Everybody’s been waiting for Adele’s new record since 2014…and we might ACTUALLY be able to hear it soon!
The singer has been hinting at a follow-up to her 2011 blockbuster, 21 for more than a year but this Fall she’ll finally be able to make good on her promise of a November release on something NEW. So what’s the deal with the album? Here’s what we know…
According to Billboard, Danger Mouse has been working on the album, and Max Martin has contributed a single. Canadian singer-songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. also has written a (reportedly, standout) track, and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder is back in the mix after producing and co-writing “Rumour Has It” on 21. (Yeah, I know, a OneRepublic dude co-wrote Rumour Has it?! WEIIIIRRRDDDD)
Adele and her team are super silent about the whole thing, as obvi there’s a LOT of pressure surrounding its success. Her sophomore LP sold over 11 million copies and was the top-selling album of the year in both 2011 and 2012, SO, you KNOW. In July, Ed Sheeran told the U.K.’s 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.”
Are you excited for her new album?!?!
