Adele is putting her heart and soul into her new album.
As per The Sun, the British superstar has reported enlisted R&B titans John Legend and Raphael Saadiq for her upcoming LP. "Adele is pouring her heart and soul into this record, including how she feels post-divorce," an insider revealed in reference to her split from her husband Simon Konecki in 2019. Additionally, the report revealed that the comeback kid has tapped Saadiq to "oversee" the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2015’s 25. "She’s been a fan of Raphael since she was a teenager and loves his back catalogue. She wants her next album to be full of soul, with a more eclectic sound," the source added.
Back in June, the chart-topper’s manager, Jonathan Dickins, confessed that the album, which was originally due in September, had been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "It isn’t coming in September. It’ll be ready when it’s ready," Dickins told Music Week. "I can't put a date on that yet. We have music, but we're still working."
Dickins isn’t the only one who mentioned a pushback in release. Adele did so herself when she addressed the delay in the album's release via Instagram. “Of course it’s not. Corona ain’t over. I’m quarantining. Wear a mask and be patient," she responded.
