British soul sensation Adele has returned to the studio to record new music, just six months after giving birth.
The Rolling In The Deep hitmaker became a first-time mother in October (12) when she and her boyfriend Simon Konecki welcomed their son Angelo.
Adele now appears to have ended her maternity leave and started work on the follow-up to her chart-topping release 21, with the help of top British producers/songwriters, James Ford and Kid Harpoon, who have worked with acts including Florence Welch and Arctic Monkeys.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Adele wants to move with the times and is trying to make her new record sound as edgy as possible.
"The team she's assembled is first rate and she's confident they can help match the success of her first two albums. It's no easy task as the world will be desperate to hear it."
