Adele Sings the Full Version of "When We Were Young" Live, Will Give You Chills

You know, standard-issue Adele Chills ™.

As we count down the days until Friday—when Adele's album 25 hits—we finally have another song other than "Hello" to hold us over. (Yayyyyyy/sobs.) And while we got a quick preview the other day, she's just released her full new track in all its glory. 

"When We Were Young" is a power ballad that will give you the *feels*. Shot at The Church Studios in London, the accompanying video is a stripped-down live performance with no gimmicks.

Talking to SiriusXM about the tune, Adele said it's about "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. And 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."

Cue the nostalgia.
