Hello, guys! Terribly sorry for the long wait AGAIN, but finals and the holiday have left me very busy and I haven't had time to post. This is a very belated post for week 3 of Christmas With Adele.
Firstly, as most of you US fans are aware, tickets for Adele's 2016 world tour went on sale last week for North American fans, and while many are not happy (over 10 million people tried to get tickets, with a very small percentage succeeding), a few of us lucked out and managed to get tickets (myself included). So... We are curious to know whether or not you guys got tickets. Please let us know below!
In the spirit of Adele's tour announcement, this week's game has to do with Adele's recent concert at Radio City Music Hall, which aired on NBC la…Read more >

Hello from the other side, Daydreamers!

Hi, guys. Happy Thanksgiving again! We apologize for not keeping you all updated with all of Adele's live performances and TV appearances from the past week, but here are all of the main ones:Read more >
Hello from the other side, Daydreamers, and Happy Thanksgiving! We have some HUGE news for you.
Adele confirmed via social media this morning that she will be touring in support of her new album, 25! So far, only UK/European dates have been announced; however, she is expected to announce American dates very soon. Earlier this year, Adele also hinted to a fan in Brazil that she would be touring there in support of her next album; however, it is unknown if Adele will stick to that plan or not. Watch the rather comical tour announcement video below, in which Adele reveals that she has been "bluffing" about a tour the entire time:
Presale codes are available, but only for members of Adele's official site. We are being told that ticket prices are e…Read more >

HUGE news, Daydreamers.
Following the announcement of Adele's new album, 25, yesterday, we received some massive news today. The album's lead single, "Hello," is out TOMORROW, October 23. And we officially have the album's track listing and album artwork! Details regarding Adele's new album have been revealed via her new Instagram (@Adele) and through her reps.
First of all, we are thrilled to announce that Adele will be releasing the album's lead single, "Hello," tomorrow, October 23. The song's music video, directed by Xavier Dolan, will also be released tomorrow. And if that's not enough, thanks to Team Adele, we now have the track listing for the new record as well:
- "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)"
- "I Miss You"
- "When We Were Young"

So, as we all heard the other day, Adele is back. Personally, I love that snippet so much, and if it's about her father, it's twice as haunting. Anyway, I guess we're in an Adele rush, because the wait is indeed over. Adele recently talked about the upcoming album on Facebook. I won't bother you about what it's about, read it yourself:
(click the image if you'd like to read from the Facebook post)
Btw, does anybody see a pattern? In the Facebook post, she says "Hello". The snippet starts with "Hello". Ah, I like it. It's all coming down now. Yikes!
EDIT: This was also posted on Twitter.Read more >
Huge news for Daydreamers everywhere! The queen is back!
Yes, the one and only (pun intended) Adele 'just dropped a preview of her new song on live television!
The snippet is about 15 seconds long and was unveiled exclusively during a commercial break for The X Factor UK. And if there was any doubt as to whether or not the singer is her, Ryan Tedder confirmed it was via OneRepublic's Twitter account. The song is speculated to be about her estranged relationship with her father, Mark Evans.
At this point, we are unsure of when the new single will drop, but with Adele's third studio album, 25, slated for a November 20 release date, it is almost guaranteed that we will have the song in full very soon.
And in other news... Not only is this trendin…

Hi, guys! We have some exciting news for everyone today.
A few weeks ago, photographer Matthew Castle tweeted about a new magazine cover featuring Adele that would have "official news attached." FuseTV's senior web producer Mark Sundstrom retweeted this, further validating the information. Being that this was right after we got the announcement from Hits Daily Double that 25 was being released on November 20, everyone was thrilled, assuming that this would probably be how Adele would announce the album.
And now, Matt has come through again. He tweeted to Daydreamer Angela Foster that, although the cover had been delayed, the magazine that will have the exclusive on Adele's new album is... Rolling Stone! Adele has previously graced the cover of…Read more >
My apologies for reporting on this so late; I was out of town for a few days and when I returned, I had a lot to catch up on. But I'm back now and I have some exciting news for Adele fans. Paul Epworth, Dan Wilson, and Ryan Tedder—all of which worked on 21—will be returning for Adele's upcoming third studio album, titled 25. Tedder had previously confirmed that he would be on the album, and Adele revealed at the Grammy Awards in 2013 that Epworth was the first one she had approached about her new album, but this is pretty much the first confirmation that Dan Wilson (who co-wrote "Someone Like You") would be returning. This news comes directly from Hits Daily Double, who also confirmed that Adele's third album was titled 25 and would be relea…Read more >
So, yesterday was clearly a very exciting day for Adele's fans, as it was finally confirmed that her new album is dropping on November 20.
And today should be an equally exciting day for her fans, as Sia's new single, "Alive," which she co-wrote with Adele and Tobias Jesso Jr., has finally been released. The song was cut from Adele's new album at the last minute and was almost immediately chosen as the lead single for Sia's seventh studio album, This Is Acting, which will feature songs Sia wrote for other artists. And, as can be expected, the song is epic. Check it out below:
As many of Adele's fans have noted, "Alive" was also released before September 30, making it eligible for a Grammy. This, therefore, also makes Adele eligibl…

Okay, Daydreamers... This is the moment we've all been waiting for. I have huge news.
Adele's long-awaited third studio album is being released November 20.
Yes, you heard me right. Adele is releasing new music after almost five years since her previous studio album, 21. Hits Daily Double confirmed the exciting news this morning, as well as confirming that the album's lead single would be released in the first or second week of November, right around the time that "Rolling in the Deep" was released five years ago.
In addition to this, they also confirmed that Adele had secured a deal with NBC in order to promote the album:

And if that's not exciting enough, Adele will also be appearing on the cover of a magazine ahead of the album release. Ph…
We have some really exciting news for Daydreamers everywhere.... Singer-songwriter Sia, known for her work with Beyoncé, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson, David Guetta, and pretty much every other pop star on the planet, has worked with Adele. Now, don't get your hopes up; the only confirmed song they worked on was cut from 25 at the last minute, but it will be released as the lead single from Sia's upcoming seventh studio album with Sia's vocals on it instead.
In an interview at the Venice Film Festival this past weekend, Sia spilled the beans on her upcoming seventh studio album, This Is Acting, a fitting title considering the album features songs that Sia had written for other artists but that she decided to record for herself. The …Read more >
After four years of endless waiting, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We can finally (hopefully) confirm that Adele has finished recording her third studio album and plans to release it in November, according to Billboard.
This past week, fans were ecstatic to learn that Entertainment Weekly's latest issue features a list of must-hear fall albums, and of course, at the top of the list, is Adele. While some fans questioned the validity of Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone further picked up on it and included her at the top of their list as well. Soon after, NME and Billboard were also reporting that Adele would be releasing an album this fall.
Earlier today, Billboard editor Jason Lipshutz posted on Twitter: "Also wrote a longer piec…Read more >
Daydreamers have been waiting for over four years to hear that Adele has finally finished recording her forthcoming third studio album, rumored to be titled 25. Now, after months and months of waiting, we supposedly have real confirmation that new music is coming.
Last month, Naughty Boy claimed that record labels were clearing their schedules in September to avoid clashing with Adele, who was supposedly releasing the same month. As of right now, it appears that Naughty Boy was wrong and that we may have a few more months to wait, but we should definitely have new music by the end of the year.
Hits Daily Double reports that Adele has finished writing and recording songs for her new album and that is in the process of being mixed at a recor…Read more >
So, for those of you who don't know, I've been playing piano for 8 years, and yesterday, I finally decided to showcase my talent to the world. I spent a long time trying to decide what song I should cover first, and I realized there was no better choice than Adele's "Someone Like You." I've always had a very deep personal connection with the song, from the moment I heard it, and emotionally, I felt like now was the best time to record it and put it out there for the world to hear. With that being said, I'm thrilled to say that I've finally recorded my piano cover of "Someone Like You" and that it's up on YouTube. You can listen to it here:

Good news, Daydreamers. It seems as though after four-and-a-half years of waiting for a new Adele album, the wait might finally be over.
According to British musician Naughty Boy, record labels are clearing their schedules because Adele is releasing in September, and none of them want their artists' releases to flop as a result of Adele's success. Naughty Boy, who has worked with Emeli Sandé, also revealed that she is one of many artists delaying their releases to accommodate Adele's sudden decision to release in September:
Naughty Boy was previously rumored to be working with Adele, but even if he hasn't worked with her, he does work in the music industry, and that many record labels would not be clearing their schedules for a release as bi…Read more >
Hello, Daydreamers. This is just copied from my post on the forums on Adele's official website. Please take the time to read it. Thank you so much.Read more >
Okay, Daydreamers. Given the insane amount of disappointment we've dealt with lately as a result of trolls claiming to have information regarding new Adele music, this should be taken lightly, but there is a possibility that we will have new music in the next month. Sizwe Dhlomo, the presenter / producer of The Official African Chart on MTV Base and Creative Director / Presenter of South Africa’s biggest weekly music TV show, LIVE, has supposedly confirmed that she will be back in the next month.
Today, via Twitter, he confirmed that Adele and Drake both will be making a comeback soon: "Adele, Drake, all in the next few months. Soundscan is about to get violated in a major way!" He then added, "That's right, we will have new Adele music from…Read more >
Okay, Daydreamers. I am going to be extremely delusional in this post, and please do not be disappointed if this is not true. At this point, it is only a rumor. But it's a good rumor, if it's true.
As most of you know, streaming is becoming huge for the music industry, and Apple has recently announced its own streaming service, Apple Music, which officially starts today, June 30. For those of you who don't know, here's a quick run-down, courtesy of Wikipedia: There was controversy surrounding it because during the first three months of the service, there will be a free trial for users, however, many artists complained because they weren't going to get paid during these three months. Many indie record labels, including Beggars Group, which o…Read more >
We have some potentially good news for Daydreamers everywhere — if this is true. Adele was spotted at the Glastonbury Festival this past weekend, although she wasn't there to perform. Out of respect for her, we will not be posting pictures on the site because they were taken by paparazzi, but the photographs confirmed a few different things.
For starters, Adele arrived at the festival with her longtime boyfriend Simon Konecki, who is also the father of her two-year-old son Angelo. The Daily Mail claimed that since the two had not been spotted together in public since Halloween, there were allegations of a breakup, which this appearance put to rest. Simon was not the only one with Adele, though. They were also seen walking with her manager,…Read more >
For the first time in months, someone connected to Adele's upcoming third studio album, rumored to be titled 25, has spoken about the project. At the recent Cannes Lion creativity festival, Pharrell Williams confirmed that he had worked with Adele on new music. After referring to her as the main artist in the industry who is currently "getting it right", he stated: It had previously been reported on several occasions that the two were collaborating together, with one source even going so far as to state that Adele's sole reason for being in LA earlier this year was to work with Pharrell.
Williams, who is currently a judge on NBC's The Voice alongside Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Gwen Stefani, has previously been known for his versatile m…Read more >
As we all know, Adele enjoyed major success with her last release, 2012's "Skyfall", the theme from the film of the same name. The song peaked at number-eight on the Billboard Hot 100, has been certified platinum in the US, and won her both a Golden Globe and an Oscar. So, it's only natural for people to question whether or not Adele was the top choice to sing the theme for the twenty-fourth Bond film, Spectre, scheduled for release this fall. Of course, details regarding the project are scarce, as the identity of Bond theme singers has always been regarded as one of the most secretive and mysterious aspects of the films. So, what's the deal with the Spectre theme? Is Adele singing it or not?
Well, for starters, we know who James Bond's top …Read more >
Thanks to the Daydreamers over at ATRL, we may have received some new information in regards to Adele's highly anticipated third studio album, tentatively titled 25 by fans.
Now, for those of you who don't know, Sony is the parent company of Columbia Records, the record label that distributes Adele's releases in the US. Sony owns a site, Open Mic, that is "an exclusive, invite-only, online community where you are asked to give your opinions on what Sony Music is doing." Now, granted that few people actually qualify for the site when taking the entry survey, it is pretty exclusive to get in. But one of our friends over at ATRL managed to get in and has been a member on there for a while.
Earlier this week, he told us that he received an email…Read more >
So, this isn't some grand news. It's just a humorous treat. We all know Adele celebrated her lovely birthday at May 5th some days ago. You know what she did? Yep, you guessed it (because the title says so, ahem), she was in drag! She dressed as her icon George Michael from the group Wham!, whom also replied to Adele's tweet about it! Check it out here: https://twitter.com/OfficialAdele/status/595852007379968001/photo/1
May you have a nice day.Read more >
As many of the Daydreamers know, via a cryptic Tweet on her 26th birthday last year, Adele strongly hinted that a new album, rumored to be titled 25, was scheduled for release later on in the year. When confidential XL Recordings documents confirmed that Adele would not be releasing an album in 2014, however, many people were very disappointed, with some fans even believing that Adele lied to her fans.
Not true, though!
Today, WikiLeaks published a bunch of Sony emails and documents onto the Internet, one of which confirmed that Adele was originally supposed to release a new album last year! (For the full thing, go here.) Although this may seem disappointing, this may also further hint that 25 is more likely to come this year!
While still no…Read more >
Okay, guys.... Before you all get excited, keep in mind that we don't have all of the details yet. What we have been told so far, however, is probably some of the most exciting news you have heard in a long time, though: Adele's new album is (supposedly) ready for release.
As one of the Daydreamers on ATRL pointed out today, Amazon Italy has put what is rumored to be Adele's hugely anticipated third album, rumored to be titled 25, up for pre-order online. It is yet to be confirmed whether or not this is true, but what we do know is that Adele has been working on the album in LA, where she finished writing and recording her last album, 21. Adele previously teased that the album would be titled 25 in a cryptic Tweet on her birthday last year …Read more >
Needless to say, we are still anxiously awaiting a new album from Adele, who hasn't released a full-length LP in over four years, the last being her record-breaking 21. Despite the absence of new Adele music in our lives, earlier this week, multiple reports surfaced that would suggest Adele will be very busy in the coming months, and hopefully back in the public eye very soon.
Firstly, it has been reported that Adele will indeed record the theme for the twenty-fourth James Bond film, Spectre, due out this November. Adele previously wrote "Skyfall" for the film of the same name with Paul Epworth, a song for which the duo received the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the Oscars in 2013. Spectre star Daniel Craig is report…Read more >
Hello, Daydreamers! As you all know, this is the final week for Christmas With Adele, and I would like to apologize because we weren't able to do a whole lot for it this year due to Adele practically doing nothing. We're not going to say next year will be better yet, because we said that last year thinking we'd have new music by now, and look where we're at.
In honor of our last week of Christmas With Adele, however, we do have a Christmas present to all of the fans, courtesy of Daydreams, a fellow Daydreamer that I'm friends with through a music site called ATRL. On their Tumblr are the rare demos for "My Same" and "Daydreamer", songs taken from her debut album, 19. These are two of the rare demos that originally got Adele signed to XL Rec…Read more >
Hey guys! I'm terribly sorry this is so late.... Here is Week 3 of Christmas with Adele. Due to time constraints, we have used someone else's quiz for this week's game. This week, the challenge is to name all of the lyrics to Adele's 2012 hit, "Skyfall". You can play the game here.
Not only that, but we also have some exciting news! Adele has finally confirmed the name of her son to be Angelo. In a note to her good friend Elton John, apologizing for not being in attendance at his wedding, she not only said she would see him in 2015 (maybe at the Grammys, where she'll hopefully make her comeback?), but she also signed the note from herself, Simon, and Angelo. :) Although we had suspicions that his name was Angelo, this is the first time we ha…Read more >
Hello, guys! I am extremely sorry for the late blog post this week. This year is a very busy time of year for everyone, and with several personal issues going on as well as how incredibly busy I am at work, it's been hard to update, but here is Week 2 of Christmas With Adele.

Hello, everyone! As promised, our annual "Christmas With Adele" tradition has continued this year.
Later on in this week, I hope to be decorating the main page with a digital Christmas tree and getting us into the holiday spirit. Unfortunately, last year we were anticipating new music from Adele by now, so we will be limited in what we are able to do to spice up the Christmas season at the Adele Wiki, but we will do our best. In order to do this, one of the things we have decided to do is give a weekly Adele trivia game.
Thanks to the online quiz site Sporcle, we were able to create a quiz on all of Adele's songs: http://www.sporcle.com/games/AdeleWikia/adeletrivia1. Feel free to play the game and post your scores below!

Hello Daydreamers! Happy Thanksgiving! We hope all is well.
We have a brief news wrap-up from this week. Not only did we get some more (minor) details regarding Adele's third studio album (reportedly called 25), but we also found out that Adele has sold a crapload more copies of her record-breaking sophomore studio album 21 this year.
First things first. We are proud to announce that according to Media Traffic, 21 has sold approximately 456,000 copies worldwide this year alone. Since its release in 2011, it is estimated to have sold approximately 30 million copies, making it one of the best-selling albums of all-time. It also spawned three number-one singles ("Rolling in the Deep", "Someone Like You", and "Set Fire to the Rain") and one top 20…Read more >
We have some very exciting news for the Daydreamers. Despite the fact that Adele has been busy recording her third studio album and as a result, probably will not release new music until next year, we can confirm that we will hear her voice again on a track before the end of the year. Adele has recently been confirmed to be one of the featured artists on Band Aid 30. She, along with One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Olly Murs, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sandé, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Elbow, Sam Smith, Bono of U2, Bastille, Paloma Faith, Jessie Ware, and more yet-to-be-announced artists will be re-recording the track "Do They Know It's Christmas?", which will feature altered to target the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
As if that's not exciting enough, th…Read more >
Before I continue, please note that this is pure speculation and none of this has been confirmed yet.
Adele hasn't released an album since 2011 with 21, and after a cryptic Tweet earlier this year implying that she would be releasing her third studio album, 25, before the end of the year, fans were disappointed when her label XL Recordings confirmed in a financial report that no new release from Adele was scheduled for this year. What some are suggesting, though, is that the reasoning for this is that XL is no longer her record label.
Last month, it was reported that Adele was in negotiations to leave her current record label, XL Recordings, for Sony. The reported £80 million deal would give Adele her own record label and give her the opport…Read more >
Heartbreaking news for Daydreamers today.... In a new financial report from XL Recordings, it has been confirmed that global superstar Adele will not be releasing new music this year, despite previous reports. In honor of her birthday this year, Adele Tweeted, "Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year x". Many interpreted this as a hint at new music, believing that her upcoming third studio album would be titled 25 and would be released before the end of the year. According to the New York Times, XL's most recent financial report has denied the speculation that Adele was releasing this year:

Well we love the Hunger Games soundtracks and are totally excited that Lorde will be curating the soundtrack for the third Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay Pt 1.

Okay, Daydreamers, now... Don't quote me on this, but there have been some reports that a release date was finally chosen for Adele's highly anticipated third studio album, rumored to be titled 25. Rumour Has It the new album will be released on November 24. Although Adele or XL Recordings have yet to make an official statement, a few different sources have made reference to this possible release date.
It was reported a few weeks ago that Adele and One Direction would go head-to-head on November 24, when both artists release new albums, according to Female First. Many fans were skeptical of this statement, being that One Direction and Adele are both signed to Columbia Records in the US and are the label's biggest artists, along with Beyonc…Read more >
Well, Daydreamers.... There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel after all. While we haven't heard anything about new music yet, today has been a good Labor Day for Adele fans. THREE new audios leaked online today. Yesterday, a snippet of an unreleased song titled "You'll Never See Me Again" leaked online, and it was later revealed that there was a promo CD on Discogs that showed "You'll Never See Me Again", "Never Gonna Leave You", and "Set Fire to the Rain" as the track listing. The CD was titled Fraser T. Smith Sessions. Soon after, I discovered that "You'll Never See Me Again" and "Never Gonna Leave You" appear on Fraser T. Smith's BMI, although they don't appear under Adele's because she is incorrectly credited as "Adele Watkins…Read more >
Today is a huge day, Daydreamers. First of all, it's the third anniversary of the Adele Wiki. I just wanted to take the time to thank all of the users that help me with the Wiki, and all of the administrators. I cannot thank you enough for all that you've done to make this Wiki so fantastic. I owe you guys so much. Thank you. I also want to thank Adele because she's my inspiration in everything I do, including this. I do this for her. Thank you all for your love and support and for three wonderful years in this community. I love you all so much. Thank you.
As a thank-you to you, I have an exclusive new song from Adele that we're going to premiere right here, right now! The song is titled "You'll Never See Me Again" and was a cut from 21. It wa…Read more >
Well, Daydreamers, it seems as though the wait for new music is almost over. Today, music industry insider Paul Moss posted the registration code for Adele's new album, which we previously reported had been registered without a title and could be released anywhere from now until June of 2015. When asked where 25 (the album's rumored title) was, Paul responded with what was listed, presumably through SoundScan, as he works for a PR company connected to SoundScan, the company that deals with charts and sales and whatnot for the music industry.
It first reads "ADELE LP (14 15)"; this is referring to the release year of the album, which will be either 2014 or 2015. Although it has yet to be determined, it was previously stated that XL Recording…Read more >
For those of you who are unaware, Adele just won a five-figure sum in damages after paparazzi published photographs of her son, Angelo from last summer. Jenny Afia, Adele's lawyer, stated that Adele insisted Angelo never become "public property". She continued, "It is a matter of profound sadness that many of his milestone moments, such as his first family outing and his first trip to playgroup, were photographed and published worldwide expressly against his family's wishes." The damages from the settlement with photo agency Corbis Images UK will be held in a trust for Angelo, and the agency agreed not to use the photos again.
We are very happy to hear that Adele has taken action against those who wish to invade her personal, private life, …Read more >
According to the World Music Awards' Twitter account, Adele has confirmed a world tour in support of her third studio album , 25. Although it was reported for months that Adele would be touring in 2015 in support of her third album (rumored to be titled 25 after a cryptic message posted via Twitter earlier this year). The World Music Awards' Twitter account is verified, and Adele has been nominated for several World Music Awards in the past few years, however, some fans claim that this is an unreliable source. Regardless of whether or not this is true, Adele did confirm last week that she will be touring in support of her third album when she contacted a fan and left her a note in which she acknowledged the third album and revealed that sh…Read more >
Another update on Adele's third studio album. Richard Russell, who owns Adele's record label, XL Recordings, recently did an interview with the BPI (British Recorded Music Industry). Of course, the main topic of discussion was Adele's third studio album, rumored to be titled 25 following a cryptic Tweet posted earlier this year. So, what did he have to say about the album? Well, BPI took to Twitter to give fans updates, and remarked that everyone in the room was pressing for Adele's next album release date. Fans across the world took to Twitter to further press for information. BPI retweeted several of the Tweets, but did not respond until they came across a question from one of our administrators, Ichinaru19, that was on everyone's minds: …Read more >
Hello, Daydreamers! Another update on Adele's third studio album. According to an anonymous source who spoke exclusively to the Daily Star (which is not an entirely reliable source, keep in mind), revealed that Adele has not only finished the album, but will most likely title it 25 as expected and "pull a Beyoncé", meaning that she plans to release the album as a surprise later on in the year, similarly to how Beyoncé released her self-titled fifth studio album as a surprise back in December of 2013. While speaking about the alleged surprise release, the source said:
