The breakup album is coming.

Adele has been hard at work on a followup to 25 for quite some time. Fans were under the impression it’d be a collection of love songs because it appeared her family life was stable. However, the singer confirmed earlier this year she and husband Simon Konecki have separated.

Breakups are the absolute worst, but Adele’s first single, which will reportedly touch on the breakup, is being described as “upbeat.”

“The song is upbeat and is all about Adele’s relationship with her ex-husband Simon,” a source tells The Sun. “But it’s optimistic, reflective of the good times and about learning to move on from them and make new memories by yourself. It has been cathartic for her to put her feelings into her music.”

They add: “Fans can expect to hear personal details on her album. All being well, the song should be out in November but she is still working on everything.”

In a post celebrating her 31st birthday, Adele called her album 30. It’s worth mentioning because she stated years ago 25 would be the last album named after her age. It’s probably tentative, but perhaps she’s had a change of heart.

“This is 31…thank ******* god,” she said. “30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once. Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually.”

Word on the street is that the new tunes will arrive in November.
