ADELE has revealed she’ll be releasing another album later this year.
The singer — who turned 26 on May 5 — revealed, albeit cryptically, on Twitter that her new record will hit shelves in 2014.
“Bye bye 25… See you again later in the year x,” she wrote, with a makeup-free photo of herself giving a “thumbs up” signal.
The Someone Like You singer named her previous two albums, 19 and 21, after the ages she was when she recorded them, and it looks like she’ll be doing the same for 25!
After a whirlwind year in 2011, Adele took a step away from the spotlight when she got pregnant. She and boyfriend Simon Konecki welcomed their first son, Angelo, in October 2012.
Recent reports claimed Adele — who has has not performed a full-length concert since suffering vocal problems in 2011 — was considering returning to the stage for the release of her third album, due out in October.
Sources say the Skyfall hitmaker sees London’s Royal Albert Hall as the perfect venue.
“This is the most exciting and promising news fans have had from Adele for ages,” said one music industry insider. “She is considering a comeback gig to promote her new CD.
“Her voice has been getting stronger over time and she has been working hard to rehabilitate it. A world tour is still a long way off, certainly a conventional series of shows.
“Everything will be on her terms. The key to all these plans is that Adele feels comfortable with her voice. She has vowed that she never wants to break down during a tour or put her voice through so much stress that she suffers problems. Her doctors warned her that stress could also mean more surgery, and she is adamant that she never wants to go through that again.”
Adele last performed a full 90-minute set in Glasgow on September 25, 2011.
“The delicacies of the situation are apparent to everyone from Adele to her management,” said the source.
“She is very settled with her family life and being a mum. A lengthy trip around the world with a baby on board could change that.”
