British singer-songwriter Adele announced Wednesday on social media the release date for her much anticipated new album.
The singer confirmed that her new album is called “30,” and teasing the title of her forthcoming album on several billboards bearing the number “30” on October 1.
She added that the album will debut on November 19.
“I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly — willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!” she wrote.
Adele added: “I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go as far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.”
She signed off with, “Home is where the heart is x.”

Adele will release the first single off the album, “Easy On Me,” on Friday.
The enigmatic English pop superstar, whose last album, 25, sold 22 million copies worldwide and earned two Grammy Awards, released her debut album 19 in 2008, followed by 21 in 2011 and 25 in 2015, which each spawned massive tours.
The release date for ’30’ is the same as the previous date for Taylor Swift’s ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’. However, Swift announced last month that she was moving the release forward a week to November 12.
Speaking about her new album in a recent interview, Adele stated that it was more personal to her than any of her previous records.
“It is sensitive for me, this record, just in how much I love it. I always say that ’21’ doesn’t belong to me anymore. Everyone else took it into their hearts so much. I am not letting go of this one. This is my album. I want to share myself with everyone, but I don’t think I’ll ever let this one go.” she added.
