With only two albums to her name, Adele is one of the biggest singer-songwriters on the planet. Her last album, 21, sold 30 million copies worldwide. Now, with a third album slated for a November 2015 release, the music industry is turning itself inside out.
With a record-equaling six Grammy’s, two Brit Awards, a certified diamond album, and Beyonce and Madonna citing her as an influence, Adele is the sleeping giant of the music scene. She is also a notoriously private, reclusive person (rumour has it she turned down an £80 million offer to tour next year), which puts the stories behind her profound love songs at even more of a premium. And now, with the birth of her baby son Angelo, interest in her extraordinary life will be higher than ever as her new album inevitably soars to number 1 across the world.
