Fans of Adele are worried that the singer has pushed back her new album due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The singer was scheduled to release her fourth album in the autumn, after reportedly telling guests at a friend’s wedding to “expect my album in September”.

On Saturday night, Adele was among 400,000 people to tune into a virtual battle concert between music producers Babyface and Teddy Riley on Instagram Live, which saw each artist perform three songs before postponing the event due to glitches in the audio.

Lamenting the technological struggles in the comment section, Adele wrote: “Come on, it’s 2020 – we ain’t meant to get what we want!”

Many fans took this as a sign that the singer was joining the likes of Lady Gaga, Sam Smith and Haim and pushing back the release of her album until 2021 due to the global healthcare crisis.

Adele last hinted at the release of new music when she turned 31 in 2019, writing on Instagram, “30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean into it all,” she wrote.

“No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s OK. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.”

She joked: “30 will be a drum'n'bass record to spite you.”

Adele’s last album, 25, was released in 2015 and sold 22 million copies worldwide, winning Album of the Year at the Grammys and Record and Song of the Year for “Hello”.
