Adele, on working with Damon Albarn: “I regret hanging out with him”

Pair didn’t end up writing a song together for ’25’.

Adele has spoken openly about unsuccessful writing sessions with Damon Albarn, saying she “regrets” the experience.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Adele said: “It ended up being one of those ‘don’t meet your idol’ moments. The saddest thing was that I was such a big Blur fan growing up. But it was sad, and I regret hanging out with him.”

Back in September this year, Albarn called Adele “very insecure”, adding: “She doesn’t need to be, she’s still so young.”

Responding directly to those comments, Adele stated: “He said I was insecure, when I’m the least-insecure person I know. I was asking his opinion about my fears, about coming back with a child involved — because he has a child — and then he calls me insecure.”

She added:“None of it was right. None of it suited my record.”

Adele’s new album ’25’ is due out 20th November.
