Adele’s 30, one of the most hotly-anticipated albums of 2021, is now out, and the singer is making it available in multiple formats — and multiple limited editions.
Demand for the album is expected to be high — Easy On Me, the album’s first single, broke streaming records on every platform, garnering 24 million plays on Spotify alone on the day of its release. In her new cover story for Rolling Stone, Adele seems ready for the pressure that comes with topping her last album, 25, revealing that she’s excited for fans to hear her new music.
Like all modern albums, you can stream Adele’s 30 on services like Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Qobuz, and Amazon Music worldwide the day of its release, but it’s also available in a handful of deluxe physical editions through select retailers. These versions of the album come with extras that won’t be available anywhere else. In some cases, that includes bonus tracks that aren’t going to be on streaming services, possibly ever.
Whether you’re an analog or digital music listener, the Adele album bundles below are each available from a single retailer, and supplies are going to be limited. That’s especially true for vinyl, which has been more difficult to produce due to supply chain issues as a result of Covid-19.
If you’re an Adele fan — or just a record collector — here are all the different versions of 30 to add to your music collection. Order these now before the limited-edition sets are sold out online.
1. Amazon Exclusive White Vinyl Edition
Amazon is offering a two LP version of 30 in white vinyl. It has the exact same same track list as the standard CD version of the album. Amazon is also offering a version of this double album set in black if you’d prefer the classic look of albums on your turntable.
2. Target Exclusive CD Version With Bonus Tracks
Target’s exclusive version of 30 is a CD package that contains three bonus not found on the standard or LP versions of the album. This includes the non-LP tracks Wild Wild West and Can’t Be Together, plus a version of Easy On Me featuring Chris Stapleton with a new arrangement. This version 30 is currently $2 cheaper than normal ahead of its release.
