*British singer Adele wants her new album to be full of soul, which is why she has reportedly teamed with R&B producer Raphael Saadiq to aid in the effort.
The project will be the follow-up to Adele’s “25” album, which she dropped five years ago. According to Gossip On This, the release date has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to The Sun, Adele has asked Saadiq to oversee her upcoming album. She has also collaborated with John Legend on several songs.
“She’s been a fan of Raphael since she was a teenager and loves his back-catalogue. She wants her next album to be full of soul, with a more eclectic sound,” a source told the British paper.
