The new single “Easy on me” should herald “Adele’s Autumn.”
If this morning you were startled by the sound of a siren, your alarm or smartphone probably came with Adele’s new song. ‘Easy on me’ is the 33-year-old British singer’s debut achievement in six years. The piano song, which Adele shared for 15 seconds on Instagram Live a few days ago, is a harbinger of her new album ’30’, which will be released on November 19.
Judging by the success of her previous three albums, it looks like the Spurs Queen of Soul will dominate the musical fall. Her previous album ’25’, which featured the song ‘Hello’, sold 300,000 copies in the UK alone in the first 24 hours. In the United States, it sold more than 7 million records in a month and a half. Worldwide, this album sold over 17 million copies in 2015 alone. The album before it, “21,” sold 30 million copies. Adele is by far the 21 best-selling artist on album levelyou all century.
Adele has been singing about her divorce on her new single and album. From 2011 to 2019, she was in a relationship with American businessman Simon Konecki. I left, she told British edition of Vogue this week, “I didn’t want to end up like so many other people I know. I haven’t felt completely miserable yet, but I would have been if I hadn’t put myself first.”
The fashion and lifestyle magazine also talks about the fear the divorce has caused in their nine-year-old son. “30” was written in part to help the boy understand his parents’ situation.
Adele is the best-selling artist of the 21st century on album level.
The international star is also returning to the controversy over her weight loss in Vogue magazine. At the end of 2019, Adele made headlines with her huge transformation: she lost 45 kilograms in two years. As a result of intense exercise to address her divorce. Many fans did not appreciate the surprising waist of their heroine. Her plus size made the Brits more authentic than other perfectly sized pop stars. She defended it, saying, “Visually, I represent a lot of women, but I’m still the same person I’ve always been.”
That originality, combined with her deep, soprano and soul poppy vocals, is her great strength. The British lack the singer’s behavior for stars like Madonna or Beyoncé. She behaves as she is: a Spurs girl who was raised by a single mother who was not well off. The singer did not hide her weakness, neither in her songs, nor in real life. In her interviews she showed disarming every day. During her concerts, the audience is regularly fascinated by her jokes about self-relativity.
So Adele and her soulful songs are back. Now let’s just hope we never hear about the same music again. Unfortunately, this chance is high. The Nightingale of London does not like to push the musical boundaries.
