If you’ve been yearning for “Someone Like You” part II, Adele‘s new album might come as a bit of a surprise, though clearly fans would settle for her singing the phone book.
On Wednesday, the English singer, 27, addressed expectations for the follow-up to her massively successful 21 in an open letter posted to Facebook.
“My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record,” Adele wrote. “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.”
Later in the note, the vocalist shared the title for her new highly-anticipated record – keeping with the age theme, she’s calling it 25.
“Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties,” she explained. “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.”
Now a mom to Angelo James Konecki, 3, her son with Simon Konecki, Adele’s life has changed a lot since her last album dropped in 2011 – and the singer promises her new tunes will reflect that.
“25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising,” she wrote of the album.
Adele ended the stream of consciousness with an apology for the set s delay: “And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”
The release of a single might be imminent – rumor has it Adele teased a new song via British TV on Sunday, making the Internet go wild.
