British soul superstar Adele has revealed the tracklist for her much-anticipated comeback album, which will feature songs titled ‘I Drink Wine’, ‘Can I Get It’and ‘Cry Your Heart Out’.
Her fourth studio album, titled 30, is her first in six years and will be released on 19 November.
The 12-song tracklist, revealed via online pre-orders and Apple Music, opens with ‘Strangers By Nature’ and closes with ‘Love is a Game’. Other tracks include ‘Woman Like Me’, ‘Hold On’ and ‘To Be Loved’.
Adele has said the recording of 30 began three years ago, at a time when her life was “a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil”.
In the six years since the release of her last album, 25, the 33-year-old megastar said she suffered a “year of anxiety” in which her marriage fell apart.
The first single from the new album, ‘Easy On Me’, topped the British charts upon its release two weeks ago.
The Oscar- and Grammy-winning singer broke a five-year silence with an interview for Vogue, published last month that spoke of living like a recluse as she battled anxiety.
For that profile, she played journalist Giles Hattersley snippets from the album – including one song Adele described as being about drinking and “destruction”, which fans are now positing might be I Drink Wine.
“It’s me going out and getting drunk at a bar. Drinking liquor. I start arguments if I drink liquor,” she said of the mystery song. “I can handle my wine, I could drink five bottles of wine and have a normal conversation.”
“I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones,” Adele wrote in a statement that accompanied the album announcement.
“I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go as far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.” -AFP
