Adele is on the mend after taking a break from her tour dued to laryngitis. The “Rolling in the Deep” singer will hit the road in August to make up her US dates and in September for a new round of dates in the UK. She tells BBC Radio 1 (about her laryngitis):
“It’s basically a hole in your vocal chord, but I sang through it, so that’s why it popped…But I’m better now. It’s fine—I got the all-clear.”
Woo hoo! She also tells the UK Magazine Q about plans for her next album:
“I’ve accumulated some things to write about again. I’d go into the studio tomorrow if I could.”
“It won’t be a big production. I want it to be quite acoustic and piano-led. I want to write it, record it, producer it all and master it on my own.”
“I think it’ll take a lot longer because I want to do it this way. When I move house in the summer, my sound engineer is going to come and help me install a studio and teach me how to use it.”
“I don’t really care about expectations. There was enough of it with this record. If you deliver the songs I think you get away with it. I’m not bothered. I’m not expecting my next record to be as big as this one. That’s impossible.”
I love that she’s keeping it real. Are you excited to hear Adele’s new sound in the future?
According to many reports, Adele has been advised by her doctors to take a month off from singing and avoid talking. The multiplatinum singer was forced to cancel the rest of her North American tour when her voice was showing no signs of improvement. She previously wrote on her official website:
“I’m really frustrated. I was hoping with a weeks rest I’d be better to sing again straight away. However there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctors advice and rest some more. I’m so sorry.”
Her laryngitis can also be attributed to her smoking habit. A source close to the singer tells News of the World: “Adele’s voice is very special. But if she continues to abuse it in the way she has, then she could lose it completely.”
Adele, girl: put the cigs down and rest that beautiful voice!!
UPDATE: Adele posted this message to her website TODAY:
Hello! As I’m sure most of you know i had to cancel over half of my US tour a couple weeks back. it was a devastating decision to make, but i really had no choice. i had to give my voice 2 weeks rest or risk permanent damage. I’m so so sorry. we are in the middle of rescheduling it all and i will see you there when i return. once all the new dates are in place ill let you know straight away! i was having the best time ever on tour, i enjoyed the shows so much and met so many amazing people and got to play with the best artists Ive ever played along side with, and i really am gutted to be back before its finished. thank you though to everyone who came to the shows i was able to do! I’m at home now, watching box sets and sorting things out into neat piles and resting. i haven’t been able to cook for almost 3 months cause Ive been on the road so I’m getting back into that. Ive become obsessed with beyonces i am sasha fierce tour dvd and 30 rock, and Ive also started uploading over 1000 cds to my itunes! long but satisfying! i cant wait to be able to sing again, I’m bored stiff. ive had a check up and im on the mend, i still need to take it easy and rest but things are looking up. i havent been told to not sing or talk for a month, i have given up smoking again! and also im not having singing lessons. i got better before and im getting better this time, and i will do everything i can to make sure nothing like this happens again! im gonna be on stage in london in just under 2 weeks but its a surprise i think!? xx
The best part of this message is knowing that she has an obsession with the I am Sasha Fierce Tour DVD. Mary and I are obsessed as well!! And of course, happy to hear that she’ll be back on stage sooner than expected.
