Pharrell Confirmed To Collaborate With Adele On New Album/ Says That Adele Is In No Rush:
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest at Cannes Lions, Pharrell revealed that he was working with Adele on her follow-up to '21.'
Pharrell also says that the singer is in no rush to release her album, as she is putting her son first. "She’s kinda like, ‘OK, guys, I’m gonna open my diary for 20 minutes.’ So it’s like, OK, you have 20 minutes, or 32 minutes really then she gives it to you and closes it up and disappears, and she’s off with her beautiful boy and that’s what it’s all about," Pharrell says.
Based on the previous artist Pharrell has worked with recently, Pharrell has really been developing much of a motown sound, just as he did with 'Jhud' for example. I would love to see an upbeat sound from Adele. This would really show that Adele is evolving, and she should be in a happy place in her life at the moment. Seems interesting, and random as well. It would be an unexpected change musically, as many fans of the singer have become accustomed to her heartbreak subjects.
This sounds like a nice match-up, as I've already gotten quite a vision to how this would sound. Anyway, I'm glad that Adele plans to take this album slowly. This could only mean authenic material coming from the singer, because I'm sure this takes a lot of stress off of Adele's shoulders, because she isn't having to be pressured nor rushed. Also, though I will admit I haven't been a fan of Pharrell's recent productions, I think with the right voice Pharrell could be on to a hit. Adele could definitely be the 'right' voice, that mixtures well with Pharrell's sound. Also, I'm wondering with Adele now being a mother, can we expect less promo from her upcoming releases? I mean, we can't be certain that this will be a successful era for Adele if she plans to evolve musically, because fans would have to adapt to a new sound, but we are not officially certain with what a collaboration between Pharrell and Adele could exactly mean. The first impression would usually be something fun or funky. Still, I'm excited for whatever Adele decides to bring to the table this year, especially if Adele finally decides to change it up, musically. Bring on that the new music.
