“Hello” e l’intenso ritorno di Adele

Rilasciato il video del nuovo struggente singolo dell’interprete britannica, che anticipa l’uscita del nuovo album “25”…

NoteVerticali.it_Adele-Hello-videoHello it’s me”: con questa prima frase emozionante Adele ritorna a salutare il pubblico che l’aspetta da ormai 4 anni. Il video, girato in bianco e nero nella campagna attorno a Montreal dal giovane regista canadese Xavier Dolan (Mommy, Tom at the Farm), regala primi piani meravigliosi della cantante dagli occhi profondi e malinconici.

Il brano è firmato dalla cantante stessa, mentre le musiche sono state realizzate in collaborazione da Greg Kurstin, che è anche il produttore del brano. Il testo evoca un amore finito le cui ferite ancora oggi sono forse non del tutto rimarginate, con una Adele che chiede scusa al destinatario per avergli spezzato il cuore. Quindi, a differenza dei brani precedenti, cambia il ruolo impersonato dall’interprete britannica, che da vittima si trasforma in colpevole che cerca continuamente di chiamare la persona lasciata per chiedergli scusa ma senza ricevere mai una risposta. Le prime note lente ci portano in un viaggio di esplosione vocalica e dell’inciso.

ADELE – HELLO

Ecco il testo del brano:

ADELE – HELLO

Hello, it’s me

I was wondering if after all these years
You’d like to meet, to go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing
Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet
There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times to tell you
I’m sorry, for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried to tell you
I’m sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Hello, how are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself
I’m sorry, I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out of that town
Where nothing ever happened?
It’s no secret
That the both of us are running out of time

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times to tell you
I’m sorry, for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried to tell you
I’m sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Ooooohh, anymore
Ooooohh, anymore
Ooooohh, anymore
Anymore

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times to tell you
I’m sorry, for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried to tell you
I’m sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore
