Adele Suggests That New Album, '25,' Will Be Released Later This Year

The singer posted a birthday tweet teasing new album.

Adele has celebrated her birthday this week by posting a tweet that seems to hint her new album will be released later this year - and that it will be called "25."

The singer turns 26 today (5 May) and took to Twitter last night to post a picture of herself with the caption "Bye bye 25 ... See you again later in the year x." Unless she's let slip a secret ability to time travel, this seems to suggest a new album is on its way.

Adele's previous two albums, "19" and "21," were named after the age she was when they were written - so it seems likely that her third offering will be named "25."

The singer rose to fame in the UK six years ago, when she was awarded both the Brit Awards Critics' Choice award and the BBC Sound of 2008.

Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year x

    I don't know but naming your album after how old you were when you made it just irks me. At the same time if that's the only thing I can complain about I guess that's good
    Hope she releases it before "27" because a lot of musicians don't make it to "28."
    so this year's pop radio will be dominated by adele and lana del rey, well I can't really complain about that.
    Great singer, and unlike many pop stars can replicate her studio performances live. Looking forward to her next album.
    Ughhh, well I know later this year I'll be avoiding stores for the next year. Last wave of her music got to be too annoying and it was played everywhere. I don't listen to music just because a voice is impressive, and her lyrics were not appealing at all, and the popularity of her music drove me insane as it was unavoidable.
