The superstar admitted the “grief” inspired her new album 30 as she detailed exactly what it meant to her being able to write it during such a hard time in her life.

In the moving post, the Londoner said: “I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually.

“I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil.

“I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed  many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones.

“Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with and I feel like I’ve finally found my  feeling again. I’d go as far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.”

The mum-of-one continued, explaining how the album became a friend to her:  “And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out.

 “It was my ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life. When  was writing it, it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up.”

She went on to list the type of pal the album was to her, before concluding that it was “that friend who no matter what, checked in on me even though I’d  stopped checking in with them because I’d become so consumed by my own  grief. “

She finished: “I’ve painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this  album narrates it.  Home is where the heart is x”

The singer, who is now dating Rich Paul, previously revealed the impact the divorce had on her son Angelo and said she hoped the album would be a relationship guide for him.

Adele and Simon began dating in 2011 and had their son in 2012.

She was incorrectly reported to have married him in 2016 after she called him “my husband” at the Grammy Awards in 2017.
