It’s Adele’s 26th birthday — and she may have just dropped a major hint about her next album. “Bye bye 25,” the Grammy-winning singer tweeted Monday. “See you again later in the year.”
Fans believe that “25” will be the name of the British singer’s next album — following her pattern with age-titled “21” and “19.”
If the rumors are true to live and “25” is set for release, it will be theGrammy-winning singer’s first album since 2011, when “21” became the year’s best seller, a feat it repeated in 2012.
It brought its creator six Grammys and became the first album to go double platinum on iTunes in the United States. The British singer was quite successful in 2012 and 2013, lending vocals to “Skyfall,” the latest James Bond theme song that earned her a Golden Globe and Oscar.
“Thank you so much to the academy for nominating this record for 6 Grammys!!! This has been the best year as it is but to end 2011 with this incredible achievement and honour is beyond anything I can express,” Adele told her fans after receiving the award.
“Thank you to every single person who has taken a shining to this record, for making it have such an impact, this record has taken on a life of its own thanks to you. I made the record and you’ve made it what’s its become,” said the singer at the time.
“She is considering a comeback gig to promote her new CD,” a source close to the singer reportedly told reporters some time ago. “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.”
“This is the most exciting and promising news fans have had from Adele for ages,” the source, familiar with the matter, said of the upcoming album.
“Everything will be on her terms …. 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.”
Rumors that the British star has been working on new music album began swirling late last year, and in March, OneRepublic singer Ryan Tedder confirmed to reporters that he works with Adele.
“It’s going to be like Portishead meets Weird Al Yankovic… Just kidding. I haven’t heard everything she’s done, but I’ve heard everything we’ve done and I’m as proud of it, or prouder of anything we did on the first album, and she is sounding even better than ever. She will deliver the album on her own timetable, at her own pace, and the only person that will ever declare it finished will be her, when she decides it’s finished,” he said in one of his interviews.
