It's time to emotionally prepare for the return of Adele.

After weeks of hinting to fans across the globe by way of cryptic projections of the number 30, Adele has confirmed that new music is just around the corner. The 15-time Grammy winner released her first single off her fourth studio album Thursday. With "Easy on Me," fans have waited with bated breath to hear the star's first song in more than six years.

Below, we answer all your questions about the superstar's new musical era.

Adele shared a sneak peek of her new single on Instagram.

The singer gave fans a taste of what "Easy on Me" sounds like during a recent Instagram Live session.

"There ain't no gold in this river / That I've been washing my hands in forever / I know there is hope in these waters / But I can't bring myself to swim when I am drowning in this silence / Baby, let me in," she sings in the clip.

What is the album about?

During an Instagram Live session with her fans, Adele was asked about the subject matter of her upcoming project. She promptly replied, "Divorce babe, divorce." You might remember that the singer finalized her divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, back in January.

When is 30 releasing?

With a moving message about how meaningful the project has become to her, the singer confirmed on social media that her fourth studio album will release on November 19.

Are there any collaborations on the album?

Maintaining consistency with her past projects, Adele's new album features no collaborators, the singer has confirmed.

A television special and Oprah Winfrey interview are also happening.

According to Variety, a televised concert titled Adele, One Night Only will air on CBS five days ahead of the release of her new album, 30.

The special will air Sunday, November 14 at 8:30 PM ET and will be filmed in Los Angeles, with the singer set to perform new songs from her upcoming project as well as some of her greatest hits.

Adele will also sit down with media icon Oprah Winfrey "from her rose garden" where the singer will discuss "her new album, the stories behind the songs, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son.”

The "Easy on Me" music video officially premiered on YouTube.

The "Easy on Me" music video has officially premiered on YouTube in tandem with the single's drop at 7pm ET on October 15—and it's just as tearjerking and moving as we'd imagined.

Featuring vintage-inspired cinematography, the video shows Adele singing of forgiveness over her innocent past mistakes as she reflects back on a failed relationship. The mood is somber and nostalgic, and all too cathartic. You can watch the video in full sequence down below.
