Adele may be working on a new album, and here’s everything we know

It’s been almost a year since Adele penned an emotional letter to fans stating that she might never tour again. But that definitely doesn’t mean she won’t be making new music — and we may have some very good news regarding when that new music is coming our way. reported yesterday, June 24th, that Adele plans to release her next studio album by Christmas 2019. The Grammy Award-winning artist reportedly attended a meeting at Sony’s London headquarters earlier this month to discuss the project.

"She's back in the U.K. and intends to write here," an anonymous music insider told The Sun. "A number of studio musicians have been approached to work with her, and she's already penned some of the songs."

There’s no word yet on what the upcoming album will be called, and, given that Adele herself hasn’t confirmed the project, there’s still a chance it could just be rumor (although we really hope it’s not). The singer seems to be enjoying her time off: She officiated a friend’s wedding, had an epic hang-out with Amy Schumer, and even hosted a giant Titanic-themed party for her 30th birthday. So we’d certainly understand if she chose to take more time for herself (and let’s not forget she also announced she definitely wants to work on having more kids).

We support you, Adele — whatever you decide (and also, feel free to invite us to your 31st b-day). Meanwhile we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more news about a potential new album.
