Emotional Adele ‘Overwhelmed’ By Fans’ Support
Soul superstar Adele is feeling “so overwhelmed” by the love and support of her fans as she releases her new album 25. The singer made her surprise chart comeback last month, when she dropped “Hello,” her first single since James Bond theme song Skyfall in 2012. It shot to number one around the world, and became the biggest-selling track of the past three years in her native U.K., while the accompanying black-and-white promo set a new viewing record after racking up 100 million hits on Vevo.com in just five days.
On Friday, Adele released 25, the much-anticipated follow-up to her 2011 project, 21, and as fans flocked to purchase the album, she took to social media to express her gratitude in an emotional note to her followers. “This feels like such a long time coming, my new album is finally out,” she wrote. “I am so overwhelmed and grateful to be able to even put another record out, and put it out how I want. The last month has been a whirlwind, its [sic] literally taken my breath away. I hope you enjoy the record as much as I enjoyed making it for you. See you on the other side… love, Adele.”
