“Easy On Me” will be available on October 15th
Over the last few days, the internet has been in disarray over mysterious billboards popping up in major cities across the globe. From London and Paris to NYC and Rome, a golden 30 atop a blue background has started to appear, with many speculating Adele‘s long-awaited fourth album is incoming.
Famously known for her age-markered blockbuster releases, 19, 21, and 25, Adele’s highly-anticipated fourth studio album has been on the world’s wishlist for nearly six years. So an album called 30 would come as a welcomed gift, though not guaranteed.
While filming Carpool Karaoke with James Corden in 2016, Adele shared, “I want my fans to come on like a journey with me. And it’s one of the reasons I named my album after my age as well. It’s sort of polaroids, almost, of my life at that time,” later adding about 25, “this is the last album after my age. I believe in trilogies. The next one is just going to be ADELE.” A statement fans have thought about for years.
However, while she may believe in trilogies, the star’s fourth chapter is definitely on the way with Adele confirming her new single, “Easy On Me,” will be released on October 15th. Announced with a dramatic visual, Adele floors a classic car as music sheets fly out of the rear window over a piano melody.
With the video racking up over 10 million views already, it’s safe to say the world is on the edge of its seats, awaiting Adele’s return. Perfect timing as 25 celebrates its sixth anniversary on November 20th. See more on Soundazed.
