New Song & Video: Adele – ‘Hello’

Published: Friday 23rd Oct 2015 by Sam

After much ado, Adele has unleashed haunting new single ‘Hello.’

The track is the first taste the masses will have of the Brit diva’s third album ’25’ (which arrives on November 20th via Columbia/XL). She’s described the body of work as a “make-up” record.

As the focus of a major marketing campaign, ‘Hello’ was first previewed in snippet form as a surprise on The X Factor UK last week. That ignited worldwide excitement on social media, which has intensified following the single and LP’s formal announcement.

Now, with the song finally here, buzz is expected to erupt – especially given that its accompanying video (starring Tristan Wilds) has been unveiled too

What are you waiting for? ‘Hello’ awaits  after the jump…


Understated both sonically and visually, ‘Hello’ relies on its lyrical potency – which is all sorts of piercing.

As Adele has succeeded with doing in the past, this release manages to appeal to the masses without ever sounding like a rehash.

Titan status is rare in today’s industry, yet with ‘Hello’ (and inevitably ’25’) the singer proves why hers in much deserved.

  4. BeyIsKing October 23, 2015

    The song is trademark Adele. It’s simple and elegant. It’s a proper song. Real music right there

  5. BeyIsKing October 23, 2015

    It’s a breath of fresh air to an ailing music industry, it’s refreshing to hear a song like this after years of nothing but garbage EDM songs on the radio and charts

    • King Stephy October 23, 2015

      YES! She is a so ANTI-THIS GENERATION, and I love it. Adele music sounds like some masterpiece unheard-of recordings from the 1960s. But, she still somehow keeps a modern sound to it. She’s what this generation needs so badly. Refreshing is exactly what she is. Artist(s) like her is what brings diversity to mainstream radio & to the overall industry.

  6. HailBeysus October 23, 2015

    AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! ????????????????????????????????????????????

    • HailBeysus October 23, 2015

      P.S lets not forget are girl’s album ’21’ is still charting on the Billboard Hot 200 4 years later and stands at #114! Girl go on and straight up annihilate the compitetion! That song is gold! Her voice and its natural rasp give me LIFE!!! So happy to have been a fan since the beginning and see all she has accomplished! I am witnessing a LEGEND IN THE MAKING!!!

  7. How Many Drinks October 23, 2015

    Gorgeous I love it

  8. King Stephy October 23, 2015

    Baaaybeeee… I’ve already listened to this song about 10 times. Those low raspy notes, that husky smokey tone, beautiful thick full resonant mid-chest belts & you can understand every word that’s coming out ha mouth. This song is an overall 7/10 for me. Which is a VERY fair & honest score for today’s standards.
    I’m so happy she delivered with her first single. Now, I’m just itching to hear that full album. Also, there’s a rumor floating around that she covered Mariah’s “Can’t Let Go” song. And, that it’s on her bonus track Target edition. I hope to God, that it’s true. Her voice is so haunting & it captivates the shittt outta me. Excellent Job, Adele. BYE

  9. Sweetnothings78 October 23, 2015

    That folks is PURE undeniable talent.
    Haters good luck, you’re faves are in for a slow xmas.

    Funny how the pest are the first and only to bring up Rihanna. Lol, also funny how both Qeer Ender and Byeler comments are a minute difference. Same person much?
    This song will be big off of hype, but I don’t see pop radio playing this much. I’m glad she went back to her folk/pop voice and not that I’m a 30 year old soulful black woman in church voice. Good luck tho, you know these fans stans for numbers, when the flop comes in, they’ll drop you like Lana Del Ray on the BB top 200.

    • Career Ender October 23, 2015

      Marikos please, didn’t you see what HateBird did on the last Adele post?
      he started attacking Beyonce and hive
      what goes around !

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

        Has nothing to do with this post and righy now. Focus on Beyonce’s label mate outselling her whole discography with one album.

      • Career Ender October 23, 2015

        I know that, hence I said “what goes around”
        I don’t have to worry about Beyoncé who went double platinum with her last LP
        the only maggot under pressure is your dirty southern a$$ and the rest of your Nazi crew
        save Rih’s subsequent slide to obscurity!

  19. Weezy Tha G.O.A.T October 23, 2015

    The video makes me like the song even more. Real talent is back and I can’t wait for her new album.

      He was worse that Gaga
      this why Beyoncé >>> Dead Drugd’out Suicidal Cobain

      • OMG Logic!!! October 23, 2015

        Nirvana is overrated, but Thighyonce is in another league altogether when it comes to being over hyped, overrated, BS.

      • HailBeysus October 23, 2015

        @OMG Logic umm EXCUSE ME!!!! Nirvana is not overrated!! They are literally the pioneers to grunge rocm music! Their inspiration is very much highly influencing rock artist hell all artist of today! From the lyrics to sound Nirvana created a HUGE IMPACT from one studio album. It’s so sad how people of today will call just anyone overrated.

  22. Slay_Hive October 23, 2015

    Oh wow!! I wasn’t expecting to love it so much!! Werkkk Adele

  23. King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

    I listen to the song first and then watched the video. Song was ok, but the video really took it there. I’m sorry, but I’m a MTV generation, we kinda gotta have a video to help when a song is kinda… blah. She’s beautiful tho, stay heating Adele, not skinny just to be. She always looks older, I keep forgetting that she’s in her mid 20s. Older in a wise, elegant way. Night.

    • K- defender | 재 이현 김 October 23, 2015

      an MTV generation person? Please. you need a visual to go with music because you lack the intellect to understand audio art in its original form.
      there’s a reason you stan for side shows who flop when the visual isn’t dynamic.

      • King Mark111 /.\ October 23, 2015

        Oh boy, tell me more about how important image is. Lol

    Adele is evidence that if you write your OWN music using realities of life that everyone can relate to as a source of inspiration, you really don’t need imaging, s**, and pageantry to ensure commercial success.
    Beautiful, simple, timeless music. I’ve loved her since 2007.

  53. Royalkev October 23, 2015

    Omg, I love it! I didn’t dislike Adele before, but she kind of bored me. Although I feel too many people stan for her sells, I must say that this song takes talent to sing the “right way”. I haven’t liked a song by Adele this much since ‘Chasing Pavements’. ‘Hello’ song is amazing!

    I love this!!!! On repeat all morning . I’m not a huge Adele fan , but Hello has me intrigue.

    Them eyebrows are snatched for the gods and heavens. Y’all don’t want her cat eyes either. Slay me this morning Adele.
