Hello, it’s Adele. On Wednesday, the “Someone Like You” singer posted a rare photo dump on Instagram to mark her 33rd birthday. Captioned “Thirty Free” (A/N: we love cheesy wordplay in this house!), three makeup-free pics show a happy and healthy Adele showing off her tats—the planet Saturn on her forearm and the word “paradise” on her left hand—frolicking in the ocean, and spinning in a flowy tie dye midi dress. Together with her appearance at Daniel Kaluuya’s Oscars afterparty (you know, the guy who won an Academy Award and thanked his parents for having sex during his acceptance speech, no I will never let go of this moment), the singer appears to be as carefree as ever.
Before attending Kaluuya’s party, Adele had been keeping a pretty low profile, with her last super public appearance being the host of Saturday Night Live in October. But that doesn’t mean she’s not revving up for any new album releases. Apparently, new music is coming and it’s “amazing,” according to close friend and comedian Alan Carr. "I've heard some tracks on it," he told RuPaul's Drag Race U.K. judge Michelle Visage for Grazia UK back in January. "Oh my gosh, it's so amazing. It's so amazing."

"I said to her, I said, 'That voice is like an old friend,'" he said. "Because there are some people in the charts who sound a bit like Adele and you go, 'Oh, they sound Adele'' and then when you hear Adele's voice again, you go, 'Oh no, there's only one. There's only one Adele.'"
