5 things you may not know about Adele, the savior of CDs.

Adele is still surfing the wave of her own success with 21, by far the biggest album of the 21st century in Britain, with sales of 4.7 million in just under five years.But before the globe braced itself for the British crooner to smash every music record in the game — she was Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, aspirational singer.

Now back in the charts, 21 may soon surpass Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the most popular album from the most popular group of all, which has sold 5.1 million copies in Britain in nearly 50 years. Yet more, including Damon Albarn and Phil Collins, were tried and ditched: if Adele needs new material for her break-up songs, these two are doing their best to provide it. The singer’s hotly anticipated new album, “25,” is out Friday, Nov. 20, 2015. (AP Photo/Matt Sayles, File) “I studied music from 14 to 18, and part of the course was to learn how to record yourself, you know, demos and stuff, and I used to give them to my friend Lyndon, and yeah, he put them on Myspace in 2004. It tries to rhyme ‘everything’ with ‘healing’ and ‘side’ with ‘times’, and Adele keeps calling her ex on his home line while also wondering where he is living.

Send My Love (To Your New Lover), co-written with Max Martin, is a repetitive pop ditty which confirms that if there’s one person who doesn’t need a Swedish hit machine, it’s Adele. Adele showed a talent for covers with Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love, but there are no old songs here, just a pile of old titles, from Lionel Richie’s Hello to Little Boots’s Remedy. Her latest single, “Hello,” was the most viewed video on Vevo in 24 hours, the most streamed song on Spotify in a day and the most downloaded song in a week ever.
