Singer Adele (33) announced this Wednesday afternoon on which day her long-awaited and brand new album ’30’ will be released. Make a note in your diary, the date is Friday 19 November.
“I learned a lot of things about myself during this process”
Adele also shared a personal story with the announcement. “I’m nowhere near where I hoped to be when I started this three years ago. The opposite even. I always fall back on routine to feel safe. I’ve always done that. And yet I went for it, even though it was a tangle of inner turmoil. I’ve learned a lot of things about myself during this process.’
She continues: ‘I gradually got along with it and I think I really found myself again. I would even dare to say that I have never had such a peaceful feeling in my life. That’s why I’m now ready to release my album.’
The singer says that she has had a lot of support from her best friend: ‘He was my best friend during this turbulent period in my life. When I wrote it, it was the friend who came over and cheered me up with a bottle of wine and a takeaway. The wise friend who gave the best advice. But also brought out the one who wanted it in me. The friend who stays up all night for you and holds your hand, while you cry incessantly. (….) But above all the friend who always came to check on me, even if I didn’t do that myself anymore, because I was so devoured by grief. I’ve repacked myself and rebuilt everything again and that’s what my album is about.’
Adele fans have already had to wait five years for new music from the singer. The new song ‘Easy On Me’ will be released on October 15th.
