It’s official: Adele is set to release new music this year.
Her manager, Jonathan Dickins, told Music Week that she’ll finally follow up her 2015 smash album 25 adding, “the sooner [it comes out] the better.”
The singer hinted at new material last year in an Instagram post celebrating her 31st birthday.

This is 31…thank fucking god 💀 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once. Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually 😂 Bunch of fucking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you. Chin up eh ❤️
At the time she jokingly threatened a drum n’ bass record (would 100% listen, not gonna lie).
2019 had been a tough year for Adele, splitting from her husband, Simon Konecki.
The couple had been together for seven years and share a son, Angelo Adkins, 7.
