Hello to 30! Adele Is Back With New Music and We Can Hardly Contain Ourselves
The Queen is back! And I don’t want to be that person, but I did predict it. Adele released a snippet of her first song on Twitter after a six-year hiatus.
I can’t believe it’s been six whole years since we were blessed with Hello, but moving on. The 21-second black-and-white snippet shows the star putting a cassette with the song’s title, Easy On Me, into a car stereo. We also get to hear the song’s instrumental introduction, which goes for 13 seconds. It’s obvious Adele knew we wouldn’t be able to wait after she made the official announcement, which is why she’s releasing the song on Friday, October 15.
Fans have been speculating her return after a projection of the number 30 appeared in different places around the world. There were also rumours circulating on Twitter. The clip, which features the 33-year-old’s signature winged liner, was watched six million times in the first hour.
While we don’t have an official release date for the album just yet, we’re sure it will be arriving soon.
We already know the album is going to be a big one. Titled 30, the Grammy Award-winner is expected to sing about that specific time period in her life, one where a lot seemed to have happened.
“30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean into it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple of years and I’m still changing and that’s okay,” she wrote on Instagram back in 2019.
However, she did say back when she was promoting 25 that she will no longer be naming her album after her age, saying the next one will be titled “Adele.”
Guess for whatever reason she backtracked on that decision. Bring on 30!
