Rumours around a new Adele masterpiece to be released in 2021 are getting more and more frequent. Here's everything we know so far about Adele's hints at a new album in 2021 and how it could lead to a massive post-pandemic comeback tour.

The album will be Adele's first new release after '25' but a lot has changed in the singer's life, who is now 32: she got married, had a son and then recently divorced. These could potentially be the topics behind some of her new lyrics.

Adele's last public appearance was in October as she was the host on Saturday Night Live. Introducing the show she mentioned that the reason why she was the host, and not the musical guest, was because "the album isn't finished yet". On her instagram she also hinted that fans will be hearing more from her in 2021.

Another hint that a new album is in the pipeline comes from Adele's BFF and RuRu Paul's Drag Race judge Alan Carr in an interview with Grazia UK - and the album could be released as soon as February. When asked 'whose album is rumoured to be coming out in February - Adele, Rihanna or Cardi B?', Alan replied, 'It's Adele, isn't it? I've actually heard some tracks on it. Oh my God, it's amazing - so amazing.'

Current lockdown restrictions in England still allow artists and music workers to access recording studios and perform without an audience. Former Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain could also have been one of the few early listeners of the new materials at Adele's top-secret recording session in London. "I just got to work on some new music for Adele," he told The Eddie Trunk podcast on SiriusXM. "To hear that voice in my headphones was getting me chills."

Is Adele announcing a new UK tour in 2021?

While hints at a new album are confirmed from most industry news and papers, the announcement of a tour might not follow suit. On one hand we are all aware of current covid-19 restrictions preventing artists to perform live in front of a big audience, on the other Adele herself never seem too convinced about performing on the road again. Approaching the end of her last world tour back in 2017 the singer told the NME “I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favourite artist have had on me live. And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don’t know if I’ll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home.”

However, as the live events industry will try to get back on its feet in the coming months. nobody could say whether the singer might reconsider, giving fans one of the biggest post-pandemic events they could ever expect.

What happened to Adele?

Adele's last album was over 5 years ago in 2015 with a global tour that finished in 2017. A lot has happened to the singer since then which could lead to new lyrics coming out in 2021. In 2016 she got married to charity entrepreneur Simon Konecki, father of her 8-years-old child Angelo. The couple went through a divorce in 2019 which was generally kept away from the media spotlight.

The singer also became a social media trending topic back in August after sharing a post on her Instagram showing a remarkable weight loss while posing with an African-style haircut and a bikini recalling the Jamaican flag to celebrate what would have been the weekend of London's Notting Hill Carnival. Many have accused the singer of "cultural appropriation" although several stars, including model Naomi Campbell, spoke up in her defence.
