Adele, Take That and 1D to do battle

Adele, One Direction and Take That will go head-to-head with their new albums.

The 'Skyfall' singer is reportedly planning to release her long-awaited third album - which is expected to be called '25' - in the UK on November 24, the same date the 'Little Things' hitmakers' record company and the 'Greatest Day' band's frontman Gary Barlow have been eyeing for their new records in order to cash in on the busy Christmas markets.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Adele is finally ready to unleash 25 and as the world's top-selling star, you'd imagine nobody would dare compete with her.

''But One Direction are up for the fight. Bosses at their label, Sony, have also pencilled in November 24 as the day for the global launch of their fourth album.

''Gary Barlow also wants Take That's new album to come out with plenty of shopping days before Christmas, so there could be a clash.''

And the trio could face even more competition to take the number one slot on the album charts, as U2, Coldplay and Kanye West are all expected to release new records in the latter part of 2014.

Adele - whose last album, '21' was released in 2011 - previously hinted the LP would be called '25' after she turned 26 years old in May.

She made a post on her Twitter account which read: ''Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year x (sic)''

The title '25' follows on from the age-related names of her last two records, '19' and '21'.

Adele is outstanding, no matter what she does. Robbie Williams will always be #1 and Take That is also outstanding. I don't think that there will be a problem with Adele and Take That hitting the charts.
