Canada’s #1 entertainment program is the first North American broadcast television network to gain access to the British superstar in advance of the release of her new album. ETALK airs weeknights at 7 p.m. ET on CTV, CTV.ca, and the CTV GO app, 7:30 p.m. ET on CTV Two and the CTV GO app, and 6:30 p.m. ET on E! (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).
“Adele is one of the biggest stars in the world right now! Fans have been waiting on the edge of their seats for the release of her new album and CTV’s ETALK is both thrilled and honoured to be the first in North America to deliver her fans and our viewers this exclusive one-on-one interview,” said Nanci MacLean, Vice-President, Bell Media Production.
In ETALK PRESENTS: ADELE LIVE IN LONDON, the British superstar opens up exclusively about the pressures of her new album, the excitement she is receiving from fans: her love of Drake, working with Canadian actor and filmmaker Xavier Dolan on the video for “Hello”, and being a mom, first and foremost:
Adele speaks about the excitement surrounding the release of her new album, 25:
“I honestly didn’t think people would be this excited. I thought maybe like a third of this reaction, so for it to be this big, it’s blowing my mind.”
Adele on her love for Drake and his new single “Hotline Bling”:
“I really want us to do an official remix. I love Drake. I love Drake so much…”
Adele opens up about her experience working with Canadian filmmaker and Wunderkind Xavier Dolan:
“We just got on really well. He makes me want to act – he’s very involved, Xavier, he was on the floor with me in that crying scene, he was on the floor with me totally getting into the same mood as me. I don’t know if anyone else can even bring out the confidence in me to attempt to act apart from him.”
Adele talks about making her new album:
“This was the hardest record I’ve made! The process was hard and the making it was hard as well – I’ve never had anything to balance before, it was only me before that mattered. And then obviously, I became a mom and all of my attention is on my kid.”
