In line with her other three records, British artist’s highly anticipated new studio album “30”, released Friday, plunges into romantic pangs with the heartbreaking high notes set to moving piano arrangements that made her a well-known name.

The debut single from the album “Easy On Me” has reigned supreme on the US and UK charts since its debut four weeks ago, proving the enduring strength of Adele’s prowess as a hitmaker with wide appeal.

His record falls after years without headlines and an expanse of musical silence, defying current pop standards for fast streaming-compatible hits and an urgent social media presence.

But Adele’s announcement this fall that a new album would soon be made up of soundtrack breaks and melancholy contemplation across the globe sparked a media blitz, including covers from Vogue and Rolling Stone as well as a prime-time Oprah Winfrey interview merged into a televised concert that drew over 10 million viewers in the United States.

In the years since the 15-time Grammy-winner’s last album “25” – which included the mega-bit “Hello” – Adele’s nearly decade-long relationship with Simon Konecki, including two years of marriage, dissolved.

She sifted through the fallout from this traumatic time for “30”, probing its implications for her own life but also for her nine-year-old son with Konecki, Angelo.

“There were times when I was writing the record or listening to something and I was like, ‘Maybe it’s a bit too private, maybe it’s a bit too much for me to turn off” “she told Winfrey.

“But nothing is as scary as what I’ve been through for the past two or three years behind closed doors. So I’m not afraid of what people may or may not know.”

‘I want to live’

While the 12-track “30” includes the Adele manual – those slow, sad stories of feeling abandoned and lonely – she doesn’t look back on her previous work.

The new album sees the 33-year-old megastar marry her classic piano pop with new inflections of Motown and reggae, Afrobeat and dance music.

But it’s Adele’s sharp handwriting delivered in her smoky volcanic range that does the heavy lifting on “30”.

“They say to play hard, to work hard, to find a balance in sacrifice”, she proclaims in “I Drink Wine”, a track which goes from a groove of the 1970s to a meditation supported by a choir. gospel about self-acceptance.

“And yet I don’t know anyone who is really satisfied.”

In “Love In The Dark”, she sings “I want to live and not just survive”.

“I definitely felt like this,” she told Winfrey. “But that’s when I let my own friends know who thought I was really happy that actually I’m really unhappy and they all gasped. Do? Why am I doing it? ? “

Some of the “30s,” she told Vogue, were a way of dealing with the answers to the big questions her son had about his parents’ separation, things that are hard for a child to “make sense of. nine years “.

“My little love,” she sings in a song dedicated to her son, which also includes recordings of diaristic voice memos of conversations with Angelo. “I see your eyes / Widens like an ocean / When you look at me / So full of my emotions.”

The North Londoner who now lives in Los Angeles is rare in the music industry in terms of the extent of her fan base, which includes people who listen to terrestrial radio and buy physical albums while hundreds of millions others disseminate his work.

Along with the wave of positive reviews coming in, his new record is set to be another resounding commercial success.

But no matter what the numbers “30” do, Adele swears it will remain a work close to her heart.

“It’s sensitive to me, this record, how much I love it,” she told Vogue.

“I always say ’21’ is no longer mine,” she continued, referring to her acclaimed second album.

“Everyone took it so much to their hearts. I won’t let go of this one. It’s my album. I want to share myself with everyone, but I don’t think I’ll ever let this one go. “
