British singer Adele released her latest single, "Hello," from her highly anticipated album, 25, on Friday, with an accompanying black and white video.

Adele announced the release of the track—her first single in four years, following her hugely successful album, 21—in a post on Instagram, revealing the album's release date as November 20.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1 this morning, Adele started to cry as "Hello" was played for the first time. "I obviously want people to like it," she said, just before the song's debut. "I knew this would be the first thing everyone heard from me."

When she arrived at the BBC studio, Adele said she was anxious, saying: "I feel so sick. I'm so nervous."

In posts on Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, Adele explained the themes of her third album: "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."
