The promotion for collective audience favorite Adele’s ‘30’ is currently going on as just a few hours remain before the official album release, on November 19. The most recent Adele interview, after the sizzling performance at ‘Adele One Night Only’ with Oprah, is for The Face Magazine.
“Talking to Adele is surprisingly easy. She’s very quick to join the page you’re on. There’s a grounding to her that puts you at ease, even though you’re very aware that you’re talking to one of the most famous women in the world. There’s an intelligence to her that surpasses her 33 years – and there’s a melancholy, too.” writes author Candice Carty-Williams about Adele, famous for the international bestseller, ‘Queenie’.
The author writes more about what interviewing a superstar such as Adele was like, but instead of the sweet and professional response all of us would expect, Williams mentions how Adele is more humble and intentionally looking to find common ground with people around her, such as the author in this case. “She wants to know about you as much as you want to know about her.” she writes.
Adele told Williams, she misses South London, where she used to live earlier. She talked more about her memories and everything leading up to the moment in her life currently than what is about to happen, which says more about the singer savoring the life she has lived, instead of worrying about what’s to come.
About her upcoming album, Adele answered, “I just wanted to acknowledge all of the many layers of myself, which I think is definitely something that comes with age. Obviously, after a really big life moment, like my divorce, it’s good to experiment a little bit more with sort of eclectic inspirations. I wanted to, more than anything, just comfort myself. It wasn’t really about what I wanted to say for people. It was more like: “What do I need to hear for myself, lyrically?””
Regarding the release of her upcoming work, the singer confirmed that she was overwhelmed because everything goes from “zero to 100” due to her not making music for a long time before she releases something fresh, but otherwise seems to be positive.
Adele has a reserved presence on social media, more so than before, when asked about what was the point where she decided to step back, she said, “I just would find myself not getting my errands done for the day. It’s made to be addictive…I need a human touch. I don’t wanna be sitting in a room on my phone and talking more to people that I don’t fucking know than I do know.”
