Adele, fresh off her "Hello" video, the first taste of new music we've had from her in three years, called in for a quick chat with Beats 1's Zane Lowe. A two-minute clip is filled with Adele's trademark cackles and humor, while she and Lowe rib each other about lying about their ages.
“I think this will be my last age one, definitely,” Adele said of 25, which follows 21 and 19. She went on:
“I’m sure I’m wrong with this, but I feel like there’s been a massive change in me in the last couple of years. I think it's having become a parent, and me and all my friends suddenly living grown-up lives and having responsibilities that we haven’t had before and stuff like that. I feel like how I feel about myself is gonna be how I feel forever now. And of course I'm always gonna change my opinions on things and change my feelings of myself and for other people and stuff, but I feel like the idea of calling albums after my age is always to sort of show a photograph, almost, of what was going on in my life then and there. And I feel like not that much is going to change profoundly in me from now on, in terms of like how important years of my life are to myself."
Got it. So, 25 on November 20 (we're still reeling from that info), and then the next one's called...? "Adele: The Real Me," she said, before laughing it off again. "No, I'm just kidding."
