International soul star and Grammy winner, Adele - who has been M.I.A from the music industry over the last few years - finally announced the release date of her highly anticipated new album, titled "30".

The British songstress posted a statement to her social media accounts, revealing her long-awaited fourth album will hit shelves and streaming services on November 19, 2021.

"I was certainly nowhere near where I'd hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago," began Adele's statement, which she shared on Twitter and Instagram.

"Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly - willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!

"I've learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I've shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones," the statement continued.

She added: "And so, I'm finally ready to put this album out."

Revealing that the album was her "ride or die". Check out the full statement below!
