Review: Adele’s ‘Easy On Me’


Sydney Cole

It’s been almost 6 years since Adele, English singer and songwriter, wrote her last studio album, ’25’, and she has finally returned with a single and an album. Her single ‘Easy On Me’ was released on Friday, October 15, and her album will be released on November 19.

Adele famously writes about heartbreak in a slow, tear-jerking manner. In 2019, she filed for divorce from charity CEO, Simon Konecki, and they share a 9-year-old son, Angelo. Since Adele has given conformation that her new album, ’30’, will be about her experience with divorce, fans have anticipated that ’30’ will be the best of the bunch, and we can’t wait for it to be released.

The instrumental intro to the song is very familiar to Adele fans, for most of her deep songs, she uses a slow orchestral introduction to set the tone of the song.

The lyrics of the song take us into the depths of heartbreak, while telling us her perspective on the world. They also suggest that she really struggled to keep her relationship with Konecki afloat and asks her audience to understand.

There couldn’t have been a better start to ‘30’, and it seems to be living up to our expectations. Without a doubt the track list for ‘30’ will be full of heart-wrenching and meaningful songs just like this one.
