With over 1.2 million views on YouTube of the only performance of the song kicking things off right, Adele has announced the beautiful piano ballad “Someone Like You” as the second single from her upcoming release 21.
This song is true Adele to a T, and while I loved the soulful and fiesty ways of “Rolling In The Deep,” its always wonderful to see Adele sing a ballad. And she is not trying to recreate the magic that came with her popular songs “Chasing Pavements” or “Hometown Glory,” but instead takes on a new perspective of Adele thinking about a love of hers in the future tense talking about how she’ll be looking for ‘someone like’ them all along. Sad and beautiful; as is most of what Adele does (beautiful that is…although you can’t say the music is particularly uplifting).
Take a view of the must watch performance on Later…with Jools Holland where the addiction began! Adele’s new album featuring this single is coming February 22nd in the US.
