Adele Teases New Music On Surprise TV Commercialby Erica Russell | PopCrush
It’s been over four years since British pop diva Adele has graced the world with an album, her last being 21, which was released back in January of 2011. That record won six Grammy Awards and sold over 11 million copies in the United States alone.
While fans have been patiently waiting (and praying and begging and pleading) for new music from the soulful songstress, rumors of a new album hitting shelves as early as November have been swirling online. As of today, however, those rumors no longer seem so far-fetched.
Today, a television commercial featuring a snippet of a song off the artist’s forthcoming third album appeared on TV in the UK, right during the The X Factor. Without any warning or even so much as a hint for fans to keep an eye out during the show’s slot on ITV, an unassuming 30-second clip featuring Adele’s voice crooning a never-before-heard track—accompanied by nothing else but some lyrics set against a jet black background—appeared between commercials for Dominos and Tic-Tacs.
Set against a sparse, piano-driven soundtrack, Adele simply sings in the clip, “Hello, it’s me / I was wondering if after all these years / You’d like to meet to go over everything / They say that time’s supposed to heal ya / But I ain’t done much healing.” Are you getting chills yet?
So far, there has been no confirmed information regarding the album’s release date, nor any confirmation of what the song in the clip is called.
