Hit maker Adele has broken her year-long Twitter silence – but, to some fans disappointment, it’s not the announcement of new music.

Her last album, 25, came out in 2015, with fans desperate for new material from the singer nearly five years later.

Rumours have been swirling that Adele’s been back in the recording studio and would soon grace our ears with her voice once more, but her latest tweet was a far cry from an album announcement.

Instead, the Skyfall singer tweeted for the first time since December last year to get fans to register themselves to vote – so they can cast their choice in the upcoming general election .

She hasn’t said which party or candidate she’ll be supporting, only that she wants as many of her fans as possible to register.

“Don’t forget to Register to Vote before midnight tonight UK,” she wrote, along with a link to the registration page.

Fans, though, were momentarily sent into overdrive by the tweet notification, thinking it must mean she’d announced new music.

“This notification gave me a lil heart attack,” one wrote.

Another bluntly demanded: “Where is the album Adele?”

A third could hardly contain themselves, penning: “WE NEED THE DAMN ALBUM.”

A fourth was rather more polite: “Ma’am we need an album.”

“Don’t forget to come back here and grace us with your powerful voice and lyrics,” one gushed, “We are here waiting for you darling.”

It’s not the first time she’s had fans on the edge of their seats.

A tweet earlier this year – which turned out to be fake – claimed Adele would be dropping new music at the start of November.

Other music-world stars have been vocal about the general election as well, including grime legend Stormzy and former One Direction member Zayn Malik.

Zayn told fans that their vote is important and urged them to register, while Stormzy has been very open about his backing of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn .

“It is very very very important that every single person who reads this goes and registers to vote,” the rapper penned.

He added: “I will be registering to vote and I will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn.

“There are several reasons as to why I’m voting for him – I would be here all day if I began to list them…but in my 26 years of life I have never trusted politicians or relied on them to be the bearers of hope or the righteous people that we’ve needed them to be.”
