Many individuals, together with Adele, are saying that her new track, “Easy On Me,” is about her divorce. Unfortunately, that isn’t true. It is about her poltergeist.

This studying is borne out in each the lyrical content material of “Easy On Me” and the accompanying video, directed by Xavier Dolan. Adele begins the video in the home from the “Hello” video, which was a track about shopping for a home earlier than you notice it has a poltergeist. The home is now a chilling sight to behold. Chairs are upended (probably by the poltergeist); the furnishings is roofed (to trick the poltergeist). Someone (Adele) is leaving in a rush. Crows screech ominously within the distance. Flies buzz close to a dilapidated window as Adele walks fastidiously towards it, gazing out one final time earlier than she grabs her suitcase and sun shades and runs for the proverbial hills.

Outside, the wind is loud, indignant. Something doesn’t need Adele to go away. She solutions her telephone: “Hi, darling,” she says to somebody, in all probability her paranormal investigator. “I’m getting on the road now. All packed. About to leave.” As she says this, she glances again on the home, fearful. Did it hear her? She tells her investigator that if she is “late, go ahead and start without me, all good.” Why would she be late? And to what? She doesn’t say. But we (these of us who’ve consumed the Paranormal Activity franchise) know.

Suddenly, Adele’s sign drops. “Can you hear me?” she asks, visibly frightened. The paranormal investigator can not, in truth, hear her. The wind picks up as Adele heads to her automobile, shot from overhead, to recommend that somebody — one thing — is watching her.

She will get into the automobile and places in a cassette tape, as a result of famously, poltergeists destroy technology, and that’s why she will’t plug in her telephone like a standard individual. As she drives away from the home, we see that it has already been offered, that means Adele has knowingly handed a haunted object onto one other household. It’s tremendous … that is principally the one approach to eliminate a poltergeist. The track begins.

Adele drives previous a gaggle of kooky randos having a Christmas get together on the street, for some purpose. The cheery scene, which rings of The Shining, is supposed to exhibit the kind of pleasure that Adele herself has not been capable of expertise after 5 years spent trapped inside a home with a vengeful spirit. “I know there is hope in these waters / But I can’t bring myself to swim / When I am drowning in this silence,” she sings, admitting that she has felt very lonely as a result of she has not had individuals over in years, as she didn’t need them to be freaked by her poltergeist.

The track then switches to the crucial. “Go easy on me,” she pleads, with the poltergeist, who has been tormenting her ever since her final album by turning all of her furnishings over. Unfortunately, it quickly turns into clear that the poltergeist has adopted her out of her home and has now involved itself with messing along with her music pages. They all fly crazily out of her automobile window, bidden by some unseen demon. She appears to be like into the rearview mirror, fucking pissed. Not this shit once more.

She retains driving. She finally ends up at a brand new home, prepared to start out her life as a standard human millionaire who has no poltergeist however nonetheless “can’t afford real estate in London.” (I now perceive she is avoiding London, as it’s haunted.) Unfortunately the universe has different plans for Adele. It is immediately clear that her new home incorporates the identical previous poltergeist. Music pages swirl round her head. Furniture is stacked in odd formations behind her, the kinds of formations that might solely be dreamed up by a supernatural entity hell-bent on chaos.

She sits down within the new home in the course of the room on a single chair with no desk, which is the kind of self-preservationist factor you be taught to do when you have got a poltergeist. “There ain’t no room for things to change / When we are both so deeply stuck in our ways / You can’t deny how hard I have tried / I changed who I was to put you both first / But now I give up,” she sings as her materials items bounce psychotically across the room. The lyrics are clear as day: Adele has now begrudgingly accepted her poltergeist. Though she tried to separate from it, it’s now obvious: They can not exist with out each other. Perhaps, she permits herself to assume, the poltergeist is the supply of her creative inspiration?

The music video shifts into shade, demonstrating Adele’s change of coronary heart vis-à-vis her poltergeist. Now she is standing, letting the papers fly all around the fucking place. “I had good intentions / And the highest hopes,” she sings to the poltergeist, explaining that she wasn’t attempting to be impolite — she simply didn’t desire a poltergeist in her life proper now. “But I know right now / It probably doesn’t even show,” she sings, acknowledging that, sure, she did hire a mystical investigator and moved properties in an try and rid herself of the poltergeist. She is sorry about that.

It is now unbelievably windy inside Adele’s new home. This is the type of wind that can’t come from the skin; it’s from a really emotional ghost. Adele once more asks the spurned poltergeist to “go easy on me!!!!” She decides to go for one more drive to provide it slightly space to course of. She spots her paranormal investigative crew on the street — possibly she will ask them for assist along with her poltergeist? No. They are too busy leaning out of their automobile home windows after which speaking on the skin of the automobile as a substitute of on the within of the automobile (?) to assist her. So she goes again residence, billions of music pages nonetheless flying out of the automobile. This will occur each time she drives now.

Back at residence, the digital camera pans as much as Adele’s chandelier, which is, in fact, transferring freakily by itself. Adele appears to be like again on the digital camera, which we now perceive has been capturing the entire time from the viewpoint of the poltergeist. “Go easy on me,” she sings as soon as extra to her poltergeist, shaking her head ruefully. The wind picks up once more. Adele begins to snort maniacally. The unholy demon is now inside her.
