Adele is finally back. The singer just dropped her first new song in almost six years, “Easy On Me,” the first single from her upcoming album “30,” which drops November 19th.
“Go easy on me baby/I was still a child/Didn’t get the chance to/Feel the world around me,” she sings on the chorus. “I had no time to choose/What I chose to do/So go easy on me.”
The accompanying video, which starts out in black and white, has Adele packing up and leaving a home and then getting into a car and popping a cassette in, which is when the song starts. As she drives sheet music blows out the window, while she encounters various people from the town, including a just-married couple in another vehicle.
The song may also be giving fans a hint at what went wrong in her marriage to ex-Simon Konecki, with Adele singing how she and her partner were “stuck” in their ways and that she tried “hard” to make it work, but eventually had to “give up.”
