Producer Emile Haynie says Adele is ‘taking her time’ on new album

Adele's '21' was released in 2011 and has sold over 4.74 million copies

Producer Emile Haynie has said that Adele is ‘taking her time’ over a new album.

The producer has previously worked with Kanye West, Eminem, Lana Del Ray and Bruno Mars. In an interview with the Daily Star, he confirmed he met with Adele in February to discuss potentially working together and that the singer was in no rush to release 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.”

“I’d push for it to happen, but we’ll have to wait and see.”

Fans are eagerly awaiting Adele’s third album. Her debut ’19’ was released in 2008, followed by ’21’ in 2011.

’21’ was recently announced as the best selling album this millenium, with sales of 4.74 million since its release.

At the start of the year, producer Paul Epworth echoed Haynie’s comments.

Speaking to Billboard about the follow-up to ’21’, which he worked on, Epworth explained that her third album is still something of a mystery to him: “I’ve got nothing,” he said. “There are no clues.”

It was recently rumoured that Damon Albarn was working with Adele on her next LP. Albarn is said to have met the singer at his west London studio, although further details of the collaboration are yet to emerge.

As The Sun reported at the end of last year, an unnamed source close to Adele stated, “Damon and Adele had a chat about her new album and they could work together in future.” They continued, “Adele’s exploring loads of different avenues for the music and isn’t rushing anything, but the album will be released next year.”
