Adele Shows Off New Look While Thanking Fans for Birthday Messages






Adele has stayed away from the spotlight in recent years, though she revealed while performing at her best friend’s wedding back in February that new music would be on the way, telling partygoers to "expect my album in September."

The British songstress hasn’t released music since 2015’s 25, which featured singles like “Hello” and “Send My Love (To Your New Lover).” That album, her third studio release, earned her five Grammys in 2017, including album of the year.

As for her tranformation, PEOPLE previously reported the singer told a fan earlier this year that she had lost 100 lbs.

Another source told PEOPLE that the musician has been following a strict diet and fitness routine consisting of cross-training and full-body Pilates, but that it was not all about the physical change for Adele, who shares 7-year-old son Angelo with ex-husband Simon Konecki.

"It’s easy to just focus on her physical transformation, but this is really about something bigger," the insider said. "She got to the point where she didn’t feel great. She knew she had to change something because she wants to be the healthiest mom possible."

“Her whole focus during the weight loss journey has really how been all about how she can be healthier and how can she treat her body better," the source added. “It was never about losing weight. Her weight loss happened because she has cut down drinking and is eating more real food. But she now loves her physical transformation too. She is more confident, dresses differently and she just seems happier overall."
