Oscar-winning singer Adele's upcoming album '25' is going to release in India on November 20. The much-awaited album, with 'Hello' as its lead single, is the first offering from the songstress since her Grammy and Oscar winning single 'Skyfall' in 2012.


"25" is the follow-up to 2011 blockbuster album "21," which topped the the Billboard 200 chart for 24 weeks, making her the first female artist to top the list for so long.

"My last record was a break up record and if I had to label this one I would call it a make up record. I'm making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did," Adele, 27, said in an statement.

"Hello" that released last week, is already topping the charts. The video is directed by Canadian director Xavier Dolan, who terms working with Adele a "privilege".

"It was a privilege to direct the music video for Adele's beautiful, heartbreaking song. When I first heard it, all the images were already running by so clearly in my head and her trust and generosity allowed me to create freely," Dolan said.

The single has swiftly taken off at the #1 spot on both songs and albums charts on iTunes India within just 24 hours of its release.
