Adele 'Will Deliver New Album On Her Own Timetable'
OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder also quashes reports that the star has a fear of performing live...
Songwriter Ryan Tedder has revealed there is no confirmed release date for collaborator Adele's eagerly-anticipated third album.
Following the huge global success of the Someone Like You singer's sophomore album 21, there has been much speculation over when Adele will unleash some new material.
He explained: "I haven't heard everything she's done, but I've heard everything we've done and I'm as proud of it, or prouder of anything we did on the first album, and she is sounding even better than ever.
"She will deliver the album on her own timetable, at her own pace, and the only person that will ever declare it finished will be her, when she decides it's finished."
When asked about rumours that Adele is scared of performing live, Tedder was keen to respond: "I personally wouldn't use the word fear, from conversations I've had with her, I don't think she has a fear of it.
"She's a mother, she has a young kid. When you sell 30 million albums, on one album, she can do whatever the hell she wants to do until forever."
Tedder added: "So if she decided to tour I'm sure it will be the most incredible tour ever and if she decides not to, it will have no bearing on how amazing the album itself is because she's one in a million, one in a hundred million, one in a billion."
