Tell us what you think about Adele’s new album 30
Six years on from 2015’s 25, and the month after her comeback single Easy on Me went to No 1 in 25 countries, Adele has finally returned with her new album 30.
Written amid her divorce from the father of her child, it returns to the wellspring of Adele’s songwriting: heartbreak, and the pain of moving on from it. It’s a process, as song titles like I Drink Wine and Cry Your Heart Out make very plain; in another new song, Love Is a Game, she sings: “My heart speaks in puzzling quotes I’ve been trying my whole life to solve / God only knows how I’ve cried.”
So where does this rank in her tear-sodden canon? What wisdom has she learned from a rough few years, and has it found an effective voice in these songs? What are the contributions of new songwriting partner Inflo like – the brains behind Sault and a foil for Michael Kiwanuka and others? And has she rediscovered magic with old Grammy-winning partner Greg Kurstin?
