I eagerly awaited the release of Adele’s new album on 20th November. I purchased it immediately in the morning when it was made available and I don’t regret a cent. The songs have enough of her sound to evoke the feelings from her superb album 21, but she changed and evolved as a musician. I like it, the change is organic and believable. There is a more uplifting feeling to the album and a central theme of healing and reconciliation. She also has a lot to say about the passing of time, the realisation that we are all getting older – this resonates with me.
Adele is just as cheeky and funny as before but there’s a new maturity about her. I loved the video where she went undercover among her fans and surprised them with a great rendition of her signature song. The expressions on those women’s faces! 😀
My favourite songs that I listen to on at least once a day are:
- Water under the Bridge (favourite song [4.12. edit])
- Send My Love (to Your New Lover)
- Love in the Dark
