The singer, who gave two high-profile interviews to Vogue and British Vogue earlier this week, confirmed that no guest was appearing on her new album, but that she had the production and songwriting of some of pop music’s most notable figures.
Swedish hit giant Max Martin, who has worked with Taylor Swift, Coldplay, The Weeknd and many more, is one of them. Shellback, Swedish composer and producer Ludwig Göransson who won an Oscar for his Black Panther score, joined Martin on a production concert.
Inflo, the British producer who worked on Little Simz albums Michael Kiwanuka and who is a member of the elusive collective SAULT, has also been dropped. Canadian singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr., said Adele, helped with a “very powerful song” which she described as “an Edith Piaf-y moment”.
In the Vogue interview, Adele also said she was inspired by the inclusion of vocal notes in her music by Tyler, the creator and Skepta. “I thought it would be a good idea, considering that everyone has been at my door for 10 years, as a fan, to say to me ‘Would you like to come in?'” She said in reference. to voice recordings on the project.
She added that a song was recorded during Breakfast at Tiffany’s‘s was playing muted in the studio, and it was written with Inflo. “He’s brutally honest with me like no one else would dareShe said of the producer. “He’s kind of got that constant resting bitchy face, really.”
Elsewhere in interviews, Adele talked about her fourth album, which would be called “30”, being her most personal to date. She said it was not so much a ‘divorce album’ (following the news of her separation from ex-husband Simon Konecki) but rather a divorce from herself and her past assumptions. on others.
The single “Easy On Me” was teased earlier this week, which will be released on October 15th.
