Adele is officially back.
The singer released a video teaser for the new single “Easy On Me” this Tuesday, October 5th, on social media, as well as a release date: October 15th. In the black-and-white clip, the star inserts a cassette into a car’s player, looks into the rearview mirror, and turns up the volume. That’s where you hear the soft notes of a piano playing in the background. Then, as the artist drives down the road, scores fly from one of the vehicle’s rear windows.
The material arrives shortly after billboards with the number “30” began appearing in cities around the world, giving rise to rumors that the artist was preparing to release an album later this year. Remember that Adele’s previous albums all have numbers as titles, a reference to the star’s age, starting with her debut, “19” (2008). “21” (2011) and “25” (2015) followed.
