Adele's Cryptic Tweet Suggests New Album Is On The Way!

If you're anything like us you've probably been watching Adele's incredible performance of 'Someone Like You' at the Brits 2011 and wondering when on earth she'll be releasing some new material.

Well, our prayers may just have been answered as the superstar songstress took to Twitter on Monday night, which just so happened to the the eve of her 26th birthday, suggesting her new album could well be out this year. Woo hoo!

"Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year," she wrote on the social media site.

Considering her previous two albums have been named after the age she was when she recorded them we're jumping the gun a little here and assuming her next album will be titled 25. Ergo she'll be seeing 25 "later in the year" means a new album. Surely!

Oh Adele you cryptic little so and so.

The rumour mill started turning back in March when singer-songwriter Ryan Tedder, who worked with Adele on her tracks 'Rumour Has It' and 'Turning Tables', confirmed he was collaborating with her on the new project... Also said to be in the mix is Wiz Khalifa and Phil Collins.

The last news we heard on the Oscar-winning singer was the slightly odd fact that she'd gone and bought herself a portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Yes, really!

According to The Daily Star the mum-of-one bought the never-seen-before artwork to hang in her home in Brighton.

Word on the street is that Adele asked artist Darren Coffield for the piece after being blown away by one of his paintings of Albert Einstein.

The artist, who likes to paint celebs upside-down, told the tabloid: "It's my ironic take on celebrity that made Adele come in to see my work. I did Kate Middleton and I'm sending that to her." Random.
