Adele’s Album Is Coming — Here’s Everything We Know About It
20 October 2015
It’s been nearly five years since Adele’s Grammy Award-winning second album, 21, and ever since then, we’ve been asking the question: When we will finally get new music? Well, it seems the time may have come. The British songstress, who hasn’t released a single since the 2012 James Bond theme song, “Skyfall,” may have teased us with a snippet of a track that may or may not be titled “Hello.” With so many questions surrounding Adele’s upcoming new music, we’ve compiled everything we know about the album, which could be here much sooner than you think. Here are 8 things you need to know about Adele’s super-secret new album. 1. Hello, It's Me
Over the weekend, this teaser popped up on the UK version of “The X Factor.” It’s a slow ballad about Adele wanting to meet up with someone that she hasn’t seen in awhile. She asks the question, ““I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet?” Well, yes, Adele, we would like to meet you again. 2. 25
Adele’s third album is slated to be called 25, which she all but revealed on her 26th birthday when she said she would see 25 “later in the year.” 3.It’s Coming Very Soon
There are all these rumors going around that Adele’s album will be dropping in November…which is TWO weeks away! So after years and years of waiting, we only have a few more weeks to go. 4. She's Teamed Up With The Biggest Hit Makers
Adele is making sure she has nothing but the best for her next album, teaming up with Danger Mouse, Max Martin and Canadian singer/songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. According to Billboard, she also has been working with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who tweeted out “Adele” shortly before the teaser dropped on Sunday. The songwriter and lead singer, produced and co-wrote her 21 hit, “Rumour Has It.” 5. She Teamed Up With Pharrell…20 Minutes At A Time

Adele hooked up with Pharrell for her album, but as he revealed earlier this year, she really took her time crafting these songs because she was also working really hard at being a mom for her son, Angelo. “She’s kinda like, ‘OK, guys, I’m gonna open my diary for 20 minutes.’ So it’s like, OK, you have 20 minutes, or 32 minutes really,” he said. “Then she gives it to you and closes it up and disappears, and she’s off with her beautiful boy — and that’s what it’s all about. She is a masterful writer,” he gushed. “You listen to her albums and the intention is living and breathes.” 6. Adele’s Going Country?
At least according to Kelly Clarkson she is. Back in March, Kelly was praising her fellow female pop stars for experimenting with new sounds, highlighting Adele saying that she heard she is “doing something more country-influenced with this next record.” 7. Duet With Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga and Adele are both due for some new music soon, so how about they do it together? Earlier this year they had a “bro-down” together, which makes us think they sat around sipping tea, gossiping and writing music that will literally bring us to tears. 8. Ed Sheeran Heard It’s ’Really Good’
While we don’t know if Ed lent his writing talent to Adele’s album, he did say that his friends have heard the album, and not only were they “really complimentary,” but they said it’s “really good.” I’ll take your word for it, Ed!
