Adele Announces New Album “30”, Premieres New Song “Easy On Me” on BBC Radio 1
- British singer-songwriter Adele is back. She announced her upcoming fourth studio album “30” would be released on November 19, 2021.
The album is her first project in 6 years since the 2015 album “25” and comprises of 12-track.
She wrote the album over 2018 through 2021 and worked with Greg Kurstin, Max Martin, and Shellback.
From the album, she unveiled the lead single called “Easy On Me” along with a music video on October 15, 2021.
It was written by Greg Kurstin and Adele. The video was directed by Xavier Dolan, who also directed the video for her 2015 single “Hello,” reunited with Adele for the visual.
“It was the first song that I wrote for the album, so going back beginning of 2019. And I was quite shocked that I got it out straight away like I've been back in the studio for like four or five years before that,” Adele told Radio 1's Greg James about the song. “I was making decisions in my life which have been documented over the last a few years. It was sort of that thing of like initiating a discussion or whatever or even not in the case of my son's dad and some of that before a massive bloody fight which I definitely started some fights post my relationship with my dad with other people. But it was just like you can initiate something and be like hang on a minute no go easy on me, it was just like be like bear with me find my feet in a situation.”
She continued, “There's something like this really like hopeful about it, as well as sad, but I mean obviously it brought my eyes out when I was writing it and when I was singing it for the recording and stuff like that, bu just there's an element of hope in it which in turn gave me hope, because I was at my wit's ends in the beginning of 2019.”
Adele shared on social media about the album, “I was certainly nowhere near where I'd hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly - willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!
I've learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I've shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. 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.
And so, I'm ready to finally put this album out.
It was my ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life. 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. Not to forget the one who's wild and says, 'It's your Saturn return babes fuck it, you only live once.' The friend who'd stay up all night and just hold my hand while I'd sob relentlessly not knowing why. The get up and go friend who would pick me up and take me somewhere I said I didn't want to go but just wanted to get me out the house for some vitamin D. That friend who snuck in and left a magazine with a face mask and some bath salts to make me feel loved while inadvertently reminding me not only what month it actually was but that I should probably exercise some self-care!
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've painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it.
Home is where the heart is x.”
