Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, 30, professionally known as Adele, is back with a new song titled “Easy on Me,” which was inspired by her divorce from Simon Konecki, 47. Columbia Records released the song on October 15, 2021.

Hailing from London, England, United Kingdom, Adele started dating Konecki in 2011 and they welcomed their son Angelo James Konecki on October 19, 2012. The couple got married in 2018 and separated before the year ended.
In 2019, Adele filed for divorce from Simon in the United States. The divorce was finalized on March 4, 2021.
Filmed in Quebec, Canada in September 2021, the video for “Easy On Me” finds Adele once again collaborating with Xavier Dolan, 32, who directed the music video of her 2015 song “Hello.” The Cannes Grand Prix winning director said, “I was honestly hoping for this to happen.”
“For me, there’s nothing stronger than artists reconnecting after years apart,” Dolan continued. ” I’ve changed. Adele’s changed and this is an opportunity to celebrate how we’ve both evolved and how we’ve also both remained faithful to our dearest themes.”
“It’s all the same but different,” Dolan added. The “Easy on Me” video begins in the same house he and Adele used to shoot the video for “Hello.”
