The actress who won Best New Artist at 2009 Grammy Awards takes an early-morning walk looking lost and torn.
Adele is finally set to debut her long-overdue music video for her single "Someone Like You". In anticipation of the premiere, the British popstar releases an official sneak peek to the clip directed by Jake Nava (Kanye West, Britney Spears, Shakira).
In the short black-and-white snippet, the "Rolling in the Deep" hitmaker is seen taking a stroll on the street alone while wailing over her lost love. "I heard that you're settled down/ That you found a girl and you're married now," she croons.
The video was shot entirely on location in Paris during the very early morning hours. "The location evokes style and romance," Jake explained, "and shooting early in the morning allows you to focus on Adele in this lonely and emotional space."
"Someone Like You" is the second No. 1 single from Adele's latest effort "21". It's written in the wake of her break-up with the man she thought she would marry. "When I found out he does want that with someone else, it was just the horrible-est feeling ever. But after I wrote it, I felt more at peace. It set me free," she once said.
Despite the split which left her heart broken, Adele has become friends again with her ex. "It's alright, I know what I'm doing. Enough time has gone by. Now with what's going on with the album around the world, it's important to be able to share it with him because it's marvellous what has happened," she stated.
The music video is going to premiere on MTV and VEVO this Thursday, September 29th at 7:56 PM EDT.
