Adele is back with her first single in three years. “Hello,” a soaring new ballad that offers the first taste of the British singer’s highly anticipated third album, 25, debuted in the early hours of Oct. 23.
The wait will officially come to an end Nov. 20 when Adele’s album 25 arrives. Adele announced the big news on Wednesday, Oct. 21, just days after publishing a Twitter letter in which she told her fans, “I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.” The singer has described 25 as a “make-up record,” more adult in theme and tone.
