Not only is Adele back to owning the airwaves before her new album has even dropped, but she’s now extending her reach to the magazine world as well.

The singer announced over Twitter yesterday that she will be guest editing the first issue of the revived Observer Music magazine, which will be published with its parent newspaper on Nov. 15. Not only did she have a hand in editing the issue, but she will also grace its cover.


A preview of the cover promises candid revelations from Adele about why she took a break from the spotlight after the overwhelming success of her last album, 21, as she braces herself for another go at world domination when her latest 25 drops on Nov. 20.

The Guardian shared a portion of the interview this morning (Nov. 11), in which Adele describes the heightened fame that came with a charts-busting album as "charming. It’s powerful. It draws you in. Really, it’s harder work resisting it." With 25 predicted to match -- if not exceed -- the success of its predecessor, she may be forced to finally end the resistance.
