Adele's next album: No more "bitter witch"

Feb 15, 2012 at 5:33 p.m. ET

Adele's first two albums were all about heartbreak, but her next will take a decidedly brighter turn -- thanks to her new love.


If you're looking forward to another album full of tissue-worthy breakup songs from Adele, you're going to be disappointed. The Grammy winner said now that's she's in love, her music will take on a new theme.

Adele told Vogue that now that she's in a happy, fulfilling relationship with entrepreneur Simon Konecki, she's ready "to write a happy record, and be in love and be happy."

"He's wonderful," Adele said of her new man. "And he's proud of me, but he don't care about what I do or what other people think. He looks after me. I don't think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn't been for him."

"I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way," she said. "I'm done being a bitter witch."

It's a far cry from the guys she wrote her first two albums about. Her inspiration for her debut album 19 tried to anonymously sue her for royalties last year; he has yet to be identified. Her 21 inspiration has been unmasked as a British visual artist.

But Adele isn't harping on the past anymore. In fact, all she can focus on right now is the amazing night she had at the 2012 Grammys, where she took home a whopping six awards -- tying Beyoncé for the most won in a single year by a female artist.

"Despite the phenomenal year, I swear I didn't think I had any chance," she wrote on her blog. "All the categories were full of people I adore with brilliant songs, records and performances. So not in my wildest dreams did I think to actually prepare anything proper to say just in case."

"The night itself was so amazing, I met so many incredible people and everyone we've lost this year were on our minds and in our hearts and it was lovely to remember them all together as fans and friends."
