Last Friday (October 15), the singer-songwriter shared her first new song in five years and the first single from her upcoming album ’30’, before coming out next month.

Speaking to Zoe Ball on the BBC Radio Breakfast show, Adele admitted that she had three strong contenders in mind for the first single.


“There were three choices for the first single,” Adele said, adding that they were “very, very different, all of them”.

He then shared some details about the songs that could potentially be the lead single for ’30’. “Obviously ‘Easy on me,'” she said, “and then there’s another one that’s like, I got into Goldfrapps again,” she said.

“There’s another one that’s kind of ’70s, like piano, singer-songwriter-y,” she said. “When I say piano, I mean a whole band on it, but a lot of carpenters, like Elton, whatever.”

Adele said that she decided to go with ‘Easy on Me’ because of it’s “growing chorus” and because it “just felt like a song to me”, which she said was important to her because she played six had not released a new album in years.

Meanwhile, Adele has broken a new Spotify streaming record with new song ‘Easy on Me’.


The single, her first in five years, arrived at midnight on October 15 and garnered millions of streams within the first few hours of going live.

The song has now set a new record for most streams in a single day, surpassing the record previously held by K-pop giant, BTS. He set a record for ‘Butter’ with 20.9 million streams.

Reviewing Adele’s new single, Granthshala wrote: “For now, though, Adele has returned with a reassuring piece of the classic Adele Balladry. This song will accompany anyone going through a quarter-life crisis, a mid-life crisis, or just a hangover And if you watch Adele’s music to make you cry, you won’t be disappointed.”
