Adele has opened up about the torment of missing her son in raw new song about hating herself in a sit-down chat with Oprah Winfrey.

The Hello crooner revealed the meaning behind the vulnerable track Hold On in an interview with Oprah after the chat show host read back the lyrics of the heart-wrenching song, including the raw line: “Right now I truly hate being me.”

Adele, 33, confessed that it was inspired by conversations she had with her friends at the lowest points of her life.

The songstress told the star interviewer that she had been struggling with her divorce from Simon Konecki, who she shares nine-year-old son Angelo with.

On the US TV special Adele: One Night Only, she spoke about how her friends inspired the song, saying: “My friends always would say, ‘Hold on’ when I would feel like the lyrics in the verse.

“But it was just exhausting trying to keep going with it. It’s a process. You know, the process of a divorce, the process of being a single parent.

“The process of not seeing your child every single day wasn’t really a plan that I had when I became a mum.

“The process of arriving for yourself every day, turning up for yourself every single day and still running a home, running a business.”

She elaborated that her feet hurt from “walking through all of that concrete”.

Although she has split from Simon Konecki, 47, Adele has managed to find romance again with 39-year-old boyfriend Rich Paul.

Adele met her current beau at a friend’s party where they danced to a Drake song on dance floor.

The pair went Instagram official earlier this year with a sweet black and white photo from a party photo booth.

The two-hour special, which features an open-air gig in LA, airs on CBS tonight.

It has not been confirmed when Adele: One Night Only will be available in the UK but fans are optimistic that it will follow suit to the bombshell interview between Oprah and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex earlier this year.

The tell-all interview was made available to watch in the UK the following day from its US release.
