Adele Reveals There’s a 15-minute Version of “I Drink Wine”

The Sad Girls Olympics are underway and Adele could be making a play for the gold. Current medalist Taylor Swift has stood tall on the completely metaphorical podium since the release of the 10-minute version of her song “All Too Well” (not to mention the instinct hit that comes with a short film), but apparently writing very long first. heartbreaking hymn drafts is more of a thing than we think because there is a 15 minutes Adele’a’s version “I drink wine” somewhere in the universe.
