Tony Visconti, David Bowie’s longtime producer, has apologised for the seemingly negative comments that he made about English singer-songwriter Adele’s voice.

Last week, the producer suggested that the singer’s vocals might have been digitally enhanced.

“I’m sorry that what I said with regard to what’s being played on radio was misconstrued, yet I cannot apologise for something taken the wrong way,” he said adding, “If Adele has taken my comments as offensive that was certainly not my intent.”

He further said: “Adele has a great voice and it brings pleasure to millions.”
