London: Singer Adele is leaving her hometown London because she fears the pollution could ruin her vocals.
The Grammy award-winning star shot to fame proudly singing about her Hometown Glory but is set to quit the capital on doctors' orders, as reported.
She is now house-hunting in the countryside after she was warned the city's air could hinder her recovery from a throat condition.
The singer sang of her love of London in her first hit in 2007, including the words, "I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque."
Adele, whose other chart successes include 'Chasing Pavements' and 'Someone Like You', had throat surgery for a haemorrhaged vocal cord last month.
The operation was performed in Massachusetts by the same US doctor who treated Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.
