Listing Detail Tabs

Most of the album was made in Malibu with the legendary Rick Rubin (Johnny
Cash, Jay Z, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and back in Kensal Rise in London with Paul
Epworth (Plan B, Bloc Party, Florence). Adele cites Wanda Jackson, Yvonne Fair,
Andrew Bird, Mary J Blige, Mos Def, Elbow, Tom Waits and Kanye West amongst
others as key influences on “21”.

Adele has already had an incredible career. Aged 19, she becomes the first
recipient of the BRITS Critics' Choice Award. Her Mercury nominated debut
album “19” went straight in the UK Charts at no1 and went on to become
double platinum and sell over 2 million copies worldwide. Her debut single
“Chasing Pavements” was also a massive hit reaching no2 in the UK and became
a big hit globally. In 2009, at 20 years old she won 2 Grammy Awards for Best
New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Critically acclaimed by many
of her musical contemporaries, Adele well and truly made her mark. Chapter
2 begins here.

Adele's 2009 debut album, 19, was a Grammy-winning smash hit that revealed
the British singer/songwri­ter's ­knack for bittersweet soul and folk-infused
love songs that brought to mind an infectious mix of Dusty Springfield and Terry
Callier. The album earned her a ton of fans, and interest was high for the
inevitable follow-up. In many ways, her sophomore album, the similarly
age-appropriate-titled 21, is a continuation of the sounds and themes Adele was
working with on 19. She is still the bluesy pop diva with a
singer/songwri­ter's ­soul and seemingly bottomless capacity for heartbreak.
