Dust off your favorite sweater, your flip phone and old heartbreak, Adele is resurrecting the power ballad—just in time for the holidays! The beautiful Brit—who just announced that her latest album, “25” drops on Nov. 20—released “Hello”, the first song and video (starring "90210's" Tristan Wilds) off the upcoming album Friday morning.
The song, which uses haunting drums and wistful piano, has a newfound and thunderous strength. “Hello” is an emotional ballad with a bit of shock and awe. "Hello" is about visiting old pain with a new perspective: “They say time that’s supposed to heal ya / but I ain’t done much healin’,” she sings.
"25 is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened," Adele writes on her website.
It has been three years since Adele released the mega-success “21” in 2011, and went on to sell over 25 million copies and netted her whopping six Grammys, Billboard.com reports. In 2012, the untouchable singer recorded the theme song for the James Bond movie, “Skyfall,” and won Oscar for Best Original Song in 2013.
After experiencing the audible magic that is “Hello,” Adele should be ordering new shelves for more trophies, and fans should probably stock up on waterproof mascara.
