Adele’s new video premiered today and it already has over 13 million views. I watched the video way too many times today and yet I did not watch it enough. Adele is everything. I have been swimming in a pool of my own tears all day long. And of course I have added the song on the soundtrack to my life. Adele’s voice is so powerful. The lyrics are soothing and saddening at the same time. Wow.
Lyrics are below.
Nice interview from Billboard.com. I’m looking forward to seeing Straight Outta Compton.
This song is a vessel. It carries the unbearable anguish of millions. We recorded it to channel the pain, fear, and trauma caused by the ongoing slaughter of our brothers and sisters. We recorded it to challenge the indifference, disregard, and negligence of all who remain quiet about this issue. Silence is our enemy. Sound is our weapon. They say a question lives forever until it gets the answer it deserves… Won't you say their names? – #Wondaland #HYTB @deepcotton @stbeautyband @romangianarthur @twopointoh @jidenna link in bio
