We’re sure you have heard it. English singer, songwriter and ten-time Grammy award winner, Adele made quite a return with Hello, the heart-stopping single from her third album due for release on November 20. Adele’s personal growth in the 3 years since her album 21 and the birth of her first child shows in her new single.

Hello from the other side.
I must’ve called a thousand times
To tell you I’m sorry, for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home.

Hello from the outside.
At least I can say that I’ve tried
To tell you I’m sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore.

-lyrics from Hello

Adele’s vulnerable vocal expression effortlessly recalls the attempt to revive a long gone relationship. The powerhouse vocalist did exactly what she is known for–using her pain, life experience and pure talent to draw out the raw emotion hidden in the deep dark space of every fan’s heart. This time she does it with a greater display of self-forgiveness and acceptance. Once again Adele makes evident that she is one of the best vocalists and artists of her generation.

What a way to say, “Hello!” Welcome back Adele, we missed you.
