Updated (10/30): With Adele in Fun City next month for her SNL appearance, she’s decided to do one concert, at Radio City Music Hall. Click here for ticket info.

She ran a cryptic ad on the U.K. edition of X Factor this past Sunday night and Wednesday Adele posted on her Facebook (for the first time since March 22) and Twitter to confirm rumors (or rumours, if you prefer) that her long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s 21 is finally on its way. Not surprisingly, the Interweb started blowing up as the now-27 year-old has millions of social media followers.

“My last record was a break-up record,” she wrote, “and if I had to label this one I would call it a make-up record. I’m making up with myself. Making up for lost time.

Later, she writes: “25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realizing. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened. Love, Adele.” (Full letter below.)

Today comes word, as Best Classic Bands told you last month, the release date for 25 is November 20th (pre-order available below), and it’s reportedly the final record in her original deal with XL Recordings/Columbia Records. (2008’s 19 was her first.) Insiders say she has already inked a new worldwide deal with Sony Music (which owns Columbia) valued at more than $50 million. The singer earned six Grammy Awards for 21.
