Adele Enlists All-Star Producer Line-Up For ’25’ [Including Bruno Mars]

Published: Friday 23rd Oct 2015 by Sam

Pop powerhouse Adele has assembled a super-charged line-up of producers and songwriters to craft her third album ’25.’

Credits have been revealed for the hotly anticipated set and feature many a notable name – and a few surprising ones too.

Indeed, while ’21’ staples Paul Epworth and Ryan Tedder return, they are this time joined by the likes of mainstream maestro Max Martin and Bruno Mars.

Find out who’s helped the the Brit sensation mould her new music below…

’25’ Album Credits

1. “Hello” – Adele Adkins & Greg Kurstin
2. “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” – Adele Adkins, Max Martin & Karl Johan Schuster (Shellback)
3. “I Miss You” – Adele Adkins & Paul Epworth
4. “When We Were Young” – Adele Adkins & Tobias Jesso Jr.
5. “Remedy” – Adele Adkins & Ryan Tedder
6. “Water Under the Bridge” – Adele Adkins & Greg Kurstin
7. “River Lea” – Adele Adkins & Brian Burton (Danger Mouse)
8. “Love in the Dark” – Adele Adkins & Samuel Dixon 
9. “Million Years Ago” – Adele Adkins & Greg Kurstin
10. “All I Ask” – Adele Adkins, Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence & Christopher “Brody” Brown (The Smeezingtons)
11. “Sweetest Devotion” – Adele Adkins & Paul Epworth



A very eclectic list; one which – on paper at least- re-affirms Adele’s promise to not rehash.

Though excited for the album as a body of work, we’re especially keen to hear what Max Martin + Bruno Mars’ Smeezingtons have cooked up. They’re easily the most “left” of the names listed.

’25’ arrives on November 20th.

    Call me a hater but this adele lbum is soo blah… How many times are we gonna hear the same tired piano melodies, and long sustain notes. yes she has a great vocal but the artists is just a re-packed and branded version of the last 2 cds she has released. to me she has shown no growth as an artists

    • Facts4U October 23, 2015

      Yeah. You should have stopped at calling yourself a hater. Hello is a beautifully written and produced pop power ballad.

    • jojo October 23, 2015

      Its not for you…

    • Regina George “BIH Where?” October 23, 2015

      Call you a hater?… Ok… I’ll oblige that request this morning… You a hater

    • Hello October 23, 2015

      Hello is #1 on itunes in over 50 countries already… you are a pressed queen… when will ANY of your favs?

    “19” = 10+ Million Records Sold WW.

    “21” = 31+ Million Records Sold WW.

    Regardless if ’25’ sells similar numbers to ’21’, the former will always keep her legacy intact.

    Nonetheless, I personally feel that this album is going to be a BONAFIDE BLOCKBUSTER also.

    ‘Hello’ will arrive at the top of the Hot 100 in a few weeks, if it doesn’t debut at #1 there, and most certainly the UK and majority of the European countries charts as well as across the world. ’25’ will debut at number one on the BB200 for stay there for multiple weeks at a time.

    The best selling album of 2015, or perhaps second best selling album if 2015 behind T.S, will be ’25’. FACTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OK its official, she’s trying to snatch Rihanna’s head off ha shoulders! Shiit seems personal!! Poor ANTI-Bacterial

    • MinkDraggingTheFloor October 23, 2015

      Sorry sis but she’s scalping your fav too while being fully dressed and sitting on a stool

      • kiiiii October 23, 2015


      • Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

        Honey u can add your fave to that list too. The only thing is my fave didn’t just release an album cover hinting at a November release. She has nothing to worry about as she’s survived dozens of for-the-moment pop stars. That legacy is cemented biitch!

    • MinkDraggingTheFloor October 23, 2015

      Most of my favs would be considered “flops” on here so idc sissy. I’m just saying you can’t talk When Adele scalped the f*** out of Beyonce with one album.

      • Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

        Biitch again, My fave hasn’t released a billion singles this year, to only reveal an album cover that didn’t get half the buzz as Adele’s promo campaign. You seem to be offended by the facts in my comment. Maybe that’s why your bird as is hiding behind a troll name. Lmao

      • MinkDraggingTheFloor October 23, 2015

        im not hiding and I’m not a Rihanna stan.???????????? That b**** is lost artistically duh even Stevie wonder can see that. Adele has sold 42+ million albums with just two releases by using nothing but her voice. Beyonce can’t even Get her “soulful” non twerking songs to chart lol! It’s just ironic that you’re using her to drag Rihanna when Adele left your fav with alopecia.

      • Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

        Lmfao Oh girl! You don’t get it do you?? Adele slays EVERYONE! I know that! Beyonce is still QUEEN. I know it, you know it, and Adele knows it too!!???????????? My entire point was that Rihanna is preparing to release, hence the album cover unveiling. DUH! Adele is coming! She might have to release her album before Nov. 20th if she wants another #1 album. My fave is recording/performing????! If you’re not a fan of Rihanna’s, I don’t even know why my comment bothered you. Oh well???????? #unbothered

    Welcome back Adele. I’m looking forward to this album. You shall get my money once again!

  6. shakira stan October 23, 2015

    Ummm is it me or is hello kinda flopping?

    • kiiiii October 23, 2015

      Girl sit down
      it just got released plus the Americans are not fully awake just wait and see

      • shakira stan October 23, 2015

        You must be one of those jobless hoodrats if you are still asleep by 7am.

    • Regina George “BIH Where?” October 23, 2015

      It’s just you… Bish

  7. DEL BEY October 23, 2015

    I wasn’t expecting ‘Sorry’ to snatch me like that! The song is amazing and she looks absolutely radiant in the video. Adele is from the ghetto (just 20 minutes from where I live) she definitely had a black beau or two in her time in the ghetto, believe me, Adele is a common girl

    • Benjamin October 23, 2015

      I love the fact that she used a black guy for her video, black men are gorgeous.

  8. blue October 23, 2015

    explain to me how it is that adele has the navy and hive at each other’s throats more so than usual? Like how is it that the two fanbases of the only two huge black female pop stars left, is tearing at each other because another white girl is about to outsell their favs??????? Like and

    • Regina George “BIH Where?” October 23, 2015

      That’s because these Stans are petty as hell… Adele will snatch both of their asses and the Stans just wanna argue about who’s gonna get snatched the hardest.. Doesn’t matter… Adele is obviously here now so BOTH groups need to stfu and deal…

      • blue October 23, 2015

        i know, as much as it pains me as a navy member that R8 wont go to No.1 or that we might have to wait a little longer, it pains more that even though rihanna and beyonce are thee biggest female popstars in the ww that they would never see the sales that taylor and adele do without much effort.

      • toohotfortv October 23, 2015

        And that, my dear, is what we call privilege… the thing is, I will concede to the thought that taylor and adele make music (at this point) that is farther reaching, in regards to demographics but, I absolutely believe there are black artist out there who are not even given the chance to bridge that gap. Its unfortunate. You can’t be mad at adele though. She seems very authentic.

      • Regina George “BIH Where?” October 23, 2015

        Definitely agree… Adele will definitely slay but I still have to wonder why Jazmine is so underrated….

    • red wine October 23, 2015

      because they are stupid

  9. LB October 23, 2015
