EDITORS’ NOTES

The follow-up to 21 is a peerless collection of stately ballads and seismic vocal performances. Written with an impressive team of collaborators—Paul Epworth, Ryan Tedder, Max Martin, Danger Mouse, and Bruno Mars’ Smeezingtons squad among them—after the birth of her son and a pressing vocal cord operation, 25 finds Adele singing with newfound strength and clarity. From the volcanic chorus of “Hello” to the hilly melodies of “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” and the stratospheric belting of “Sweetest Devotion,” each song is an expertly arranged, beautifully realized showcase for a once-in-a-generation voice.

MAXIMUM SLAYAGE

I am vanquished. I wasn’t ready. I wasn’t ready to have every fiber of my being and soul kissed and cuddled by the warm familiar voice I’d missed for so long. Dear God, I wasn’t ready. I need to lay down...

Adele has the kind of voice that makes you cry about a stranger you saw two years ago on the bus.

Haunting. Raw. Chilling. Tragically Beautiful.

Adele's agonizing broken heart still aches as she tries to find never ending closure with someone who tore her apart. In her attempt; she delivers gorgeous, chilling, and dramatic vocals as only Adele can. HER BEST SONG. WELCOME BACK, YOU’VE BEEN TERRIBLY MISSED.

About Adele

Dozens of British artists share Adele’s origins—BRIT School, MySpace, pop stardom—but it takes rare talent to have your voice declared timeless in your career’s first flush. Adele honed hers as a kid in her North London bedroom, imitating Etta James every night for an hour. But as soon as she made her televised debut in 2007 (on Later...With Jools Holland), all potential comparisons evaporated: This girl with the whopping hoop earrings and a pub landlady’s brashness had something unique. Heartbreak, indignation, and regret all found a natural home in her regal mezzo-soprano, the instrument that powered her 2008 debut album, 19, and took influence from the American South on 2011’s 21. Both of these albums broke records for breaking records, and made a subsequent operation on Adele’s vocal cords a matter of global import. She recovered immaculately—for proof, watch her comeback performance of “Rolling in the Deep” at the 2012 Grammys—and it took just one word to reintroduce her in 2015. “Hello,” she sang during an X Factor ad break, unveiling her world-conquering single and third album, 25, in the process. Like its predecessors, 25 upended 21st-century metrics and made Adele the first artist to earn the top-selling album of a calendar year three times. She’s now a mother and wife, and the agony of twenty-something heartbreak is well behind her. But if any voice were ever capable of carrying its owner into maturity, it’s hers.
