The GRAMMY winner released her second single, "When We Were Young," off her upcoming album, 25, on Tuesday morning, along with the music video. In the video, Adele performs the emotional song at The Church Studios in London, England, where some of her album was also recorded.
Prior to its release, the 27-year-old singer previewed her new track during a clip of her appearance on 60 Minutes
Australia. The tune comes after the success of "Hello"
and is sure to have fans anticipating the full release of 25
on Nov. 20.
Adele belts out the song in the studio, which has the British crooner once again looking back on an intense relationship. "Let me photograph you in this life, in case it is the last time," she sings. "So it might be exactly like we were before we realized; We were sad of getting old, it made us restless; Oh, I'm so mad I'm getting old, it makes me reckless."
On Monday, she spoke with SiriusXM about the song. "It was based on us being older, and being at a party at this house, and seeing everyone that you've ever fallen out with, everyone that you've ever loved, everyone that you've never loved, and stuff like that, where you can't find the time to be in each other lives," Adele said of the track, which was co-written by Tobias Jesso Jr. "And you're all thrown together at this party when you're like 50, and it doesn't matter and you have so much fun and you feel like you're 15 again. So that's the kind of vibe of it really."
Adele revealed her favorite lyric on the song is: "You look like a movie / You sound like a song / My god this reminds me of when we were young."
