New mother Adele answered a few questions backstage at the Grammy Awards.

You’re very private about the baby, but can you talk about balancing being a wonderful artist with being a mother now?
I’ve been up since 6 a.m., so I’m quite tired. It’s nice, I haven’t been as stressed out. You have to prioritize what you get stressed about when you have a child. I’ve been getting my mind around it. Normally I love getting my hair and make-up done, but this time I was like, 'Get off, get off!'

Can you say anything about the next album?
I’m not very far along at all. I’m having lots of meetings. I’ve been in L.A. the whole time since the Globes and I’ll be here till the Oscars. So I’m having lots of meetings, but I’ve been out of the loop, really. I’ve just been singing my baby nursery rhymes, so I don’t really know what’s cool and what’s not. I’m definitely going to visit with Paul Epworth and talk about doing that again.

How do you feel about performing at the Oscars?
I’ll be shitting myself!

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
