. “All the things I really like about myself, he brings out in me, and he’s the only person that tells me no. The question of a tour looms large in Adele’s mind, and she’s giving herself until Christmas to decide. “When I’ve sat down and thought, ‘What can I do to bring something new to the table?’ It was just like, ‘Tour.’ Because I haven’t done it properly.” As she sees it, this album might be her last chance for many years to hit the road — once Angelo is in school, she doesn’t want to take him out. “I stressed the most important thing was to be true to her voice, even if that took longer and was more work… In the new material I heard, it was clear she wasn’t the primary writer — many of the songs sounded like they might be on a different pop artist’s album. All rights reserved. I left, and I was like, ‘I don’t want to wait until my kid is 16 to show him who I am.’ Because I’m very proud of what I achieved. It doesn’t take over my life, but I have a yearning for myself from, like, 10 years ago when my only responsibility was writing songs for myself before anyone cared, and getting to school on time. “I’m a feminist,” she says, sipping wine. We haven’t broken up. I don’t like looking in the mirror. “But it’s actually just from the other side of becoming an adult, making it out alive from your late teens, early twenties.”. Adele gazes up at her old apartment, her expression hard to read for once. She was particularly alarmed at 21‘s insistence on selling and selling at an alarming rate while she was laid up with a damaged voice and doing nothing to promote it. I’m not brave enough to do it.” Instead, she’s dressed like a grad student who barely got up in time for class, in a drapey blue-black sweater made of some hemplike fabric — it could almost be from Kanye’s dystopian fashion collection — over black leggings and white low-top Converse. None of it was right. He looked at Adele and told her, “I don’t believe you.” The original group of songs was lighter in tone than anything she’s done. Not, like, all music” — she’s a fan of FKA Twigs, loves Alabama Shakes, snuck into the crowd at Glastonbury to see Kanye — “but I feel like I don’t know what’s going on in the charts and in popular culture.” She laughs again. Her yearning for her old self, her nostalgia, pervades multiple songs on her new album. Facebook. Single Interviews; Interview: Adele Discusses New Album and Dramatic Weight Loss. “I have said a million times I’m not married and everyone still says we are,” she says. In short, then, no fun at all? Adele is trying to pull off a similar trick with her career itself. “When the pain cuts too deep and the night keeps you from sleep,” she sings, with exquisite tenderness, “I will be your remedy.” It made her tear up as she wrote it, and it has a similar effect on listeners. “I’ve heard about a squad,” she says with an amused snort. Which is peculiar, because she’s already lost her voice and regained it. Since Angelo’s arrival, Adele’s life has been thoroughly domestic — though not, she emphasizes, reclusive: “I’ve been to every fucking park, every shop, every supermarket you could ever imagine.” She’s in a “very serious” relationship with Angelo’s father, Simon Konecki, a bearish 41-year-old investment-banker-turned-philanthropist with a warm smile. They pick up on it and just go for you.”, She is assiduous in a warm-up routine to protect her throat, which was threatened by a 2011 vocal hemorrhage that led to canceled tour dates and throat surgery, followed by that dramatic return to the stage at the 2012 Grammys. Adele, Brian Hiatt, long reads. With the throwback classicism of its songwriting and its almost militantly organic arrangements, 21 stood to the side of the pop mainstream, even as it somehow outsold everything. But the idea of having to give up that little space, it really frightened me.”, She had just gotten over her vocal troubles, had won all her Grammys and was contemplating a move to New York when she learned of her pregnancy. She and Bruno Mars made an attempt at an uptempo song but instead created the unapologetically dramatic ballad “All I Ask,” complete with a climactic key change and Adele engaging in what she calls some of her most “showoff-y” vocals. “That’s, like, the biggest thing ever.” She smiles, eyes alight with all the music left to be made. “You know the pop songs that are fantastic, but they don’t have much depth?” says Adele. After posting the snapshot, Skepta left a cryptic comment for the Grammy winner. It’s a notably clear-eyed love song, with a feel vaguely reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature”: “If I’m not the one for you,” she sings, “why have we been through what we have been through?” — and the chorus pleads, “If you’re gonna let me down/Let me down gently.” “It was sort of about a relationship suddenly getting really, really serious,” she says, “and then getting a bit frightened by it, and then realizing that ‘I think this must be right. I’m really frightened of it. She got a deal with the powerful indie label XL straight out of her Fame-style performing-arts high school, mostly on the strength of a few MySpace demos. I guess I have my own squad.” She pronounces the word in a comical American accent. Earlier this year, she spent two months in Los Angeles, determined to move forward on her album for real. And there was something so amazing in that. “A cliché, not even tragic! "Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check," he shared.

He said I was insecure, when I’m the least-insecure person I know. “It’s taking so fucking long.” She blinks, pauses, laughs again. “Not because I’m famous, but just because I just don’t think I’ll ever have the time. Please! “They were all a bit like that.”, “Adele was anxious to be finished with the new album and move forward with life,” says Rubin.
