Adele has thanked fans for the “ride” following the release of her new album 30.
The 33-year-old music superstar’s fourth studio effort launched on Friday to widespread critical acclaim.
Celebrating her initial success, Adele shared a photo on Twitter showing her in the recording studio with her hands thrown up in the air.
The image, which showed the singer sat next to a glass of white wine, was captioned: “It was a ride, so I threw my arms up and screamed! Love you all.”
Adele wore a black turtleneck and gold hoop earrings, with her nails painted black and her strawberry blonde hair tied back in a ponytail.
The post attracted more than 750,000 likes in half and hour, with fans describing her in the comments section as a “queen” and “inspiration”.
Tracks including My Little Love, Oh My God, I Drink Wine and Hold On have been praised by fans and critics for their vulnerability and old-fashioned sound recalling the golden age of Hollywood.
The album details the breakdown of her marriage to charity boss Simon Konecki, with who she shares a son, Angelo.
Sunday will see ITV broadcast a special concert special filmed at the London Palladium, titled An Audience With Adele.
