It was four years ago since Adele released her blockbuster album “21” and almost 3 years since she released her last single, the James Bond theme with the same title, “Skyfall”. But where is Adele now. Many speculated that her album will be released in 2013. When it was not released that year, music prognosticators said it would be 2014, then 2015. Four more months, it would be 2016. However, there’s no indications of new album from her will be released this year. Is she keeping her fans wait? Well, die hard fans will wait. But some will get tired waiting, unless the album would be as good or better than “21”.
Why does Adele captured the hearts of many? Before anything else, let’s see how the album fared. The album, according to Wikipedia, has sold 30 million albums. If not accurate, I think it is really close to that number. The sales, though, made the album the biggest selling album this decade. Surely, the next to this album does not even hit 10 milion. Rarely, artists do not sell that much with albums. Nevertheless, Adele did it. Apart from her album, her singles sold multiple millions too! So she really captured the hearts of many listeners.
Prior to the making and release of her album, Adele experienced a painful heartbreak which led to the theme of “21”. The album expressed her grief, pain, angst and honesty. It was forceful that many people felt her and bought her record. Her vocals too is excellent, that even other artists, rock or pop musician loves her.
No matter how long, people will surely anticipate for her new album. Her new music will sell as expected after her previous albums were excellent and acclaimed by listeners and critics. Adele made fans wait, but it will probably be worth it. Will this album be “25” or “26”? We don’t know and it doesn’t matter, her music matters more.
