Adele surprised U.K. X Factor viewers by unexpectedly breaking her silence on her hotly anticipated new album and teasing new music in a commercial. The advert, which features about 15 seconds of a new, as-yet untitled track along with the lyrics over a black background, doesn’t give away too much, other than to say that Adele is back. Or at least, she will be very soon. Check it out. (h/t UnrealityTV)
