Adele lied to us.
Following her big win at this year's GRAMMYs, she told Vogue that she planned on "f**king off for four or five years.” “If I am constantly working, my relationships fail," she explained. "So at least now I can have enough time to write a happy record. And be in love and be happy." Adele is now changing her tune, claiming that she'll release new music by the end of 2012.
And though it's still unofficial, the Internet rumor mill suggests that the song could be Adele's theme for the upcoming James Bond film (the 23rd!), Skyfall, which hits theaters on November 9.
Don't expect a full album anytime soon, though. "If I didn't write my own songs, I'd be out next week with a new album," she said. "But because I write my own songs, I have to take time and live a little bit. There was a good two years between my first and second albums, so it'll be the same this time."
And when her next album does finally arrive, Adele won't have any unrealistic expectations of it repeating the massive success of 21. "I don't think I'll ever feel the pressure for my next record to be as big as the last one, because I know that's just not really possible," she explained. "What's happened with this one is very rare."
