Earlier this week, Adele published an open letter to fans in which she apologised for making fans wait to hear it.
In the letter Adele wrote about how she always wanted to be older when she was growing up and her regrets over not enjoying her life in the moment. Talking about her new music, Adele writes: “My last record [’21’] 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 myelf. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did.”
Later in the letter Adele added: “’25’ is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”
Adele announced her return in an anonymous advert which aired during The X Factor in Britain on October 18.
Viewers of the ITV show saw a thirty-second clip of Adele’s voice with the lyrics to the song flashing up in black and white on the screen.
Watch the advert below:
The new material also includes a song written by Tobias Jesso Jr, and there are rumoured be appearances from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, producer Danger Mouse and pop writer-producer Max Martin, who’s best known for his work with ’90s pop acts N’Sync, Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys.
Earlier this year, producer Emile Haynie revealed he met with Adele in February to discuss potentially working together, but that the singer was “taking her time” over a new album. “We got along well as friends when we met in February and I hope we can cut some songs, but Adele is taking her time,” he said. “I’d push for it to happen, but we’ll have to wait and see.”
