Adele Calls '25' a 'Make-Up Record,' Reveals Full Album Details
Adele's long-rumoured 25 LP is supposedly arriving next month. While the singer hasn't yet revealed its release date, she did confirm the 25 title, along with the album's themes, in a new open letter.

While 21 was her "break-up record," Adele explained that 25 will serve as a "make-up record." In other words, it's all about self-acceptance and contentment with her life.
