After six years of not releasing any new music, Adele has announced her new single, titled “Easy on Me.”
The singer-songwriter released a clip teasing her latest work on Tuesday morning, which reveals that the single will be released on Oct. 15. See that moody clip below.
Fans have been waiting with bated breath for the powerhouse British vocalist to make her comeback. Though she hasn’t released fresh music since 2015’s smash 25, Adele has been teasing a new LP for almost a year now. In the pre-pandemic days, it seemed she had eyes on a September 2020 release, but we can all guess what happened there.
More recently, Adele’s social handles and website were updated (a typical sign of an impending announcement), and mysterious billboards and projections displaying “30” began showing up across the globe. It’s likely that 30 will be the title of Adele’s next album, following the pattern of 25, the incomparable 21, and 19.
Though the new LP will be released as Adele enjoys the early parts of her 33rd year, it was apparently largely inspired by the beginning of her 30s.
Although Adele is only officially teasing a single, fans are already speculating on an album release date. At the end of September, Taylor Swift shifted up the release date of Red (Taylor’s Version) by one week to November 12th; a day later, the 30 billboards appeared. Some connected the two and are guessing Swift moved her due date so that Adele could have November 19th all to herself.
