The British singer once again belts out a soulful ballad to lost love in her latest music video
The music video for When We Were Young, released Tuesday morning, features a live performance of the song at The Church Studios in London, where some of Adele’s upcoming album 25 was recorded. In the video, which was captured by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, the soulful singer wears a black shirt, blazer and long skirt to give a raw, emotional performance of the song.
“When We Were Young” was cowritten by Adele and Canadian musician Tobias Jesso, Jr., and features similar themes to her last tearjerker of a song. With lyrics like, “You sound like a movie, you look like a song – my God, this reminds me of when we were young,” the new single will once again have you nostalgic for lost love.
Grab a box of tissues and get ready to have your heart put through the wringer.
25 will be released Friday, Nov. 20.
