Adele is back and tears up as her new single is played for the first time

It’s been almost 5 years since Adele released ’21’, the best selling album of the 21st century and the fourth best selling of all time.

After the roaring success of her second album, she stepped out of the spotlight to focus on life with her partner Simon Konecki and her baby son Angelo, who was born in October 2012.

Since then, we’ve been eagerly awaiting new music from the singer, and when an advert teasing her new album hit our screens during X-Factor, it’s safe to say we were excited.

On twitter, she issued a statement to her fans.

The first single – simply named ‘Hello’ – was aired on Friday morning on the BBC Radio 1 breakfast show.

When she first arrived at the studio, she told Nick Grimshaw “I feel so sick. I’m so nervous.”

No need to be nervous Adele, it looks as if your fans and fellow celebrities LOVED it, and they had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

Describing the track, she said “It’s not just about relationships with my exes, it’s friendships as well. I’m so fond of every part of my life, good and bad, because it’s made me who I am.

I was singing to everyone I loved. I needed them to hear it.”

Relieved that the new album is finally ready, and said “I thought it was never going to happen. I would do stuff and my team would say, “it’s not good enough, go back to the drawing board.”‘ It’s been a long time coming.

My favourite song from the album is When We Were Young, so I can’t wait for people to hear that.”

Adele’s third studio album ’25’ will be available from 20th November 2015
