Adele, 33 says her new album was recorded to help her nine-year-old son, Angelo Adkins, understand why she and his father got divorced.
"I wanted to explain to him through this record, when he's in his twenties or thirties, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness," the star told Vogue magazine, where she recently graced the front cover looking phenomena, as she smoldered in a canary yellow dress.
"It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that's a real wound for me that I don't know if I'll ever be able to heal," the singer added.
According to reports, the new album will be titled "30" - which is the age at which she married her long-term partner Simon Konecki, and then left him.
"My entire life fell apart and I had no warning of it," said the Hello singer, acknowledging that she had "bit off a grenade" and threw it into her marriage.
On Tuesday, she released a short snippet of her forthcoming single, titled Easy On Me, which will be released in full on Friday, 15 October.
