Adele says her upcoming album will feature a voicemail she left her friend as she was experiencing an “anxiety attack” following her divorce from ex Simon Konecki
A voicemail that features on Adele ’s new album will lay bare her pain as she suffered an “anxiety attack” during her divorce.
The singer said one of the tracks on her upcoming record 30 contains a message about her boy Angelo, nine, while she was panicking.
She said: “It’s in the song about my son, it’s at the end, in the outro. I was really frightened.
“I was having an anxiety attack and I called my best friend to try to talk to her to calm me down but she didn’t bloody answer.
“It shines some light on … I’m talking about my son in the rest of the song, and once I put him to bed I can stop putting on that brave face.”
Adele released her first music for six years when she dropped single Easy on Me last week.
She is to open up about her split from Simon Konecki, 47, in her album and hopes their son will listen to it one day and understand her pain.
When asked what she hopes Angelo will take away from his track, the star, 33, said: “So often mum is mum and dad is dad, and who they are outside that role is never really discussed in childhood. So it’s more that.
“And when he does get older he will understand, because life is going to hit him as well, of what I was going through.”
Adele, who teamed up with film-maker Xavier Dolan for a shoot, said she would have liked someone to have written a song about her as a girl.
She added: “I think every parent or child or a parent who has had to be distant, emotionally, at some point in their lives, because of a separation… I could’ve bloody done with it when younger.”
During her career break, in which she endured her 2019 marriage breakdown and also lost her dad Mark in May, Adele admits she has learned how music can help her to find solace.
And she hopes her new record, due out on November 19, has gone some way to “heal” her.
Speaking on Australian radio station Carrie & Tommy, Adele said: “More than ever, I’ve realised how important music is as a comforter.
“I decided to go all in with this one [album], not only to heal myself but to maybe pass on any knowledge or tools that I might have learnt over the last few years. Because it’s been intense.”
On Friday, Adele released Easy On Me and the lyrics appear to urge forgiveness from Simon and possibly Angelo over the break-up.
The song was listened to by tens of millions of fans shortly after its release on YouTube.
Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey will interview the singer as part of a two-hour CBS special.
Adele One Night Only will air on November 14 and is expected to be available in the UK.
It was billed as the Londoner’s “first televised wide-ranging conversation about her album, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son”.
The US show is being co-produced by her TV pal James Corden and will also feature a concert.
