Adele teased her long-awaited return to music on Tuesday (Oct. 5), and fans are already bursting at the seams with excitement. The British singer gave her devoted listeners a taste of what to expect from her comeback single, “Easy On Me,” by posting a 17-second teaser clip from the song’s official video.
The clip — which is filmed in Adele’s signature black and white color scheme — sees the singer inserting the cassette tape for “Easy on Me” into her vehicle’s tape deck. The song’s piano-driven instrumental plays as Adele drives down an open road, with sheet music flying out of the car’s window and onto the pavement behind her. Though the snippet does not feature any lyrics from the song, several fans of Adele’s are joking that the song has either saved their life, or prematurely sent them into depression.
Fans have been anticipating new music since the “Hello” singer began to place mysterious billboards that featured the number 30 in various areas of the world. New York, London and Paris also received the ’30’ treatment, with the number being projected onto the side of various landmarks in each of the cities. The billboards later served as a confirmation that Adele’s new era was coming after she later matched her Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube pages to match the billboards seen across the world. The fans deduced that the album will likely be titled 30 to follow the format of Adele’s previous releases 25, 21, and 19.
