Adele Confirms that her New Album will be Called 25
After months of speculation Adele has finally confirmed that her new album will indeed be called 25.
The singer took to Twitter to announce the news on Wednesday morning, revealing in a lengthy, heartfelt open letter just what fans could expect from her new music.
‘My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record,’ she explained in the post.
‘I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did.’
She also described turning 25 as a ‘turning point’ and finally gave away the album title when she concluded: ’25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long but, you know, life happened.
The announcement comes just days after Adele surprised her fans by teasing a snippet of her new music during an X Factor ad break.
The brief interlude consisted of lyrics appearing on a black screen, with Adele’s unmistakeable voice singing the verse as it appeared.
It is the first new material we’ve heard from Adele since her Oscar-winning 2012 Bond theme Skyfall, with the singer taking a lengthy hiatus after giving birth to her son Angelo – her first child with partner Simon Konecki – in October 2012.
25 will be the follow-up to Adele’s critically acclaimed 21, which was released in 2011 and is the biggest selling album of the decade in the UK – having shifted almost five million copies to date.
Although no release date has yet been confirmed for 25, rumour has it (to take a cue from the lady herself) that it’ll make its debut on November 20
