Adele Loves This Taylor Swift Song and 6 Other Revelations from Her First Print Interview in Three Years.

The singer’s powerhouse negotiators at WME are so confident of the success of her upcoming album and as-yet-unconfirmed world tour that they’ve pitched Apple on a jaw-dropping $30 million tour sponsorship, The Post has learned. In the wake of debuting her record-breaking video for new single “Hello” – and making people lose it on social media – the 27-year-old gave an equally cheeky and fascinating interview with Vice’s i-D. 1.25, due on Nov. 20, marks Adele’s first album in almost five years, and the question isn’t if the release will be big – it’s exactly how big it will be.On “Hello”, the album’s first single, which shattered Vevo records along with our hearts last week, Adele says, “The song is about hurting someone’s feelings but it’s also about trying to stay in touch with myself, which sometimes can be a little bit hard to do. The British singer, who is signed to the indie XL Recordings and distributed by Sony Music’s Columbia Records, on Oct. 23 released “Hello,” the first single from the CD, called “25,” and it is on track to set a new record for downloaded single, according to Billboard.

In 2011, Adele’s icon-status-cementing album 21 sold 11.2 million copies, according to Nielsen Music, whopping sales figures that simply don’t exist in the music industry anymore. It also topped Vevo’s most-viewed list, notching 27.7 million views in 24 hours, topping Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.” “Her team needs to be more realistic about an artist who doesn’t have much of a history of working with corporate partners,” one person familiar with the talks said. After her grandmother died when she was 10, the future superstar thought she wanted to be a heart surgeon. “I wanted to fix people’s hearts,” she said. There’s a stark reason why Swift won so many hard sales in today’s tough climate: She pulled her music entirely off streaming sites like Spotify, arguing they don’t pay artists enough.

Team Adele is still in discussions with tour operators Live Nation and AEG — although the European piece of a global tour could be announced shortly. So ‘Hello’ is about wanting to be at home and wanting to reach out to everyone I’ve ever hurt – including myself – and apologise for it.” She goes on to respond to anyone who might have thought it was about the same man we met on “Someone Like You”, saying, “That’s over and done with, thank f–k. Adele’s last album sold 11 million copies and was 2011’s and 2012’s No. 1 seller. “25” is expected to be available first only in stores ahead of streaming services — with a deluxe CD only in Target — to goose sales, aping the strategy successfully used by Taylor Swift with her “1989.”

My heart wasn’t in it anymore.” Hackers probably won’t find Adele’s lyrics on an iCloud somewhere. “I do it every album: I buy a new pad, sniff it – ’cause smell is important – and then I get a big, fat sharpie and write my age on the front page,” she explained. “25 has five exclamation marks after it ’cause I was like, ‘How the f— did that happen?!’ 21 to 25.” “Becoming a parent and moving past my mid-twenties, I simply don’t have the capacity to worry about as many things that I used to really enjoy worrying about,” Adele said of giving birth to son Angelo James Konecki in October 2012. “Oh yeah, I used to f—— love the drama of all of it, but now I’m a mum I only have so much head space. He makes me be a d–khead, and he makes me feel young and there’s nothing more grounding than a kid kicking off and refusing to do what you’re asking of them. I feel like everyone thinks I’m so far away and I’m not.” The article also confirms that Paul Epworth, who produced “Rolling In The Deep” reappears on 25, on a track called “I Miss You.” Of the song, Adele says, “It’s about intimacy on every level.

It doesn’t hurt that Adele’s fans have been chomping at the bit for this album for years, stalled first because of Adele’s vocal cord surgery, and then her pregnancy with son Angelo, now 3. “I was struggling to write my record, so it all slowed down,” she told BBC Radio 2. “Obviously, I took a bit of time off because I became a mum. She recalls watching the recent documentary Amy and having strong emotions following the film. “I loved her and I went through my own massive grieving process as her fan. I’d finally got to a place where I felt really great about the impact she’d had on my life, in every way,” she revealed. “I felt really, really fond of it all.

But then I read this review of [the film] and that made me go and see it.” “I love watching her, but I kind of wish I hadn’t seen it,” she confessed. “But you know, I love Amy. She soon found herself working with Max Martin, the hitmaker who helped Swift with several of her signature songs, including 1989 singles like “Blank Space” and “Shake It Off.” Now Martin has helped Adele craft a new song called “Send My Love To Your New Lover.” Speaking of the collaboration, Adele said, “I love it, it’s f—— sick. Straight away, a million people in my life will be like, ‘Oh s—, what have I done …'” “I’d like to tour properly,” Adele said about plans after releasing her new album. “I’d like to see Britney in Vegas.
