AceShowbiz - Adele has officially returned with new music. Announced just a little over one week ago, her new single titled "Easy on Me" was debuted in full on Thursday, October 14, ending the long wait for Adele's new song since she dropped her third album "25" in 2015.
Released along with the music video, the new song appears to hint at why she divorced her former husband Simon Konecki. "Go easy on me baby/ I was still a child/ Didn't get the chance to/ Feel the world around me/ I had no time to choose/ What I chose to do/ So go easy on me," she sings in the chorus.
Adele eventually chooses to leave behind the failed relationship and move on as she continues in the second verse, "There ain't no room/ For things to change/ When we are both so deeply/ Stuck in our ways/ You can't deny how hard I have tried/ I changed who I was/ To put you both first/ But now I give up."
The clip, meanwhile, sees Adele packing up and leaving her house. It follows her on a road trip as the video transitions from black and white to colorful scenes. She appears to mark the end of her "Hello" era as the house she is selling in the video is also the one featured in the visuals for her 2015 hit.
Adele previously said that her divorce from Simon inspired her a lot in making her upcoming album "30". During a recent Instagram Live, she was asked what the album would be based on. "Divorce, babe, divorce," she answered. She added, "Writing my music has been really therapeutic, for sure." Then in a Twitter statement released on Wednesday, she described the album as her "ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life."
Adele announced her split from Simon in April 2019 after almost eight years together and two years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in March this year. They share a son together, 8-year-old Angelo James. She is currently dating sports agent Rich Paul.
Adele's fourth studio album "30" is set to arrive on November 19. The album was produced by Max Martin, Shellback and Greg Kurstin, who also has a writing credit on "Easy on Me".
Among Adele's fans who were excited over the release of her new song was Lil Nas X. The rapper took to Twitter to gush, "easy on me is so good. it's so crazy to think the last time adele released new music I was sitting on stan twitter. I feel like i'm 15 again."
