ADELE’S record label has said they don’t expect the singer to release a new album "for some years".

XL Recordings have confirmed that the singer has not began work on a follow up to ‘21’ and that work is not scheduled to begin in the immediate future.

‘21’ has sold over 24m copies since its release in January 2011, leading the record label to register a €50m profit last year.

The label has warned however that those figures will not be achievable every year: The next Adele album may not come for some years, and it's impossible to predict its likely sales," a spokesperson for XL Recordings told The New York Times.

"We therefore regard this year's figures as exceptional", the spokesperson continued.

The Grammy award winning songstress has recently released the theme song for the latest James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’.
