Hot Video Alert: Adele - Rolling In The Deep
Adele's new music video is pure perfection. It's the stunning visual complement to a near perfect song. The artfully directed video by Sam Brown features Adele front and center looking stunning in a black evening dress, hair pulled back, seated in an old chair just singing in an empty room. Less is DEFINITELY more in this video. Honestly, what more could you possibly need when you got Adele's powerhouse vocals? Maybe a room full of glasses filled with water, rippling to the beat of this "dark, bluesy gospel disco tune?" DONE. How about a contemporary dancer doing her (?) thing on a dance floor covered in white powder? DONE. China shattering against a wall? A blazing inferno? Drummer playing awkwardly under a stair case? DONE DONE DONE!
Released on iTunes in the U.S. on November 30th, "Rolling In The Deep" was written by Adele and Paul Epworth and went on to debut on the Billboard Hot 100 at #68 becoming Adele's second charting single in America. The single comes out in the UK on January 17th, both digitally and on CD single, the latter of which features a B-Side, "If It Hadn't Been For Love." U.S. fans, go download the single HERE, and check out the video below. You should also check out Adele's live performance of the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show HERE. Equally brilliant!
