Cold Shoulder

"Cold Shoulder" is the third single from soul singer Adele released from her debut album 19. Adele performed the song on Friday Night with Jools Holland on February 8, 2008. It was released digitally in Ireland on March 30, 2008 and in the UK on March 31, 2008. This is the only song on the album to be produced by Mark Ronson. A remix by Basement Jaxx has also been receiving airplay and is digitally available.

Criticism

The song has received some negative comments in the press and on internet forums for the introduction sounding too similar to that of Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack.

Music video

The video was shot in February 2008 in London. It has begun gaining airplay on UK music channels, and features Adele singing in a darkened room amongst melting ice statues who all have looks of despair. The video ends with many of the statues melted and Adele herself turning to ice.
