Adele planning to record some songs and release them

We’re all saved! Adele is working on her next album. Or so says The Sun.

A “music insider” – was it you? – tells the tabloid: “She’s back in the UK and intends to write here. A number of studio musicians have been approached to work with her and she’s already penned some of the songs”.

Sounds good to me. The album will be Adele’s first without the involvement of indie label XL, their contract having expired after the release of 2015’s ’25’. She was poached by Sony Music for a reported £90 million two years ago. She had already been allied with the major in the US for some time, of course, via a partnership between the indie and the major.

As for titles, depending on the time period she focuses on in her songwriting, this album could be called anything from ’26’ to ’31’. Shall we have a sweepstake? I’ll take ’29’. Everyone send me a quid and put in your guesses. Of course, she could screw us all over and ditch the whole age-I-was naming convention thing. As a back up, I’ll also take ‘Adele-ightful Age To Be’ as a possible alternative album title.

The record is apparently scheduled for a Q4 2019 release. So when the streaming market inevitably collapses next summer, at least we’ll have a new Adele album to look forward to.
