ADELE has spoken about her new music, saying she is “in a strong place now, where I feel like I can put that vulnerability out”.

The 33-year-old, who lived in Hove, has released her comeback single, Easy On Me, which is her first new track in six years, with the full album, titled 30, due for release on November 19.

In the run-up to the release of the single, the singer-songwriter spoke frankly in the British and American editions of Vogue about her split from charity boss husband Simon Konecki in 2019.

She also said the album is her attempt at explaining her divorce to eight-year-old son Angelo.

Speaking to the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 on Friday morning, just hours after Easy On Me was released, Adele said she is feeling “good” and “ready”.

“I definitely feel like I lost sight of and lost the appreciation of, like, actually what a gift it is to be into music and be able to make it,” she said.

“I feel like I got a bit frightened of it for a while and it really, really took care of me big time; not just making this record but sort of like diving back into old records of other people’s that I love, discovering new artists on SoundCloud or whatever.

“It brought so much joy to my life, being able to listen to music and wail at the top of my lungs, you know, along to my own bloody songs, the ones as I was writing and stuff like that.

“I don’t know what my outlet would have been had I not had (music) and it made me feel like some people don’t have any bloody outlet, you know, which is why they never get to leap and jump and put themselves first.”

She said of the album: “It was bloody hard work to make, just in terms of, I would sing things I didn’t even realise I was feeling or thinking, but I’m really proud of it and I feel like I can’t unlock a door for my own mental health and take the key with me, got to leave it in the door for everyone else, and I’m in a strong place now, where I feel like I can put that vulnerability out.”

The singer said she had hoped the new song would be out last year, “but here we are now and hopefully it’s perfect timing”.

Talking about the release of the music, she said: “I really wanted to go for, like, an old school rollout, which is hilarious, because most of it relied on social media, which isn’t so old school, but just so the anticipation, I think it’s really, really important, and I feel like a lot of newer, younger artists are just told and taught to undervalue their own art, which does not sit right with me, so I’m trying to, sort of, also maybe inspire some of them to not give it all away at once.”

Easy On Me sees the singer apparently directly addressing her ex-husband and son while explaining why she left her marriage.

Adele sold the country estate in East Grinstead that she owned with Simon last year following their divorce.

Earlier this year, Adele also put her £6.5 million mansion in Horsham on the market.

Adele’s previous albums – 19, 21 and 25 – all referred to her age at the time, with 21 and 25 both winning Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards.
