LONDON — It’s her first new thing in years, six minutes long and features Tristan Wilds from The Wire, but there’s only one thing anyone cares about in Adele’s new video: the massively retro flip phone.

The ancient device makes an appearance really early on in the clip – long before Adele starts singing – as she says to someone, “I just got here and I think I’m losing signal already.” It might be no surprise given the backwards brick she’s trying to call them on.
