It’s finally here: Adele new music!

Almost six years after the release of her last studio album “25,” the British singer-songwriter dropped a new song, “Easy on Me,” along with an accompanying music video.

In the song, Adele croons about the passage of time and feeling stuck in a relationship over a gentle piano melody. The music video, which starts off in black-and-white before transitioning into color, sees her on a phone call on a windy day before getting in a truck and driving down a country road. As she listens to a cassette tape, sheets of music fly from her backseat.

She sings “Go easy, baby!” She sings, “I was still young / I didn’t feel the world around/ There wasn’t time for me to decide what to do/ So take it easy.

“Easy on Me” comes a day after Adele announced on social media she’s “ready to finally” release her next album “30” on Nov. 19. Adele announced that the album was almost three years in the making.

“I’ve learned a lot of blistering truths about myself along the way,” she shared in a statement on Twitter and Instagram Wednesday. “I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones. Discovered genuinely useful and wholesome mentalities to lead with, and I feel like I’ve finally found my feeling again. I’d go so far as to say that I’ve never felt more peaceful in my life.”

Since her last studio album dropped in 2015, Adele married and divorced Simon Konecki. In her statement, she referred to her album as the “friend” who got her through the “most turbulent period of my life.”

“And then, that friend checked in on my even though I had stopped checking in with them due to being so overwhelmed by my grief. “This album is the story of how I have painstakingly rebuilt both my home and my heart over these years,” she wrote.

On Oct. 5, Adele teased “Easy On Me” on with a 21-second clip from the video. The teaser video was made after billboards featuring the number “30”, which were appearing all around the world in the days preceding it, sparked speculation amongst fans that Adele would soon be releasing her album. Adele’s previous albums have all had numbers as titles, referencing her age, starting with debut album “19” in 2008, followed by 2011’s “21” and 2015’s “25.”
