30 is Adele’s first release since 2015’s album, 25.

It also specifies the album was produced with collaborators Greg Kurstin, Max Martin and Shellback and Tobias Jesso alongside Inflo and Ludwig Goransson. 

Further tracks hinting at the heartbreaking split include To Be Loved and Can’t Be Together.

The album also features Adele’s comeback single and worldwide chart topper, Easy On Me.

It comes after tickets to see Adele in the UK were reselling for almost £7,500 on Saturday after a clamour from fans desperate to see the singer perform in her home city for the first time in five years.

They sold out within minutes as more than 100,000 fans joined an official, digital queue for tickets to see her at London’s Hyde Park in two shows next July.

But tickets soon appeared on reselling websites for more than 12 times their face value, despite organisers warning that any tickets bought unofficially could see their holders denied entry.

One reselling website was advertising the most expensive ‘diamond’ tickets – officially £579 – at £7,441 each.

Even the general admission tickets, originally £90.45, were being resold for £747.

Among the disappointed fans was MP Alex Davies-Jones, 32, who tweeted: ‘Unsurprisingly they’re all sold out, but shock horror there’s plenty for sale on third party sites… Clearly the current legislation isn’t working as it’s not enforced.’Adele announced her new album last month with an Instagram post captioned: ’30 – November 19’, she also shared a picture of a lengthy statement in which she confessed that she spent many nights ‘sobbing and consumed with grief’ as she struggled to come to terms with the breakdown of her marriage – the inspiration behind her album.
