Adele’s first new music in six years is finally here.
The Skyfall singer has returned with a new single, Easy On Me, ahead of the release of her fourth album 30 (following on from 19, 21 and 25), out 19 November via Columbia.
The video for Easy On Me, shot last month in Quebec, finds Adele once again collaborating with Cannes Grand Prix winning director Xavier Dolan (Mommy, It’s Only The End Of The World).
“I was honestly hoping for this to happen,” says Dolan. “For me, there’s nothing stronger than artists reconnecting after years apart. I’ve changed. Adele’s changed. And this is an opportunity to celebrate how we’ve both evolved, and how we’ve also both remained faithful to our dearest themes. It’s all the same, but different.”
The video begins in the same house the pair used to shoot the video for Adele’s 2015 single Hello.
The song to be influenced by the pain the singer felt after her divorce from husband Simon Konecki.
30 is the first new music from Adele since the release of her third studio album 25 in November 2015. The record is produced with former collaborators Greg Kurstin, Max Martin, Shellback and Tobias Jesso Jr as well as new collaborators Inflo and Ludwig Göransson.
30 is available for pre-order at all physical and digital retailers globally. In addition, an exclusive limited cover edition will be available at HMV nationwide in the UK and an exclusive clear double vinyl will be available at HMV and independent retailers in the UK.
An Amazon white exclusive double vinyl will also be available globally. 30 and lead single Easy On Me will also be offered on cassette, exclusive to Adele’s D2C store while supplies last. The album will be available on all digital platforms.
