Easy On Me, a sparse and sad piano ballad, was released at midnight UK time, giving fans their first taste of her upcoming “divorce album,” 30.
That will be the follow-up to her critically acclaimed albums 19, 21, and 25.
Adele explains her decision to divorce her husband in 2019 in Easy On Me, asking for forgiveness from her kid and ex-husband.
She sings, “I changed who I was to put you both first,” but now she surrenders.
Shivers run down your spine as you remember that moment, so raw and unpolished.
Adele’s voice is both regretful and determined.
The song was reportedly composed for Adele’s upcoming album as the first track, and it dated from the year of her divorce. Her vocal, forceful and fragile at the same time, reflects the immediacy of those emotions.
The song, on the other hand, has a generous tone. Adele is reaching out to those who have been affected by her actions, but Easy On Me is also a large woollen blanket wrapped around the loneliness and grief of anyone who has had a life-altering break-up.
