Single Review – Adele – Hello

Perhaps one of the most hyped tracks of the year has arrived as the wait for new material from Adele is over. Her new track ‘Hello’ is from her third upcoming third album 25 out on November 20th. The new track ‘Hello’ opens with the soft, nudging piano chords that naturally accompany her vocal capabilities  in what is very familiar territory. The song then goes on to grow and expand into a chorus of power and penetration from her vocal kick and whilst this demonstrates what she can do, but it does feel very typical musically. It is typical of most pop ballads and you feel like she is a little bit better than that and it detracts for the vocal focus a bit whereas the music of 21 was more complimentary. We can only see what comes next.
