Story of Song
“Hello” is about Adele reconnecting with herself. When asked if “Hello” is an apology to an ex Adele replied:”Oh, god no. That’s over and done with, thank f–k. That’s been over and done with for f–king years, No, it’s not about anyone specifically. It’s about friends, ex-boyfriends, it’s about myself, it’s about my family. It’s also about my fans as well. I feel like everyone thinks I’m so far away and I’m not. Everyone thinks I live in f–king America, I don’t. The song is about hurting someone’s feelings but it’s also about trying to stay in touch with myself, which sometimes can be a little bit hard to do. It’s about a yearning for the other side of me. When I’m away, I really, really miss my life at home. The way that I feel when I’m not in England, is desperation. I can’t breathe anywhere else.”
In another interview with Ryan Seacrest, Adele said:”I have a little curiosity about my past now that I’m a grown up, We’re not kids anymore and stuff like that. It’s kind of a hello to all my old friends, all the relationships I’ve had, all my old teachers, my little me when I was 7 or 8, and also a bit of a hello to all my fans because I’ve been gone for so long.”
