[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Adele[/lastfm] has told us time and time again that she will be taking her time with her next album, claiming it might be another two years before fans get to hear new tunes. Well, it looks like she changed her tune! See what she had to say to a French radio station and see who she would ideally like to do a duet with after the jump!
Adele told the French radio station she will have a new single out by the end of the year, but her next album will take “a good two years” to record. She also talked about the success of this record, 21. “If I didn’t write my own songs, I’d be out next week with a new album,” she said.
“I have to take time and live a little bit. There were a good two years between my first and second albums, so it’ll be the same this time.” Adele added that she was not worried about recreating the success of 21, which has now sold more than 20 million copies around the world.
“I don’t think I’ll feel the pressure for the next album to be as big as the last one because I know that’s not really possible,” she said. “What’s happened with this album is very rare anyway.”
She said her ideal duet partner would be the late Etta James but she would also like to sing with[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Beyonce[/lastfm].
“I adore [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beyonce[/lastfm], I’ve been listening to her since I was about 11,” she told NRJ. “I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable in terms of the length of her career and how she’s grown and grown but most of my inspirations are (from) old music and sadly they have all died.”
