Adele – Hello (Single Premiere)
The long-awaited return of pop’s biggest powerhouse Adele is upon us with her brand new single “Hello”, accompanying video and a slew of new information on her upcoming album “25”.
Four years since her immensely successful sophomore album “21”, British singer/songwriter Adele is ready to obliterate the charts again and bring credible pop music back to the forefront of the music scene with her new music.
Yes, Adele may have kicked off her third era with another harrowing ballad however “Hello” is a superior example of its kind and a true testament to the singer’s powerful voice effortlessly turning what could have been a boring song, in another artists hands, into a compelling composition. “Hello” was written by Adele and Greg Kurstin, who also produced the record and is a slow-burner, predominantly piano-driven with the singer yearning to reconcile a relationship. The track builds up to an awe-inspiring close with the production amped up to a cinematic level and Adele soaring for a memorable finish.
The accompanying sepia-toned music video, directed by Xavier Dolan, was shot in the countryside near Montreal with Adele revisiting an old home full of memories reminiscing about a past relationship with her ex, played by Mack Wilds. Interspersed between the flashbacks of how their relationship came to a demise are stunning shots of Adele in the wilderness with the singer looking sorrowful about her past mistakes.
Adele’s highly anticipated third album “25” is due for release 20th November with contributions from Danger Mouse, Max Martin, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Ryan Tedder. Watch the video for “Hello” below:
