"30th" coming this year: Adele announces album

It was only a matter of time. The sparrows were already whistling from the rooftops that Adele would soon release a new album. Now it’s fixed. The British artist’s fourth studio work will be released on November 19th – and has a title befitting her class.

The British singer Adele has announced her new album “30”, which has been expected for years, for mid-November. “November 30th – 19th,” wrote the superstar on social networks. The first single “Easy On Me” will be released this Friday.

“I found out many bitter truths about myself in this way. I shed many layers, but also wrapped myself in new ones,” said a statement published at the same time. “And so I’m ready to finally get this album out.”

The title “30” had been expected since the number had recently been projected around the world in a typical Adele design on major landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower. The Briton has always named her first three albums after the year she started working on them: “19”, “21” and “25”.

“The most turbulent time of my life”

Adele has sold well over 100 million records to date. She received an Oscar for the title song of the James Bond film “Skyfall”, and the Briton has also received several Grammy awards.

Just recently, Adele had given the British and US editions of “Vogue” extensive interviews in which she also talked about her private life. “When I was 30, my life fell apart without warning,” she was saying. At that time, shortly after the wedding, she separated from her husband Simon Konecki, who is the father of her son Angelo. It was the “most turbulent time of my life”, she now writes.

In the meantime, Adele is again in a relationship. The new man by her side is sports agent Rich Paul. “He’s great. He’s so funny. He’s so smart,” enthused the now 33-year-old in Vogue. All of these experiences should flow into their new album.
