After teasing fans with a surprise 30-second clip of the track during X Factor, the video for Adele's new song Hello has premiered online and it is everything we look forward to in an Adele song.

The six-minute video features sepia-toned visuals, a strong melody, a sentimental story and the Grammy award winner's soulful singing. Adele's first single in three years following 2012's Oscar-winning Skyfall, Hello looks very impressive. It will serve as the lead track for her recently announced album 25.

The song itself is a classic Adele number which strikes a chord with the audience with its emotional lyrics, which coupled with her voice, makes it a song you will want to listen to on repeat. Not to mention the video, where the singer looks stunning as she sings her heart out.

The new album was announced on Wednesday when she wrote to fans on her Facebook page saying, "I'm sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened."

Revealing details of the long-awaited follow-up, the English singer said that her 25th birthday marked a turning point. "My last record was a break-up record and if I had to label this one, I would call it a make-up record. I'm making up with myself. Making up for lost time. Making up for everything I ever did and never did," she wrote.

The video has been shot by Xavier Dolan and features stunning countryside shots mixed with impressive acting sequences to tell the story, reported Billboard.

Speaking of the collaboration, Dolan described working on the video as a "privilege", adding, "When I first heard it, all the images were already running by so clearly in my head -and her trust and generosity allowed me to create freely.

"Being on set with her was wonderful. And the thought of directing her in the 'acting' aspect of the term was exciting. I discovered that she's a very talented actress - no matter what she'll tell you."

The video was filmed in mid-October outside of Montreal, which Dolan said was a great experience.

"Adele allowed me to dive into this full throttle. I could abandon myself artistically and emotionally, like she always does. It made me extremely proud."
