Like is, you’ve probably been listening to Adele’s new single Hello on repeat since it was first played in full for the very first time on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio One show last week.
Reminding the world just how much of a good singer she really is, Adele joined Nick, ready for the big reveal. She admitted: ‘I feel so sick. I’m so nervous’ before getting tearful as her song played out. And we don’t blame her. It’s one emotional track.
Now, upping the excitement about the return of Adele even further, it’s been announced that BBC One will show Adele at the BBC in November. Hosted by Graham Norton, the world-exclusive show will be Adele’s first television performance since she performed Skyfall at the 85th Academy Awards in February 2013. Accompanied by her live band, Adele will perform her classics as well songs from the new album, 25, and chat to Graham about her career and life to date.
Even more excitingly, you could be in the audience. Yep, tickets to the show will be available via an audience ballot. Registration to apply is open now until midnight on Wednesday 28th October 2015. What are you waiting for?
No doubt her fans will be clamouring to get their hands on a pair of tickets. After all, Twitter was quick to applaud her new music offering, with one user writing: ‘Adele could be singing the wheels on the bus and I’d still get goosebumps – amazing soul! @grimmers #adeleongrimmy #ADELEISBACK’.
Another stated: ‘#AdeleOnGrimmy brilliant play it again’.
This comes days after she well and truly broke the internet, after teasing what appeared to be some brand new material from an upcomming album in a faceless TV advert during X Factor.
Speaking of the ad, she said: ‘I thought no-one’s going to know it’s me. It’ll backfire.’
‘When I looked there were three tweets. I thought I’d missed my window. But then my boyfriend told me there were loads.’
In what will be a follow-up to her incredible album, 21, which was released in 2011, her next will be named 25, marking the age that she was whilst recording it.
Taking to Twitter to post an open letter, she apologised for the wait, saying ‘I’m sorry it took so long but, you know, life happened.’
She revealed the meaning behind her latest offering, ‘My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one, I would call it a make-up record… Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did.’
Speaking of the album title and the age it symbolises, she reveals: ‘Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my twenties. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully fledged adult.’
The statement did not include any details about the release, but iit has since been revealed that BBC Radio 1 will premiere Adele’s first new single on Friday, October 30th.
This comes days after Adele threw fans into a fit of hysteria with an advert during the X Factor Six Chair Challenge. Television screens around the nation went black, and the sound of Adele’s signature tones filled the living rooms of the UK.
Naturally, it didn’t take long for Twitter to erupt in waves of excitement, and it also wasn’t long before Adele was a trending topic.
Although no date or album information was included in the clip, and even the singer’s name was absent, viewers recognised that soulful voice instantly.
Many took this as an instant sign that the wait for Adele’s new album was over.
Twitter users shared the clip, which many users had filmed from their phones, building up a lot of anticipation.
X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw also took to Twitter to announce, ‘ready for new stuff from this madam.’
The Someone Like You singer has not released her own music since 2012, when she took on the legendary soundtrack for James Bond’s Skyfall.
Welcome back, Adele.
