With only three days to go before Adele’s new album, 25, hits the shelves, she has released a second song from the record, the BBC reports.
When We Were Young was recently described in The Guardian as the album’s “centrepiece” and “a standard in the making”.
It has the same combination of hope and melancholy that made Someone Like You a worldwide hit, without sounding like a facsimilie of that song.
The video, uploaded to YouTube this morning, sees Adele perform the track live at London’s Church studios, where some of 25 was recorded.
