At one point, she sings: "I swear to God I'm such a mess, the harder I try I regress."

And in another line, she adds: "Every day feels like the road I'm on, might just open and swallow me whole."

She then croons: "Let time be patient, let pain be gracious, just hold on. I will survive."

In the Amazon advert, a young woman is seen struggling during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Adele has already been honest about how she wrote about the breakdown of her marriage to Konecki and hopes it can help their son Angelo, nine.

She previously said: "I wanted to explain to him through this record, when he's in his 20s or 30s, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness.

"It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that's a real wound for me that I don't know if I'll ever be able to heal."
