Is the wait finally over?
For fans of Adele, it’s been a long three years since her last record was released. But given a new Internet report, have the details of her new album and tour been confirmed?
The soul diva set off the speculation herself in May when, a day before her 26th birthday, she Tweeted: “Bye bye 25 … See you again later in the year.” The last portion was taken as her hint that her next effort would drop by the end of 2015.
On Tuesday, the frenzy started again when the Twitter account for the World Music Awards apparently announced the name of the album and a tour: “#adele confirms 2015 Tour After The Release Of Her New Album 25!” The Tweet has since been deleted.
However, Martin Mills – chairman of Beggars Group, the parent company of Adele’s XL Recordings – told Billboard there is “no truth” to the Tweet. (The potential name would have been in keeping with her first two albums: 2008’s 19 and 2011’s 21, which were both nods to her age at the time.)
So what can we expect on the private singer’s ultra-secret next album? Possibly plenty of interesting collaborations!
“I’ve heard everything we’ve done, and I’m proud of it, or prouder of anything we did on the first album, and she is sounding even better than ever,” he said.
However, even he admits to being kept slightly in the dark!
“She will deliver the album on her own timetable, at her own pace,” he added. “And the only person that will ever declare it finished will be her, when she decides it’s finished.”
