Adele is back after four years with a new album “25.” Her last album was “21” in 2011. The British singing sensation took to Twitter to announce her comeback, and she also apologised for the delay.

The 27-year-old tweeted, “My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time, Making up for everything I ever did and never did…25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising.”

The return of Adele is a big deal because only a few artists sell as many albums as she does. Her last album, “21”, scored three Billboard No. 1 singles and sold more than 11 million copies in the U.S. alone. It went on to sell an estimated 30 million copies around the world and won a total of seven Grammy Awards, including album of the year. The Brit singer is expected to repeat her previous success with her new album “25.”

A glimpse of her new album was seen during a mysterious television clip that aired during “X Factor U.K." “Hello, it’s me,” “I was wondering / if after all these years / you’d like to meet / To go over everything / They say that time’s supposed to heal ya / But I ain’t done much healing,” she was heard saying.

One Republic’s lead singer Ryan Tedder, who worked with Adele on her last album and has collaborated again for “25," confirmed that was really her through a tweet, suggesting that the track may be yet another addition to the Adele-Tedder team alongside “Rumour Has It” and “Turning Tables.”
