Adele has begun work on her third album with songwriter Ryan Tedder, though the OneRepublic frontman has no idea when the record will be released.

Rumours of a new album from the singer have been circulating since last year with Phil Collins claiming that he was writing songs with her. Now Tedder has also confirmed that he too is writing with Adele, having previously written songs including 'Rumour Has It' and 'Turning Tables' from her second album '21.'

"I haven't heard everything she's done, but I've heard everything we've done and I'm as proud of it, or prouder of anything we did on the first album, and she is sounding even better than ever," Tedder told MSN Music.

However, Tedder remains in the dark as to if and when the album will actually be released: "She will deliver the album on her own timetable, at her own pace, and the only person that will ever declare it finished will be her, when she decides it's finished."

In April 2013, it was reported that Adele had started work on her follow-up to '21', which has now sold over 26 million copies worldwide. According to the report, the singer was in the studio with Simian Mobile Disco's James Ford and singer-songwriter Kid Harpoon, who has previously worked with Florence & The Machine and Jessie Ware.
