Adele brings the heartache with ‘Easy on Me’

Hello Adele, and thank you for making our weekend a little sadder (in a good way).

On Friday (Oct. 15), the British songstress finally (FINALLY) released her first new song in five years.

Titled “Easy on Me,” the song is precisely what we’ve grown to expect from the singer. The track, which was teased earlier this week, gives fans a brutally honest look at her relationship and divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki.

Instead of giving you all a breakdown, we’re going to let you listen to the track and make up your own theories.

Check out “Easy on Me” above.

“Easy on Me” is the first single from Adele’s highly anticipated fourth album, 30. The record is due out Nov. 19. Pre-orders for the record are currently available here.

There will be several special editions of the record. The Target deluxe CD will feature three bonus tracks. Walmart will offer a clear exclusive double vinyl, and Amazon will provide a white exclusive double vinyl.

30 is the long (and we mean long) awaited follow-up to 2015’s 25.

On Thursday (Aug. 19), the British musician announced the upcoming release of his fourth studio album. Titled = (Equals), the record is due out Oct. 29 through Atlantic Records. Fans have already gotten a firsthand listen to the new album with the release of its first single “Bad Habits.”

To coincide with the new album announcement, Sheeran has revealed the album’s tracklisting. The 14-song album will include songs about love “The Joker and the Queen,” “First Times,” “2step”), loss (“Visiting Hours”), resilience (“Can’t Stop the Rain”), and fatherhood (“Sandman,” “Leave Your Life”).
