Adele has announced that her highly anticipated new album, ‘30’, is coming out on November 19.

The British singer who has been on a six year music hiatus, last week shared the news that the album’s first single ‘Easy On Me’ will be released on October 15.

In a new post shared to her social media, she has now finally confirmed the album’s arrival date.

She said of her fourth album: “I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started [the album] 3 years ago. Quite the opposite really.”

She added: I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and 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.”

News of the multi Grammy award winning artist’s return brought mass excitement and delight among fans when she updated her social media last week.

Billboards with the number ‘30’ on them also appeared in cities such as Dublin, London, Rome, Paris and New York.

She continued in her post: “It was my ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life. When I was writing it, it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up.”

The record’s title follows Adele’s previous pattern of naming her albums after the age she was at the start of recording. Her debut album ’19’ arrived in 2008, followed by 2011’s ’21’ and 2015’s ’25’.

Adele recently shared in her cover interview with Vogue that she hopes the album will help her explain her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki to their nine-year-old son.

Describing the split, she said: “My son has had a lot of questions. Really good questions, really innocent questions, that I just don’t have an answer for.”

She finished her post: “I’ve painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it. Home is where the heart it x”

The first clip from the forthcoming track, ‘Easy On Me’, was released last week (October 5). 

In the teaser clip shared across social media, a gentle piano track plays as she is seen putting a cassette into a car stereo, elegantly flowing her hands outside the window on an empty road.
