Adele starts recording new album

2013-04-08 19:01
Los Angeles - Adele is set to start work on her third album.

The Rumour Has It hitmaker is reportedly recording with Arctic Monkeys producer James Ford and Florence + the Machine songwriter Kid Harpoon on an "edgy" record and is confident she can match the success of her previous LPs 21 and 19.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Adele wants to move with the times and is trying to make her new record sound as edgy as possible.

"The team she's assembled is first rate and she's confident they can help match the success of her first two albums.

"It's no easy task as the world will be desperate to hear it."

Just 'be' for a bit

The 24-year-old singer - who gave birth to son Angelo, her first child with fiancé Simon Konecki, last September - released 21 in 2011, three years after her debut.

Shortly after the release of her second record, the Skyfall hitmaker admitted fans could be in for a long wait for the follow-up.

She said: "I imagine I'll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven't even thought about my third record yet.

"I'm just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just 'be' for a bit.

"I'll disappear and come back with a record when it's good enough."
