Adele has marked her 32nd birthday by sharing a rare photo of herself on social media.

In what was her first social media post of 2020, the singer delighted fans with a picture, which also shows her recent weight loss.

Earlier this year, while performing at a friend’s wedding, she hinted that new music may be on its way.

In an audio clip shared on social media, she was heard saying: “Expect my album in September.”

Her last album, 25, which included the number one single Hello, was released in November 2015.

Here is a selection of photos of the award-winning singer throughout the years and her rise to fame:
