Divorced parents across the country felt a guilty pang of recognition last week as Adele broke five years of silence to talk to Vogue about her new album, inspired by the end of her marriage.
She and her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, have a nine-year-old son, Angelo, and Adele says the lyrics in some of her new songs are really for her boy, because he doesn't understand why she had to break up with his dad.
"i just felt like i wanted to explain to him, through this record, when he's in his 20s or 30s, who i am and why i voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness," she told the journalist giles hattersley, in a burst of brutal honesty.
'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 added.
' i wasn't miserable miserable," adele admitted, “ but i would have been miserable had i not put myself first.
It ’ s not meant to be the daily vibe.
Last year, I published a memoir called The Hungover Games, a book about my own unusual path to motherhood.
It's a question I asked myself so many times that I nearly didn ’ t publish the book at all.
As her followers flooded the comments' section with questions about her upcoming album, rumoured to be titled 30, she revealed the project will be inspired by her divorce from former husband Simon Konecki, 47, earlier this year.
in its lyrics : 'there is no gold in this river that i 've been washing my hands in forever.
' i know there is hope in these waters but i can't bring myself to swim when i am drowning in the silence, baby let me… ’ we know adele's album is set to be an emotional rollercoaster, with the singer having spoken about it being heavily inspired from her divorce from husband simon konecki, 47, as a way to help her son angelo, nine, understand the situation.
'my mental health is very good at the moment.
i take it day-by-day and i address whatever comes my way. '
'It definitely helps me feel better if I take my time.
Writing my music… yeah it's been really therapeutic for sure.
' I think I lost the appreciation for that.
I got things out that I didn't want to say out loud and talk about,' the Hello hitmaker added.
'What's my next album going to be based on?
Adele could be seen with her hand extended out of the car window moving in time with the music.
like,' i don't get it. '
that's not what society does. '
There are rules that are made up in society of what happens and doesn't happen in marriage and after marriage, but I'm a very complex person. '
I didn't want to end up like a lot of other people I knew.
But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that. '
The last thing I need is someone who doesn't know where they 're at, or what they want.
One thing that definitely happened in my divorce was that it humanised my parents for me.
Adding : 'And in that I found the peace to forgive him.
The alleged spectacular will mark the singer's first live performance in over four years, following her record-breaking stadium tour which concluded in 2017.
Earlier this week, the singer announced that she was returning to music six years after her last album, with her new song "Easy on Me" to be released on Friday ( 15 October ).
Adele, 33, gave out more goss about her upcoming album, which is thought to be titled 30, on Saturday evening, playing a snippet of lyrics from her new single to fans.
During the Live, the singer played a clip of the song to fans for the first time, sending fans – including Alicia Keys, Ben Platt and Rylan Clark-Neal – wild in the comment section.
"Oop my phone's already buzzing, I ’ m gon na get in trouble," she said after playing the clip.
She also answered a question from a fan about what her fourth studio album, rumoured to be called 30, was about.
Adele revealed in an interview this week that she and Konecki, who she shares her son with, were actually married for a much shorter time period than reported on by the press.
As the nation sat down to watch Strictly Come Dancing, Adele was back on socials blessing us with an Instagram live stream for the first time as she prepares to release new music.
Adele seemed frustrated as she couldn ’ t work out how to use the social media app.
Adele also explained why the first single on the album will be so significant.
'It was the first song I wrote for the album and then I didn't write anything else for six months after because I was like, "OK, well, I ’ ve said it all.
