Adele Plans to Make a Country/Bluegrass Album
The singer has announced her follow-up plans after this year's hugely successful '21.'
British singing sensation Adele may have rescheduled most of her American summer tour because of laryngitis, but the artist did manage to pick up some U.S. influences during the short time she spent singing across the pond. And now she says she plans to use them on her third album.
"I was exposed to a lot of country, rockabilly and bluegrass," the songstress said of her time in America in and interview with The Sun."The melodies and to-the-point lyrics I have found in a lot of American styles of music is definitely something I'm going to be pursuing heavily from now on." Adding that hearing American country musicians for the first time is "like a four-year-old in a candy shop who's discovering sweets again."
And, she's not just planning to channel the style. Adele says she wants to actually go to the places where country and bluegrass originate. "I want to spend some time in Austin in Texas and Nashville, Tennessee, and learn about it," she said.
Her smash-hit sophomore album, 21, has sold over 2.8 million copies, and spent an impressive 11-week reign atop the Billboard charts, making it the top-selling album in the world so far this year.
