Adele 'singing nursery rhymes' rather than recording, Foo Fighters writing new album, Beach Boys won't reunite again... Music News Daily
Tuesday, 12 February
Adele says she has been too busy being a mum to work on her third album. The singer who won a Grammy at the weekend, is in Los Angeles until the Oscars but has done little recording. "I'm not very far along at all," she explained. "I'm having lots of meetings. I've been in LA for the whole time since the Golden Globes, and I will be until the Oscars. I've been having lots of meetings. I've been out of the loop really. I've been singing my baby nursery rhymes, so I don't really know what's cool and what's not." However one name, of course, is already in the frame for her next record: "I'm definitely going to visit Paul Epworth and stuff like that again."
