Adele’s highly-anticipated new album, 25, will be out later this week. It was preceded by her single “Hello,” but now we have one more taste of the new music ahead of its Friday release. “When We Were Young” is Adele’s favorite song on the album and the only one she co-wrote with Tobias Jesso Jr. She performed it live in Church Studios along with a full band, including backup singers to fill out the sound. Paul Dugdale directed the video.
Adele compares her earlier life to movies and songs, and describes how she went from restless to reckless as time passed. It’s a beautiful ballad, and a good preview of her upcoming album. Watch the “When We Were Young” studio performance below:
