Adele's new album features 'f**k you' songs about ex-boyfriend
Adele's new album will feature "f**k you" songs about her ex-boyfriend.
The 'Hello' hitmaker has confirmed her track 'Send My Love (To Your New Lover)' on her forthcoming LP '25' is about her former flame, believed to be photographer Alex Sturrock, who broke her heart and inspired her albums '19' and '21.'
She told the Guardian newspaper: "This is my f**k you song. My love is deep and true with my man and I can finally reach out a hand to the ex and let him know that I'm over it."
The 27-year-old superstar will release her third album on Friday (20.11.15) following a four-year break and, while the pressure of creating a follow-up proved to be difficult, it was her three-year-old son Angelo - who she had with her partner Simon Konecki - who encouraged her comeback.
Asked about her motivation to return, she explained: "Um. My son. I felt so mega having given birth; the confidence from that, I felt unstoppable. I'm sure most women feel that ... Towards the end of the '21' stuff, I couldn't remember why I was doing it any more. I couldn't answer the question: 'Why am I halfway around the world? On my own?'
"But then, after I had my son, I thought, 'Yeah, that's why I did it all.' I felt proud of what I'd achieved with '21' for the first time. And now everything I do, in every channel of my life, is part of a legacy that I'm making for my child.
"For my children, if I have more. I'm not motivated by much, certainly not by money - but I'm motivated by that. I want my child to see his mum running a proper business again. Being a boss again. Hopefully smashing it again."
