Adele says she won’t make music “forever”
Adele opened up about her future in the music industry, saying she won’t be making music “forever”.
The pop star returned last week (October 15) with ‘Easy On Me’, the first song from her upcoming third album ’30’ and her first track of new music in five years.
In an interview with Greg James of BBC Radio 1, Adele commented on her career and its duration. “I won’t do this forever,” she said. “I don’t want to do this forever and people won’t want me to do this forever.”
When James replied that people would probably want her to publish music forever, the singer replied: “[Nobody wants to see me] when i’m 95 or hear me whine or chain smoke, live like a Gray gardens character with all my cats, being eaten alive.
Elsewhere in the interview, Adele jokingly compared factories making CD and vinyl versions of ’30’ to hit Netflix series. Squid game. “They have people standing over them with guns,” she said. “I’m like ‘If this album leaks …’
“But it didn’t leak the last time [on ‘25’], which was a CD at one time physical so I feel good. It’s like that.”
Meanwhile, in an interview with BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball, Adele revealed that there are two other contenders for the lead single from the new album. “I am very interested in Goldfrapp and I said to myself: ‘I can do this music too! “” she said of one of them. “I can do a song, I sure couldn’t do what Alison [Goldfrapp does], she is the absolute queen.
She added, “And there’s another one that’s very 70s, a singer-songwriter at the piano. Just very carpenters, very Elton [John]. “
