The artist releases her single, Chasing Pavements, from her album, 19.
That song is about should I give up or should I just keep trying to run after you when there’s nothing there? I was only with him for four months but when I signed my record deal I had to write an album, as I hardly had any songs, so I wrote about him.

It’s me saying, ‘Get the f— out of my house instead of me begging him to come back. It’s my reaction to being told my life was going be boring and lonely and rubbish, and that I was a weak person if I didn’t stay in a relationship. I wrote it as a sort of ‘F--k you.

Adele appears on the cover of People to discuss losing her dad, heartbreak, and losing her voice. On her first real relationship:
It was my first grown-up, intense relationship. But things fell apart after more than a year, and though he didn’t cheat the breakup was still crushing. We fell out of love. It was more devastating than actually having something to blame it on. I locked myself in my house for nine months drinking four bottles of wine a night. That was probably the lowest point of my life.

Adele releases Hello, her first single in three years. She previews the song on UK Radio 1
I feel so sick. I’m so nervous. … I thought I’d burst into tears…I obviously want people to like it. When I wrote it, I knew this would be the first thing everyone heard from me. I want to surprise people.
In her first interview in three years, with i-D magazine, Adele talks about the songs on 25, and about her life since her previous album. On whether Hello is a follow-up to Someone Like You:
Oh, God no. That’s over and done with, thank f-ck. That’s been over and done with for f-cking years. No, it’s not about anyone specifically. It’s about friends, ex-boyfriends, it’s about myself, it’s about my family. It’s also about my fans as well. I feel like everyone thinks I’m so far away and I’m not.
On the influence of Amy Winehouse:
I wasn’t going to [see the recent documentary]. 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 … I wasn’t really that into the saved voicemails and stuff like that. I felt like I was intruding so I actually felt a little bit uncomfortable and that ruined it for me. I love watching her, but I kind of wish I hadn’t seen it. But you know, I love Amy. I always have, I always will. Do you know what makes me super sad? That I’m never going to hear her voice again, other than how I’ve heard it.
