Ahead of this weeks release , global chart smasher Adele has dropped a video of yet another live performance of a song featured on her forthcoming album, ’25’.
‘When We Were Young’, which Adele co-wrote with singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr, was performed during a live session at London’s Church venue. It will feature in a TV special for Australia’s 60 Minutes on 22nd November.
Recalling their first meeting in LA, Adele had this to say of Jesso –
“I absolutely loved him; his vibe, his humour, the way he plays piano – so felt. The music he makes is romantic, with a ’70s vibe. It turned out he was a really big fan of mine – and he totally kept his cool together, being thrown in the deep end, for our first co-writing session… His grandparents were friends with Philip Glass, and Tobias had inherited Philip Glass’s old piano. We wrote our song, ‘When We Were Young’, on that piano. How cool is that? I’m definitely going to work with him again. He’s my new secret weapon.”
Chatting with SiriusXM Adele told the interviewer –
“It was based on us being older, and being at a party at this house, and seeing everyone that you’ve ever fallen out with, everyone that you’ve ever loved, everyone that you’ve never loved, and stuff like that, where you can’t find the time to be in each other lives. And you’re all thrown together at this party when you’re like 50, and it doesn’t matter and you have so much fun and you feel like you’re 15 again. So that’s the vibe of it really.”
