Adele has appeared to tease new music in an anonymous advert which aired during The X Factor in Britain tonight (October 18).

Viewers of the ITV show saw a thirty-second clip of a voice very similar to Adele's with the lyrics to the song flashing up in black and white on the screen.

The lyrics to the untitled song shown were: "Hello, it's me, I was wondering if after all these years, you'd like to meet to go over everything. They say that time's supposed to heal ya but I ain't done much healing."

It has been five years since Adele's second album, '21', came out and dominated the Offiial UK Album Charts for 23 weeks solid.

The singer's third offering is as yet untitled, but is rumoured to be called '25', in keeping with the age theme of her previous album titles (the first being '19').


Damon Albarn worked on new material with Adele, but said he doesn't think she will use it. He also referred to her new music as "very middle of the road".

The new material is also rumoured to include a song written by Tobias Jesso Jr, as well as appearances from OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, producer Danger Mouse and pop writer-producer Max Martin, who's best known for his work with ’90s pop acts N'Sync, Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys.

Earlier this year, producer Emile Haynie revealed he met with Adele in February to discuss potentially working together, but that the singer was "taking her time" over a new album. "We got along well as friends when we met in February and I hope we can cut some songs, but Adele is taking her time," he said. "I'd push for it to happen, but we’ll have to wait and see."
