It was written by Adele and her frequent writing partner, Greg Kurstin, who also produced the song. "Water Under the Bridge" was released as the fourth single from 25 on November 4, 2016.[1]

The song is a more upbeat song, similar to "Rolling in the Deep". So far, it has charted at number 26 on the US Billboard Hot 100.[2] It was certified gold by the RIAA in 2017 for shipments of 500,000 copies in the US.[3]

Critical reception[change | change source]

When reviewing 25, Lewis Corner from Digital Spy wrote that Adele and Kurstin "strike upon a shimmering mid-tempo pop parade, as the London singer proclaims 'if you're gonna let me down, let me down gently' over the chewiest melody she's laid her vocals on. […] Adele's perceptive lyric and rich vocal makes it entirely her own."[4]
