Adele "Someone Like You" Video Premieres This Week
"Someone Like You" Certified Platinum
NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2011 -- Columbia Records -- The video for "Someone Like You," the second single from Adele's feverishly successful sophomore album 21, will premiere this Thursday evening on MTV and online at Vevo.com at 7:56pm EDT.
This minimal and graceful clip, directed by Jake Nava (Beyonce, Kanye West), was shot entirely on location inParis during the very early morning hours. "The location evokes style and romance," Nava explains, "and shooting early in the morning allows you to focus on Adele in this lonely and emotional space." "Someone Like You" has already been certified platinum for sales in excess of one million downloads. Adele's 21 is the biggest selling album of 2011 with over 10 million units sold worldwide. 21 has remained in the top 3 of Billboard's Top Album charts for 30 weeks since its release on February 22nd.
Adele returns to the U.S. for a sold-out, 10 city tour on October 7th in Atlantic City, NJ at Borgata. The tour will make stops inNashville, Miami and Atlanta (among other cities) before coming to a close on October 21 in Grand Prairie, TX at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie (see below for full itinerary).
