Adele's long-awaited new song 'Hello' has been played on radio for the first time… and, wow, it's a smasher!

After what feels like an eternity of waiting, the multi award-winning artist is back with a bang. And we are SO EXCITED!

'Hello' received its first play on Vevo this morning, before Adele started her radio tour which included a stop to BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.

She said: "I feel so sick! I'm so nervous! I obviously want people to like it. I want to surprise people. I don't want to say something for the sake of it."

The song takes the form of a message left by Adele for a former lover, asking him to meet after some time to talk about what happened between them and so she can apologise, but he never picks up the phone.

Adele told Grimmy that the new song is reflective of her new album, which she described as a "make-up record, making up for lost time, making up for everything I ever did and never did."

A beautiful music video has also been released via Adele's official website, all arty and dramatic and oh-so-Adele. Oh, and she looks GORGEOUS in it! #eyelinergoals.

Adele's third album, 25, is released on 20 November.

As you would guess, Adele immediately began trending on Twitter as listeners (and celebs!) shared their first thoughts on the track, with the overwhelming majority giving it a massive thumbs up!
