Adele has apparently started work on her fourth album (woop!).
It will be her first since 2015's massive 25, and fans everywhere are obviously excited.
But when will the album be released and what kind of thing can we expect this time?
Here's all the latest info as and when we get it...
An insider has told The Sun that Adele's fourth album will come out in time for Christmas in 2019.
Apparently, Adele has written a number of songs for her new album.
An insider told The Sun in June 2018: “She’s back in the UK and intends to write here. A number of studio musicians have been approached to work with her and she’s already penned some of the songs.”
Adele hasn't confirmed this yet, but she has previously said that 25 will be the last to be titled after her age at the time.
She also mentioned to James Corden in her January 2016 episode of Carpool Karaoke that her next album could be simply named Adele.
Her first three albums were named 19, 21 and 25, reflecting her age at the time of writing.
“This is the last album after my age,” she told Corden. “I believe in trilogies, yeah. The next one is just gonna be Adele.”
Adele has largely stayed out of the spotlight since promoting her last album in 2015. 25 sold more than 22 million copies around the world.
After completing her tour in summer 2017, she said that she would take a break.
She has been a high-profile supporter of the families affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy, after it occurred less than a mile from her Kensington home.
She has been seen at a couple of memorial services, including joining families to sing 'Lean on Me' a year on from the disaster.
Adele has also celebrated her 30th birthday, including a Titanic-themed party.
Dirty 30! I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the next 30 years as I’ve been blessed beyond words in my life so far. Thank you to everyone for coming along for the ride the last 11 years with me. My family and friends for entertaining my super fandom of the Titanic movie. Last night was the best night of my life. Here’s a couple pics. I’m absolutely fucked, not sure I’ll make it out the house again! Ps Childish Gambino how the hell do you have time to offer us so much greatness on so many platforms. I adore you x
