Adele has officially announced her new album ‘30’ stating it is her ride or die creation throughout the most turbulent period of the life.
‘30’ to be released on November 19, her fourth record is the highly anticipated follow-up to her 2015’s album ‘25’.
The 33-year-old singer who was divorced from her husband Simon Konecki in 2019, and lost her dad Mark Evans to cancer early this year, said the album shows her painstaking effort to rebuild her house, heart and friendships.
“When I was writing it, it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up. My wise friend who always gives the best advice. And then that friend who no matter what, checked in on me even though I’d stopped checking in with them because I’d become so consumed by my own grief. I have painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it,” she said.
Although admitting that she is nowhere near where she had hoped to be when she first started the album three years ago, she has willingly thrown herself “into a maze of absolute mess and inner tumoil”, “learnt a lot of blistering truths about herself along the way, as well as shed many layers but also wrapped herself in new ones”.
“(I) 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. And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out,” wrote the singer in a social media post.
