“All Night Parking” is an interlude by British singer-songwriter Adele, taken from her fourth studio album, 30. The song was written by Adele and includes a sample from the late jazz pianist Erroll Gardner.[1] “All Night Parking” serves as the eighth track on the album, and marks the first time an interlude appears on an Adele album; it is also the first time a featured artist appears on the standard edition of an Adele album. Its title was confirmed on November 1, 2021, when the album’s track listing was revealed online.[2]

Background and composition[]

“All Night Parking” was written by Adele and samples late jazz pianist Erroll Garner’s 1964 performance of “No More Shadows” for the BBC program Jazz 625.[3] Producer Joey Pecoraro incorporated the exact same sample into his 2017 song “Finding Parking.”

Lyrically, “All Night Parking” was inspired by a long-distance relationship that Adele had experienced shortly after her divorce from Simon Konecki, and the feeling of falling in love with someone new. “[It] was a great learning curve and nice to feel loved,” she told Rolling Stone, “but it was never going to work.”[4]

Lyrics[]

I know you’ve got things to do (I do too)
I just want to spend all my time with you (Feels so good)
I’m so hard to impress
Don’t leave me on this stretch alone
When I’m out at a party
I’m just excited to get home
And dream about you
All night long

I don't know how you got through to me (I’m so cold)
It’s all happening so easily (Like oh my God)
It’s so hard to digest
Usually I’m best alone
But every time that you text
I want to get on the next flight home
And dream next to you
All night long

Maybe it’s the way you remind me of (Where I come from)
Or how you make me feel beautiful (And then some)
The sight of you is dramatic
One glimpse and I panic inside
I get lost in our hours
‘Cause you possess powers I can’t fight
That’s why I dream about you
All night long

All night long
All night
