Don’t expect a bunch of angsty songs about heartbreak on Adele’s new album. After literally years of anticipation, the Grammy-winning Brit, 27, took to Facebook on Wednesday, Oct. 21, to talk about her already buzzed-about upcoming record, which is rumored to be called 25, in a lengthy post.
“My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record,” she wrote. “I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did. But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done.”
Further indicating that her new album will be titled, 25, Adele spoke about the impact that particular birthday had on her as an artist and a person.
“Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties,” she wrote. “Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully-fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk. I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back.”
The mother of 3-year-old son Angelo is expected to release her album in November. It is her first since the 2011 smash success of 21.
“25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising,” she continued in her Facebook post. “And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”
