NEW ALBUM: ADELE | 30 (TARGET EXCLUSIVE)
Adele’s "30," one of the most hotly-anticipated albums of 2021, is now out, and the singer is making it available in multiple formats — and multiple limited editions. One of those is the "Target Exclusive," version of "30" which is a CD package that contains three bonuses not found on the standard or LP versions of the album. This includes the non-LP tracks "Wild Wild West" and "Can’t Be Together," plus a version of "Easy On Me" featuring Chris Stapleton with a new arrangement. Demand for the album is expected to be high — "Easy On Me," the album’s first single, broke streaming records on every platform, garnering 24 million plays on Spotify alone on the day of its release. In her new cover story for Rolling Stone, Adele seems ready for the pressure that comes with topping her last album, "25," revealing that she’s excited for fans to hear her new music. Within hours of its release Friday, Adele’s highly anticipated album "30" rocketed to the top of the iTunes chart, overtaking Taylor Swift newly-released re-recorded album, "Red (Taylor’s Version)" and setting the stage for another blockbuster hit for the British singer after a lead single ‘Easy On Me’ smashed streaming records and topped the charts worldwide. The singer’s previous album, "25," sold a record-breaking 3.38 million copies in the U.S. in its first week and its lead single ‘Hello’ also smashed sales records.
