Lately, if you鈥檝e been noticing a hole in your life in the shape of an Adele song, you should take heart. It鈥檚 been a long time you鈥檝e heard anything about Adele, but rumor has it she鈥檒l soon be back again (Get it? Because she had a song called 鈥淩umor Has It鈥? Get it?). Ever since she hit the scene in 2008 the world has been rocked by her tragically sad break-up songs, incredible voice and that killer hair. She took a looong break after the birth of her baby and the success of her last album 21 and hit single 鈥淪kyfall鈥 (get that work-life balance, yo!), but she announced on Facebook that her new record will drop November 20, 2015. It was the YAAAS heard round the world.


Adele referred to her last album as a break-up album but says this new one is a 鈥渕ake-up鈥 record where she鈥檚 鈥渕aking up for all the things I never did and all the things I ever did.鈥 The Grammy-winning artist has a tendency to name her albums after the her age while she was making the record (19, 21 鈥 you get the idea). This album is no different, with the now 25-year-old singer naming her latest 25. In regards to aging, she鈥檚 also gained some insight over the years. On her Facebook, she posted some wisdom about getting older and here are some highlights to get you crazy inspired.

We鈥檝e all wished at some point that we could be older or younger and Adele is no different. 鈥淲hen I was eight, I wanted to be 12. When I turned 12, I just wanted to be 18. Then after that I stopped wanting to be older,鈥 she says, 鈥淣ow I鈥檓 ticking the 16-24 boxes just to see if I can blag it.鈥

She says she feels like to some extent she鈥檚 always 鈥渨ishing my life away.鈥 Think about that the next time you鈥檙e getting nostalgic over a #TBT photo and remember to carpe diem. Adele shared that her new album 25 and this particular age will be the point in her life where she is 鈥渢eetering on the edge of being an older adolescent and fully fledged adult.鈥 Part of growing up is shouldering responsibility, figuring out your career and maturing. Part of maturing is letting go of some of the stuff from you past. 鈥淚 made the decision to go into who I was going to be forever,鈥 she wrote. Queen.

Adele also addressed those who questioned her extended hiatus at the end of her post by saying, 鈥淚鈥檓 sorry it鈥檚 been so long but you know, life happened.鈥 It鈥檚 okay, Adele, don鈥檛 apologize. We understand and we鈥檙e just glad to have you back.
