Here is what Adele had to say about the writing process for her new record :
“I was certainly nowhere near where I’d hoped to be when I first started it nearly 3 years ago,” she wrote. “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!”
“Easy On Me” has taken on particular significance for those who have gone through a divorce.
Adele’s new single seems to have taken on a special significance by people who’ve also been through a divorce.https://t.co/PWEl63KshH

What Easy On Me Meant To Me
These lyrics, at least to me, speak to the pain and confusion of those who marry and divorce at a young age.
Go easy on mе, baby
I was still a child
Didn’t get the chance to
Feel thе world around me
Had no time to choose what I chose to do
I went through a divorce at 30. It was difficult and it hurt. When I went out into the world I found myself to still be the 22-year-old who got into a long, fraught relationship.
I had also grown more than I thought. But it was still a challenge to navigate a world that had changed so much since I had last stepped into it alone. I also asked people to go “Easy on me” as I navigated the first time I was single as an adult.

Adele is a talent that crosses national and racial bounds. Her powerful alto voice can sing Soul, R&B, Jazz, and Pop with ease. Her new single brings back her powerful ballad skills. She is probably the best female ballad singer going right now.
