For the first time since 2015’s Grammy Award-winning album 25Adele has finally given us a glimpse of her long-awaited new music with a teaser video for her upcoming single, “Easy on Me.”

The 20-second preview features the British singer in black-and-white putting a tape in a car’s cassette player and driving away with her belongings in tow. Soft piano music plays as several sheets of music fly out the window.

Along with the preview came a complete overhaul of all of Adele’s online channels, with her Instagram, YouTube, and website pages sporting a new logo. In addition, after a nine-month hiatus, Adele opened her Twitter account — now dressed in teal — to join the clamor that Facebook’s global outage caused.

Speaking of teal, the new hues also seem to match the color scheme of the mysterious billboards that broke out of nowhere, bearing the number “30,” the presumed title of her fourth full-length album. From the Louvre in Paris to the Colosseum in Rome and even New York City’s Empire State Building, the international tease looks to be a literal sign that Adele’s forthcoming full-length is almost upon us.

When will it come out?

But the big question is: when will Adele’s fourth album arrive? That the first clue that fans picked up from the songstress came as early as 2019 — when she wrote on Instagram that “30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you” — might mean that Adele’s taking her time, thus the drop date is anyone’s hunch.

However, followers of Adele’s and Taylor Swift’s close friendship also assume that it might come as early as the end of the year — November, to be exact. This is based on Swift’s statement that she’s bumping up the re-release of Red (Taylor’s Version) a week to November 12.

This led fans to believe that Adele’s album will debut near the date and that the country singer moved hers so they wouldn’t compete against each other in the same week.
