Adele has confirmed the release date for her highly anticipated fourth album, assuring hopeful fans that, yes, “sad girl fallsWill come to fruition this year.
The singer-songwriter announced on social media Wednesday that “30” will arrive on November 19. She also posted a photo of what many believe to be the album cover image, showing a close-up of her face in profile.
In a note included in the article, Adele said she had “learned a lot of ghastly truths at home” about herself during the recording process of “30”, which like her previous albums refers to the age she was when she composed the songs. Incidentally, the new music will be unveiled just one day before the fifth anniversary of “25”, her third album.
“It was my turn or my death throughout the most eventful time of my life,” she wrote. “When I was writing it, it was my friend who came with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up. My wise friend who always gives the best advice.
“And then this friend who, no matter what, checked on me even if I had stopped checking with them because I had become so consumed with my own grief,” she continued. “Since then, I have painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart and this album tells it. Home is where the heart is.
By all accounts, “30” looks set to be one of the biggest musical releases of the year. His debut will be preceded by the first single, “Easy on Me”, which will be released on Friday. A Vogue cover story published last week described the track as “a heart-wrenching plea from a piano ballad.”
And according to Vulture, Adele is planning a special live concert on a television network or streaming platform scheduled for the album’s release, although no details have been finalized yet.
The singer’s reference to a “turbulent period” seemed to be intentionally vague. However, in the years since “25” released in 2015, she married – and divorced – entrepreneur Simon Konecki, with whom she shares a 9-year-old son, Angelo.
And in August last year, she faced widespread backlash after sharing a photo of herself attending the Notting Hill Carnival in London in a Jamaican flag bikini and her hair in Bantu knots, which sparked accusations of cultural appropriation.
Speaking to British Vogue, Adele revealed that she wrote much of “30” for Angelo, who she said had “really good questions, really innocent questions, which I just don’t have. Answer”.
“I just had the impression that I wanted to explain to him, through this record, when he was 20 or 30 years old, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his whole life in search of my own happiness” , she explained last week. . “It made him really miserable sometimes. And it’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I will ever be able to heal.
