Adele says she wrote her new album to try to explain her divorce to her son.

Adele has told Vogue magazine that she wrote her new album to help explain divorce to her son.

The singer, 33, who is set to make her musical comeback next week with new single Easy On Me, features on the cover of both the UK and US editions of the magazine.

In the interview she revealed that a lot of her upcoming album has been recorded for her eight-year-old son Angelo.

“I just felt like I wanted to explain to him, though this record, when he’s in his 20s or 30s, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness,” she said in the interview with British Vogue. “It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to heal.”

“He has so many simple questions for me that I can’t answer, because I don’t know the answer. Like why can’t we still live together? That’s just not people do when they get divorced.

“And: ‘Why don’t you love my dad anymore?’ And I’d be like, ‘I do love your dad. I’m just not in love.’ I can’t make that make sense to a nine-year-old,” she told US Vogue.

Adele is dating American sports agent Rich Paul, founder of management company Klutch Sports Group, which represents high-profile basketball stars including LeBron James, Anthony Davis and John Wall.

She told Vogue she did “date before Rich, but they hated it”.

“They’d find it stressful being out or seen with me. Whereas he’s not frazzled by it at all,” she said. “It feels like it’s consistent and considerate enough that I don’t care who knows.”

In the inverview, she also addressed the reason behind her recent weight loss which she said was caused by anxiety.

Speaking to Vogue, she said: “It was because of my anxiety. Working out, I would just feel better. It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it. I work out two or three times a day.”

Adele has not released an album since 2015’s 25, but she has confirmed she is working on a new record. All three of her studio albums so far have been named after the milestone ages she hit during the creative process.

Adele, who headlined Glastonbury festival in 2016, announced her split from charity boss Simon Konecki in April 2019. Their divorce was finalised in March this year, and they share custody of Angelo.

It is the first collaboration of its kind in Vogue’s 129-year history, with each edition of the magazine featuring a different fashion shoot and interview. The British cover of Vogue features a close-up of Adele wearing a yellow dress with a large silver brooch, while the US edition shows her wearing a long green gown. - PA
