So, as we all know, at the beginning of May, Adele thrilled her fans when she posted a very cryptic message on Twitter that said, "Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year x", implying that her third studio album was titled 25 and would be released later on in 2014. Some of her collaborators, specifically Ryan Tedder (who previously worked with her for the second and third tracks off of her sophomore album 21, "Rumour Has It" and "Turning Tables", respectively), Diane Warren, and Phil Collins, have all confirmed work on the album had begun and that they had finished their work on it, although Tedder confirmed at the Billboard Music Awards that he was going back into the studio with Adele. Other than that, we have heard nothing from Adele about the album's release.
Today, however, a music insider known as Paul Moss, previously thought to be Adele's publicist, confirmed that "the top 3 biggest selling UK female singers in recent years" were all slated for a fourth quarter release date for their new albums via his Twitter. One of them was, without a doubt, Adele, and another is presumed to be Emeli Sandé. Moss has previously proven to have inside knowledge about the music industry, specifically when he Tweeted about Adele's James Bond theme "Skyfall" before she had even confirmed it.
While it is a bit disappointing that she won't be releasing until the fourth quarter of 2014 (which typically spans from October to December), it is reassuring to note that someone with supposed inside information has discovered a release date from the album, and that proves that we could get the lead single by the end of summer if we are lucky. Be patient, Daydreamers! 25 is coming!
