Adele's New Single 'Easy On Me' Just Dropped & It's Brutally Honest About Her Divorce

Adele is back with her first new music in six years after a big divorce, and she's ready to make you feel all the things.

The heartbreak queen just dropped "Easy On Me," the first single from her upcoming album 30, and fans are already calling it classic Adele.

She promised earlier this month that the album would explain her recent divorce to her son, and the first song definitely goes there.

"Go easy on me baby, I was still a child," she sings in the soulful piano ballad. "Didn't get the chance to feel the world around me. Had no chance to choose what I chose to do."

The music video shows Adele leaving a run-down and closed-up home in the country before driving off with a wagon full of her stuff in the back. Newlyweds and happy couples blast past her on the road while she surfs her hand through the wind, all while pages of music go flying out the back of her car.

Oh, and she does the "singing on a chair" thing again, this time in the cluttered and deserted home that she's leaving.

Adele finalized her divorce from Simon Konecki in March. She recently told Vanity Fair that she ended the relationship because it felt like she was "going through the motions."

You can hear a lot of that in the lyrics of "Easy On Me" and it's got fans feeling all the feels.

"There ain't no room for things to change when we are so deeply stuck in our ways," she sings. "I changed who I was to put you both first but now I give up."

Her new album is due out on November 19.

Adele pretended to freak out in a recent radio interview when the host told her that Ed Sheeran is dropping his album in the same week.

"Don't panic," the host says.

"He can panic!" she replies.
