Easy On Me review: Adele puts soul on the line in haunting comeback single

To say the whole world has been preparing for Adele’s new single is a total understatement, as thousands are eagerly watching the Midnight premiere of Easy On Me.

After six years of waiting for new music, the 33-year-old did not disappoint and put her soul on the line in the ballad, while her feelings poured over a piano accompaniment.

Previously, she said she wrote it for son Angelo to explain her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki, and there is no doubt that she is undauntedly honest in the lyrics as she begs to be understood why they are leaving yourself first.

“I changed who I was to put you two first, but now I’m giving up,” she chimes before pleading, “Take care of me, baby / I was just a child / I didn’t have any.” Chance to feel the world around me. ‘

She revealed what we can expect from her upcoming album, due out November 19, and said she went into the studio for her son, making it her most emotional release to date.

She confirmed that 30 will be with us on November 19th and wrote on Instagram: “I learned many glowing truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers, but also wrapped myself in new ones.

‘I’ve discovered really useful and healthy mentalities to lead with and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I would even go so far as to say that I have never felt so peaceful in my life. ‘

That calm shines through in the music video that begins in her almost soothing voice at the end of a phone call as she prepares to leave home for the last time.

However, instead of indulging in the heartache, she seems happy and free as she moves into the next chapter of her life, with her signature laugh making a welcome appearance in the final moments.

Easy On Me is more reduced than other songs from her catalog, there is no crashing chorus like Rolling In The Deep or Hello, but in a way it hits harder than anything she has presented us so far.

It’s knowing and powerful, and Adele is just as persuasive as ever.
