|Adele Releases Her First New Single "Hello" In 3 Years !!|
"Hello," her first release since the Oscar-winning James Bond theme "Skyfall," is vintage Adele -- a huge, emotional ballad directed at a lost lover.
“Hello, it’s me,” the ballad begins, as if Adele is actually speaking to us, saying, “Hi, I know y’all have been thirsting for me.” Yes, Adele. We were.
The 27-year-old singer also offered an apology of sorts for the delay in readying the new album, which has been rumored to be coming, oh, anytime now since about 2013.
" '25' is about getting to know who I've become without (realizing)," she said. "And I'm sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened."
In a follow-up post Thursday, she said the album will go on sale November 20.
Released in 2011, Adele's sophomore album, "21," sold more than 11 million copies in the United States to become the biggest-selling record this decade.
The album swept the 2012 Grammy's, winning album of the year and song of the year for "Rolling in the Deep."
