Adele explains via tweet the three years that went into making 30 (Columbia) and says the release date is 11/19.

“It was my ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life,” she writes. “When I was writing it, it was my friend who came over with a bottle of wine and a takeaway to cheer me up. My wise friend who always gives the best advice.”

She continues to compliment the friend’s activities and encouragement before concluding, “I’ve painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart since then and this album narrates it.”
