Billboard reports that Adele has worked on music with artists including One Republic's Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote the hit Rumour has It on her last album. She is also said to have collaborated with music producers Danger Mouse and Max Martin on the long-awaited new tracks.

Although the down-to-earth performer has stayed quiet about what fans can expect from her new material, Ed Sheeran claims to have heard that it's "really good".

The new album has a tough act to follow; Adele's album 21 sold over 11 million copies and won the Grammy award for Album of the Year in 2012. The singer subsequently won an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe for her song Skyfall, which she wrote for the James Bond film of the same name.
