Alan Carr teases "amazing" new Adele album

"That voice, it’s like an old friend..."

Adele's close friend Alan Carr has shared his thoughts on the singer's forthcoming new music. 

In an interview with Grazia, the comedian revealed he has heard some of Adele's new songs and revealed what fans can expect from her much-anticipated fourth album.

"I’ve actually heard some tracks on it [and] oh my god, it’s so amazing," he said.

"The thing is… they change all the time because they’re really rough things. Everyone’s like, ‘What’s it like? What’s it like?’ But I said to her, ‘That voice, it’s like an old friend.’

“There are some people in the charts who sound a bit like Adele and you go, ‘Oh, they sound [like] Adele’ and then when you hear Adele’s voice again you go, ‘Oh no, there’s only one. There’s only one Adele."

Asked if Adele's voice had changed following her recent weight loss, he said: "No, no, no. She’s still got a chunky but funky voice, don’t worry."

Adele and Alan Carr have been close friends for years; in 2018 the singer officiated his wedding before flying them to Las Vegas to watch Celine Dion perform live.
