'It's not a heartbreak anthem as much as a tentatively hopeful ballad from a woman emerging from an emotionally marooned period,' NPR's Latesha Harris said of the song. 

While Forbes said the song could be summed up as 'spectacular,' Rolling Stone said that the singer's comeback song has 'reduced the world to tears' .

And the BBC described the song as 'a big woolly blanket wrapped around the loneliness and pain of anyone who's been through a core-shaking break-up.'

'I am shaking, crying and throwing up!' Adele fans flood social media with hilarious memes as singer releases Easy On Me 

Adele fans flooded the internet with hilarious memes as they reacted to the release of her new single, Easy On Me.  

The singer dropped her first new track in five years on Friday, along with the music video - which sees the star, 33, pack up her house and drive away, as pages of sheet music flutter out of the windows onto the road.  

The highly-anticipated single was teased last week, along with the release of her upcoming album 30; and fans sat patiently on YouTube at midnight on Friday to hear the track for the first time - which is inspired by her divorce from Simon Konecki.

Adele revealed this week that Easy On Me, as well as 30, will be about the 'inner turmoil' she felt as she divorced ex-husband Simon.

The lyrics include the lines, 'We're both so deeply stuck in our ways, you can't deny how hard I've tried. I changed who I was to put you both first,' as well as, 'Go easy on me. I was still a child, didn't get the chance to feel the world around me, had no time to choose, what I chose to do, so go easy on me...'

She chants: 'I had good intentions and high hopes but I know it now probably doesn't even show.'

The video transfers from a black and white filter to colour halfway through, and starts with the singer on the phone, telling someone she's on her way and that she might lose signal.    

Fans voiced their approval on social media, with one simply penning: 'Adele’s new song = goosebumps! Never in doubt of that queen!'
