She’s done it again. For a young woman of just 27-years-old, Adele sings like a woman with the life experiences of an octogenarian. Her voice is seasoned and soulful but still clear and punctuating. I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to call her something like this generation’s Teena Marie.
It’s been four years since her last studio album. And earlier this week the singer confirmed, via Twitter, that her album 25 would indeed be released this year.
And in an act that should be lauded as nothing short of a humanitarian effort, Adele released the video for her first single, “Hello.”
The song is about reaching out to the one who got away in order to heal…and, let’s be real, see if he’s still checking for you.
Tristan Wilds also stars in the video as Adele’s love interest. Wilds is so adorable, we’re always happy to see him. Even though he’s not delivering pages of dialogue, you still see the range of emotion in his face.
Anyway, listen to the song, check out the visuals and let us know what you’re thinking. Are you ready for this album or nah?
