Yes, after six long years, it looks like Adele might finally have a new album coming out.
While nothing's set in stone, this would make Adele's first return to music since the 2015 release of her album 25. So why are people's tongues a-wagging? Please allow me to present the evidence thus far.
The rumors really started to turn up a notch with a different artist — Taylor Swift. Taylor recently announced that her new version of Red would be out Nov. 12 — a week earlier than expected — fueling speculation that Adele's new album would be out on Nov. 19 to avoid competition.
Got some news that I think you’re gonna like - My version of Red will be out a week earlier than scheduled (including the 4 disc vinyl) on November 12th ! Can’t wait to celebrate the 13th with you and our new/old autumn heartbreak album🧣😍 🎥 🎥https://t.co/FVp6xizaOG
But hey, maybe Taylor's just efficient! Well, mysterious "30" billboards then started popping up all over the place...
NOT THIS BEINF AN ADELE ALBUM ANNOUNENT I can’t
Now, this would match the naming conventions of Adele's previous albums — 19, 21, and 25. Adele is currently 33; however, 30 was likely a big year for her as she filed for divorce from Simon Konecki in 2019. Plus, Adele's albums have always come out when she's older than the age of the title.
Helloooo @Adele babe is that you!? #Adele30 #adele
Of course, this led to some great memes:
I’M SHAKING ADELE IS COMING OMG #30
OMG it’s true - Adele is about to drop her new album 30, a sign has even appeared right by my house !!! ❤️❤️❤️ #Adele30
That being said, it's difficult to tell whether all of the images are real — or if they even have anything to do with Adele.
adele hasn't even released the album yet and has already outdone everyone #Adele30
One of Adele's reported friends, Jedidiah Jenkins, also liked a ton of tweets related to the fan speculation.
