Earlier this month, Adele took to social media to announce that her first single since 2015, “Easy On Me,” would be out on October 15. This also created speculation about the singer also possibly releasing her first album, since 2015’s “25.” Now, this is in fact, the case.
This morning, Adele took to social media, to reveal that her fourth studio album, “30,” will be available on November 19. She also wrote a lengthy open letter to her fans, and detailed her journey, since starting to work on this album, in 2018. Adele also emphasized how she’s found her “feeling” again.
“I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started [this album] nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have,” wrote Adele. “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 as 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.”
When Adele released 25, it was one of the biggest albums of the 2010s, along with her “21.” 25 debuted at number one, on the Billboard 200 chart, and was led by hit singles such as “Hello” and “When We Were Young.” It is also 10x platinum, in the US.
