“In order for me to feel confident with one of my songs it has to really move me. That’s how I know that I’ve written a good song for myself – it’s when I start crying. It’s when I break out in tears in the vocal booth or in the studio, and I’ll need a moment to myself.
“You have to write about real life because otherwise how can you be relatable?”
—Adele (in an interview with New York Times)
