Los Angeles: British soul sensation Adele is refusing to rush out her next album to capitalise on her huge popularity, saying it will be at least two years before she decides to release a new project.
The 23-year-old singer's album '21' has taken the pop charts by storm since its release in January and this week she was crowned the queen of online download website iTunes as her sophomore disc was named its 2011 bestseller.
'21' has also landed Adele six Grammy Award nominations - but the 'Rolling in the Deep' hitmaker has no plans to take advantage of her ever-growing fanbase until she's had time to fully recoup from her recent vocal cord surgery, reported Billboard.
"I imagine I'll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven't even thought about my third record yet. I'm just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just be for a bit. I'll disappear and come back with a record when it's good enough. There will be no new music until it's good enough and until I'm ready," she said.
And Adele also said that her carefree attitude towards her career comes from watching the late Amy Winehouse rise to fame on her own terms.
"I see no appeal in having a very specific plan as an artist. Who cares if people don't get it or don't like it? I'd rather trust myself, to like what I've done and stick to my guns than make music I don't like, wear clothes that don't suit me and flutter between genres because I'm scared I won't be relevant if I pass my 'sell by' date. Amy tattooed that in me," she added.
