5 questions that need answering from Adele’s ‘Hello’ music video.

Since it was released online on Friday, ’s new music video for her comeback single, Hello, has racked up over 22 million views – that’s nearly one million views per hour. British singer Adele on Friday released a melancholic ballad from her hotly-anticipated new album due out on November 20, breaking a four-year wait for millions of fans after her best-selling 21. “I’m sorry for breaking your heart/ But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore,” the 27-year-old sings in the black-and-white video, filmed in the Quebec countryside around Montreal.

After a hiatus that everyone can agree was entirely too long, Adele has cackled her way back to the surface and quenched the tearjerking-song thirst in everyone’s life with the release of her newest single, “Hello.” In short, it’s a life-ruiner.But the record-breaking singer has revealed how close she came to calling off her comeback and ending her career, fearing she had lost her magic touch. The stunning video, which was directed by 26-year-old Xavier Dolan, has been highly praised but some fans were baffled about some of the moments from the six minute promo. The singer told fans in a letter posted on her social media accounts this week that she chose the title because her 25th birthday marked a turning point. 21 — which featured Someone Like You and other hits including Rolling in the Deep — won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and spent two consecutive years as the top-selling album in the United States. The six-minute video has been shot by Xavier Dolan and features stunning countryside shots mixed with impressive acting sequences to tell the story, reported Billboard.

Yesterday, as her new single Hello was released — her first since 2012 — she told how the first draft of her highly-anticipated third album 25 was REJECTED by her own team. The singer said she was “going to belch” as breakfast show host Nick Grimshaw cued the song up. “My hips just started hurting, as I’m getting so nervous,” she laughed. “There’s a heartbeat in my hips for some reason.” “I obviously want people to like it,” she said, describing the song as “very intimate” and “very conversational”. “I’m singing very high up in that chorus, trying to have a Meatloaf moment or something.” A simple piano ballad with a soaring chorus, Hello was first teased during an advert break on Sunday’s edition of The X Factor. When putting the water in first while making a cup of tea got people’s backs up, and some were asking why they didn’t have a swish iPhone for the storyline. “I could see the GIFs on Twitter. Speaking of the collaboration, Dolan described working on the video as a “privilege”, adding: “When I first heard it, all the images were already running by so clearly in my head – and her trust and generosity allowed me to create freely. “Being on set with her was wonderful.

She had swapped her tried-and-tested formula of expressing heartache in music for the pleasures of motherhood, a topic she now concedes was “boring”, musically at least. But we’re left with a number of questions afterward—some real nail-biters that should be addressed, discussed in an open forum, and eventually, answered: There’s a good chunk of time that passes before the music actually starts. Adele, 27, whose son Angelo has just turned three, said: “I wrote a lot of songs that didn’t make the album because they simply weren’t good enough and I didn’t believe in them myself, so my confidence was really getting knocked. “It was really quite a long process. Asked if she felt any pressure after the success of her last album 21, the star said: “Because of my last album, because of what it went on to do, it was kind of a write-off to ever expect anything with this album, the new one, like that. She’s taken a career hiatus since the birth of her first child in 2012. “I was struggling to write my record, so it all slowed down,” she told BBC Radio 2 on Friday. “Obviously, I took a bit of time off because I became a mum.

I wanted to give up a lot because I couldn’t do it and I thought I’d run out of ideas and had lost my ability to write a song. “My team around me are very honest. So actually it made it a bit easier. “Getting into the headspace was really difficult – obviously now I’m a parent, and having such a break off, I kind of fell out of the habit of writing songs. “So no I didn’t feel pressure.

If I put an iPhone or a modern car in a movie it feels like I’m making a commercial.” While phone booths have become widely redundant since the explosion of mobile technology, the use of one in the video tickled a few people but again, this was intentional. “It says she is stranded in nature, which has regained its rights. it’s an element of the past. It made me extremely proud.” “Hello” is Adele’s first single in three years following 2012’s Oscar-winning “Skyfall” and will act as the lead track for the recently announced 25. Some might even hypothesize that in the time that Adele has been away, her powers have strengthened so much that just the lifting of her eyelashes can start music. Even no matter what this album does, my next record’s going to be following 21. “It’s phenomenal what happened with that – but it is a phenomenon. As any bored child left in an office space between the years of 1984 and 1997 knows, this is actually used to store contacts—in this case, it presumably holds the contact information of all the second-rate suitors that have vaguely assisted Adele in collecting her seven million Grammys.

I’m not sure that anyone has a landline anymore, and more specifically, I wasn’t aware that you can just waltz into an abandoned house and pick up a phone with a landline that works. I was worried no one would care, that no one would want it.” Adele hinted that 25 is a happier record than 21, which was inspired by the breakdown of an 18-month relationship, adding that she is now “in a great place”.

Adele explained that Hello, which received more than 200,000 views on YouTube in just five hours, is an ode to the loved ones she is no longer in contact with since finding fame. The video is full of antiquated phones, and if we dare to get creative, it could be because this relationship shares some qualities with telephone equipment she’s using: It’s old, outdated, and kind of confusing. In the words of another English lady, “Anything can happen,” so it’s not an absurd notion that Adele’s voice singularly caused a woodland tornado. She said: “A lot of stuff in my life has changed and I found myself yearning for my past, for no reason other than that it had gone and I missed elements of it. “It’s about everyone that I love and I miss those people. It’s not that we’ve fallen out or anything, it’s just we’ve all got our own lives going on.” Adele also blamed motherhood for her slow return to music and said she did not appreciate the levels of hysteria surrounding her comeback because she had cut herself off from showbiz.

Adele repeatedly referred to Angelo’s father, charity boss Simon Konecki, 41, as her “boyfriend”, confirming they have patched things up since The Sun on Sunday revealed in December that he had quit their family home. And she said it was Simon who reassured her that her career was still alive when she thought a 30-second teaser advert for Hello had flopped, following its surprise screening during last Sunday’s X Factor. “I don’t have Twitter.

Adele’s revelation that she does not even know how to access Twitter — despite having 23.5million followers — became clearer when she hit out at stars who reveal too much online. “Sometimes I have my days and my moments when I think, ‘It would be a lot easier to be on a yacht all the time’, but I don’t want to be on a yacht — I’m scared of the sea. “I find fame quite frightening and really toxic. It’s very charming and persuasive but it doesn’t last, so why would you want to get involved in something that you will miss so much once it’s gone?” She said: “I don’t really like touring.

There’s something quite lonely about going on stage in front of loads of people then everyone going home. “But I would love to think I have it in me to do one of those global tours.
