Adele’s new album, 30, hits store shelves this Friday, November 19. The record follows her 2015 smash hit, 25. While the star’s fans have been looking forward to this album for some time, it might be the most personal record she has ever produced, as it goes into detail about her recent divorce. The 33-year-old announced the split from her husband, Simon Konecki, earlier this year after it took place “sometime in 2018”.
Adele explained that, despite how personal her lyrics are, she isn’t scared of delving into the emotions of her real life.
In fact, she is eager to help other people using her mistakes.
She told Oprah Winfrey in a TV special overnight: “Music helps me in many situations, and I would like to do the same for people… to be reminded that they’re not alone.”
Sometimes, this desire to help her listeners out left her staring back at her own decisions, and facing the fact the world would soon know about them as well.
Adele continued: “There were moments when I was writing the record, or I would listen back to something and be like: ‘That might be a bit too private.’
“But nothing is as scary as what I’ve been through over the last two [or] three years behind closed doors. So I’m not frightened.”
Throughout the interview, Adele performed a number of her new songs, including Easy On Me, which was her fifth number-one single in the USA.
After the track’s release, it reached the top of the singles charts in more than 25 countries.

On where the power of her music comes from, Adele confessed: “I don’t think, as a person, I have what my singing has.
“I’m pulling from somewhere else [and] I don’t know how I access it.”
With a chuckle, she added: “It’s wild because I don’t think I’m that deep in real life.”
Despite this, the British star also recently revealed that she is using 30 as a way of telling her son about why she broke up with his father.
Adele’s nine-year-old son, Angelo, attended the TV event over the weekend to watch his mother sing.
Last month, after the singer announced her new album, she revealed: “My son has had a lot of questions. Really good questions, really innocent questions, that I just don’t have an answer for. [Like]: ‘Why can’t you still live together?’
“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 entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness.” (Via Vogue)
Adele added: “It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to heal.”
She also explained why she no longer wanted to be a part of her marriage.
The Rolling in the Deep singer said: “It just wasn’t right for me anymore. I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew.
“It wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first. But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that.”
