Adele ‘to release new album in 2019’ as she begins writing next record

"She’s already penned some of the songs.”

Adele has reportedly begun work on her next record, the first release since 2015’s ’25’.

The global megastar, 30, reportedly met with music bosses earlier this month and plans to spend this summer writing the record.

According to The Sun, she’s working towards a planned release date of Christmas 2019.

A source told the paper: “She’s back in the UK and intends to write here. A number of studio musicians have been approached to work with her and she’s already penned some of the songs.”

The new update marks one of the first major developments for Adele since vocal chord damage forced her to cancel two Wembley Stadium shows in 2017.

She has also been a vocal supporter of the families affected by the Grenfell Tower blaze, after it broke out less than a mile from her Kensington home.

She was seen attending a memorial service to mark one year since the blaze, having previously attended the scene to comfort victims and their families with her husband Simon Konecki.

In the days following the blaze , she also visited a local fire station for ‘tea and cuddles’, and treated children from Grenfell to a private screening of Despicable Me 3 last August.

“They’re not receiving the things we think they are. It’s a fucking mess. No information is getting through, people feel helpless,” she said on-stage during a concert at Wembley Stadium. “No one knows what they’re doing down there, it’s chaos.”
