Adele has finally announced the release date of her highly-anticipated new album, titled 30.

The Hello singer has been enthusiastically welcomed back to the music industry after a six-year hiatus, with her new single Easy On Me dropping tomorrow.

With the single finally upon us, there’s one question on everyone’s minds: when is the album coming coming out, and when will she tour?

Here is all you need to know…

When is Adele’s album out?

The new album will be released on November 19.

The 33-year-old singer dropped the news via Twitter and Instagram where she shared a preview of the album’s artwork next to a lengthy caption where she revealed the album has been three years in the making.

 ‘I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly three years ago… And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!’ she wrote.

‘I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go so far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life. 

‘And so, I’m ready to finally put this album out.’

So far, it’s unknown what songs will be appearing on the new album, other than her new single Easy on Me.

Adele shared a clip of the new song on Instagram Live with the words ‘There ain’t no good in this river that I’ve been washing my hands in forever / And there is hope in these waters, but I can’t bring myself to swim when I am drowning.’

During an Instagram Live session with her fans on Saturday, Adele was asked about the subject matter of her upcoming project. She promptly replied, ‘Divorce babe, divorce.’

It appears the album was inspired by her recent divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki.

Other than that, the singer has kept her cards very close to her chest.

All we know about the new album is that it sounds ‘amazing’, according to Adele’s close friend Alan Carr.

Speaking about the new album during a Grazia UK interview earlier this year, Alan said, ‘I’ve heard some tracks on it.

‘Oh my gosh, it’s so amazing. It’s so amazing.’

Is Adele touring in 2022?

Adele has yet to release any details about plans for a tour.

However, according to sources, an Adele Las Vegas residency in 2022 is reportedly on the cards.

The Rolling In The Deep singer is said to favour the idea of basing herself in Sin City, rather than going back on the road, as it will allow her to easily travel back and forth between Los Angeles for her son, Angelo.

A source told Mail Online in August: ‘Adele has very recently been talking to musicians that she has worked with before to gauge their availability, to see whether they could be in Vegas for the gigs.

‘It is all very exciting. It would make her a lot of money but it would also mean she could have a routine. It would be hugely lucrative for her but also really fun.

‘She loves performing live and there would be no shortage of people travelling to see her once the Covid-19 restrictions are dropped.’

So, for now, we can only hope.
