Adele - Turning Down Adele 'Makes Me Feel Sick', Says Hot Chip Star

Adele 's second album '21' has undoubtedly been the success story of the year, selling over 10 million copies worldwide and topping both the U.S. and UK Albums charts - though its phenomenal commercial success had led one songwriter to feel a little unwell.
Joe Goddard, musical guru and percussionist in electronic indie band Hot Chip, is also an in-demand DJ and songwriter. However, during an interview with Contactmusic.com, Joe revealed he turned down the opportunity to work with Adele on one of the biggest albums of the year. When asked of his biggest career regret, Goddard laughed, saying, "There was talk of me and Alexis (Taylor) doing writing sessions with Adele for her latest album which has just become so massive this year". Goddard's hectic DJ'ing schedule and work with Hot Chip meant the pair turned down the offer, saying, "So I guess I wish that we had done that rather than not making time for it. I think that she is an incredible artist and the fact that we could've got involved on that record makes me feel a bit sick".
Goddard is currently producing Hot Chip's forthcoming fifth studio album, while Adele is recovering from throat surgery, which meant she was forced to cancel the rest of her live dates for 2011. Writing on her blog, the London-born songstress explained, "Thank you for all your positive thoughts and get well wishes. I'm doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all".
