On the day ’25’ is released – that’s tomorrow, Friday 20 November, for anyone back from a very long camping holiday in the wilderness – the BBC will broadcast a hour-long Adele special, featuring live performances from the singer and a conversation with Graham Norton.
Though she’s sung the album’s first single ‘Hello’ publically a few times now, the pre-recorded TV special sees her first ever performance of the song. In previously released clips from the show, Adele is seen admitting that her management has restricted her access to her own Twitter account after she “nearly put my foot in it quite a few times” while “drunk tweeting”.
When asked about rumours that she’s been barred from Twitter, Adele said: “This is true. I’m not a drinker any more but when Twitter first came out I was drunk tweeting and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times.”
She continued: “My management decided they needed to go through two people and then it all has to be signed off by someone. They’re all my tweets, no-one writes my tweets, they just write them [out] for me,” the singer added. “So yeah, that’s very, very true.”
