If you are a fan of British music sensation, Adele, then we have some great news for you!
After releasing her 1st and 2nd albums – ‘19‘ and ‘21‘, the star took a long break and left fans holding their breath for her 3rd studio album.
Today, she not only confirmed that her new album would be titled ‘25‘, but also gave us some details on her upcoming album, and why it took so long in a lengthy Facebook message to all her adoring fans.
“When I was 7, I wanted to be 8. When I was 8, I wanted to be 12. When I turned 12 I just wanted to be 18. Then after that I stopped wanting to be older. Now I’m ticking 16-24 boxes just to see if I can blag it! I feel like I’ve spent my whole life so far wishing it away. Always wishing I was older, wishing I was somewhere else, wishing I could remember and wishing I could forget too. Wishing I hadn’t ruined so many good things because I was scared or bored. Wishing I wasn’t so matter of fact all the time.” “Wishing I’d gotten to know my great grandmother more, and wishing I didn’t know myself so well, because it means I always know what’s going to happen. Wishing I hadn’t cut my hair off, wishing I was 5-foot-7. Wishing I’d waited and wishing I’d hurried up as well.“
“My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold onto the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done. Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully-fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk.“
“I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back. When I was in it I wanted out! So typical. I’m on about being a teenager, sitting around and chatting shit, not caring about the future because it didn’t matter then like it does now.“
“The ability to be flippant about everything and there be no consequences. Even following and breaking rules…is better than making the rules. 25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realizing. And I’m so sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”
It’s okay Adele…just get in that studio!
