Adele Belts New Song “Million Years Ago” on Today Show: Watch Now!

A holiday treat! On Wednesday, Nov. 25, Adele visited the Today show to open up about her album 25 and to perform her brand-new song "Million Years Ago."

Before belting out the soothing ballad, the Grammy winner, 27, sat down with Matt Lauer to talk about her success.

"It's pretty overwhelming, but it's incredible," she told the Today co-host. "I feel like I kind of knew what I was getting into this time because I had experienced the success of 21. Plus, I've got a kid, which is the most grounding thing, as I'm sure any parent will know." The Brit also revealed that when she gets nervous she "belches" loudly.


When it came time to sing her new song, Adele crooned:

"I know I'm not the only one who regrets the things they've done / Sometimes I just feel it's only me, who can stand the reflection that they see / I wish I could live a little more / Look up to the sky not face the floor / I feel like my life is flashing by/ All I can do is watch and cry / I miss the air I miss my friends / I miss my mother / I miss when life was a party to be thrown, but that was a million years ago."

Adele also noted that while many of her songs are about sorrow, she doesn't think that is necessarily depressing.

"I don't think sadness is always devastating," she told Lauer. "It can be quite uplifting as well."
