ADELE plans to write about babies and motherhood for her next album, insisting that she wants a “happy record” in contrast to her previous two based on heartache and failed relationships.
The Someone Like You hitmaker has been through a life-changing fortnight – on Friday (19.10.12), she gave birth to a baby boy and the week before, it was revealed the Tottenham-raised singer and charity boss boyfriend Simon Konecki had decided to move away from London for good.
According to the Daily Mirror, Adele told friends: “I want to release a happy record now. I have never been happier. I have written some stuff and I will release it when I’m ready.”
US-based collaborator Dan Wilson also confirmed a new album is in the pipeline, saying: “She’s never been happier. Adele is in a good place. I am writing as many songs as I can.”
In contrast to her previous album 21 – which was centered around heartache over a failed relationship – Adele’s new songs will be upbeat and she won’t be taking a break from music, as previously suggested.
A source said: “Adele has been working for the last few months. Her music is based around how happy she is with Simon and the changes that come from being a mother.
“She has a few tunes and people will be surprised by the new sound, it’s incredible.
“Talk about her disappearing for years is nonsense. She will be caring for her son until Christmas but it is her intention to have some mixes finished for an album as early as next autumn.”
Possible song titles for Adele’s baby album include Rolling in the Deep Pile of Nappies, Chasing Pavements with a Pushchair and Cold Shoulder (Covered in Baby Sick).
