Is the wait finally over?

For fans of Adele, it’s been a long three years since her last record was released. But given a new Internet report, have the details of her new album and tour been confirmed?

The soul diva set off the speculation herself in May when, a day before her 26th birthday, she Tweeted: “Bye bye 25 … See you again later in the year.” The last portion was taken as her hint that her next effort would drop by the end of 2015.

On Tuesday, the frenzy started again when the Twitter account for the World Music Awards apparently announced the name of the album and a tour: “#adele confirms 2015 Tour After The Release Of Her New Album 25!” The Tweet has since been deleted.

However, Martin Mills – chairman of Beggars Group, the parent company of Adele’s XL Recordings – told Billboard there is “no truth” to the Tweet. (The potential name would have been in keeping with her first two albums: 2008’s 19 and 2011’s 21, which were both nods to her age at the time.)

So what can we expect on the private singer’s ultra-secret next album? Possibly plenty of interesting collaborations!

Phil Collins told Rolling Stone that he’s been in the studio with Adele, and OneRepublic rocker-megaproducer Ryan Tedder confirmed to MSN Music that he’s returned to work with her again.
