Adele thinks she has "saved" Bob Dylan.

The British singer and songwriter says the legendary 'Blowin' in The Wind' musician will profit hugely from her cover of his track 'Make You Feel My Love', and although some people don't like it, she got the seal of approval from the man himself.

She told The Sun newspaper: "It is his second favourite version, after his own. Someone told me the other day that I had killed Bob Dylan with 'Make You Feel My Love'. I actually think I've saved him.

"He's going to get about £1 million out of that song. He's going to get a big pay cheque at the end of the year. I reckon with the amount it's been played on the radio it's worth a lot to him.

"Maybe he'll buy me watch or something."

The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer, 22, also revealed how she got turned on to blues music - which has heavily influenced her new record '21' - by her US tour bus driver.

She added: "I was a bit worried about going down the blues route. I only got exposed to blues and country music when I was in America because of my bus driver.

"He used to radio to all the other bus drivers, 'Can you pick all your favourite country and blues songs and send them to me?'

"I've got thousands and thousands of them, all sorts, Wanda Jackson, Garth Brooks, early Johnny Cash, early Dolly Parton then the Carter Family."

Adele's '21' is released on January 24.
