Adele’s ’30’ Album Is Arriving On November 19
In addition to Adele’s “Easy On Me” single finally being released, her fourth studio album is also on the way. This is “30,” which will be her first album since 2015, as well. On Wednesday, Adele made the initial announcement regarding 30, and also wrote an open letter to her fans, detailing the process of creating this album, and he emotional state she’s been in, since 2018.
“I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started [this album] nearly 3 years ago. Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have,” wrote Adele. “And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!
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.
And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out.”
