Adele is indeed back.
The “Rolling in the Deep” singer revealed that the follow-up to her smash hit album “21” is finally coming.
“My last record was a break-up record, and if I had to label this one, I’d call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself.”
Adele’s previous album “21” was released in 2011 and it was a huge hit. Time magazine noted that “21” produced three Billboard No. 1 singles and sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone. The album also won six Grammy awards in 2012, including album of the year and song of the year for “Rolling in the Deep,” CNN wrote.
The British singer hinted what fans could expect on “25.” She wrote, “25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realizing.” Adele started recording the album at the age of 25.
She also mentioned how age has made an impact on her. “Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully fledged adult,” the singer wrote.
Adele also apologized for the long delay in releasing “25.” “I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened,” she enthused.
She had kept a low profile for a while and also gave birth to a son with businessman Simon Konecki in 2012.
On Sunday, Adele offered a taste of her new album with a teaser shown during the U.K. edition of “X-Factor.”
Adele has yet to drop the date for the album release, but it is expected to hit record stores sometime this November.
According to Time, the people who have worked on the album include Max Martin, Tobias Jesso Jr., Danger Mouse, and Sia.
Meanwhile, RollingStone reported that BBC Radio 1 will premiere Adele’s first single on October 30. However, it remains unclear which track of “25” will be the debut single.
