Adele is back breaking hearts and scrambling brains. In the superstar's latest clip, director Patrick Daughters has her transform into a hypnotic, kaleidoscopic puzzle. As she sings, "We've gotta let go of all of our ghosts, we both know we ain't kids no more," Daughters takes her instruction literally making her ghostly image distort and twist.

Daughters explains the concept as: "Ghosts in this case are versions of ourselves that remain stuck at particular point in the past." Continuing, "So when Adele sings about letting go of all of our ghosts, I picture other versions of her that are in a different place than where she is now."

The track is the latest single from her album 25. Like the rest of the record, it's best served while dramatically weeping — eye make-up intact, of course.
