You were away for ages!

Were you nervous about bringing out new music?

I’m a bag of nerves all the time.

I was frightened no one would know it was me, and no one would care or want to hear it. The last time I released an album, Twitter and Instagram didn’t exist, so it was like the Jurassic ages.

You’ve got so many awards now – do you ever just sit down and think, Man, I’ve done good „ ? Every day. When I go for a poo and see all my awards, I think,

Wow, I did it good. That’s the truth. [Laughs.]

Do you write better songs when you’re broken-hearted?

I used to, but not so much [now]. There are songs on this record that I’m much prouder of than ones on my last or first record. There’s a couple of tracks on there that I think are the best songs I’ve ever written.

Which ones?

When We Were Youngand A Million Years Ago. There was a while where I thought maybe I won’t write another album, as I’m not going to be unhappy just for a record it’s not worth it.

Do you get much free stuff now? N ando’s do this card where you get free Nando’s, but I’ve never been offered one.

What? Maybe you’ll get one for Christmas. Finally, how do you avoid being papped?

I live a very ordinary life and I think most people are surprised by that. They don’t think it would be me when they spot me, so they don’t tweet about it or go, Adele was here. I don’t go to museums with my kids, with ten pairs of [eye]lashes and high heels on. I do get recognised, but by the time they realise it’s me, I’m up the road.

We herded them together like golden cattle to compile our annual Rich List. Brits under 30 made cash at a staggering rate, from CaraD’smodest£8millionto Dan-Rad’s frankly stonking £65million. Ellie Goulding made it on forthe first time, Sam Smith Spectre-d his way into our Top 20 andEdSheeran stormed the Top 10. But thetop spot wentto ID (again), worth £82million. And there are only four of them to share itbetweennow.
