Until the moment Adele’s, Music’s Comet, Returns With ‘30.’ How Bright Will It Burn? was recorded at Seb Lythgoe’s On Air Studios in Sussex and the sound on offer is a mixture of funky breakdowns, bold composition and vibrato-laced emoting. Completing the equation, Adele is able to explore an array of emotions from carefree cruise through to heartbreak shattered to pure awe.
With hit after hit behind her, how to define the star of pop music’s career for posterity? Not long ago, it was Adele’s delightfully poppy soul-pop that conveyed her undoubted musical prowess but for those of you more loyal to her proficiency in pop choruses and lyrics, surely 30 can’t be too young and on reflection perhaps Adele’s next release, her fifth studio album, will be unveiled with the release of another animated film, A Rainy Day in London. Yet if this album was released in 2019, we would simply say: How Bright Will It Burn?
