Day 4 - 3/28/17 - Website and social profiles launched, SNL announced

Day 11 - 4/4/17 - Interview on Radio 1 Breakfast for SOTT release day
Day 14 - 4/7/17 - Sign of the Times release date
Day 22 - 4/15/17 - SNL performance
Start to release, Adele’s album schedule was 34 days. 35 days would put Harry on Friday, April 28th. (Just as an FYI, obviously who knows what the date will be.)
There are a number of things to note. The release specials like the BBC and NBC Christmas ones are more unique to Adele IMO. From what I can tell, Adele focused on London and NY, and at one point Europe, during album release. She did West Coast promo before the 2016 Grammy’s (technically including the Carpool Karaoke even though it was filmed prior etc. etc.). She began touring on Feb 29, 4.5 months after the announcement, 3 months after release.
I’m out of the prediction business. But Harry is more mobile than Adele, so it’s possible he’ll do a London to NY to LA sweep for promo. Additionally, there’s an extra week between announcement and single release, but given the SNL performance date (and the necessity of a second song), I don’t think a 5 week timeframe is that ridiculous. Given that he’ll be running into Dunkirk promo, it could even be shorter. (I’m stressed just saying it)
I felt like a lot of stuff in my life has changed and not at all because of my career but just because stuff changes as you get older and I found myself yearning for my past, for no reason specifically other than… it had gone. It had happened and I missed elements of it. I didn’t want to be back there - I just missed elements of it. And it felt like all of us were moving on, like with our own things and its not about a love relationship, like with an ex, its about my relationships with everyone that I love. And I miss a lot of those people. It’s not that we’ve fallen out or anything, its just that we’ve all got our own lives going on.
So... while driving home, "Hello" by Adele comes on the radio, and I swear this first thirty seconds of it playing was me going: "Oh, it's the cover of Widowmaker's song! ... the lyrics are wrong, though... wait, shit." I've always loved your voice; thank you so much for doing what you do!
This always happens to anyone who has my parodies honestly. Including myself. Thank you!!!
