She amazed fans with her new comeback single *Hello *last month, which smashed internet records achieving 27.7 million views in just one day. And now she's amazed them again, uploading a follow-up single When We Were Young to her YouTube page, ahead of her official album launch on Friday.

The 27-year-old singer originally unveiled a teaser clip of the song for Australia's 60 Minutes earlier this week, but went on to surprise fans by releasing the ballad in its entirety on YouTube yesterday.

Amassing almost 6million views in just 24 hours, the song is set to feature in her upcoming album, 25.

Speaking to Sirius Radio on Monday she said 25 was about "everyone that you’ve ever fallen out with, everyone that you’ve ever loved, everyone that you’ve never loved."

The surprise release of her second single comes amidst reports that London's Juno Records uploaded a two-minute teaser of the 11-track album, ahead of its highly-anticipated launch. It has now, however, been taken down.

But if you can't wait till Friday to hear 25's latest ballad, check it out below...

After announcing that her new album will be titled 25, from a letter that Adele posted on her social media, we've also had our suspicions confirmed that this highly anticipated new album will be released on the 20th November this year. The album's artwork has also had an Insta-release, with Adele looking as stunning as ever.

With only a month to go before it's out, we can't wait!

We finally have a listen of some new material from Adele. After her four year hiatus from music, she's teased her next release by playing out a snippet of a song during a TV ad break this weekend.

Unbeknown to audiences, a snippet of a new track believed to be from the mum-of-one played during The X Factor. The screen went black and just six lines from a new song were played out.

The lyrics were: '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...'

No name was revealed for the track, or any further details of Adele's forthcoming album. We guess we'll just have to wait...

A new Adele album is long overdue - it's been four years since 21 was released and it's shifted so many copies it's now diamond-certified. But we may not have to wait much longer for the follow-up, as Billboard has revealed the new album is set to drop in November. Just in time to soundtrack what will no doubt be a long, cold Winter.

Billboard's info comes direct from Adele's record label, XL Records, who'd previously denied the singer was set to release a record last year.

There's few details as to the album's sound or title as yet - though last year a cryptic tweet suggested that Adele might follow form and name the album 25.

What we do know from Billboard though , is that producers and songwriters Ryan Tedder, Danger Mouse, Max Martin and Tobias Jesso Jr. have all contributed to the album. However, we'll have to wait and see if they all made the finished cut. Roll on November.
