It’s been 5 years since Adele last produced a hit, but she has come back stronger than ever in this new release. She claims to have poured her life and soul into this latest album. “I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago. And yet there I was knowingly - willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil,” she says in one of her latest Instagram posts concerning her new album.
The first insight we got into her album is her new song, “Easy on me,” which will take us on a rollercoaster of emotions and walk us through the “grief” and “inner turmoil” that has occurred in Adele’s life these past 3 years. She describes the album as her “ride or die throughout the most turbulent period of my life.” This album’s title refers to her age, 30, and her recent divorce. In the latest Rolling Stone magazine, Adele shares that the album walks us through the different emotions she felt while going through her divorce, finding out that there were no heroes nor villains in her situation and that she was just changing, finding out who she was. “I was embarrassed. No one made me feel embarrassed, but you feel like you didn’t do a good job.”

Her new song, “Easy on me,” left all of her fans heartbroken, including myself. María Jiménez, a freshman and a hardcore Adele fan, says that “her songs make me feel free, especially this one; I don't know how to explain it, it's hard. I feel like you can express yourself and feel understood through her music.” She says that she expects the album to be great and can't wait for it to come out.
The song is also partly written through her son’s perspective, and once you understand the lyrics it hurts in a devastatingly beautiful way. Although I don't consider myself a hardcore Adele fan, this song is a masterpiece in all its forms. It certainly has me holding on by a thread, waiting for her album to come out!
