Adele has said that she wants her next album to be more “acoustic and piano-led” than its predecessor ‘21’.

The ‘Rolling In The Deep’ singer also revealed that although she’s eager to start work on the follow-up as soon as possible, the recording process will take longer as she’s planning on producing and mastering the album herself.

Speaking to Q magazine, she said: “I’ve accumulated some things to write about again. I’d go into the studio tomorrow if I could."

“It won’t be a big production. I want it to be quite acoustic and piano-led. I want to write it, record it, producer it all and master it on my own."

“I think it’ll take a lot longer because I want to do it this way. When I move house in the summer, my sound engineer is going to come and help me install a studio and teach me how to use it.”

Adele – who was named as the most powerful person in the music industry in a list compiled by the Guardian earlier this year – also claimed that she did not feel under pressure to match the success of ’21’.

The singer’s second LP spent a record-breaking eleven weeks at Number One in the UK album charts, but she added: “I don’t really care about expectations. There was enough of it with this record."

“If you deliver the songs I think you get away with it. I’m not bothered. I’m not expecting my next record to be as big as this one. That’s impossible.”

Adele was forced to cancel tour dates in the US last month after she failed to recover from laryngitis. Her illness also reportedly forced her to turn down a duet with Beyonce at this year’s Glastonbury festival.
