Adele: “I feel like I’ve spent my whole life so far wishing it away”

Adele has not made it easy on her fans over the past four years, leaving us waiting and watching for her next album to hit. There have been speculations and supposed sightings of clues posted on social media, but with no real confirmation; until now. Following a teasing snippet of a song by the English singer during Sunday’s episode of the X-Factor in the Uk, Adele posted what looks like the insert to her upcoming album, on her Facebook page this week.

The lengthy post, has the 27 year old Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter and mother of one, sharing her thoughts on life and the future. The major theme seems to be the revelation of spending her life, wishing it away. “I feel like I’ve spent my whole life so far wishing it away. Always wishing I was older, wishing I was somewhere else, wishing I could remember and wishing I could forget too“, she writes in the opening paragraph.

One could expect that this note would fit nicely into the cover of her upcoming album. Which it appears will be appropriately titled, 25 – “25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising“.

Adele’s first two albums were both given the number of the age she was when she wrote and produced them. Her first 19 and its follow up 21. As she admits in her Facebook post, the upcoming record did go a bit longer than it took the previous ones to release, sharing “I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened“.

The teaser that aired Sunday October 18th, was just enough to get her fans back on board and ready for the new album. The song is a good sign that Adele has not ventured to far from what we’ve come to love about her.

Adele’s Song Teaser:

Read Adele’s full Facebook post below.

When I was 7 I wanted to be 8. When I was 8 I wanted to be 12. When I turned 12 I just wanted to be 18. Then after that I stopped wanting to be older. Now I’m ticking 16-24 boxes just to see if I can blag it! I feel like I’ve spent my whole life so far wishing it away. Always wishing I was older, wishing I was somewhere else, wishing I could remember and wishing I could forget too. Wishing I hadn’t ruined so many good things because I was scared or bored. Wishing I wasn’t so matter of fact all the time. Wishing I’d gotten to know my great grandmother more, and wishing I didn’t know myself so well, because it means I always know what’s going to happen in the end. Wishing I hadn’t cut my hair off, wishing I was 5’7”. Wishing I’d waited and wishing I’d hurried up as well.

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. But I haven’t got time to hold on to the crumbs of my past like I used to. What’s done is done. Turning 25 was a turning point for me, slap bang in the middle of my 20s. Teetering on the edge of being an old adolescent and a fully fledged adult, I made the decision to go into becoming who I’m going to be forever without a removal van full of my old junk. I miss everything about my past, the good and the bad, but only because it won’t come back. When I was in it I wanted out! So typical. I’m on about being a teenager, sitting around and chatting shit, not caring about the future because it didn’t matter then like it does now. The ability to be flippant about everything and there be no consequences. Even following and breaking rules … is better than making the rules. 25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.

Love Adele
