Adele reportedly sets a date for her third album

November 20 rumoured to be the date new album will arrive

A date has reportedly been set for Adele‘s long-awaited third album.

According to Hits Daily Double’s Rumor Mill, the record will be released on November 20 with a lead single to come in the first or second week of November.

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 London 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”.

This new material is 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.”
