Adele has gone ahead and done it again. While the artiste is still collecting awards for her album 25, her gorgeous new video, Send My Love (To Your new Lover), landed at Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night.
Before we discuss the song, watch it here
Dressed in a floral patterned Dolce and Gabbana dress, Adele twirls and twists as she sings of a mature love. The song is one joyous declaration of freedom and is amazingly trippy.
Take a look at the lyrics: Send my love to your new lover | Treat her better | We’ve gotta let go of all of our ghosts | We both know we ain’t kids no more.
The video, directed by Patrick Daughters, is strikingly minimalistic. We see Adele standing in front of a black background as the song kicks in. She then breaks into a dance and turns into a polychromatic burst of visions and colours.
The singer was not at the awards night in person to introduce her single as she is on tour at present. She’d previously teased the video in a clip released last Monday.
Adele released her third album, 25, in November and ended up topping the Billboard 200 for ten consecutive weeks with it. She’s currently performing a sold out tour of Europe in support of the massive LP and will be headlining Glastonbury the weekend of June 22nd to wrap the UK leg. Her North American tour kicks off on July 5 and runs through November 15.
