|Song by Adele|
A popular conspiracy among fans was that "Haunted Skies" was too similar thematically to the Ryan Tedder-produced "Turning Tables", which even featured the line, "Under haunted skies, I see you." Some even believed "Haunted Skies" was an earlier version of "Turning Tables"; however, Tedder co-wrote and produced "Turning Tables", while Epworth co-wrote and produced "Haunted Skies", invalidating these claims. A similar controversy was brought up with the song "Saviour", another unreleased track whose title was also a lyric used in "Turning Tables", and "Waiting for You", whose title bears lyrics from "I'll Be Waiting."
"Haunted Skies" was a last-minute cut, as it was originally placed as the album's sixth track, preceding "Rolling in the Deep."
