Why Adele isn’t streaming her new album on Spotify

Adele goes undercover, pranks fans.

As well as performing and chatting with Graham Norton during the TV special, she filmed a comedy sketch, donning a prosthetic chin and nose to subtly alter her appearance for the audition.Surprisingly, none of the contestants recognised her — thanks to her make-up artist who gave her catty eyes, a fake long nose, a protruding chin, and thin lips to conceal her true identity.The clip, which can be seen below, was filmed as part of a BBC music special which aired on TV last night (November 20) and was hosted by Graham Norton.If you’re pretty bummed out that Adele wouldn’t be releasing her latest album on any streaming services, here’s a treat from the top British singer-songwriter.

Throughout the performances, the singer played along backstage with the other ‘Adeles’, trying her best to be un-Adele-like, and they fell for it… till she took her turn and sang on stage. They were joined by “Jenny” as they waited backstage for their audition, with the Grammy-winning singer reinventing herself as a part-time nanny with a “calm and slow” voice.

She then lines up alongside the rest of the lookalikes in a sing-off, chatting to them behind the scenes. “I can’t wait for 25!” one of women says as the real Adele replies, “She’s taking her time.” “I’d like to see you say that to her face,” another one adds, unaware of who she is talking to. Adele earlier released three songs from her third album ’25’ but opted to make the others available for download through iTunes and Amazon instead of streaming them via digital music services. In the message posted online, Adele said she was “grateful to be able to even put another record out” and added the promoting the album around the world in recent weeks has “literally taken my breath away.” See the full message below: “This feels like such a long time coming, my new album is finally out. When she started to be nervous I was confused as she said she’d been an impersonator for four years so I thought ‘come on love, you shouldn’t be nervous.’ I also thought she was a rubbish impersonator as when have you ever seen Adele wear gloves?” Adele impersonator Katie Markham said: “As soon as the first words were sung I knew it was her. I hope you enjoy the record as much as I enjoyed making it for you.” Meanwhile, it doesn’t appear that withholding the album from streaming sites such as Apple Music and Spotify has harmed Adele’s sales power.
