Bad news for Adele fans as new album has been delayed
Adele's album has been delayed until September.
The 'Skyfall' singer had been expected to bring out her third LP - the long-awaited follow-up to 2011's '21' - this spring but the release has been pushed back again following a number of delays.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "The album is currently scheduled for release in September.
"The most recent plan was for it to hit shops before the summer but that's now been scrapped. Adele's taking her time to make sure the album is perfect and doesn't want to compromise."
Adele - who took a break from music after having son Angelo, two, with partner Simon Konecki - sparked speculation her album would be released late last year with a tweet on her 26th birthday.
The star, who named her previous albums '19' and '21' after her ages when she recorded them, posted: "Bye bye 25. See you again later in the year."
In October 2014, her record label was forced to confirm she would not be releasing new material that year.
Adele has worked with a number of artists on the record, including Damon Albarn, Ryan Tedder and Phil Collins, but it was recently claimed she still hasn't selected a producer for the album.
Producer Emile Haynie - who met up with Adele in February to discuss the possibility of working together on the record - said: "Adele was awesome, but I don't know if we'll be working together.
"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.
"I'd push for it to happen, but we'll have to wait and see."
