Adele is getting candid about her intentions regarding her latest album release.
The 33-year-old singer dropped her fourth studio album 30 earlier this month, which her son is apparently not too fond of.
During an interview with Zayn Lowe for Apple Music, the Grammy-winner explained that her 9-year-old Angelo is “not a fan” of her music, and that the new tracks are too mature for the younger generation.
“I don’t want twelve-year-olds listening to this record,” she told Lowe. “It’s a little too deep.”
“I prefer to take care of people who are at my level, who have spent the same amount of time on earth and have gone through all the same things,” she continued.
The new music comes as Adele’s first album since splitting from her ex-husband Simon Konecki back in 2019, and many of the newly released tracks are believed to be inspired by the pair’s recent divorce.
While describing her target audience, Adele insisted that her music is meant for the “30 and 40-year olds,” specifically those who are currently in therapy. “That’s my vibe, because that’s what I do,” she said. “I’m more concerned with how this record can help those.”

While her new music has the potential to serve as anthems for other recent divorcees, the hitmaker also claimed that her songs have the power to save lives.
“I really think some of the songs on this album could really help people, realy change people’s lives,” she said. “And I think a song like ‘Hold On’ could actually save a few lives. I really, really do.”
After dropping the album’s lead single “Easy on Me” in October, the powerhouse Brit admitted to bawling her “eyes out,” while writing the heart wrenching song.
“I was at my wit’s end, you know, in the beginning of 2019,” she revealed during an interview on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show last month. “Hopefully [the song] will encourage people to acknowledge how they’re feeling which I feel like we are all encouraged not to do,” she said.
However, she made it clear in the Apple Music interview that her new songs aren’t intended for young fans, especially the TikTok demographic.
“If everyone makes music for TikTok, who makes music for my generation? “Who makes the music for my peers?,” she asked. “I like doing the job.”
