Adele has blessed us all with the news that her fourth studio album, 30, will be released in November.
The Hello singer is preparing to make her anticipated comeback this Friday with her new single Easy On Me.
She’s now confirmed that her next album will arrive on November 19.
The 33-year-old shared the stunning album artwork – a side profile of herself – and explained in the caption: ‘I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly three years ago… And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!
‘I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go so far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.
‘And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out.’
Detailing the personal experience she went through while recording the album, Adele went on to describe it as her ‘ride or die’ during ‘the most turbulent period of my life’.
The Grammy-winning singer revealed: ‘When I was writing it, it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up. My wise friend who always gives the best advice. Not to forget the one who’s wild and says “It’s your Saturn rising babes f**k it, you only live once”.
‘The friend who’d stay up all night and just hold my hand while I’d sob relentlessly and take me somewhere I said I didn’t want to go but just wanted to get me out the house for some vitamin D.
‘That friend who snuck in and left a magazine with a face mask and some bath salts to make me feel loved while inadvertently reminding me not only what month it actually was but that I should probably exercise some self-care!’
‘And then that friend who no matter what, checked in on me even though I’d stopped checking in with them because I’d become so consumed by my own grief. I’ve painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it.
‘Home is where the heart is x.’
Adele recently revealed that her new album was inspired by her divorce from husband Simon Konecki. It wasn’t originally intended to be a break-up album, but she realised she was writing songs to explain the split to their nine-year-old son Angelo.
In her interview with Vogue US and UK, the Rolling In The Deep singer explained: ‘I wanted to put it on the album to show Angelo what I expect him to treat his partner like, whether it be a woman or a man or whatever.’
Opening up about the divorce, she added: ‘It just wasn’t… It just wasn’t right for me anymore.
‘I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. I wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first.
‘But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that.’
Adele released her last album, 25, in 2016 and went on to embark on a 128-date worldwide tour. Industry experts are now predicting that she could rake in up to £600million from her next tour due to high demand.
