Adele has teased her first comeback single since her last song “Water Under the Bridge” which was released in 2016. A clip of the new single titled, ‘Easy on Me’ was shared online in a 21-second teaser video giving Adele fans a taste of what’s to come in her new chapter of music.
The black and white clip shows Adele inserting a tape with the label ‘Easy on me’ into her car and then she turns up the volume. The song then starts as the car moves and she moves her hands outside in a waving motion to the music. We then see the back seats of the car filled with sheet music, flying out of the window. The clip then ends on a title scene saying “EASY ON ME, OCTOBER 15.”
