For months, rumors of a new Adele album been swirling with unconfirmed reports that she's working on tracks with Harry Styles, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj. Last month, the singer's manager also revealed she's going to release new music this year, telling Music Week "the sooner [the album comes out] the better."
In May 2019, Adele hinted that new music was coming was when she turned 31.
"This is 31...thank f---ing god – 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all," she wrote on Instagram. "For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once."
"30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you," she added. "Chin up eh."
