Adele's first demo was a demo recorded for a school project while she attended the BRIT School that she later gave to XL Recordings when they became interested in signing her for a record deal. The demo included three songs that were all included on her first studio album once she was signed by XL, "Daydreamer," two different versions of "My Same," and "Hometown Glory." Although she originally intended to release the demo as her first release, XL stated that they did not want her first release to be an EP, prompting her to begin work on her debut album, 19. All three of the songs for the demo made the final cut, and "Hometown Glory" went on to be released as her first official single.
The demos for "My Same" and "Daydreamer" have since made it onto the Internet. It has also been confirmed that the demo consisted of four tracks, as there were two versions of "My Same" included (the original demo as well as an alternate jazz version).
