Adele - Turning Tables
Of the two tracks being touted as Adele's next single, for me, it is hands down Turning Tables that is the superior.
Rumour Has It might be fiery, it might have that Adele 'not a care in the world' swagger that everyone seems to want these days, but Turning Tables is a song of such heart-breaking beauty, such sumptuous delights that ever since I first heard, I've wanted it to play as a kind of soundtrack to the most dramatic moments of my own life.
Quite rightly, it builds on the best track from Adele's previous album - Hometown Glory - latching on to another gorgeous piano hook and pumping in a classic full-force Adele vocal. Everyone might rave about Someone Like You, but it's Turning Tables that's the real tear-jerker in my opinion.
So much has been said and written about Adele's runaway success this year, but putting aside all the hype and bluster, it's important to remember just how good her voice really is. Not many singers can truly blow you away, but here, Adele does every single time.
A truly magnificent song.
