Update: Adele Goes Straight to Number 1 with “Easy On Me,” First New Single Since “Skyfall” in 2016


UPDATE It took 90 minutes for the single to hit number 1. Released at 7pm.

Here it is. At last. Adele’s “Easy On Me” is her first single since “Skyfall” in 2016 is written by Greg Kurstin, who wrote her big 2015 hit, “Hello.” This is in anticipation of her “30” album coming November 19th.

Other songs on the album will be by the same writers as her “25” album including Tobias Jesso Jr., Max Martin and Shellback, Paul Epworth, and Ludwig Göransson.

Everyone get out the hankies, the Kleenex, etc. And wait for “Easy on Me” to hit number 1 on iTunes around 9pm Eastern.
