Prepare your tissues: Adele’s new album and ‘Red (Taylor's Version)’ are releasing one week apart

The sting of Scorpio season.

After a 5-year musical hiatus, Adele has announced that she will finally be releasing her fourth album '30' on Nov. 19.

In an Instagram post, the 32-year-old shared the "blistering truths" that will make the album what it is, as she underwent a divorce and had a son through its process.

"I was certainly nowhere near where I'd hoped to be when I first started it 3 years ago," the singer wrote. "Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have. And yet there I was knowingly -- willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!" 

She went on to say that she is now at the most peaceful time of her life.

"And so, I'm ready to finally put this album out."

Coincidentally, Adele's latest album will also be released in the same week as "Red, Taylor's Version," the rerecording of Taylor Swift's 2012 album "Red."

The original release date of "Red, Taylor's Version" was supposed to be on Nov. 19, but the singer opted for an earlier release of Nov. 12 as a treat to her fans. Many have also speculated that it was out of courtesy for Adele's comeback.

'Red, Taylor's Version' will be a 30-track spectacle that revisits a tumultuous and "red" part of Swift's life after her breakup with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. The album ushered in a more emotionally mature Swift after her 'Fearless' and 'Speak Now' eras.

With Adele and Taylor Swift's upcoming one-week-apart releases, the Internet can't help but point out the uncanny timing of their double emotional albums.

Whatever happens, just be ready with your tissues and (hopefully) unbroken hearts. If not, at least they're releasing 7 days apart for us to recuperate.
