Adele releases music video for ‘Easy On Me’ download. Adele’s Easy On Me is an easy watch and listen, despite its lengthy run time of five minutes and 31 seconds. It pulls at the heartstrings in the same way as Hello and Someone Like You did for the British singer-songwriter.
The new single, which was released in the early hours of Friday morning, also features all the endearing tropes found in an Adele music video – from billowing leaves, curtains and torn-out sheets of paper, to a house in disarray.
What’s different this time, though, is the disorder in the artist’s personal life, which is reflected in the lyrics and the pain threading through her sonorous voice. Easy On Me represents the “absolute mess and inner turmoil” the singer experienced during her 2019 divorce from charity chief executive husband Simon Konecki, with whom she has a son.
The singer has also said that 30 – the album that Easy On Me is a part of and that is expected to be released on Friday, November 19 – narrates how “I painstakingly rebuilt my house and my heart”. And this first single is evocative of her rebuilding journey: You can’t deny / How hard I’ve tried / I changed who I was / To put you both first / But now I give up.
