While Adele‘s new album, originally due in September, has now been postponed due to COVID-19, it apparently hasn’t stopped the award-winning superstar from working on the project.
A source dished to the U.K. tabloid The Sun that Adele is “pouring her heart and soul into this record, including how she feels post-divorce,” and has recruited two acclaimed artist/producers to work with her on the project: John Legend and Raphael Saadiq.
A former member of the group Tony! Toni! Toné!, Saadiq has worked with the likes of Mick Jagger, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder and Lionel Richie, among dozens more.
“She’s been a fan of Raphael since she was a teenager and loves his back catalog,” blabbed the source. “She wants her next album to be full of soul, with a more eclectic sound.”
When it’s released, Adele’s new album will be the follow up to 2015’s Grammy-winning project 25.
