Want to cry in your cubicle?

Adele released a new song called "When We Were Young."

"My God, this reminds me of when we were young," she sings.

This is the second single from her album "25." 

Her first was "Hello."

"Hello" broke one-day streaming records on Spotify with 4 million plays in a day.

Adele also broke the Vevo record held by Taylor Swift with 27.7 million views in 24 hours. Swift's "Bad Blood" raked in 20.1 million views in a day.

It was the first single in history to sell more than 1 million downloads in a week.

Industry experts project "25" to sell 1.4 million to 2 million copies in its first week.

It's expected be the highest sales week for a female artist since Britney Spears' "Oops! ... I Did It Again."

"25" will be released Friday, Nov. 20.
