Adele Releases Long Awaited Video "Hello"
Five days ago a commercial aired during the UK's X Factor that set the internet ablaze. There was no product promoted, just a familiar voice singing the unfamiliar onscreen lyrics: "Hello. It's me. I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet to go over everything. They say that time's supposed to heal ya but I ain't done much healing..." Twitter and news sites went crazy over what appeared to be a clip of new Adele material, but her reps and record company stayed silent after previously denying that she was working on new material.
Yesterday, Adele confirmed that her new album, entitled '25', will be released next month on her Facebook account. She posted a letter about the direction of '25' along with the album's artwork.
Today Adele dropped the beautiful video for '25's lead single "Hello." As expected, it is a sepia toned masterpiece directed by Xavier Dolan. Get some tissues and thank the angels - we have been blessed by Adele once again.
