The reason why Adele's album names are always numbers

Rejoice Adele fans, the multi-award-winning artist is finally releasing new music.

The singer broke her long hiatus to drop a brand new single on October 15 – Easy On Me – and fans across the world are already in love with it.

The release of the single comes after the news that her next album will finally arrive on November 19 – a whole six years after her previous album, 25.

The new song collection will be called 30, but why does Adele number her albums? Is it to do with her age?

We’re here to answer all your questions so you don’t have to Roll In The Deep web.

How old is Adele?

Adele was born Adele Laurie Blue Adkins on May 5, 1988 – making her 33 years old.

She was born in Tottenham, London, to English mother, Penny Adkins, and Welsh father, Marc Evans.

To mark her thirty-third birthday, the Skyfall singer posted some rare snaps on her Instagram account, with the caption ‘Thirty free’.

She uploaded a black and white photo of herself smiling without makeup, before a snap of herself enjoying a swim in the sea.

Why are Adele’s album names numbered?

Adele’s album names reflect the age she was when she wrote them.

Her debut was titled 19, the follow-up was called 21, and her third was called 25.

In a 2015 interview with Beats1 host Zane Lowe, he quipped that Adele was too young to have to lie about her age.

Adele explained that the album ages and her names never quite coincided, saying ‘I was 20 when 19 came out. I was 23 when 21 came out. I am 27. And so proud of being 27, thanks very much.’

She had considered doing away with her system of naming albums after her age, saying: ‘I think this will be my last age one. I’m sure I’m wrong with this but I feel there’s been a massive change in me in the last couple of years.’

Adele added: ‘I think the next one will probably be called Adele. It will be, I’m not joking.’

But that hasn’t been the case this time out, with the new album maintaining her numbered naming approach.

With the reveal of her new album artwork – a side profile of herself – she explained ‘I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly three years ago… And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!

‘I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go so far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.’ 

No matter the name, we will stand tall and face it all together – bring on November.
