The 'Don't Worry About Me' singer Frances admits she found it nerve-wrecking working with Adele's producer Greg Kurstin.
Frances found it nerve-wracking going into the studio with Adele's producer Greg Kurstin.
The 24-year-old rising star - whose real name is Sophie Frances Cooke - jumped straight into working the renowned producer shortly after he spent time with the 28-year-old songstress getting her chart-topping single 'Hello' together.
The flame-haired beauty, who had hits 'Gravity' and 'Don't Worry About Me', was aware of how prestigious the 47-year-old songwriter is and so she decided to go in with an idea in mind for her track.

Bowie's music was bought and streamed by more people than any other artist, including Adele and Drake, according to the BPI.
Following the shocking news of the music icon’s death, which broke in early January 2016, the official body governing the music industry in Britain reports that 1.6 million Bowie albums were either bought or streamed by British listeners in the 12 months of last year, more than any other single artist.
The rediscovery of Bowie’s massive back catalogue, combined with his final album Blackstar that was released just two days before his passing, meant that his sales figures were higher than anybody else.
The star was in a no nonsense mood during a concert in Melbourne
Adele has proved herself a unique performer on many occasions - from regularly interacting with her audience on current events, to helping with engagements or just being her very amusing self. But the latest intervention at her own gig got her mad when the singer had to call out a security guard after he tried to stop fans dancing at her concert.

During a gig in Brisbane, Adele told the crowd she had tied the knot with her long-term partner Simon Konecki.
After months of speculation, Adele has finally confirmed that she has indeed married her partner of several year, Simon Konecki.
The British songstress, 28, has achieved record-beating global sales over the last seven years with her songs of heartbreak and broken relationships.
Over the Christmas period, she and Konecki, who share four year old son Angelo, were spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing what fans took to be gold wedding bands on their fingers. In February, at the 2017 Grammys, she then thanked her “husband” in one of her acceptance speeches, leading many to speculate that she had officially tied the knot with her fiancé.

The singer attended the awards in a green dress by Givenchy.
Adele has hit back at trolls who said she looked like Princess Fiona from Shrek at last month’s Grammy Awards.
At the ceremony Adele won five awards, making her now a 15-time Grammy winner and she also performed an emotional tribute to the late George Michael.
However her success wasn’t enough to stop some online making cruel jokes and claiming her choice of a green Givenchy Couture gown made her look like Shrek’s Princess Fiona, who is voiced by Cameron Diaz in the animated movies.

Adele performed a slow-downed version of ‘Fastlove’ at Sunday night’s ceremony.
During her performance Adele was forced to restart the song to make sure she got it perfect, telling the audience, "I can't mess this up for him.”
The singer has been friends with Swifty for a number of years
Ed Sheeran has lifted the lid on his friendship with songstress Taylor Swift and revealed that neither of them were the popular kids at school. The star - who currently holds the number one and two spots in the charts - said that now they are the popular kids, they have "taken it too far".

Metallica's James Hetfield has praised Adele's ''unbelievable'' live shows and was amazed by her ''candour and coolness'' up on stage.

Adele never used to be one to stand out in terms of her style, but lately she's doing a really good job.
It's quite remarkable how much Adele's fashion choices have change over the years. She's gone from uber casual to uber chic over a period of eight years. Thick knits, leggings and loose fits were her go-to wardrobe staples, but now she's into a more mature, glamorous approach to dressing.

It's true that her body shape has changed a lot since she released her debut album '19' in 2008, and with that it seems she has grown to really appreciate and know her figure, adorning it appropriately and turning more and more heads with each red carpet appearance.

Emeli Sande's family still call her by her real name Adele.
The 29-year-old singer, whose full name is Adele Emily Sande, changed her name when she become recognised as an artist because 'Hello' hitmaker Adele was already a household name, however the star has revealed her parents and close friends and relatives don't refer her to her by her middle name.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the powerhouse said: ''My parents call me Adele. Everyone that knows me before I moved to London and started music calls me Adele.

In a radio interview on Tuesday, Mars said he was initially put off by Adele's attitude when they worked together for 'All I Ask'.
Nearing the end of a massively successful and lucrative tour supporting a similarly massive and lucrative album, Adele has the whole world in the palm of her hand at the moment.
However, one person didn’t quite think she was all she was cracked up to be – at least on first impression. Bruno Mars recalled that, when he worked with her while co-writing the song ‘All I Ask’ for her album 25, she was a “diva” – and not in a good way!

The winners were announced in London yesterday.
The 61st Ivor Novello Awards took place yesterday (May 19th 2016) in London and honoured several classic and contemporary artists from Adele to Simple Minds. It's a ceremony to celebrate songwriting and composing, as opposed to performance, and is sponsored by the copyright company PRS for Music Limited. Once again, it is presented by the British Academy Of Songwriters Composers & Authors (BASCA).
Simple Minds won Outstanding Song Collection
Unsurprisingly, Adele landed Songwriter of the Year after the success of '25' and her hit single 'Hello'. James Bay was another predictable success, the PRS Most Performed Work awarded for his UK number two single 'Hold Back The River'. Ed Sheeran's protege Jamie Lawson won Best Song Musically and Lyrically for 'Wasn't Expecting That', beating Sheeran himself whose track 'Bloodstream' with Rudimental was also up for nomination.

'25' sold more than Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Sam Smith put together in 2015 - despite only being on sale for the last five weeks of the year!
Confirming what we essentially already knew, Adele’s global domination is total, with the news that her latest album 25 outsold the rest of the top five bestsellers around the world put together in 2015.
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), a global body representing the music industry, reports that her long-awaited third album sold 17.4 million units in 2015, despite only coming out in late November. As a result, the organisation concludes that Adele has helped to reverse “two decades of almost uninterrupted decline” in the music business.

The grime MC has made no secret of his love for Adele’s music.
Grime artist Stormzy, real name Michael Omari, got a special shout out from Adele during one of her sold out concerts at London’s O2 Arena. The MC was thrilled at receiving the mention from the pop superstar, who also gave him a hand written letter inside his tour programme.

The list features 300 people in 10 categories, ranging from the arts to technology.
Musicians Hozier and Adele and Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega are among those named by Forbes magazine in their first ever list of the 30 most influential Europeans under 30. The magazine selected 30 people from 10 different categories to make up the lists, which were complied by a panel of experts in each particular field.
Hozier has been named one of Forbes 30 most influential Europeans under 30.
"Researching, vetting and launching our first ever 30 Under 30 Europe list was an incredible task," said Randall Lane, editor of Forbes. "We scoured the continent to find the most talented millennials and, with the help of our expert judges, are proud to honour 300 of the most important young entrepreneurs, creative leaders and brightest stars in Europe right now.”
The 'QI' host ran the rule over a selection of hit singles from 2015, and wasn't particularly impressed by most of it.
Stephen Fry has condemned the state of modern pop music in a new interview, claiming Little Mix to be “horrible” and “toxic” before saying that he’s “not interested” in the state of the pop charts in 2015.
The popular broadcaster and comic actor reviewed a selection of singles released by various artists in 2015 for BBC’s Newsbeat. However, it turns out that Fry isn’t that clued-up on modern pop music, claiming to have “heard of” Adele but very little else.
He saved his most savage criticisms for Little Mix, the 2011 winners of ‘The X Factor’, reacting to their recent single ‘Love Me Like You’ by calling it “horrible! It's just bubblegum pop,” he added.
Sometimes artists wear their influences on their sleeves.
Adele's new song 'Hello' has had the internet going crazy these past few weeks; people are excited for the release of her upcoming comeback album '25' and thus have this across-the-board number one on repeat. However, as with a lot of hit tracks, it hasn't been without its criticism and in this case people are commenting on the remarkable similarity to a Californian storyteller we all know and love.
Adele waves 'Hello' to Tom Waits with new single
The Tom Waits comparison has, in itself, been critized; but whatever people say, the fact can't be ignored that the lyrics to 'Hello' do bare remarkable parallels with Waits' 1973 song 'Martha'. Both dictate a phonecall to a long lost lover, reminiscing about their early days and reflecting on their young, foolish selves. It's not exactly a copy, merely a divine inspiration.

You know how it is - a few drinks, and you want to set the world to rights in messages of 140 characters.
She’s probably the most powerful woman in pop music at the moment, with her third album just a fortnight away from release, but Adele has hilariously revealed that she’s not allowed to send her own tweets because she used to post on Twitter while drunk.
The 27 year old superstar has over 24 million followers on the social networking site, but admitted that everything she wants to tweet now has to be checked over by two people from her management company and “signed off”, after she nearly landed herself in hot water in the past by tweeting after a few drinks. We’ve all been there.
Adele revealed as part of her upcoming BBC special that she's banned from tweeting by herself
RiRi hasn't released a new album for three years
Rihanna hasn’t released an album for three years and rumours are beginning to circulate that the reason it won’t hit shelves this year is Adele and her own surprise third album. The Bajan star was due to release her eighth album in 2014 but instead extended the promotion of her seventh album.
Rihanna hasn't released an album for three years
Now the Daily Star has reported that the album was due to be released this year but could be pushed back to 2016 with reports suggesting that "once Adele was added to the schedule, the scramble to find a new date began".
