Smile! You Won't Be Able To Once Adele Releases New Album

One day after apologizing to fans for the delay in a heartfelt letter, Adele has officially announced the release date for her third album. "25" will arrive on November 20, as previously reported. That means you have less than a month to get your heart smashed to bits, which is the only way to get the full Adele experience. In addition to the release date, Adele has also shared what appears to be the album cover, which — you guessed it! — is yet another sepia-toned portrait of the singer in all her winged-liner, fluttery-lashed perfection. The countdown to "25" starts now!
