Adele considered not releasing new album 30: “Maybe I should write another”


On the eve of 30’s release, Adele reveals that her fourth album is so personal, she considered not releasing it altogether.

Adele has admitted that at several points during the album’s creation, she considered not releasing it. 

Her fourth album, 30 will be Adele’s first record to be released since 2015’s 25 and already has one chart-topping hit in the form of emotional lead single Easy On Me.

Already pegged in press and reviews as Adele’s most personal album yet due to its focus on her divorce from charity executive Simon Konecki and her relationship with son Angelo, it appears that the album’s content sometimes cut too close to the bone for its singer.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on his Apple Music Beats 1 radio show, Adele said that “there were moments when I was writing these songs – and even when I was mixing them and stuff like that – where I was like, ‘Maybe I don’t need to put this album out. Like maybe I should write another.'”
