Adele Readying New Album? Songwriter Confirms New Work

Will Adele return to music with a new studio album this year? According to songwriter William Orbit, he has been tapped to do some writing for the upcoming follow up to her massive album "21."

"I know I’ll be doing some writing with Adele in the new year. I’ll be in Las Vegas in the new year too. I work in a studio there. I’ll be there with Britney I hope. Other than that, just keeping healthy and wise," Orbit shared in a recent interview with M magazine.

It's unclear how far along Adele is on the anticipated album.

Adele's "21" has sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone since its release. Over 4.8 million copies were also purchased in the UK.
