Adele has opened up about how she felt while recording her upcoming album 30, and explained that it helped her confront her emotions.
Talking to BBC Radio 2 presenter Zoe Ball on her Breakfast Show this morning, 15 October, the Set Fire To The Rain singer explained that she used the album as an “outlet” for her feelings, and said that music “took care of [her]”.
She told Zoe: “It was bloody hard work to make, just in terms of, you know, I would sing things that I didn’t even realise I was feeling or thinking, but I’m really, really proud of it.”
“I feel like I can’t unlock a door for my own mental health and take the key with me,” Adele continued. “I’ve got to leave it in the door for everyone else and I feel like I’m in a strong place now so I can put that vulnerability out.”
Adele added that she hopes the album will help other people who have been through similar situations to her.
The singer married Simon Konecki in 2018, but filed for divorce just a year later. The pair have a son, eight year old Angelo, together.
Adele also discussed how she wanted to release her music in an “old school rollout” sort of fashion.
She said: “I really wanted to go with a sort of old school rollout, which is hilarious because a lot of it has relied on social media which isn’t so old school, but the anticipation is really, really important and I feel like a lot of newer, younger artists are told and taught to undervalue their own art. It doesn’t sit right with me, so I’ve tried to sort of inspire them to not give it all away at once.”
Adele fans have gone wild in the wake of the release of Easy On Me today, with millions of people having already watched the video on YouTube.
Many people have addressed how emotional the single is , with a lot of fans saying the song made them cry.
One person tweeted: “the best masterpiece comes from pain, I cried a lot with this clip, it just shows that regardless of the situation and the suffering we go through, everything is overcome and a better version of ourselves is born #Adele #EasyOnMe.”
Another said: “I just knew we were getting a good album/song from Adele. It takes real heartbreak to sing about certain kinds of pain.”
