Adele Covers The Strokes...Album Out This Week

An album I've been hearing bits and pieces of, and loving, is 19 from Adele, which comes out later this week on XL Recordings.

Winner of the first Brit Awards "Critics’ Choice" prize last month, Adele appeared this past week on BBC One's Live Lounge with Jo Whiley, and was both charming and fun, and seemingly not yet affected by the hype machine that is churning all around her these days. And what an amzing voice...

Fun fact learned on the show:

Although from Tottenham, Adele supports Chelsea FC. Hmmm.

Another fact she spilled was that her favorite live band is The Strokes, and she thinks their drummer "is buff".

Here's a pretty great cover from that appearance:
