Adele’s new album will not feature any other artist.
The 33-year-old singer is preparing to release her highly anticipated fourth album and while she has worked with producers Greg Kurstin, Max Martin, Inflo and Ludwig Goransson on the record, fans shouldn’t expect to hear duets. like the ‘Skyfall hitmaker insisted that it was not “correct” to bring someone else’s voice to the songs.
She told British magazine Vogue: “It’s not that I don’t want to. It is not calculated. It was never right for some reason.
The album was written following Adele’s separation from her husband Simon Konecki and she admitted that she always found it heartwarming to go to the recording studio when times were tough.
She said: “I really feel like when my life gets out of hand, I want to be in the studio because nobody can have me.
“I don’t have to face problems, problems. I think it’s less, ‘My world is falling apart, I need to go write about it’, it’s more just my safe space.
And the “Skyfall” singer is “ready” for people to hear what she has to say on the record.
She said, “I feel like this album is self-destruction, then self-reflection, then sort of self-redemption. But I feel ready. I really want people to hear my side of the story this time.
Adele hopes that one day the songs will answer some of her questions and those of Angelo, her eight-year-old son, about their separation.
She explained, “My son has had a lot of questions. Very good questions, really innocent questions, to which I just don’t have an answer. ‘Why can’t you live together yet?’
“I just felt like I wanted to explain to him, through this record, when he’s in his twenties or thirties, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his whole life in search of my own happiness.
“It made him really miserable sometimes. And it’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I will ever be able to heal.”
