Adele celebrated her 31st birthday with a candid message about the past year, all while teasing some new music.

The musician posted several black-and-white photographs of herself celebrating, captioned with the words: “This is 31, thank f***ing god. 30 tried me so hard, but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all.”

“No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times,” she continued. ”I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.”

Adele’s representatives announced last month that she has split from her husband after three years of marriage.

The singer, who gave birth to their son Angelo in 2012, married charity entrepreneur Simon Konecki in a secret ceremony in 2016 after five years of dating. Her representatives said, despite separating, the pair were “committed to raising their son together lovingly” and asked for privacy.

“Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity,” Adele continued in her post. ”Learning to really truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realised that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually.”

She signed off the message with: “Bunch of f***ing savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you.”

Adele had previously been pictured entering a recording studio in New York City, sparking rumours she was working on new music.
