The first highlight for 2011 is here: Adele returns with "21" a more than worthy successor to their successful debut album "19"!. The first single from the album "Rolling In The Deep" was written by Adele and Paul Epworth and produced, described by Adele herself as a "dark bluesy gospel disco tune" and begins now to violently rotate on every radio station. Much of the album was in Malibu in the studio of the legendary Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Jay Z, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and in London at the scarcely less known Paul Epworth (Plan B, Bloc Party, Florence). Adele calls, inter alia, Wanda Jackson, Yvonne Fair, Andrew Bird, Mary J Blige, Mos Def, Elbow, Tom Waits and Kanye West as key influences on "21". spite of their young age may Adele already look back on a remarkable career. At 19, she became the first artist the BRITS Critics' Choice Award. Your Mercury-nominated debut album "19" went straight to No. 1 in the UK album charts, was awarded double platinum and sold over 2 million worldwide. Their debut single "Chasing Pavements" was also a huge hit, reaching # 2 in the UK and has been around the globe to success. 2009, at just 20 years, Adele received two Grammys: Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Adele truly had a good start; But beware: Chapter 2 is just beginning!
