In just a matter of days, Adele will release her highly anticipated third album, 25. If the reception for the album is anything like it was for the first single “Hello,” then she’ll break the Internet once again as she did a few weeks ago. In an effort to make sure that happens, the one-time Bounce-Worthy sensation is whetting appetites with another taste from the project with the song “When We Were Young.”
Recorded live at The Church Studios in London for Australia’s edition of 60 Minutes, Adele was flanked by musicians as she held court and effortlessly sang the power ballad. With “When We Were Young,” Adele and co-writer Tobias Jesso, Jr. penned a song with similar themes of love, loss and remembrance much like “Hello” that may give you a major case of the blues and find you caught up in your feelings. Is it any wonder, with lyrics like, “You sound like a movie, you look like a song / My God, this reminds me of when we were young”? As you press play on the video to watch Adele belt out her latest, be sure to have a box of Kleenex nearby.
Get ready for an onslaught of all things Adele this week when 25 drops on Friday, November 20th and the singer takes the stage of Saturday Night Live as the musical guest on Saturday, November 21st.
