Adele has reportedly signed to Columbia Records in the UK to release her forthcoming new album, titled 30. The singer is set to make her long-awaited musical comeback this Friday (October 15) with the release of her new single “Easy On Me.”
NME reports that Adele, 33, will release both “Easy On Me” and her upcoming album on Columbia Records in the UK. Her contract with XL expired following the release of her third album, 25, in 2015.
Today, Adele revealed the title of her upcoming album as well as explaining the meaning behind 30 on her social media: “I was certainly no where near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago,” she began. “Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!”
“I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way,” Adele shared. “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.”
Yesterday (October 12), Adele, shared the album artwork for “Easy On Me, set for release at midnight on Friday (October 15).
