Adele comeback single Easy On Me review

Falling slowly and undramatically out of love with the father of your child, breaking up amicably, and buying him a house across the street from you is hardly standard fodder for a break-up ballad. But Adele has never really gone in for broad-strokes emotions. On “Easy On Me”, her first single in six years, the world’s finest chronicler of heartbreak is neither victim nor villain; instead, she addresses her nine-year-old son, attempting to explain to him why she chose to take apart the life he knew.

“Go easy on me, baby,” sings the 33-year-old in that big, raspy voice – it feels good to have it back – over an elegiac piano redolent of Taylor Swift and Justin Vernon’s in “Exile”. “I was still a child/ Didn’t get the chance to feel the world around me.”

Read Alexandra Pollard’s review of Adele’s comeback single, “Easy On Me”, in full here.

Adele reveals her prized possession is a piece of Celine Dion’s chewing gum

Last week we were treated to an interesting (kind of gross) revelation, that Adele’s “prized possession” is a used bit of chewing gum from Celine Dion.

Sitting down with Vogue for their 73 Questions video series, Adele unveiled a framed piece of the Canadian singer’s chewing gum.

She said about the gum: “It’s pretty amazing.”

Adele also revealed that James Corden obtained it for her: “James Corden — who’s a friend of mine but also does Carpool Karaoke, which I did — did one with her. He knew how much of a fan I was of her and he made her spit her gum into a piece of paper and she framed it for me.”

The “Easy on Me” singer added: “That’s my proudest possession.”

Adele fans react after noticing easter eggs in new music video for Easy on Me

Adele’s new music video reflects on the past in more ways than one thanks to the references to previous singles.

A lot has happened in the British singer’s life since she last released music, including a divorce from Simon Konecki, which was finalised earlier this year.

However, Adele has poured everything into her forthcoming record, 30, the first song of which was released on Friday (15 October) at midnight.

Fans were quick to point out that Adele referenced previous songs in the video for “Easy on Me”, which, at the time of writing, has been viewed on YouTube almost 12 million times in just eight hours.
