Should I give up/or should I just keep chasing pavements/Even if it leads nowhere Chasing Pavements
The minute you hear that voice, the hair stands up on the back of your neck and you realize this is someone special.
She's just 19, but Adele Laurie Blue Adkinsyou can call her simply
Adelesings; like a woman three times her age, a soul sensation in her
native U.K. who is poised to conquer America with 19, her debut album, which comes out in the States on XL /Columbia Records after debuting at #1 in the British charts.
The first single, Chasing Pavements, a #2 hit in the U.K.,
characterizes her autobiographical approach, written after a brawl in a
London club with her boyfriend, which sent her fleeing out the door
onto Oxford Street.
I hate making people feel awkward and I hate feeling awkward, so I
just left, but he didn't follow me, she explains. I was running down
these gigantic, wide sidewalks that stretch for miles, thinking to
myself, 'Where are you going? What are you doing? You're just chasing
pavements...that you're never going to catch.' Then, I went straight
home and wrote the song.
Brash, wise beyond her years, but down-to-earth and focused, Adele
was raised by a single mom to whom she's devoted in the racially mixed,
working-class London neighborhoods of Tottenham and Brixton, where she
worshiped pop idols like Backstreet Boys, the Spice Girls, Take That
and Britney Spears, not daring to dream one day she might follow in
their footsteps to stardom herself.
I didn't realize this was something I could do until I got my
record deal, Adele admits. I taught myself how to sing by listening
to Ella Fitzgerald for acrobatics and scales, Etta James for passion
and Roberta Flack for control.
You can hear Ella's scats in My Same, Flack's flair for sensuous
melody in Adele's version of Bob Dylan's Make You Feel My Love from
his Grammy-winning Time Out of Mind and James' slow-burning
urgency in Melt My Heart to Stone. But there's also plenty of Adele
in songs like Tired, where she reveals an otherwise hidden
working-class British accent, When I don't get nuffin' back.
Although she went to the same performing arts school in Croydon that
Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis and Kate Nash did, Adele is no pop tart,
one-hit wonder, American Idol finalist or the puppet of some
svengali producer. She's an original, with a vocal style and personal
charisma that is all about human warmth, honesty and embracing the
I have to believe what I'm singing about, she says. That's how
you connect with songs. And that's what seems to have paved the way for
me in the U.K. and Europe. People can relate to me. They believe me.
I'm not some sort of concoction. I'm accessible. You can come up to me
and go, 'Hi,' and I'll be, like, 'Hi' back.
Together, the songs on 19 compose a diary of a year in
Adele's life, one that began with her deciding to stay in London rather
than attend university in Liverpool, which led her to write Hometown
Glory, a paean to the city and her cherished memories of growing up
there. And while insistent she knows little about politics, the verse,
I like it in the city when two words collide/You get the people and
the government/Everybody taking different sides, was about her taking
part in a post-9/11 protest march against the Iraq war.
It was just such a moment, to see all these people come together to
stand against something, she says. There were these mohawk punks next
to rude-boy kids in hoodies. It was great to be a part of.
Hometown Glory was the first song she wrote for the album and it
came after an argument with her mother about whether to leave London
for Liverpoolwhich her mom thought best to teach her to stand on her
ownor remain home, where she was surrounded by things that made her
The song is about wherever you're from, being able to walk past a
bus stop, a clothing store, a restaurant, a bar or a coffee shop and
have your memories of them, she says.
Daydreamer tells the story of her falling in love with a longtime
friend she knew was bisexual. I had no problem with that, she laughs.
But I get so jealous anyway and I can't fight off girls and boys. When I told him that, he said not to worry. Two hours later, he was kissing my gay best friend next door.
Adele calls Melt My Heart to Stone her favorite song on the album.
I just love singing it. When I wrote it, I was crying, she explains.
The song is about breaking up a relationship.
Her manager, a Dylan fan, tried to get her to cover Make You Feel
My Love for a year before she agreed, eventually coming to believe it
was written for her. The song is so convincing, she says. But when I
first heard it, I couldn't understand the lyrics. When I finally read
them, I thought they were amazing. The song just kind of sums up that
sour point in my life I've been trying to get out of my system and
write into my songs. It completes the shape of the album, which is not
sad, but bitter.
The latest in the current spate of talented female
singer-songwriters emerging from the U.K. scene, Adele was the first
recipient of the Brit Awards' newly inaugurated Critics Choice prize
last December even before her debut album was released. She was also
honored as the winner of BBC Music's Sound of 2008 poll of music
critics, editors and broadcasters, as the most promising new musical
artist likely to emerge this year.
Her first U.S. performances in New York and Los Angles this spring
sold out just on the basis of a mention on her MySpace page, which has
received more than 2 million profile views and 2.2 million plays since
it was launched on New Year's Eve 2004.
And while American success is important to her, Adele insists it doesn't mean more than winning over audiences around the world.
I want as many people as possible to hear my music, she says. I
want to do well in Europe, Asia and Australia. It's so weird to come
all this way to do shows and have them sell out. It's ridiculous and
amazing how many people want to talk to me.
Adele admits she's the kind of person who feels incomplete without a
relationship, but for now, she's burying her sorrows in between
performances with soda and Cheetos... and refuses to obsess over her
I love food and hate exercise, she laughs. I don't have time to
work out. Go buy my record; then I'll be able to lose weight. I
actually don't care. I don't want to be on the cover of Playboy or Vogue. I want to be on the cover of Rolling Stone or Q.
I'm not a trend-setter... I'm a singer. I never want to be known for
anything else. I'd rather weigh a ton and make an amazing album then
look like Nicole Richie and do a shit album. My aim in life is never to
Don't expect Adele to fall into the trap of living the blues to sing them, though.
With this album, I had to be feeling quite sorry for myself to be
creative, she says. When I tried to write about fictional stuff,
made-up stories or other people's problems, I couldn't do it. But who
knows? My second album might be really happy.
All you need to know about Adele can be learned from her live
performances, accompanied by just a piano or an acoustic guitar, with a
one-of-a-kind voice that conveys a rainbow of emotions, from sorrow to
triumph, longing to sensuality, solitude to solidarity, a blues-soul
hybrid steeped in the past, yet fully alive in the moment.
I get really scared right before I go on-stage, but as soon as I'm
there, I love it, she says. I feel more at ease performing then when
I'm walking down the street. I love entertaining people. It's a huge
deal that people pay their hard-earned money, no matter how much or
little, to spend an hour of their day to come and watch me. I don't
take that responsibility lightly.
Remember the name: Adele. After listening to her debut album 19, you won't forget the voice.
