LONDON (REUTERS) - The first single from Adele's new album, 25, a title she announced in a tweet earlier this week, will be released on Friday (Oct 23) along with a video, the best-selling British singer's record label said.

The single is entitled Hello and the accompanying video, filmed in the countryside around Montreal, was directed by Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan, whose films include Mommy andTom At The Farm, XL Recordings said in a statement on Thursday.

It said the full 11-track album would be out on Nov 20.

Adele's last album, 21, released in 2011, became a runaway hit worldwide.

It sold more than 11 million copies in the United States and was the best-selling album of the decade to date in Britain, according to industry statistics.

Adele won six Grammy awards for 21 and an Academy Award for her theme song for the last James Bond movie, Skyfall.
