25 Going on 30!
After six years of waiting, Adele announced Wednesday on Instagram that her latest album, 30, will be released on Nov. 19. In fact, she revealed that fans are in for something new. The singer went on to post about the album and how this was a complicated process. However, this a turning point in where she has not felt more peaceful in her life.
“Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go as far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life,” she wrote.
“And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out.”
Adele acknowledges her friends that were by her side throughout the making of the album. Moreover, they became the people she could depend on during the “most turbulent period of her life.”
“My wise friend who always gives the best advice…The friend who’d stay up all night and just hold my hand while I’d sob relentlessly, not knowing why,” the singer wrote in her post.
“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.”
“Easy On Me,” The 30 Album’s First Single
With the release of her forthcoming album, 30, Adele gave fans what they wanted and announced Friday, Oct. 15, her album’s first single, “Easy On Me.”
“I was still a child, didn’t get the chance to feel the world around me, had no time to choose, what I chose to do, so go easy on me,” she sings.
With more to come next month, fans of the singer are in for an album that is full of growth, happiness, and the rebirth of Adele.
“I’ve painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it,” she explained.
Behind The Lyrics
The singer opens up on her latest single. Some consider it a reflection of her life, son, and separation from now ex-husband Simon Konecki. The divorce was finalized in 2019, and the song signifies a time of healing for the artist.
In the music video, Adele is last looking around an empty house that she last recorded, “Hello,” and now picking up her suitcase and leaving. The moment she realized it was time to move on.
“You can’t deny how hard I tried, I changed who I was to put you both first but now I give up,” she sings.
Adele had done so much for her partner’s happiness and not knowing how important it was to understand her true worth. Now, she has created a song and an album to resemble the change and strength to keep going. A reflection of not a mistake, but a start to a new chapter.
