Adele has sent fans into meltdown by revealing the long wait for her new music is finally over as she has teased her brand new single – which is set for release in just ten days time.
The 33-year-old star took to social media on Tuesday to announce the title and release date of her new single – and to tease a few seconds of music ahead of it’s release.
It has been six long years since Adele last released an album – with her third record, titled 25, unleashed way back in November 2015.
But now the star has a new single called Easy On Me set to come out on October 15th – and the track is the first track to be revealed from her long-awaited fourth album, which is expected to be titled 30.
Announcing her new single on Twitter, Adele wrote: “Easy On Me – October 15” and shared a 21 second clip of music which featured delicate notes being played by a piano.
Footage in the accompanying video showed the singer sat at the wheel of a car, and pushing a cassette into the vehicle’s music system.
The black and white video showed the star looking in her rear view mirror and driving while waving her hand through the air while driving through the countryside.
Pages of music in the backseat are caught by the wind as the singer drivers and are pulled out of the car through an open window as she speeds away.
While the clip ends showing that the car is pulling a trailer that is full of possessions – which could hint the song is about the collapse of a relationship.
Fans have reacted with joy at the news of the new material and the fact that the new single is arriving so soon.
One emotional follower responded to Adele’s post by sharing a photo of a crying woman along with the caption: “We are ready to get depressed queen.”
Another fan claimed they had burst into tears listening to the teaser, as they responded to Adele’s social media posts writing: “CHILLS CRYING CHILLS”.
While another fan insisted that the song was already Adele’s best – even though they had heard just a fraction of the song.
The besotted fan wrote: “Me after 20 seconds: This is the best song I’ve ever heard.”
Taking note of the clip that was shared by the singer, one fan noted that it explained the reason Adele’s hotly anticipated new music was over a year late.
They speculated: “At least now we know why the comeback took so long, the songs flew out of the car.”
Last year, Adele was submerged by speculation that her fourth album would have been released in 2020.
For a time, industry experts predicted the star would release the album in time for the 2020 festive season.
However, the record failed to materialise – while the star herself told reporters last August she had “no idea” when the album would be out.
The ongoing Covid pandemic was blamed for the delay in the release – as many major stars have held back releasing music during the pandemic as they had concerns about attending recording studios during the health crisis.
While other stars noted that they would be unable to tour in support of a new album in the shadow of the pandemic.
Expectation for Adele’s new album has been mounting for the past week – with speculation that fellow singer Taylor Swift moved an album release of her own forward by a week to leave a gap in the record release schedule for Adele to unleash her album on November 19th.
Whil billboards featuring the number 30 – which is the expected title of the new album – began to appear around the world over the past weekend.
