The return of Adele


Nearly five years since the release of her second album, 21, Adele has today revealed the first track from her third album 25.

Entitled ‘Hello’ the track is available to download now, and the album is available to pre-order. It will be released on November 20. You can stream the video below, which has had nearly 5 million plays in its first day. The video also features a cameo by American actor Tristan Wilds (The Wire, The Secret Life of Bees). The track is already topping the iTunes charts in the UK, and not surprisingly, the album’s pre-sales are topping both Amazon and iTunes, too.

The artwork for the album is at the top of this post. The tracklisting for the album is as follows:
1. Hello
2. Send My Love (To Your New Lover)
3. I Miss You
4. When We Were Young
5. Remedy
6. Water Under The Bridge
7. River Lea
8. Love In The Dark
9. Million Years Ago
10.All I Ask
11.Sweetest Devotion

25 is released by XL on November 20.

Upcoming new releases…

Five tracks from three upcoming albums I’m looking forward to…

Hot Chip’s Made In The Dark is already getting bloggers salivating across the blogosphere. ‘Ready For The Floor’ is getting airplay, and the album sounds like it should be as big or even bigger than The Warning. This is due out on February 4.

Adele’s gone straight to no.2 in the charts with ‘Chasing Pavements and her debut 19 is out next week. This year’s Kate Nash or Lily Allen? Why is that a bad thing? For my money, I prefer ‘Hometown Glory.’

Finally, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are set to release their fourteenth studio album Dig, Lazarus Dig on March 3. A new Nick Cave album is always worth getting excited about, and as the greatest living Australian, worth hearing and seeing.
