In FADER #62, we published a feature about Phoenix that was also about Paris and breaking up. Peter Macia traveled to France in the spring and wrote that the, "sparkling streets that held so much promise a few months earlier now seemed lined with dark corners." There are no pastel blooms in that story and also none in Adele's new video for global-phenomenon "Someone Like You." In it, she steps along the Seine in a glamazon black trench and tatty bouffant. She looks heart-stop good, dead serious and still mad, but maybe ready to forgive.
