Adele fans, this could be music to your ears.

During Sunday night’s episode of The X Factor’s U.K. edition, a commercial aired that appears to tease new music from the Rolling in the Deep singer.

According to reports, viewers who caught the advert only saw a black screen with the lyrics for the ballad, as a voice was heard singing them.

“Hello, it’s me,” the lyrics read. “I was wondering / if after all these years / you’d like to meet / To go over everything / They say that time’s supposed to heal ya / But I ain’t done much healing.”

There’s been no word from Adele herself, but One Republic’s Ryan Tedder, who worked with Adele on her smash-hit album 21 and co-wrote the track “Rumor Has It,” seemingly thinks it’s her.


It’s been rumored that Adele’s next album is due out in November. Her record label has not confirmed anything, but reports say collaborators could include Tedder, as well as Danger Mouse, Max Martin, and singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr.
