After teasing fans with a surprise 30-second clip of the track during “X Factor”, Adele has now premiered the video for her new single “Hello”.
The six-minute video has been shot by Xavier Dolan and features stunning countryside shots mixed with impressive acting sequences to tell the story, reported Billboard.
Speaking of the collaboration, Dolan described working on the video as a “privilege”, adding: “When I first heard it, all the images were already running by so clearly in my head – and her trust and generosity allowed me to create freely.
“Being on set with her was wonderful. And the thought of directing her in the ‘acting’ aspect of the term was exciting. I discovered that she’s a very talented actress – no matter what she’ll tell you.”
The video was filmed in mid-October outside of Montreal, which Dolan said was a great experience.
“Adele allowed me to dive into this full throttle. I could abandon myself artistically and emotionally, like she always does. It made me extremely proud.”
“Hello” is Adele’s first single in three years following 2012’s Oscar-winning “Skyfall” and will act as the lead track for the recently announced 25.
The singer bared her soul in an open letter to fans earlier this week as she announced her new music, and the singer promised 25 would be “a make up album”.
“It is about getting to know who I’ve become without realising. And I’m so sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened,” Adele said. PTI JCH JCH 10231323
