Last night something truly wild and totally unexpected happened. That event involved the queen of all music, Adele.
It's been four years since we've had any new music from Adele, whose last album 21 was a force so unstoppable across the world that we're pretty convinced that every single person, pet and alien now owns a copy of that record.
However, during a commercial break during the UK edition of hit talent show The X Factor a 20 second clip aired that seems to signal the return of the almighty Adele.

"Hello," the faceless voice sings in the advert, "it's me."
HI ADELE! Nice to hear from you again.
Obviously, something like this can't just happen and there be no response, and social media reacted like starved hyenas.
NB// Might be worth getting some extra pants as theses responses might make you wet yourself.
I've listened to the snippet of Adele's new single more than I've listened to any ex's voicemails post-breakup.— Alex Goldschmidt (@alexandergold) October 19, 2015

I always knew Adele didn't really hate to show up out of the blue uninvited.— Alex Goldschmidt (@alexandergold) October 18, 2015

Unfortunately, know one knows anymore information other than the fact that Adele is back and sh*ts about to get real.
