Adele Aims For More “Acoustic” Sound On Next Album

    Despite enjoying massive commercial success with her ’21’ LP, which has thus far sold over 7.3 million copies in 5 months, Adele plans to completely revamp her sound on her next album. In fact, the UK singer has revealed to Q magazine that she expects her next release to underperform compared to ’21’.

    Read what Adele had to say below:

    “I’ve accumulated some things to write about again. I’d go into the studio tomorrow if I could.”

    “It won’t be a big production. I want it to be quite acoustic and piano-led. I want to write it, record it, producer it all and master it on my own.”

    The Someone Like You hitmaker added: “I think it’ll take a lot longer because I want to do it this way. When I move house in the summer, my sound engineer is going to come and help me install a studio and teach me how to use it.”

    As for whether she feels pressure to achieve the same success as 21 with it’s follow-up, Adele claimed: “I don’t really care about expectations. There was enough of it with this record. If you deliver the songs I think you get away with it. I’m not bothered. I’m not expecting my next record to be as big as this one. That’s impossible.”

    It is refreshing to see an artist demanding creative control and focusing on growth instead of following the same formula for success. As an accomplished singer/songwriter, Adele obviously doesn’t want to be confined to the same expectations on each record.

    However, Adele’s label will undoubtedly expect her to deliver another hit like ‘Rolling In The Deep’ so complete defiance is an impossibility. It is highly unlikely that they will drop such a commercially viable act but they do have to consider bottom line. Compromise is key.

      She is still a flop compared to Rihanna! All she could sell is albums. She only has one hit single. Rihanna can do it all!

    • Real Voices

      WHY?! I LIVE for the instruments on 21!

      @RihBaby…I assume you are mentally slow.

      @rihbaby
      ADELE A FLOP?
      ITS EVIDENT THAT U ARE AN IDIOT
      AND I AM NOT EVEN TRYING TO HATE
      YOU JUST ARE, IF THAT COMMENT WAS A WELL THOUGHT THROUGH ONE
      ADELE IS NOT ONLY MORE SUCCESFUL AND TALENTED THAN RIHANNA BUT MORE RESPECTED AND INFLUENTIAL
      THE ONLY THING RIHANNA INFLUENCES IS FASHION TRENDS NOTHING ABOUT HER MUSIC INSPIRES OTHERS

    • RihBaby

      @adwoa You mad boo? You pressed? Rihanna OWNS this fatty! Adele only has ONE hit album but QUEEN RIHANNA has FOUR! Bow down!

    • Omg

      @RihBaby why would Rihanna even be mentioned in the same sentence as Adele? Adele a flop? Well,

      1. Adele has a #1 album, Rihanna doesn’t.

      2. Adele single stayed #1 for months, Most of Rihanna’s are #1 for ONE week.
      3. Legends speak about Adele’s influence on music, NO one ever speaks of Rihanna’s(only pussy poppin credits).
      4. Adele won 2 solo Grammys, Rihanna has only ONLY (1) solo Grammy.
      5. Adele has sold 7.3 million albums worldwide after only (5) months, 2.7m in US which is more than Rihanna’s GGGB.
      6. Does Rihanna have writing, producing, creative control on ANY of her albums? No.

      Please SIT, you’ve just been dragged!

      I think it’s great. I want the music industry to get back to artists CREATING and influencing their own sound. The days when artists actually wrote and produced their own music. It’s getting so tiring. I’m so tired of Europop and trendy shit all over the radio. I don’t care how many # 1s you get, if you don’t have the talent to back it up then it means nothing. Adele has the TALENT!!

    • WonderLand19

      @KingAquarius and @Omg, PREACH!!!

      Real talent is coming back in a massive way. Adele, Jennifer Hudson, Chris Brown, Dirty Money,Big Sean,Jessie J, Tinie Tempah,Jill Scott and Beyonce have all delieved real music in their albums. The likes of Rihanna/Black Eyed Peas have to be here to show what real talent looks like.
      TEAMBREZZY!

    • @OMG you better speak the gospel. I mean i LOVE me some Rihanna, but seriously you are comparing Rihanna to Adele. Like that’s just complete utter BLASPHEMY like come on now, let’s compare…seriously that’s just a joke.
