Adele’s highly anticipated followup to her 2011 smash hit, 21, is finally confirmed for release. Her third studio album, titled 25, will be released on November 20th, and is described as more of a makeup album than a breakup album. Adele posted a long note on Twitter talking about the inspiration behind the new music: Always wanting what she didn’t have, wishing she was someplace else or was somehow different, and how turning 25 was a turning point for her.
