Adele reveals new music in a 30 second advert

It’s hard to believe that Adele’s last album came out over 4 years ago, especially since you can still barely go a week without hearing Someone Like You or Rolling in the Deep on a TV show, on the radio or in a restaurant (honestly, what is it with restaurants and Adele?).

Fortunately for those of us who know 21 back to front despite not buying it (and those of us who did buy it, obviously), Adele is planning to release new music very soon and has given fans a taste of what to expect in a 30 second promo during The X Factor.

In the ad, Adele’s new track plays over a black background, while the lyrics appear in stark white text over the top. It’s a bit like being at the world’s moodiest karaoke bar.

The lyrics suggest that Adele is still hung up on broken relationships, so there’s no risk of the new album taking a happy hardcore direction…


It’s me

I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet

To go over everything

They say time’s supposed to heal you

But I ain’t done much healing

Crikey, someone get that girl a cup of tea or something.

The new album, 25, is set to be released next month and has some serious expectations to live up to; 21 is the 4th best selling album of all time in the UK, shifting well over 4 million copies. It also sold over 11 million copies in the US, making it the 10th best selling album since records began in 1991.
