The singing sensation is feeling older, wiser and stronger after battling with her divorce demons over the last couple of years. Her voice is weary, her lyrics are raw and her music packs an even bigger punch than it did before.
She's spoken out in recent interviews about the album being dedicated to her son, Angelo. This is no more apparent than on track three of the gut-wrenching album, My Little Love. Fans are in tears over this tune in particular, and this is the heartbreaking reason why.
My Little Love seemingly centres the singer's son and reveals his childlike reaction to the divorce of his parents.
The song cuts deeper than any of her previous singles, boasting wound-bearing lyrics like "I feel so bad to be here when I'm so guilty / I'm so far gone and you're the only one who can save me".
Each verse is wistfully interspersed with intimate voice notes recorded by Adele, letting fans listen in on segments of a personal conversation between the star and nine-year-old Angelo.
Adele is infamously private when it comes to family life. Angelo hasn't even been spotted out-and-about since he was a toddler. So fans are relishing the chance to hear the growing boy's inner-most thoughts and feelings on the soul-crushing track.
People took to Twitter in order to vent their feelings on the first listen.
"My little love had no business making me cry this much #Adele30 [sic]", one user Tweeted.
"My Little Love. Ngl this one touched me. It's very raw" said another.
"Blimey", a third remarked. "Those voice notes on My Little Love pack a bit of a punch, don't they?! Really did not need those emotions first thing on a Friday".
Fans also commented on the gut-punch ending, in which Adele sobs to her listeners about feeling "frightened" and "lonely".
"Adele crying did something to me and I'm in a puddle of tears. out of nowhere [sic]" one user said.
"I am hungover, emotional, on my period, and Adele freaking CRYING in the voice note during My Little Love has me SOBBING at my desk. i am done" said another.
The overwhelming fan reaction comes after critics slammed Adele for the inclusion of private voice notes.
Piers Morgan claimed the singer had "crossed a line", while Janet Street-Porter accused the star of showing "fake misery".
Well, it's safe to say that the single had us in floods of tears.
