Adele has reteamed with Phil Collins as she puts the finishing touches to her new album, 25.
Adele and Phil Collins have returned to the studio to finish recording her latest album together.
While the talented duo were first linked back in late 2013, with Collins asked by the songstress to collaborate on some new music for her album 25, their union was only fleeting. Collins even joked he feared he had "failed the audition" as he hadn't heard from her again.
According to British newspaper The Mirror, the new mother simply "put all her work on hold for a while" and the delay "wasn't anything personal".
The pair have now picked back up where they left off, with Adele having spent the past month in the studio in Los Angeles as she puts the finishing touches to the follow-up to her critically-acclaimed 2011 album, 21.
"Over the past few months, Phil has been working on the tracks once again. She did tell Phil that she was prioritising her personal life at that time, but now that she's back in work mode their track is happening once again," a source tells the newspaper.
The Academy Award-winning musician previously spoke of the pair working together, admitting that when he never heard back from the singer he assumed he had missed out on the opportunity.
The 64-year-old was under the impression the album would be released last year - and he wasn't the only one.
The mum-of-one seemed to hint as much when she tweeted on her 26th birthday: "Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year."
However, it seems that producers are allowing the fellow Oscar-winning star all the time she needs to complete a record she is 100 per cent happy with.
Producer Paul Epworth insists the release "will come when it's ready" and not a moment before.
Along with Collins, Adele's new album may also contain an A-list collaboration with Lady Gaga, with the two pictured dining together in recent weeks.
She's also been seen with One Direction's Harry Styles, who is said to be branching out into song writing.© Cover Media Group 2015
