Adele recording new album?

Adele has reportedly started work on her third studio album.

The English singer-songwriter has allegedly begun writing and recording new material for the follow up to her best-selling, multi-award winning album 21.

Adele is currently enjoying family life with boyfriend Simon Konecki after the pair welcomed their first child together in October.

Although taking time off from her public life, the singer is rumoured to be performing her James Bond theme Skyfall at the Oscars next month.

The performance would be her first live appearance in over a year.
