Adele Continues Her Phenomenal Comeback Campaign With An Exclusive Cover Interview with I-D Magazine!
No matter where you are, chances are that you’ve heard an Adele song today, passed by one of her newly released magazine covers or have seen one of your many social connections obsession about how much they love the prolific artist. It seems like just yesterday we were going into fits over the artist’s Rolling Stone cover, well that actually was yesterday, and the starlet is showing no signs of slowing down as we all wait anxiously for updates regarding her newest album, 25.
In her interview with I-D , Adele gives an intimate look into her creative process and what inspires her to keep writing and performing. Check out a few of our favorite highlights below:
Adele on Starting Her Latest Album:
“I do it every album. I buy a new pad, sniff it – ’cause smell is important – and then I get a big, fat Sharpie and write my age on the front page. 25 has five exclamation marks after it ’cause I was like, ‘How the fuck did that happen?!’ 21 to 25.” The record is about getting older and becoming nostalgic, she says. It’s about what was, what is, what might have been. It’s about missing things that you had no idea were so precious, like being 18-years-old and drinking two liter bottles of cider in Brockwell Park with your mates. “Those were the most real and best moments of my life and I wish I’d known that I wasn’t going to be able to sit in the park and drink a bottle of cider again.”
Adele On Rumors About the Meaning Behind Her Songs:
Oh, god no,” she says immediately. “That’s over and done with, thank fuck. That’s been over and done with for fucking years. No, it’s not about anyone specifically. It’s about friends, ex-boyfriends, it’s about myself, it’s about my family. It’s also about my fans as well. I feel like everyone thinks I’m so far away and I’m not. Everyone thinks I live in fucking America, I don’t.”
Adele onÂ HER LATEST ALBUM AND THE FUTURE:
“For a while, it felt like this moment was never gonna come ’cause I couldn’t access myself to write a record. So I’m super chuffed and really proud of the songs. I’m shitting myself about it all, but it will be exciting.” What’s next? “I’d like to tour properly. I’d like to see Britney in Vegas. Dunno about more kids. Maybe after what Xavier said, I’ll go into acting… I’d like to make another record,” she decides with a sense of finality. “I’d like to be able to stand the test of time and the speed that the world is moving. I’d like to make records forever with the time I’ve been given for this one. If I can do that I’ll be really fucking happy.”
