The Week of Adele continues…

Now that you’ve had a full day to recover from everything Adele wrote to you and only you in that letter about her new album, the British songstress has given the world even more to cry happy tears about. Mark your calendars, folks, 25 is arriving next month:

Yes, this appears to be Adele’s first-ever Instagram post and yes, this appears to be the album cover for 25. Pinch yourself, it’s really happening.

“My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record,” the Grammy winner wrote Wednesday about the follow-up to 19 and 21.

“I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did.”

Adele, who gave birth to her son Angelo three years ago, went on to apologize about the album’s delay.

Update at 12 p.m. EST: Here’s 25‘s official track list. The first single, “Hello,” arrives Friday (Oct. 23), along with a music video directed by Xavier Dolan (J’ai tué ma mère). [via BBC]
