Adele is back in a big way after a nearly three-year absence, performing her new single "Hello" as part of a TV special set to air later this month in Britain.

The 27-year-old sang the record-breaking ballad for an hour-long BBC special with host Graham Norton aptly titled Adele at the BBC.

In a teaser for the special, set to air on Nov. 20 (which is also the release date of her highly anticipated album 25), the London-born singer belts out the lyrics to the emotional song.

Adele released "Hello," the first single off 25, on October 23. It is the first song to rack up a million U.S. downloads in its first week.

The clip also includes a first look at her interview with Norton. The "Someone Like You" singer discusses the new album, her nearly three-year absence from the music scene and her trouble handling her own social media accounts.

"It was that thing of do I or don't I want to go back to my music. Obviously I do," the 27-year-old said of her comeback. "I just wanted to make sure that everything was in place for me to do it so that I could do it properly, you know?

"I can't do anything else. This is all that I like doing."

Although her relationship with music is thriving, Adele said her relationship with her Twitter account is another story.

"I'm not a drinker anymore, but when Twitter first came out I was, like, drunk tweeting," the 27-year-old said after revealing that she's no longer allowed access to her account.

"I nearly put my foot in it quite a few times. So, yeah, my management decided that you have to go through, like, two people and then it has to be signed off by someone.

"But they're all my tweets. No one writes my tweets, they just post them for me."
