Adele’s Illustrious Music.
At long last, Adele is finally back. The Grammy-winning singer released “Easy on Me,” the debut song from her upcoming and highly anticipated fourth studio album “30,” on Thursday evening. Her song was backed by a music video made by Xavier Dolan.
The video begins in the singer’s characteristic black-and-white silhouette, as she prepares to leave an empty house with a suitcase in a patent brown leather coat and sunglasses, similar to her previous music videos for “Hello” and “Someone Like You.” She gets in her car, puts in a cassette tape, glances in the rearview mirror to show off her characteristic cat eyeliner, and drives as the song begins to play.
As she sings through the piano progression, she passes by other young couples who are joyful and in love. The video changes to colour in the latter half of the song, showing Adele seated in a red-themed room with overturned furniture and sheets of music flying as she finishes the song. The film finishes with a small blooper of Adele laughing from the wind machine as the director says, “We’re keeping that,” to which Adele responds, “No, you’d never!”
The lyrics of “Easy on Me” appear to describe the narrative of an attempt to repair a relationship and how giving up does not always imply defeat.
The album will be available on November 19th. Despite the fact that Adele, born Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, is now 33, she has named each album after the age at which she composed it. Her most recent album, “25,” was published in 2015, when she was 27 years old.
The number 30 is significant in the singer’s life since she divorced her spouse, Simon Konecki, when she was 30 years old. They’ve been married for five years and have a kid named Angelo. According to Adele’s recent interview with British Vogue and a recent Instagram live Q&A, the album will be based on her journey to “self-redemption” and “divorce.”
“I feel like this record is self-destruction, self-reflection, and sort of self-redemption,” she explained to the newspaper. “However, I believe I am prepared.” This time, I truly want people to hear my side of the tale.”
Adele originally came to public attention in 2008, when she published her debut album, “19.” Songs such as “Make You Feel My Love” (a cover of Bob Dylan’s 1997 hit), “Chasing Pavements,” and “Hometown Glory” became major hits for the 19-year-old British vocalist. She allegedly penned “Hometown Glory” when she was just 16 years old.
Adele’s music career took off from there. Later that year, at the Brit Awards, she became the first woman to get the Critics’ Choice Award. Adele won best new artist and best female pop vocal performance at the 2009 Grammy Awards for “Chasing Pavements,” which was also nominated for song of the year and record of the year.
Adele had already established herself as a household figure in the music business by the time her second album, “21,” was released in 2011, with her unique voice, emotive song lyrics, and trademark beehive hairdo and cat eye makeup. “Someone Like You,” “Rolling in the Deep,” and “Set Fire to the Rain” are among her big songs from the album.
She was chosen to sing the theme song “Skyfall” for the 2012 James Bond film of the same name in 2012. For the song, she went on to win the Academy Award for best original song.
“25,” her most recent album, was released in November 2015. Her first song, “Hello,” was released in October of that year and was a financial and critical triumph.
Adele has been nominated for 18 Grammy Awards and has won 15 of them so far in her career. She won all of the prizes she was nominated for with “21” and “25,” including song of the year, record of the year, and album of the year.
Many fans assumed “25” was Adele’s final album since she told “The Late Late Show” presenter James Corden on her episode of “Carpool Karaoke” in 2016 that she believes in “trilogies” and that “25” was her final endeavour.
Adele has been increasingly active on social media as a new chapter in her life approaches, lately uploading a carousel of images on Instagram of herself looking gorgeous in a bespoke Schiaparelli gown with her new boyfriend, Rich Paul, a famous sports agent who handles big name athletes such as LeBron James.
She was also recently featured on the covers of both American and British Vogue, the first time the two publications collaborated on a single cover star.
