You knew it was coming, and here it is: Adele’s first new song in three years, “Hello,” has arrived just days after being teased during British X Factor.
As promised, it comes complete with a video directed by Xavier Dolan and co-starring Tristan Wilds (yes, from The Wire). It’s the first single off her long-awaited third album, 25, which Adele will officially bless us with on November 20.
Also, dive into our exploration of why Adele rebuffs technology in the song and its video.

When Adele’s new video for “Hello” was released on Friday, Oct. 23, plenty of fans had the same question:
Why does she have a flip phone?
As emotional and poignant as the video is, some viewers couldn’t help but zero in on the outdated piece of technology — with jokes like “It’s not just Adele’s comeback.
It’s the flip phone’s comeback too” and “A flip phone, Adele? Explains the lack of tweets.”
Director Xavier Dolan has a simple explanation for his choice to use a flip phone in the visual treatment for the song, which is the first single from Adele’s upcoming album 25.
Adele’s ‘Hello‘ music video director: ‘She deserves it all’
“I could see the GIF’s on Twitter,” he tells the Los Angeles Times. “I’m like, ‘Guys, get over it. It doesn’t matter.’
But the real explanation is that I never like filming modern phones or cars.
They’re so implanted in our lives that when you see them in movies you’re reminded you’re in reality.”
“If you see an iPhone or a Toyota in a movie, they’re anti-narrative, they take you out of the story,” Dolan continues. “If I put an iPhone or a modern car in a movie it feels like I’m making a commercial.”
