Adele doesn't seem to be content with the formula that has propelled her first two albums to the top of the charts. The singer has revealed to Q Magazine that she intends to produce - and perhaps even master - he third long player. Adele's second album 21 sold a gargantuan 7 million copies worldwide in the 6 months after its release but she doesn't seem entire satisfied with the process which yielded such dramatic results.

"I want it to be quite acoustic and piano-led", she said. "I want to write it, record it all, produce it all and master it on my own". This would be a seismic shift from 21, which involved four writers and six producers. "I don't really care about expectations", Adele said. "If you deliver the songs I think you get away with it. I'm not expecting my next record to be as big as this one".
