Pre-order 21 on iTunes
Videos of Adele are popping up all over the internet, and it’s all being archived on Adele.tv for “21 Days of Adele.” Each day they release another video or some kind of extra goodie. Besides that, she’s being praised by Perez Hilton and making fans cry with joy on VH1′s Unplugged, and even behind the scenes with the Viceland music blog.
Adele absolutely kills this cover of Cheryl Cole‘s “Promise This” for BBC’s Live Lounge. Originally an upbeat dance song, Adele tones it down to show off her pipes, as she should. Lucky for us, it’s also a technique we hear in her upcoming album, 21.
While the new album by Adele has not officially arrived in the US yet, the Euro scene and the savvy, impatient blogosphere is already eating it up. Some press highlights include:
“With just a piano as backing there are no layers to pull back or hidden meanings to uncover and its simplicity will leave you feeling the full effects of her beautiful make-your-hair-stand-on-end vocals. It’s an early shout, but it could very well be the album of 2011.” – Punchbowl Blog
“This is a serious and frequently astonishing album.” -Holy Moly
“Her second offering has lived up to the reputation she has created from her debut and powerful voice which is the female Johnny Cash.” – M is for Music
“21 is simply stunning. … Genuinely brilliant.” – BBC
21 will be released in the US on February 22nd on Columbia Records.
