Adele has shared her first snippet of new music in almost six years, ahead of her musical reappearance.
For the past week, fans of the chart-topping singer have been seeing clues that she’s about to return to the music scene, which she’s finally confirmed to be the case, revealing that her new single Easy On Me will be released on 15 October.
She shared the news on Tuesday afternoon, alongside a short black-and-white clip of what looks like the song’s music video.

Easy On Me is the first single to be lifted from Adele’s upcoming fourth album, which looks set to be called 30, following a pattern started with her debut release 19 and continued on follow-ups 21 and 25.
It’s now approaching six years since Adele last released new music, when she broke records with her hit album 25 in 2015.
The album spawned hits When We Were Young and Send My Love (To Your New Lover), but is probably best remembered for its epic rule single Hello, which topped the charts in 36 countries upon its release.
Adele has repeatedly dodged questions about when we can expect to hear new music from her, dismissing one fan’s suggestion that she would release her long-awaited fourth album during the pandemic.
“Of course it’s not [being released soon],” she wrote. “Corona ain’t over. I’m quarantining. use a disguise and be patient.”
