Could it be true? Is the longest wait of our lives over? Four years after the legendary ’21,’ Adele is finally releasing a new album, much to the excitement of pretty much everyone in the entire world. Welcome back, Adele!
It’s been long speculated that Adele, 27, would be dropping a new album sometime soon, ending the four-year wait since her gorgeous album 21. Adele blessedly confirmed the amazing news on October 21 in a lengthy post on Twitter. Go Adele!
This is the most exciting news we’ve heard in a long time! In a beautifully emotional message posted to Twitter, Adele poured her heart out to fans about the reasons why she took a hiatus, and a little bit about what we should expect from her new album.
“My last album was a break-up record, and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record,” Adele wrote. “I making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did.”
That’s so inspirational. It seems like we’re going to still hear the same, deeply emotional and breathtaking music from Adele that we know and love, but it’s just going to have a different theme. We can work with that!
“But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs on my past like I used to,” Adele continued. “What’s done is done. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.” Nothing could be truer; since her last album, Adele got married to Simon Konecki and had her first child, Angelo, 3! That definitely is a turning point in life, and it’s totally understandable that her priorities shifted for awhile. What a happy time in her life!
We can’t help being a little selfish and loving that she’s back. It’s rumored that she’s already booked a ton of TV appearances to show off the new music, including Saturday Night Live and a performance on TODAY! She’ll probably visit an NBC late night show, too. The Tonight Show? Late Night? We can’t wait to find out!
