Yesterday, we shared a snippet of Adele’s new single “When We Were Young” that was included in the promotional video for her interview with 60 Minutes Australia. Today, Adele fans are getting to hear the whole thing, from that same live performance.
Adele’s vocals are just as stunning as ever, and this song carries the same themes of lost love and reminiscence about a failed relationship. Adele croons lyrics like, “Let me photograph you in this light / In case it is the last time / That 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.”
Yep, Adele is all of us going over past relationships. She has a penchant to put into words all those complex, happy-sad feelings that come with old relationships and getting over a former love. Clearly, Adele’s latest single will be just as successful as her last.
