Ukulele Video Lesson - Send My Love (Adele)

A ukulele video lesson is one of the best ways to learn how to play many songs, including “Send My Love (To Your Lover)” by Adele. This song is a bit of a departure from the usual Adele fare in the fact that it has a calypso style to it, which actually makes it a perfect choice for playing on the ukulele.

What's the song about?

Like a number of songs on her earlier 21 album, “Send My Love (To Your Lover)” the song’s lyrics refer to a former boyfriend. She liked the upbeat sort of feel to the song and the calypso style, and actually wanted this to be the first release from her 25 album. However, they ultimately decided it would be better to go with Hello, as they felt that the song would give fans a better idea of the album overall.

She says that the song was about falling in love again and moving on from the former boyfriend. She said that when you find that new love, it “puts me in a position where I can finally reach out a hand to the ex. Let him know I’m over it.” Ultimately, it was about being happy that you are finally over an old relationship.

The very first version of the song was put together quite some time ago. She claims that she wrote the earliest version of the song when she was just 13 years old. At that time, the original title of the song was “We Ain’t Kids No More.” 

The song’s final version was written by Adele, Max Martin, and Shellback. Martin and Shellback handled the production duties on the song. It released in May of 2016, and it was immediately popular with fans. It was able to show a different side of the singer. Even though most know that Adele is funny and outgoing from her public appearances, the songs on her albums tend to be a bit on the darker side of the pop spectrum. With “Send My Love (To Your Lover)”, it shows a different side to the songstress.

As with many of Adele’s songs, there are already quite a few YouTube covers from people who have fallen in love with the song. Now, you can learn how to cover the song on ukulele!
