The wait is over! The one and only Adele is finally BACK after three years with new music, and it all starts her new song "Hello." The single is the first from her long-awaited upcoming album 25, and is available for download on iTunes now. The full album, which was listed by Billboard as #1 on their list of most anticipated albums, is set to hit stores everywhere on November 20th, and is described by Adele herself as a makeup record. "I'm making up with myself. making up for lost time. making up for everything I ever did and never did.”
Even though it's been several years since we've heard from Adele, "Hello" was SO worth the wait. The powerhouse ballad that is this track showcases her incredible vocals, accompanied by a somber piano melody, then building up with soft percussion. The emotional lyrics include, "Hello from the other side/I must've called a thousand times to tell you/I'm sorry, for everything that I've done/But when I call you never seem to be home."
About Adele's music video for "Hello"
Talk about making a comeback! Not only did Adele release her first new song since 2012's James Bond theme "Skyfall," but she's also giving us a music video for the new single.
The music video for "Hello" was filmed in the Montreal countryside, and was directed by Canada's own Xavier Dolan. The black and white clip finds Adele -- who looks STUNNING -- coming back to an old home where she used to live with a former love, as she reflects on the past and what brought them to their ultimate split. The visual definitely brings her powerful lyrics about trying to make up with someone she's broken up with to life.
