Adele Announces ’25’, The Perfect Soundtrack For Your Fall Feelings
After a 3 year hiatus, Adele announced on Instagram her new album by posting a beautifully shot close up portrait simply captioned “25 out November 20th”. She had previously shared a personal note on Twitter, sharing troubles that we’ve all had, like wishing we’d grow up faster, but also wanting to stay young forever. She ends the note apologizing for taking so long because “life happened” and we are so glad the wait is finally over. According to the Fader, the album is 11 tracks long and includes collaborators like Sia and Pharrell. Adele calls 25 “a make-up record”, making up with herself, for lost time, everything she did or didn’t do, and if it’s anything like 19 or 21 we can expect 25 to be full of heart wrenching ballads. The first track released off the album is Hello, a breakup song accompanied by a music video directed by filmmaker Xavier Dolan. While the video features an antiquated flip phone, Adele sings about heartbreak in a way that is just as relevant as ever. If Hello is any indication of the rest of the record, 25 comes just in time for those moody fall nights. Watch the music video below, and make sure to pre-order the album!
