Adele Spills on Her New Album in Her First Interview in 3 Years

Erin Fitzpatrick

It's been a big few days for Adele. She released her music video for "Hello," joined Instagram, and announced the release date of her upcoming album (mark your calendars: it's November 20). Now, i-D magazine has published her very first interview in three years.

In it, the British singer reveals lots of tidbits about the new album, dubbed 25. "I think the album is about trying to clear out the past," she tells i-D. "Becoming a parent and moving past my mid-twenties, I simply don't have the capacity to worry about as many things that I used to really enjoy worrying about." She elaborates about how she used to actually love the drama of worrying: "But now I'm a mom I only have so much head space," she clarifies. "I've got to clear a lot of stuff the fuck out, which is really therapeutic, 'cause I can really hold a grudge. Life is so much easier when you don't hoard your past."

She goes on to say that this new album won't be like her last one." I was very conscious not to make 21 again. I definitely wasn't going to write a heartbreak record 'cause I'm not heartbroken, but I probably won't be able to better the one I did, so what's the point? … Also, how I felt when I wrote 21, it ain't worth feeling like that again." Ain't that the truth?
