Adele: “I Won’t Be Releasing A New Album For Another 2 or 3 Years”

Published: Saturday 10th Dec 2011 by Sam

After wracking up gargantuan success with her sophomore effort ’21’, chart force Adele has revealed that fans awaiting its follow-up are in for quite the wait.

Full story after the jump…

Named Billboard‘s Artist of the Year (a fitting title given the 12 million sales of ’21’), the 23 year old Londoner spoke to the publication about her plans for the future. Peep her soundbites:

 “I’m really looking forward to some time to do nothing. I imagine I’ll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven’t even thought about my third record yet. 

I’m just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just ‘be’ for a bit. I’ll disappear and come back with a record when it’s good enough. There will be no new music until it’s good enough and until I’m ready.”

When asked if any work had started on the follow-up to 21, she simply responded: “Nope!”

Spoken like a true ‘artist’.

Digressing a bit, it’s times like these which highlight the quality from the fodder. Indeed, Adele needn’t release an album every year, nor don an ever-changing array of wigs to stay relevant. No. Her music stems from experience, which takes time, resulting in a product that is both seasoned and rich.  No fast food hits.

That said, given the seemingly unstoppable success of ’21’, there’ll be an incredible amount of pressure to top it with her next release – be it tomorrow or in 2020. Time will tell if she can deliver.

Your thoughts?

  6. TinaMinaj December 10, 2011

    A little sad but its good. Her album is still selling like it was released a week ago so why take away from its success by having your work compete against itself.

  7. Reb’l Fleur December 10, 2011

    Rihanna should do the same as her… Take a 2 year break, then come back smashing!

  8. Kingphoenix December 10, 2011

    I knew this was going to happen…all that s*** at one time can be very overwhelming, i hope she gets the rest she needs and takes care of her self and maybe she will do some featured work and sound track material. I doubt that she will do a world tour though, but then again you never know. Good luck with the break, don’t loose your passion for music or get involved with people who will try to take advantage of you!

  9. White girl mob December 10, 2011

    We all know tha real reason why Adele ie taking a break cus kreayshawn debut album coming out next year! So adele dont want to drop a album tha same year kreayshawn album come out cus adel know kreayshawn can outsell her any giving day so her fat ass ran under a rock for a few years

  10. Army of queen Aaliyah & Lil kim December 10, 2011

    Adele Is Right She Has Snatched Enough Wigs And Has Slayed Countless CAREERS !

    (Sidenote) Do I See Some Nicki, Katy And Rihanna SHADE?! Hmm…..

  11. oh baby(b****** WILL deal) December 10, 2011

    exactly,that’s how it’s done Adele,taking notes from queen Bey i see 😉 But in all seriousness that’s a good look mama,atleast u’ll have people miss u unlike some artists that drop flop albums back to back year after year! 😀

  12. White girl mob December 10, 2011

    @army of queen – b**** what wig have this b**** snatch? Tha olny Thing she snatch was some cheese burgers with her fat ass b**** please.

    Kreayshawn on a whole another level tell Adele to catch up or kreay won’t give her nomore cheese burgers hahaha.

    We mobbing let us mob

  13. Dustin December 10, 2011

    Lol @ Adele even knowing that Kreayshawn exists.

    In any case I’m not the biggest fan of Adele. I like her a lot and she has an incredible voice. I always kinda thought she was like Amy winehouse for soccer moms though. Soulful, but a bit safe. I have mad respect for her and her process though. You can’t write new material for the purpose of releasing a new album. The quality will suffer. You have to write it only if you’re inspired. She reminds me of another white female with some serious soul, ms. Fiona Apple. Speaking of, LA Reid needs to release her new album, stat.

  14. MusicLover December 10, 2011

    Buhahahahahaha to the fool who said Kreyshawn can outsell Adele anyway and that’s why Adele is going on a break, I want you to have SEVERAL seats _/ <—–for you. Kreyshawn album wouldn't outsell Adele if she had Beyonce's, Jay Z, And Kanye featured. kill yourself if you EVEN THINK they compare. Adele sold 12 million albums do far and she's STILL selling 200K albums a week, like 21 was just released. To the Rihanna foool, YES Rihanna put out an album every year but your sadly mistaken if you THINK any of Rihanna albums were at any point #1 because she wasn't. Rihanna has never had a #1 album so she too needs to take a break, have a _/ and get some real music instead of these pot licker songs an radio hand she keeps putting out, because CLEARLY its not giving her the success YOU think she deserves, I on Te other hand don't care for her or her radio music. As for Adele taking a 2 year break, it's normal, Adele released 19 when she was 19 te album that got her not 1 but 4 Grammy's and it took her 2 years to release 21 so this is just the same. A GREAT artist doesn't need to put out an album every 9 mths to stay revelant. Real Artist can release an album in Feb and STILL her album sells like it came out last week. Adele *cough* is a real artist. Stop throwing Shade at her cause she cares nothing about the pot lickers you love, she just does her. Let her be

  15. YOOSONDALOOSE December 10, 2011

    Definitely the right move, her music and voice is amazing, but that she is working long and hard this will make it even better.

    She knows what she is doing and a break to recover her voice will also help.

    Well done Adele, definitely the right move and no one can then say she has become commercial.

  16. KAT DELUNA FAN December 10, 2011

    cant waiit slaydele !!

  17. White girl mob December 10, 2011

  18. Marvin December 10, 2011

    Well it was 3 years between 19 and 21 so it really isn’t surprising. But I LOVE Adele! She is amazing. She is like the only person that every person likes. Rihanna, Beyonce, and Ciara stans fight all the time but everyone, no matter who you stan for, loves Adele. I can’t wait for new music.

    GTFOH TRICK ! 😆 😆

  20. Dustin December 10, 2011

    … Who or what is v nasty? Is that some new super strain of Venerial disease?

    Anyway… I’ll be interested to see how adeles sound evolves from this record to the next. Here is to hoping she doesn’t name her next album after her age. Lol

  21. Ajim December 10, 2011

    After 19 , now 21 , next it’s going to be 23 . Adele , take some time and give us another great album next two years , maybe . Your 21 will be fresh forever and ever .
    Unlike Lady Gaga , Rihanna , Katy Perry , or even my favourite singer , Beyonce , their music didn’t last long cause right after they launch a new album such as Born This Way , 4 , Teenage Dream , Talk That Talk . But Adele , your 21 will be fresher and fresher beyond eternity .

  22. NICK December 10, 2011

    I like Adele, but I just do not see her doing this well again (I COULD B WRONG!) BUT IDK, we shall see., her time is gonna slip by & people are gonna be like oooo its the same ole same….

  23. ChrisBBeliever2 December 10, 2011

    This is why Adele will forever be my fav. 🙂 3 years will seem like forever, but I’m sure her next album will be worth the wait.

  24. Jay Jay December 10, 2011

    Rather have her take 2-3 years to compose an amazing album than make an album every year full of Dollar Menu fast food tracks

  25. Jay Jay December 10, 2011

    Plus it will build major anticipation for the next album

  26. JohnVidal December 10, 2011

    This is the right move for an artist like her
    2 or 3 years for making great music and also probably is going to be good for her voice
    One thing is for sure. Now the public knowing she is not coming back soon, “21” is gonna sell all that an album can sell nowadays, at least Xmas and then grammys sales are here for her. And also I think that these news are going to have an impact on grammy voters (if they have not voted already, I don´t know when they do it)

  27. arob December 10, 2011

    I wonder if she will be remembered though, 3 years is a long time. She did come on the scene killing h*** though, so maybe. I like that her and Beyonce are taking a break, we don’t need overload. Her voice needs a break anyways, good job Adele. 21 will probably keep selling for the next three years haha

  28. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. December 10, 2011

    She should take FLOPonce with her!!! The H** is washed up 😀

    When will Rihanna release another album ?? That’s more important 🙂

  29. ADELEISPHENOMENAL December 10, 2011

    She has the room to do it.She has sold 12 million copies of her latest cd and she is still breaking and setting records.You can’t rush greatness.Her next album will be even more PHENOMENAL!!!I will be buying it when it comes out.Someone releasing an album full of hits,has been very rare lately.Adele has been able to do that.I love her!Keep up the good work.

  30. QUEEN CASSIE COMING SOON !!! :D — MAD?— December 10, 2011

    DEAD !!! :D, B**** cannot outsold Jason Derulo LMAO!!!

  31. Misty Jean December 10, 2011

    Hopefully her successful wont end like other soulful British artists (Duffy, Joss Stone, Leona Lewis). They all had multi-platinum albums, but their next albums flopped.

  32. i2011 December 10, 2011

    White girl mob…girl boo! Please take 20 million seats! Adele probobly smoking her cigarettes laughing at yo senseless a*s! Don’t nobody give a fck about kreashawn as*! If anybody should be worried it would be someone in RAP! Adele sings! Now you are dismissed back to your one big room full of sh*t 😉

  33. Diane December 10, 2011

    Shut up with yo gloomy ass. She’s too freaking young to be so depressed. She should see a doctor.

  34. iSimplyDGAF December 10, 2011

    Her health is most important and I think its a really good idea. The world will be waiting patiently. 🙂 Get well Adele!

  35. Onyx December 10, 2011

    She knows that 21 was just good luck, she’s not the kind of artists people always want to see, is good the first time you heard her and everything but you get tired of her, because you want an artist who sing ballads and dance music, even is the voice is not as good as Adele’s voice, you want the whole package, God even Whitney has some Dance-Pop songs.

  36. Aimes December 10, 2011

    110% OVERRATED. JUST LIKE SUSAN BOYLE WAS… SHE’S DONE.

  37. “Slaydele” stans, can y’all wait 2 or 3 yrs? Or will you have moved on to someone else? December 10, 2011

    I hope her bandwagon is still around when she releases 23, 24, 25, 26…etc. (They won’t be, of course, because they’re all about the numbers and chart position, not the actual artist!)

  38. 100% REAL December 10, 2011

    That’s what’s up Adele! I think that would be a good idea. I think she already knows that if she keeps pushing it too much, it would cause people to start thinking and feeling that she’s over exposed. Plus, this will give her a good time to come up with some more artistic lyrics and music. It will also give the public a chance to miss her. That way when she comes back, they will be ready for her. With the success of, “21”, I guess Adele just wants everything to marinade for a minute. Don’t worry Adele, we will be here when you get back. :0)

  39. Army of queen Aaliyah & Lil kim December 10, 2011

    @KreyFLOP Stan
    Chileeeee ! Stop It ! Adele On Her Worst Day Will SLAY Your Wanna Be FLOP RAPPER ! I Cannot Take This BUFFOONERY, My Fave Aaliyah Can Out SELL Your FLOP Even In Death!

    NOW LORD GODGA CAN CONTINUE TO SNATCH WIGS!!

    SIPS MOSCATO!

  42. aisha aguilera keys December 11, 2011

    She sure ain’t worried about being forgotten.

  43. Popeater December 12, 2011

    I love her this reason!!!! You can feel the soul in her music. There are some artists who just won’t go away, and people grow tired of you. A true artist can stand the test of time, no need to release a new album every year, or every 6 months.

  44. rose January 2, 2012

    im gonna die rip me!!!!
