Adele has released her new single ‘Easy on Me’ following a six-year hiatus from music.
In standard Adele fashion, the singer has taken musical inspiration from her love life and specifically, her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki to create the break up ballad.
The first track from her new album was released on Friday morning and is filled with hints at how she orchestrated the split from ex Simon and all the reasons why she had to end her relationship with the charity CEO.
As reported in The Mirror, Adele makes it clear in the lyrics that she did not want Simon to have any hard feelings towards her for making the decision to split in 2019 as she asks him to “go easy on me” in her new song.
The Tottenham native also blames being young and that she did not “get the chance” to “feel the world around me” in the deep song as a key reason to calling it a day with her husband.
Mother of one Adele also goes on to add how she “changed” in order to put her eight-year-old son and Simon first.
She sings how it cannot be denied “how hard” she worked to try and salvage her marriage before adding “now I give up.”
In the song, she goes: “Go easy on me, baby, I was still a child,
“Didn’t get the chance to feel the world around me,
“I had no time to choose what I chose to do, so go easy on me.”

The ballad then hears the talented singer-songwriter belt: “There ain’t no room for our things to change
“When we are both so deeply stuck in our ways, you can’t deny how hard I’ve tried
“I changed who I was to put you both first, but now I give up.”
Many had believed Adele to be married since 2016, but she recently revealed they didn’t wed until 2018.
She publicly filed for divorce in 2019.
The song is the first single to be released from her upcoming album called 30, which is set for release on November 19.
Before its release, the award-winning songstress from North London shared a detailed description about the emotional trauma that went into the brand new album.
She said: “I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago.
“Quite the opposite actually. I rely on routine and consistency to feel safe, I always have.
“And yet there I was knowingly – willingly even, throwing myself into a maze of absolute mess and inner turmoil!
“I’ve learned a lot of blistering home truths about myself along the way. I’ve shed many layers but also wrapped myself in new ones.”
