Adele has said she will only record a new album when she has "something to sing about".

The singer, who released her hugely successful second album '21' in early 2011, told the Daily Mail that she was eager to start work on a new LP but said that a new batch of songs would come when "they were ready".

When told that fans were desperate to hear an album's worth of new material from her, she replied: "Tell me about it, so am I." Speaking about writing new tracks, meanwhile, she added: "They'll come when they're ready, and when I've got something to sing about."

Previously, Adele's camp have been coy about a release date for a new album from the singer. In October last year, her label XL Recordings admitted that a follow-up LP to '21' "may not come for some years".

'21 has been a remarkable commercial success since its release, and in December last year it became the fourth biggest-selling album of all time in the UK after its sales figures overtook Oasis's '(What's The Story) Morning Glory'. It has been no less popular in the US, either, with figures in January of this year revealing that it had become the country's biggest-selling album for the second year in a row.

Last weekend, meanwhile, Adele won an Oscar for her Bond theme 'Skyfall'. The singer, who won the prize for Best Original Song with her co-writer Paul Epworth, also collected a Golden Globe and Brit Award for Best British Single for the same track.
