The actress feels confident about her songs only when it moves her to tears

London: Oscar-winning singer Adele feels confident with her new material only when it “really moves” her and leaves her needing a moment alone to compose herself. “That’s how I know that I’ve written a good song for myself — it’s when I start crying. It’s when I just break out in tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I’ll need a moment to myself,” she said.

The 27-year-old crooner admits she used to “drown” in her emotions when writing her second album, 21, but loved the drama of “falling apart”.

“I just used to let myself drown. If I was sad, if I was confused — which I would say were the running themes for most of my records so far — I’d just go with it,” she recalled. “I’d let myself fall apart, and I’d sit in darkness, and I’d feel sorry for myself, and I wouldn’t accept any help to get out of it, in terms of going out with my friends to cheer me up, or staying busier. “I loved the drama of it all,” she added.

But the Someone Like You hitmaker said she never wants to bring herself so low again, because of her responsibilities to her partner Simon Konecki and their three-year-old son, Angelo.
