Adele Releases Full Version of ‘When We Were Young’
We are a few days away from the world being blessed with Adele’s third album, 25. The British songbird’s “Hello” has certainly given us the feels and her second single, “When We Were Young,” will do the same -- if not more.
Adele shared the soaring ballad on her YouTube account. The video showcases the singer performing live at the Church Studios in the U.K. On the song, the 27-year-old reflects on a former lover she spots in a crowded room. “You look like a movie / You sound like a song / My god this reminds me of when we were young,” she sings.
"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 told SiriusXM of the track, which was co-written by Tobias Jesso Jr.
The 25 creator is currently on her promotional run for her new album this week in the U.S. On Tuesday night (Nov. 17), she will tape her NBC concert special, Adele: Live in New York City, which will air on Dec. 14. In addition, she will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
