Songwriter/producer Emile Haynie recently stated that Adele is “taking her time” on her new album, expected to be named ’25’. The producer, who has previously worked with Kanye West, Eminem, Lana Del Rey and Bruno Mars, told The Daily Star that he met with the singer 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,” he said. “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 millennium, with sales of 4.74 million since its release.

In May 2014, Chad Smith also spoke about the early stages of writing the album.
