Adele releases 'Hello', first single from new album

23 October 2015, 18:55

London - British singer Adele on Friday released a melancholic ballad from her hotly-anticipated new album due out on November 20, breaking a four-year wait for millions of fans after her best-selling "21".

"Hello" is about a love story gone wrong and features the same powerful voice and emotion of her international blockbuster "Someone Like You".

"I'm sorry for breaking your heart/ But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore," the 27-year-old sings in the black-and-white video, filmed in the Quebec countryside around Montreal.

The album "25" is being released on November 20.

The singer told fans in a letter posted on her social media accounts this week that she chose the title because her 25th birthday marked a turning point.

"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 said.

"I'm making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did."

The new release will be Adele's third album and follow a pattern as her previous works were entitled "19" and "21," also after her ages.

"21" which featured "Someone Like You" and other hits including "Rolling in the Deep" won the Grammy award for Album of the Year and spent two consecutive years as the top-selling album in the United States.

In Britain, "21" is comfortably the best-selling album of the 21st century so far.

After the massive success, Adele said that she wanted a break to give some time to herself.

While "Someone Like You" reflected on a break-up before her stardom, Adele in 2012 gave birth to a son with a new partner.
