Diane Warren (born September 7, 1956), is an American songwriter. Her songs have received six Academy Award nominations, five Golden Globe nominations, including one win, and seven Grammy Award nominations, including one win. She was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2001. Her success in the US has been paralleled in the UK, where she has been rated the third most successful female artist. Her songs have been featured in more than 70 films or television shows.[1]

Warren worked with Adele on her third studio album, 25.[2] However, the songs they worked on together did not make the final cut of the album. In an interview with HitFix, Warren talked about her work with Adele:

It was just great. I don’t really write with people and we spent a lot of time together and really clicked and really connected and I really like her as a person. I’m really excited about the stuff we did.[3]

The tracks Adele and Warren worked on were recorded at RAK Studios in northwest London, with most of them being written and completed by early 2014.[4][5][6] Despite this, Warren mentioned the possibility of some of the songs appearing on future material, telling Entertainment Weekly, "I did some songs with Adele that she still loves. Hopefully they'll find their way onto her next album. We did some songs early in the process for 25. But I ran into her and she was like, 'I still love those songs. I still want them. Don’t give them away.' And they’re really good songs. Two, I think, are great."[7]
