It’s reportedly been confirmed that Adele‘s second single from her smash hit album ’25’ will be ‘When We Were Young’.
The track features in a ‘Live at Church Studios’ video, and Billboard are reporting that a source at Adele’s label Columbia Records has confirmed the track will be the second single, after pre-album release ‘Hello’.
See the ‘Live at Church Studios’ video – which already has close to 45 million YouTube views – below:
’25’ is already the best-selling album of the year in the UK, and reached one million sales in a record time of ten days, as well as being the most downloaded album of all time in the UK, at more than a quarter of a million copies.
Meanwhile, a rare yet extended live tour is also due in the New Year, with the Londoner crediting Kate Bush for inspiring her live return.
In an interview with the New York Times, Adele said: “I read somewhere, and I don’t know if it’s true or not, that [Bush’s son] said when he was 16, ‘I want to know now why everyone loves you.’ And it makes me so emotional. After that show, it was: ‘I don’t want to wait. I don’t want to wait till my kid is 16, I want to show him now.'”
Adele announced a massive 56-date American tour – running from July to November next year – earlier today, and will also play UK and Ireland dates from late February to early April, as follows:
Belfast, SSE Arena (February 29-March 1)
Dublin, 3Arena (March 4-5, )
