The star is currently not working towards a release date for the follow-up to 2011's '21'.

Adele's record label has warned that fans may have to wait for the singer's follow-up to her critically acclaimed second album '21'.

The star's hit record, which was released at the start of 2011, won multiple Grammy Awards and helped her record label XL welcome a 400 percent revenue increase last year.

But a spokesperson for the label has said it may be some time before Adele releases the follow-up.

"The next Adele album may not come for some years, and it's impossible to predict its likely sales," the company said in a statement to the New York Times.

The star, who is currently expecting her first baby, also said earlier this year that she had no release schedule for her third album.

Adele was the big winner at the Grammy Awards in February thanks to her second album '21':

Meanwhile, Adele recently released her theme tune for the new James Bond film Skyfall.

The track will feature in the opening credits to the movie, which goes on general release on 26th October with Daniel Craig once again playing the 007 agent.
