Damon Albarn rumoured to be working on new Adele album

The record will be the follow up to Adele's 2011 smash '21'

Damon Albarn is rumoured to be working with Adele on the follow up to her 2011 album ’21’.

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 reports, 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.”

The record will be Adele’s first since ’21’, which has sold over 30 million copies and was the biggest selling album globally of both 2011 and 2012.

Meanwhile, Albarn recently said that his next projects following this year’s solo album ‘Everyday Robots’ would be a musical based on a “beloved kids’ book” and then possibly a new Gorillaz record.

Further work with Blur was, however, given less of a certain future, with the frontman stating that tracks recorded during their previous Tokyo sessions might never come out.
