Adding to the quality content, here’s the absolutely wonderful Adele doing three songs in an intimate, stripped-down set. Her new album, 21, drops on the 22nd and you can hear it in its entirety from NPR here. I don’t quite know where her voice comes from but it’s hard not to be blown away by the virtuosity of this young woman, not to mention her outright maturity.
She won Best New Artist a couple of years ago,(further proving that sometimes the Grammy’s do something right), and is on track to becoming a proper success in her own right. God knows the Top 40 could use her classiness and gimmick-less approach to music.
