Grab your tissues: Adele is back.
Today on social media, the singer confirmed her return to music following a six-year hiatus after her 2015 album, 25. For the major announcement, Adele posted a 20-second black-and-white clip of what appears to be the upcoming music video for her new single, “Easy on Me,” which is set to release on October 15. In the teaser video, Adele slides a tape cassette (how vintage!) into her car’s stereo and goes for a cathartic drive, while dozens of pages of sheet music fly out of her car window.
Adele’s new music marks the star’s first material following her divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, in 2019. It also comes after cryptic billboards with the number 30 began to appear in cities across the globe. In the past, the singer has named her albums after the age she was when she conceptualized them—her previous projects being titled 19, 21, and 25.
According to Vulture, when Adele’s album finally drops, a coinciding television special may not be far behind. The outlet reported that the singer and her camp have “approached multiple networks and platforms about the idea of staging a TV special tied to the new release.” If the TV special is a go, it’s expected to premiere before the end of the year, just in time for the holidays.
