It has taken four long years but Grammy-winning singer Adele is finally releasing her new album. The Someone Like You hitmaker is said to be planning on dropping her long-awaited third studio album in November after hinting at new music earlier in 2015.
US music website Billboard reports that the 27-year-old and her record label XL Recordings are finally ready to release her follow-up to her 2011 best-selling record 21. It was previously believed that Adele would be releasing her third album towards the end of 2014 as she had tweeted earlier that year: "Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year."
According to the publication, the Rolling In The Deep singer has hit the studio with a number of top producers including Danger Mouse and Max Martin, the latter of whom has worked with the likes of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder is also said to have teamed up with the musician once again. He previously wrote the track Rumour Has It for 21.
In June 2015, Happy hitmaker Pharrell Williams revealed his involvement with the album and explained that it has taken so long to record as the British singer has focused on being a mother to her two-year-old son, Angelo, whom she shares with boyfriend Simon Konecki. The producer said: "She's kinda like: 'OK, guys, I'm gonna open my diary for 20 minutes.' So it's like, OK, you have 20 minutes, or 32 minutes really. Then she gives it to you and closes it up and disappears, and she's off with her beautiful boy – and that's what it's all about."
Singer Phil Collins was also said to be recording with Adele while Brit award-winner Ed Sheeran admitted he has heard positive reactions to the record within music circles. He told radio station Capital FM: "I haven't heard [Adele's album], but everyone I know who've worked on it is just like: 'Dude... that record!' Apparently, it's really good."
Adele's second album 21 catapulted her to success around the world with the record selling more than 30 million copies globally, receiving platinum certification 16 times by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) and earning the songstress a total of seven Grammy awards.
