After six long years, Adele is back with a new album.
The “I Drink Wine” singer released 30 on Nov. 19 to much fan affair.
The songstress took to Instagram on Friday to celebrate, with a photo of herself in the studio along with the caption: “It was a ride, so I threw my arms up and screamed! Love you all ♥️”
In the lead up to the drop, Adele took part in the “One Night Only” special which saw her perform old and new hits at the Griffith Observatory in L.A. for a star-studded crowd and an intimate interview with Oprah Winfrey where she opened up about the story behind the album.
Winfrey celebrated the release as well on Friday, posting a photo of the two from the interview. The Instagram post reads: “Who’s excited #30 is finally out? US! I’ve been singing the songs for a month now. “Hold On” will become an anthem around the world for anybody going through a struggle. “I Drink Wine” will be appreciated by all of us wine connoisseurs. And I need therapy to get “Easy On Me” out of my head 🤣 Congrats on releasing your truth today @adele!”
In the interview, Adele discussed how the album was a way to explain her divorce from Simon Konecki to their son, Angelo.
“Trying to explain to a 6-year-old, ‘I do love [your dad], I’m not not in love with him,’ it makes absolutely no sense to a 6-year-old,” she said.
“So there were so many answers I just couldn’t give him ’cause there aren’t any really. Like, you know, that he would understand,” she added.
On the R&B ballad “My Little Love”, Adele directly addresses her son, Angelo, about her divorce.
“I wanted you to have everything I never had,” she tells Angelo in one of the clips. He is heard in many of the clips talking to his mom.
She adds in another, “I’m so sorry if what I’ve done makes you feel sad.”
“Adele: One Night Only” is available on demand with the Global TV App and STACKTV.
