Damon rumoured to be working on new Adele album

Damon Albarn rumoured to be working on new Adele album

The record will be the follow up to Adele's 2011 smash '21'

Damon Albarn is rumoured to be working with Adele on the follow up to her 2011 album '21'.

Albarn is said to have met the singer at his west London studio, although further details of the collaboration are yet to emerge.

As The Sun reports, an unnamed source close to Adele stated, "Damon and Adele had a chat about her new album and they could work together in future." They continued, "Adele's exploring loads of different avenues for the music and isn't rushing anything, but the album will be released next year."

The record will be Adele's first since '21', which has sold over 30 million copies and was the biggest selling album globally of both 2011 and 2012.

Meanwhile, Albarn recently said that his next projects following this year's solo album 'Everyday Robots' would be a musical based on a "beloved kids' book" and then possibly a new Gorillaz record.

Further work with Blur was, however, given less of a certain future, with the frontman stating that tracks recorded during their previous Tokyo sessions might never come out.

:lol:

Yeah, I think the safer assumption would be a Gorillaz track. Odd choice of collaborator though! On the other hand, if Damon actually does produce an entire Adele album, that could be a huge thing for him and I wish him the best. Would probably be a really unique finished product. Either way, I'm excited for whatever comes out of this. I'm not a fan of Adele's songwriting, but her voice and throwback style are ok in my book.

I thought this is the direction it would go.
Plastic Beach was a flop so the next album's going to have more obviously-profitable guests.
I'm sure it'll turn out fine. She's a good voice, after all.

i always liked adele's voice but couldn't really get passed anything other than Rolling in the deep.
it would be nice to hear her voice over some mad electro funk beat by damon/gorillaz. no disrepect to richard russell if oyu know what i mean

I'm not a fan of Adele's music, but she seems like a down to earth girl and has a great voice. Could be interesting.

that's true. it wasn't really a flop; more like an album planned to be the most pop gorillaz album released but wasn't in comparison to the first two albums.

It did good but not nearly as good as EMI wanted.
From what I recall that's the reason they cut the budget for the videos.
Stylo was a poor single choice IMO, had they picked Superfast Jellyfish I bet the numbers would have been better.

It was an excellent album, EMI just fucked the promo hardcore. Seriously hardcore.

Plastic Beach sold well in Britian (platinum disc) but it kinda dropped like a stone in America. The album didn't even go gold there (the first two albums sold about 2 million).

Albarn working with Adele sounds like a good idea. If they could do a big orchestral ballad along the lines of To The End that could be a massive hit.

Sure sounds like Gorillaz to me, I seem to remember an article 4/5 months ago written about a tweet that Adele made saying her album was already finished.
