Adele Says ’30’ Album Is a Rollercoaster: ‘I Feel Like This Album Is Self-Destruction… and Self-Redemption’

Adele, the 15-time Grammy winner with over 120 million records sold globally, had her first sit-down interview in five years with Vogue, to discuss her fourth studio album, "30," her divorce and inevitable return to the spotlight.
But the article describes her as being "done with lambasting her exes in her lyrics," quoting the singer as saying, “I have to really address myself now.”
I really want people to hear my side of the story this time.” Ultimately, Adele says "30" contains a rollercoaster of emotion: “I feel like this album is self-destruction, then self-reflection and then sort of self-redemption. But I feel ready.
The star explained what she hopes for in “30": "With this one, I made the very conscious decision to be like, for the first time in my life, actually, ‘What do I want?’”
It’d be so awkward. I think a lot of women are going to be like, ‘I’m done.’” “Can you imagine couples listening to it in the car? Adele married the businessman in 2018 when she was 30 — the titular name of the album — and said the record will encourage those lost in a relationship to move on.
The star, who had her last significant interview in 2016, said, "I have to sort of gear myself up to be famous again, which, famously, I don’t really like being.”
No song titles from the forthcoming album are revealed in the interview, although the writer, who heard four of the tracks, describes the record's closing number as "a seven-minute opus" that is "a string-swirling, Garland-invoking, jazzy, campy, swooning delight, packed with world-weary end-of-the-show reflection, and featuring a vocal for the ages."
There are no featured guests on the record. What she wanted, in part, was to resume working with Greg Kurstin, who paired famously well with her on "25," and Max Martin, Inflo (known for his work with Sault) and Swedish composer and producer Ludwig Göransson, who won an Academy Award for his “Black Panther” score and has worked closely with Childish Gambino.
Really good questions, really innocent questions, that I just don’t have an answer for … And that’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to heal.” 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. (like) why can't you still live together?… In the past five years, the “Hello” star has been raising her son Angelo and gotten married and divorced to her now ex-husband, Simon Konecki. “My son has had a lot of questions. It made him really unhappy sometimes. Adele said the new album explains her life changes, but is ultimately a letter to her now 9-year-old son.
