English singer, Adele, who just released her new singles, first in six years, has held fans spellbound as she indirectly gives an insight on her life through the song.
She clearly stated that her divorce from Simon Konecki inspired her new song.
The singer said: “There ain’t no room for things to change / When we are both so deeply stuck in our ways / You can’t deny how hard I have tried / I changed who I was to put you both first / But now I give up.”
” I know there is hope in these waters/ But I can’t bring myself to swim / When I am drownin’ in the silence.”
“There ain’t no room for things to change / When we are both so deeply stuck in our ways / You can’t deny how hard I have tried / I changed who I was to put you both first / But now I give up.”
She makes it clear how she did not want Simon to have any animosity towards her for making the decision to split in 2019 as she asks him to “go easy on me” in her lyrics for the new track.
She went on to give details of her life while taking part in several interviews. As she spoke on Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James, the star said: “I was making decisions in my life which have been well documented over the last few years.”
She further added “It was sort of that thing of initiating a discussion – not in the case of my son’s dad – or a massive bloody fight, which I definitely started some fights post my relationship.”
“Normally I’m not very confrontational, but it was like, ‘Hang on a minute, bear with me while I try and find my feet in this situation’.”she concluded.
Adele’s career kicked off immediately after four months of graduating.
She published two songs on the fourth issue of the online arts publication PlatformsMagazine.com, had recorded a three-song demo for a class project and given it to a friend.
The friend posted the demo on Myspace, where it became very successful and led to a phone call from Richard Russell, boss of the music label XL Recordings.
Adele doubted if the offer was real because the only record company she knew was Virgin Records, and she took a friend with her to the meeting.
Nick Huggett, at XL, recommended Adele to manager Jonathan Dickins at September Management, and in June 2006, Dickins became her official representative.
September was managing Jamie T at the time and this proved a major draw for Adele, a big fan of the British singer-songwriter.
Huggett then signed Adele to XL in September 2006.
Adele provided vocals for Jack Peñate’s song, “My Yvonne,” for his debut album, and it was during this session she first met producer Jim Abbiss, who would go on to produce both the majority of her debut album, 19, and tracks on 21.
In June 2007, the mother of one made her television debut, performing “Daydreamer” on the BBC’s Later… with Jools Holland.
Adele’s breakthrough song, “Hometown Glory”, written by her when she was 16, was released in October 2007.
By 2008, Adele had become the headliner and performed an acoustic set, in which she was supported by Damien Rice.
She became the first recipient of the Brit Awards Critics’ Choice and was named the number-one predicted breakthrough act of 2008 in an annual BBC poll of music critics, Sound of 2008. She released her second single, “Chasing Pavements”, on 14 January 2008, two weeks ahead of her debut album.
The song reached number two on the UK Chart, and stayed there for four weeks. The album 19, named for her age at the time she wrote and composed many of its songs, entered the British charts at number one.
The Times Encyclopedia of Modern Music named 19 an “essential” blue-eyed soul recording. Adele was nominated for a 2008 Mercury Prize award for 19. She also won an Urban Music Award for “Best Jazz Act,” and a Music of Black Origin (MOBO) nomination in the category of Best UK Female.
In March 2008, Adele signed a deal with Columbia Records and XL Recordings for her foray into the United States. She embarked on a short North American tour in the same month, and 19 was released in the US in June.Billboard magazine stated of it: “Adele truly has potential to become among the most respected and inspiring international artists of her generation.”The An Evening with Adele world tour began in May 2008 and ended in June 2009.
