Adele - Adele 'Ready To Murder' While Recording 21

In her forthcoming biography, Adele has revealed that she was "furious" when she recorded her Grammy award-winning album 21. The London-based singer had famously split with a boyfriend, which inspired much of the tear-jerking songs on the album. The track 'Rolling in the Deep' is her favourite example of how she managed to turn that rage into chart-topping success.
The Independent have reproduced a segment of the book, which reveals how Adele credits the album's producer Paul Epworth with helping her to transfer her emotions to tape. "I never get angry, but I was ready to murder. I went in crying and stuff, and said, 'Let's write a ballad.' And he was like, 'Absolutely not! I want to write a fierce tune.'" She went on to explain "When I'm about to get angry in my heart, I can really feel my blood flowing around my body... And I kept going, 'Feel my heartbeat Paul!' And the beat of the song was my heartbeat... It just built and built."
Adele also revealed that she wrote the song as a 'f*ck you' to her former partner. She explained "being told that my life was going to be boring and lonely and rubbish, and that I was a weak person if I didn't stay in the relationship. I was very insulted. She certainly seems to have had the last laugh, taking home a clutch of Grammy awards from this year's ceremony and enjoying record breaking success worldwide. The biography, entitled 'Someone Like Adele' is written by Caroline Sanderson and published by Omnibus.
