Hello from the Other Side


Cecilia Kochanek

Adele has been rolling in the deep these past years with no new releases of an album or singles. What happened to Adele? Is she still making music? Is she even famous anymore? These are the questions everybody has been asking about her career, and we have the answers.

“My career’s not my life. It’s my hobby,” said Adele to Rolling Stone’s Brian Hiatt when asked about her private life and long awaited new album, 25. In 2011, Adele won a total of seven Grammy’s at the 56th annual Grammy Awards. Top of the charts was Adele, a music superstar. Shortly after, Adele disappeared out of the blue. It came out of nowhere. No new releases of singles, albums, or collaborations. Rumor has it, Adele was finished with her music. Later that year, that rumor was false. She announced her pregnancy and told the press, “I’m on a break”. This gave her fans some light at the end of the tunnel for her music career. Before we knew it, Adele was creeping back up to the top with the release of her new single, “Hello” on Friday, October 23, 2015.

Adele’s new album, 25, will be released on Friday, November 20, 2015. The album consists of 11 singles and has collaborations with Greg Kurstin, Max Martin, Shellback, Paul Epworth, Tabias Jesso Jr., Ryan Tedder, Brian Burton, Samuel Dixon, Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, and Christopher “Brody” Brown. This is the first album Adele has released since her 2011 album, 21. “I’m so bloody excited!” shouted Adele after the announcement of 25.

She began working on her album, 25, in 2013 when she was actually 25 years old. Currently she is 27 and named the album 25 because of the date she started working on it. “Hello, it’s me,” she answered when asked, why 25.

“I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened”. It’s never too late to make an amazing comeback, and in this case, the comeback will be spectacular.  This release has us all on the edge of our seats, and we can’t wait to hear her amazing work and what the future holds for Adele
