The Long-Awaited Album “30” By Adele Is Finally Here
Adele, the Grammy Award-winning singer, released her long-awaited fourth studio album 30 on Friday to positive reviews.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Adele’s divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki inspired her first album in six years, 30. Adele’s new album, Columbia, includes the previously released single Easy on Me, which is one of her many collaborations with Greg Kurstin.
Chris Stapleton (on a bonus track), Ludwig Göransson, Max Martin, Tobias Jesso Jr., and Shellback also contribute to the album.
Adele debuted new songs from 30 for the first time on November 14 during a CBS special. There was also an interview with Oprah Winfrey on the show.
Shortly after revealing the album’s full tracklist at the beginning of November, the singer teased Hold On, another single from the album, in a holiday-themed Amazon advertisement.
Adele will perform two nights in Hyde Park in London next year, her first live performances since 2017. While no further tour dates for the album have been announced, the singer has ruled out a Las Vegas residency in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Adele’s latest album, 30, is the follow-up to her 2015 album 25, which won Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2017 Grammys. Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance went to the singer’s most popular single, “Hello,” from the album. She returned to Saturday Night Live for the third time last fall, this time hosting instead of performing as the musical guest.
30 has a Metacritic score of 89 out of 100, indicating ‘universal acclaim’ from critics. Simultaneously, fans flocked to social media in droves to applaud the release and share tear-jerking memes in response to the singer’s powerful lyrics.
Adele’s best album yet, according to Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield, and she has “never sounded more ferocious.”
“You wouldn’t think it was possible, but her vocals have gotten even more expressive,” he wrote.
