Adele announces 25 album and releases Hello single
UK pop singing sensation Adele will release her long-awaited third album, “25”, on November 20.
Produced by Greg Kurstin, the follow-up to 2011’s smash “21” is being previewed with the lead single, “Hello.”
“My last record was a break-up record,” says Adele, “and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done.
“Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully-fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk. I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back.”
“25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realizing,” she adds, “And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”
The life that happened includes Adele’s son, Angelo, who was born in 2012 to the singer and her boyfriend Simon Konecki. That same year, the singer also issued the title track to the James Bond film, “Skyfall.”
Adele has returned with a bang, as the video for “Hello” has already been viewed more than 63 million times in its first three days online, while the single is destined for a US No. 1 debut based on opened weekend sales.
