Adele has confirmed her new album will be called 25, and says it will tackle her transition into adulthood.
It follows the singer's pattern of naming her albums after her age: Her debut was titled 19 and the follow-up was called 21.
"My last record was a break-up record," she wrote in a statement, "and if I had to label this one, I would call it a make-up record.
"Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did."
The singer continued: "25 is about getting to know who I've become without realising. And I'm sorry it took so long but, you know, life happened."
