19 is the debut studio album by the English singer-songwriter Adele Adkins, released on 28 January 2008 by XL Recordings. Following Adele’s graduation from the BRIT School in April 2006, she began publishing songs and recorded a three-song demo for a class project and gave it to a friend, who posted the demo on MySpace, where it became very successful and led to interest from the record label. This led to Adele signing a recording contract at age 17 with the label and providing vocals for Jack Peñate. During this session for Peñate’s song she met producer Jim Abbiss, who would go on to produce the majority of her debut album.

Four singles were released from the album, with “Chasing Pavements” and “Make You Feel My Love” reaching the top ten on the UK Singles Chart, while the former became Adele’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100. The album also contains her first song, “Hometown Glory“, written when she was 16, which is based on her home suburb of West Norwood in London.

Named after the age of the singer during its release and production, 19 is a blue-eyed soul album with folk rockindie pop, and jazz influences and lyrics describing heartbreak, nostalgia and relationships.19 received positive reviews from music critics, who praised Adele’s vocal prowess and songwriting talent at such a young age and noted her as having the “potential to become among the most respected and inspiring international artists of her generation.” 19 was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize. At the 51st Annual Grammy Awards, Adele won Best New Artist alongside Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Chasing Pavements“.

19 became a global success, reaching number one in the United Kingdom, while also reaching the top 10 in fifteen other countries, including the United States. The album has sold over 8.5 million copies worldwide and has also sold over 2.5 million copies in the UK to become one of the best-selling albums of the 21st century.
