Adele fans were left with goosebumps as they released the music video for Easy On Me is a continuation of her past videos.
After the singer, 33, released the video at midnight on Friday, fans were quick to watch the clip, which sees the star pack up her house and drive away, as pages of sheet music flutter out of the windows onto the road.
The clip immediately drew parallels with the video for her 2015 hit, Hello, in which she moved into the house that features in Easy On Me.
However, eagle-eyed fans pointed out that the connection goes as far back to her 2018 song, Chasing Pavements and has a link to her 2011 single, Rolling In The Deep.
