Album Watch: Adele Rolls With The Punches and Turns '21'

Monday, November 8, 2010

There is nothing like anger to motivate oneself. You may not always act rationally, but sometimes a little fire under the bum is the way to get the creative juices flowing. I'm one of those people who writes best under a flurry of pressure and angst, and apparently Adele is the same. Adele is prepping to release 21, the follow-up to her stunning 2008 debut, 19 and as she noted to Spinner, that she was pretty steamed over a recent relationship gone wrong that it made perfect material for her sophmore album. Sounds like Adele's going to get her Jagged Little Pill on.

21, which is being heavily produced by Rick Rubin, is slated for a early 2011 release, with the States seeing the album as early as February. The first single, "Rolling In Deep" isn't even out yet, but is already being described as a "dark bluesy gospel disco tune."

Say that three times fast:
Dark blusey gospel disco tune.
Dark bluesy gospel disco tune.
Dark bluesy gospel disco tune.

Music journalism at it's finest. Whatever a "dark bluesy gospel disco" tune is, I'm all ears considering that it will no doubt be all about Adele and that fantastic set of vocal pipes she possess.
