Adele announces the release date of her upcoming album, “30”
Adele : the art of teasing
Adele knows how to tease an album ! The singer, who has been very quiet for years, has recently erased entirely the content of her website, leaving only a blue background. At the same time, billboards were appearing all over the world, with a very similar background. Only one thing was written on them : 30, in golden numbers. Famous monuments, such as the Colosseum in Rome, and Edinburgh Castle, also received the same treatment, with the number being projected on them.
Adele Fans were quick to connect the dots, and theorize that this was the announcement for their favourite singer’s new album ! Indeed, we have been waiting for it for over two years. The upcoming effort has been delayed mostly because of the pandemic. Four days ago, the singer teased her upcoming single, Easy on me, yet to be released. And here we are, right now, with a new announcement !
Adele’s “30” : what we know so far
Adele finally broke her silence ! On October 13th at 3 PM, the singer officially announced the release of 30, with what could be the cover art, and a lengthy statement :
“ I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually (...) I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way (...) 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”
You can find the whole statement in the Tweet listed right above. Adele’s fourth album, 30, will be released on November 19th 2021, 6 years after her previous effort, titled 25. As for the content of the record, it is still a mystery… Be sure that Alex will keep you updated as soon as possible !
