Adele shares tracks from expected ′30′ album | Music | DW

After 15-time Grammy Award winner Adele released the single “Easy on Me” on all streaming platforms in mid-October, she has now shared the 12-song track list for her forthcoming 30 album.

Social media was abuzz with speculation over which songs will strike a chord when the songstress’ hugely expected fourth studio album — the first in six years — is released on November 19. 

Song titles include “I Drink Wine,” “Woman Like Me,” “Can I Get It,” and of course “Easy on Me” —  almost 300,000 people watched the video debut of the single live on YouTube (which has around 135 million views at time of writing)

The ‘divorce album’

Keeping to her tradition of naming her albums after meaningful development birthdays — her past record-breaking albums were titled 19, 21 and 25 — the 33-year-old told the UK and US editions of Vogue that she had written 30 to explain her divorce from Simon Konecki to her young son, Angelo.

There had always been speculation about when exactly the pair had tied the knot. In her Vogue interview, Adele said: “The timeline the press have of my relationship, my marriage, is truly completely wrong. We got married when I was 30… and then I left.” She however declined to elaborate how long the marriage had lasted. “Easy on Me” was seemingly the first track written for this album.

On Wednesday, Adele told fans she was “finally” ready to release 30, which she described as her “ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life.”

“I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago,” she said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve discarded many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones,” she tweeted.

The accompanying music video, which some might find reminiscent of her past hit ballad “Hello,” – is first shot in black and white and shows her speaking on the phone while leaving a house with “For Sale” and “Sold” signs on it. She sings while driving off, the scenes interspersed with memories and music sheets blowing in the wind, after which the video changes into color.

A numbers game in November

Known for hits such as “Someone Like You” and “Hello,” Adele is one of the most successful singer-songwriters of all time, having stormed charts worldwide, amassing on the way a clutch of Grammys and an Oscar for the James Bond theme song, “Skyfall.”

Her last album, 25, went platinum in its first 24 hours, and some music industry watchers are expecting her to take top identify in a November that will see such big names as Ed Sheeran, Taylor rapid, Abba and Coldplay all releasing new material.
