Adele will release new music this year: "And though it's still unofficial, the Internet rumor mill suggests that the song could be Adele's theme for the upcoming James Bond film (the 23rd!), 'Skyfall,' which hits theaters on November 9. Don't expect a full album anytime soon, though. 'If I didn't write my own songs, I'd be out next week with a new album,' she said. 'But because I write my own songs, I have to take time and live a little bit. There was a good two years between my first and second albums, so it'll be the same this time.'" FUSE
