Adele’s ’f**k you’

Adele’s new single is not a cover of the rude word-laden Cee-Lo Green song (which would have been fun to hear). Though it still is a ’f**k you’ - only to a critical ex-boyfriend.

The twenty-one-year-old British soulstress has released Rolling In The Deep, the lead single from her new album 21, and has revealed it was inspired by a less-than-kind former lover.

‘I guess it's sort of my musical equivalent of saying things in the heat of the moment and word vomiting,’ she said of the single, which you can download from all the usual places now.

’It was my reaction to being told that my life was going to be boring and lonely and rubbish and that I was a weak person if I didn't stay in a relationship. So yeah, I was very insulted and I wrote [the song] as a sort of f**k you.’

The singer, who is a confirmed act at this year’s Brits, also revealed how she enjoyed working with Paul Epworth, the track's co-writer and producer.

’I wasn't really expecting anything out of the session, just because he's known for being very indie, and I'm known for being very pop, so I wasn't sure if it would work too well, but it ended up being a match made in heaven,’ she said.

’He brought a lot out of me. He brought my voice out as well. There's notes in that song I never even knew I could hit.’
