Adele has revealed on Instagram that she doesn't actually know when her new album is being released.
In June, Adele's manager Jonathan Dickins confirmed to Music Week that the album wouldn't be arriving in September, "It isn’t coming in September, it’ll be ready when it’s ready. We’re all in the same boat, you’re doing stuff and then all of a sudden, the world stops. It’ll come when it’s ready. I can’t put a date on that yet. We have music, but we’re still working."
Over the weekend Adele shared a new post on Instagram praising a Glennon Doyle book. One fan wrote in the comments, "Adele where’s the album?" Adele responded, "I honestly have no idea."
If you’re ready - this book will shake your brain and make your soul scream. I am so ready for myself after reading this book! It’s as if I just flew into my body for the very first time. Whew! Anyone who has any kind of capacity to truly let go and give into yourself with any kind of desire to hold on for dear life - Do it. Read it. Live it. Practice it. We are a lot! But we are meant to be a lot! .. “A good life is a hard life!” Read this book and have a highlighter on hand to make notes because you’ll want to refer back to it trust me! I never knew that I am solely responsible for my own joy, happiness and freedom!! Who knew our own liberation liberates those around us? Cause I didn’t!! I thought we were meant to be stressed and disheveled, confused and selfless like a Disney character! ProBloodyFound!! You’re an absolute don Glennon
Last year Adele was announced as a featuring artist on two tracks that turned out to be fake. The first was OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, who joked that he had a song with Beyoncé, Adele, and Chris Martin. Soon after Nicki Minaj made a similar comment, where she claimed to have already shot a music video for an upcoming collaboration with Adele. The day after Minaj revealed she was being "sarcastic".
