It's bad news for Adele fans as it has been confirmed the singer will not perform at this year's Glastonbury festival.

Rumours had been circulating for weeks that Adele would make her return to live performances by headlining the summer festival, but festival organiser Emily Eavis has confirmed otherwise.

Asked by The Sun if Adele would headline, she said, "That's not true. That's the only denial I will do. I would love Adele. To have Adele would be a complete dream, but she's not going to be here this year."

Adele has been keeping a low profile since she released her last record, 21, in 2011, as she took time out to be mum to her first child, baby boy Angelo.

The Sun recently claimed she's been working on her new album with producer-and-writer Greg Kurstin, who's helped stars such as Lily Allen, Ellie Goulding and Kelly Clarkson record hits.

Towards the end of last year it was reported Adele and Lady Gaga were working on a duet, which had fans in a frenzy.

The media storm died down when neither confirmed the gossip, but last month the 28-year-old US star posted a Twitter pic featuring the duo.

"Nothing like a Wednesday night bro-down with the beautiful Adele. (sic)," she captioned the shot.
