In today's bummer news, Adele will not release an album this year. Rumors about new music have circulated for months, but the New York Times now reports that we shouldn't expect a new album from her until at least next year.
According to a statement in her label's, XL Recordings, financial report, "There will not be a further new release by Adele during 2014 and consequently there will be a fall in XL’s turnover and profits." The report was filed on Thursday in Britain, where XL is headquartered. The report also noted that Adele's back catalogue -- namely her 2011 album "21," which sold over 25 million copies -- counted for a "significant proportion of the sales and profit" in 2013.
Adele fueled the rumor mill earlier this year when she tweeted a cryptic message in May: “Bye bye 25… See you again later in the year." Many fans took this to mean that she would release new music by the end of 2014, but, alas, they were wrong. May we suggest soothing your weary hearts with Aretha Franklin's new cover of "Rolling In The Deep"?
