After nearly six years, the beautiful melodies of Adele have finally returned with her new single “Easy On Me.” But that’s not all. Adele also shared the song’s Xavier Dolan-directed music video, which was shot in Quebec and features the same house seen in the visuals for the singer’s 2015 hit “Hello.”
“Easy On Me” is set to appear on her upcoming fourth studio album, 30.
About a week before the single’s release, Adele shared a clip of the song’s music video to YouTube and social media, effectively setting the internet on fire for a few hours as fans reacted to the singer’s return. She also previewed another clip of the song on Instagram live over the weekend.
Also, in the days leading up to “Easy On Me,” Adele graced the cover of Vogue where she talked about music, the album, and where she is in life.
When discussing the new album, Adele said that it’s special to her and one she wants to hold close forever.
“It’s sensitive for me, this record, just in how much I love it,” she explained. “I always say that 21 doesn’t belong to me anymore. Everyone else took it into their hearts so much. I’m not letting go of this one. This is my album. I want to share myself with everyone, but I don’t think I’ll ever let this one go.”
Talking about how this album differs from her previous ones, Adele explained how the overarching theme has changed.
“I realized that I was the problem,” she says. “Cause all the other albums are like, ‘You did this! You did that! Fuck you! Why can’t you arrive for me?’ Then I was like: ‘Oh, shit, I’m the running theme, actually. Maybe it’s me!’”
