London, Dec 10 : British singer Adele has revealed that she may not record her next album for at least two or three years.
The 23-year-old singer has admitted in an interview with Billboard that she is in no rush to release a follow-up to album 21, the best-selling album of the year, which sold 4.8 million copies.
Billboard recently declared her the No. 1 artist of 2011.
"I'm really looking forward to some time to do nothing. I imagine I'll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven't even thought about my third record yet," The Telegraph quoted her as telling Billboard via an email.
"I'm just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just `be' for a bit. I'll disappear and come back with a record when it's good enough. There will be no new music until it's good enough and until I'm ready," she said.
The singer has said that she hasn't even begun writing songs for the next album.
"The surgery couldn't have gone better. But because I was singing with damaged vocal chords for three or four months and because of the surgery and because of the silence after the surgery I now have to build myself back up vocally," she said.
"It's gonna be a lot easier for me to sing now. And mentally I won't be worried about my voice on stage anymore. So I have to get used to that. That'll take most of January, so February I'll be singing properly!" she added.
