It's already one of the most anticipated album releases of 2014 and we're not even halfway through 2013. The world wants to know how the singer will top the titan of an album that was '21'. She's in the happiest place of her life - so expect some different themes. Join Capital as we run through a few possible suggestions for how the album could sound.
How it would sound: An up-tembo slap bass heavy take on the R&B surge that's making its way in pop once again. The world saw sneaky Richard Gere trying to get his hands on Adele's Oscar at the Academy Awards earlier this year and it would be a great way to get her own back! The song would features lyrics such as: "Hands off baby, this one's mine. Stay in Hollywood, you'll do fine."
How it would sound: A plodding piano beat would hold the entire track together as she plays up to the world's obsession to know her son's name. The track would only ever refer to him as 'Little Peanut' - as she affectionately calls him - and downplay any suggestion of Angelo. Maybe a small cameo from the young lad wouldn't go a miss as well with a "goo goo ga ga" here and there.
How it would sound: Like something Scooby Doo himself would be proud to put his name to. It would have the power of Adele with the cheeky wit and lyrics of Robbie - what better combination in the musical world can you think of? A murder mystery style music video would only be too fitting with the pair going on a Hardy Boys adventure to solve the crime.
How it would sound: The natural follow-up to 'Skyfall' that pays tribute to the secret agent franchise that gave her such success. It wouldn't necessarily be aimed for a future Bond soundtrack and could easily be adapted for the likes of Bourne, Mission Impossible or even Spy Kids!
How it would sound: An anthem for ladies all over - like 'Independent Women Part 3'. She was named the youngest earning musician for the second year running recently and could make a truly female empowering track to rival Destiny's Child's. A Pink Floyd 'Money' style intro with a few throw-a-way hip-hop bragging lyrics that would make 2 Chainz happy would also make something that truly takes everyone by surprise.
How it would sound: Imagine If Frank Sinatra was born in the 90s and sung the track of the same name today - this would be the song! It would still deliver the same 'I'm me and I sure aint going to change attitude' - something which the world continues to love about the grounded, and completely down to earth singer.
How it would sound: Soft, tender with Adele's vocals stealing the show as usual. She was once rumoured to be recording a whole album of nursery rhymes and this track would borrow characters from some of the most famous. It could also feature the character of a princess who grows up to take over the world - something she would know all about.
How it would sound: Built for the terraces of Tottenham Hotspur with tales of her love for her favourite football team. It would one day rival 'You'll Never Walk Alone' as the signature chant for a football team. Even Gareth Bale would stay at the club once he heard it!
How it would sound: The most pure taste of pop you could ever imagine from the singer. It would be a cheerful thank you note back to the Princess of Pop for all her kind comments in ELLE magazine recently. Even Bob the Builder's theme tune would sound depressing next to this slice of happiness.
How it would sound: Cheeky, bold, brash and packed with attitude. It would ultimately be the equivalent of the middle finger to all her critics and especially for being cut off at the BRITs back in 2012.
