UPDATE: Adele has continued to leak out details of the project, providing a release date (November 20) and album artwork (above) via Instagram. The album’s first single, “Hello,” will be released tomorrow, October 23. The single will come with a video.
In an open letter to her fans published on Twitter, Adele bemoaned a lifelong dissatisfaction with the present: “I’ve spent my whole life…wishing I was older, wishing I was somewhere else.”
There’s some music talk too: “My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record.” The singer married Simon Konecki in 2011 and had the couple had their first child in 2012.
She closes with an apology: “Sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.” Read the full letter and a potential tracklist (via NME) below.
