Adele is back in the studio working on the follow-up to 2011's '21', according to tabloid reports.

According to The Sun, the singer is back in the studio for the first time since giving birth in October. She is also reported to be working with James Ford and Kid Harpoon, who worked on Arctic Monkey's 'Humbug' and Florence and the Machine's 'Lungs' and 'Ceremonials'.

A source quoted by the newspaper said: "Adele wants to move with the times and is trying to make her new record sound as edgy as possible. The team she’s assembled is first rate and she’s confident they can help match the success of her first two albums. It’s no easy task as the world will be desperate to hear it."

Meanwhile, there have been reports that a future Adele album could feature a collaboration with Robbie Williams. Adele has previously said that if she were to record with another singer, Williams would be her favoured partner. "I'm not in doing collaborations," she said in 2009. "I love to sing with people live rather than on record. If I could do one with anyone - Robbie? Any day."

Last month, Adele said that she will only record a new album when she has "something to sing about". Previously, Adele's camp have been coy about a release date for a new LP from the singer and in October last year, her label XL Recordings admitted that a follow-up to '21' "may not come for some years".
