She’s done it again. With just days to go until the release of her highly anticipated new album, 25, Adele treated fans to another gorgeous song, “When We Were Young,” the music video for which she debuted on YouTube on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
The video, filmed at The Church Studios, shows the “Hello” songstress performing the ballad with a live band and backup singers. Rocking a velvet blazer, matching skirt, and black camisole, she stands in front of a microphone and belts out the tune as a camera pans around the studio.
“You look like a movie / You sound like a song / My god, this reminds me / Of when we were young,” she croons. “Let me photograph you in this light / In case it is the last time / Though we might be exactly like we were before we realized / We were sad of getting old / It made us restless / It was just like a movie / It was just like a 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’s lives,” Adele, 27, said of the track during a SiriusXM interview on Nov. 16.
“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.”
“When We Were Young” is the second song from the 21 hitmaker’s upcoming album, which drops on Nov. 20. She released the first single, “Hello,” in late October, along with a music video costarring 90210 actor Tristan Wilds.
