Watch: Adele returns with 'Hello' music video

You couldn't have scripted a more Adele-appropriate comeback than her new video for "Hello."

A windswept forest, a nostalgic sepia color palette and intimations of total loneliness only overcome by the resilience of her voice? Yep, that about covers the waterfront. 

The video, directed by Xavier Dolan, marks her first new music since contributing the theme to the 2012 film "Skyfall," for which she won an Academy Award. "25" will be her first LP since 2011's "21," the best-selling album of the decade.
