In a note to her fans singer-songwriter Adele announced that her new album is due to come out Nov. 20, and will be titled “25”. It stands for the age she was when she wrote this album. Her last album titled “21” (guess how old she was when she wrote that one) sold more than 10 million copies in the USA and was responsible for three #1 hit singles on the Billboard music charts.
Adele has also announced that this album will have a much different tone than the last one, here is what she had to say about it:
“My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record…I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did… 25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realizing it”
To celebrate this fantastic artist’s return to the spotlight we’re publishing 5 things you didn’t know about Adele:
1. Adele was a raging alcoholic
In 2008 Adele cancelled an entire US concert tour just to hang out and get drunk with her now ex-boyfriend. She admitted so by saying:
“I was drinking far too much and that was kind of the basis of my relationship with this boy. I couldn’t bear to be without him, so I was like, ‘Well, OK, I’ll just cancel my stuff then,”
Since then Adele has quit drinking.
