Today, 33-year-old Adele presented her first song Easy On Me after a six-year hiatus and a video for it – the song is dedicated to the singer's divorce, which she experienced in 2019. This single was released a month before the official release of the third studio album of the singer called “30”, which, in addition to this song, included 11 new tracks. The album is scheduled to be released on November 19.
The new five-minute music video is directed by renowned Canadian filmmaker and Cannes Film Festival winner Xavier Dolan. He had previously filmed Adele's music video for her 2015 hit Hello. In less than a day, almost 19 million YouTube users from all over the world have watched the singer's new video for the song Easy On Me. In the new single, Adele turns to her ex-spouse, as well as their nine-year-old son Angelo, and tries to explain to the little boy why she and his father can no longer be together.
The plot of the new music video Adele returns to the events that happened in the video Hello (in that video, the heroine of the video returns to her old house and is nostalgic for the past relationship). The singer again appears in the same house in Quebec, but this time sells and leaves it. Before leaving her native walls forever, Adele looks out the window for a long time, and then with a small suitcase leaves by car.

On the way, Adele carefully peers into painfully familiar places and says goodbye to the past. Another symbol of goodbye in the video is a sharp change from black and white to color: in an instant everything in the frame is painted in bright colors, which serves as a hint that life goes on and starts from scratch.
The network reacted violently to the release of Adele's first single in six years. Many immediately began to make funny memes, in which they ridiculed the fact that they had been waiting for the singer's comeback for so long that they even managed to get old during this time. The fans also joked about the fact that with the release of her third album “30”, traditionally named after her age, Adele, after a long lull, would overshadow the entire music industry in one fell swoop.
“I'm in 2015. I'm in 2021”.
“Adele Releases Her New Album: Adele – The Music Industry”.
“That's how I look after listening to Adele's new single.”
“Adele made me miss people I've never even met.”
“Taylor Swift and Adele tell me their life stories – while me.”
During the six years of hiatus in Adele's career, many changes have occurred in her personal life. In 2017, she married the father of her son Angelo (he was born in 2012), businessman Simon Konecki, two years later the couple announced their divorce. After parting with her husband, the singer disappeared from the radar for a long time and did not appear in the light. Adele began recording her new album “30” just in this difficult period of her life and threw out all the pain and disappointment from the divorce there.
During the first year after the divorce, Adele lost almost 45 kilograms. Some have linked these dramatic changes in appearance to the stress of the breakup. The singer herself later explained that in fact she had lost weight for medical reasons and solely for the sake of her son.
This summer, rumors appeared in the press about Adele's new romance with 39-year-old American sports agent Rich Paul. For a long time, the singer did not give any comments on this matter, and shortly before the release of the third album, she nevertheless confirmed her relationship with Paul. In her first interview in five years, Adele admitted that she is very happy with Rich.
I had dates before Rich, but the guys hated it. It was stressful for them when they were seen on the street with me. While it does not bother him at all. He is beautiful. He's so damn funny and smart
