Adele Performs ‘Million Years Ago’ on NBC’s ‘Today’
Hot off her heels of smashing first-week album sales records, Adele continued her media blitz this morning (Nov. 25) on NBC's Today, where she performed a live version of her ballad "Million Years Ago" off the 25 album.
Accompanied by two acoustic guitars, the 27-year-old singer sang her heart out in this sentimental ballad while hundreds of cheering fans braving the cold in Rockefeller Center behind her. Co-written by Greg Kurstin, the song has Adele reminiscing about her childhood and wondering whether she recognizes the person she once was. "Million Years Ago" fits in with Adele's broader themes of growth and maturity as echoed by other songs on the 25 album.
"I know I'm not the only one / Who regrets the things they've done, " she sings. "Sometimes I just feel it's only me / Who can't stand the reflection that they see / I wish I could live a little more / Look up to the sky, not just the floor / I feel like my life is flashing by / And all I can do is watch and cry."
Adele will next be seen on TV in NBC's airing of Adele: Live in New York City, which was recorded at Radio City Music Hall on Nov. 17.
