November 16, 2015


One of the most successful female songwriters today, Adele has recently talked to New York Times about her new album “25”, while she also revealed the secret to her songwriting skills.

According to Adele, in order to write a powerful song that will bring her fans to tears, the singer admits her song and lyrics have to first move her.

“In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me. That’s how I know that I’ve written a good song for myself – it’s when I start crying. It’s when I break out in [expletive] tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I’ll need a moment to myself.”

New Album Almost Didn’t Happen

he 27-year-old star is currently breaking all the records with her new single “Hello”, however, Adele revealed she was quite unsure whether she should do another album after the major success of the previous one “21”.

I didn’t think I had it in me to write another record. I didn’t know if I should. Because of how successful 21 was, I thought, ‘Maybe everyone’s happy with that being the last thing from me. Maybe I should bow out on a high,’” the singer admitted, but luckily, she decided to change her mind in the end.

“As time went on, I realized I had no choice. I have to write more music for myself, and there’s nothing else I want to do,” said Adele.
