Tells Billboard she's in very early stages of preparation for third LP

Speaking with reporters backstage at the Grammys on Sunday, Adele offered up a brief update on progress for her untitled third studio album.

"I'm not very far along at all," she admitted. "I'm having lots of meetings. I've been in L.A. for the whole time since the (Golden) Globes, and I will be until the Oscars. I've been having lots of meetings. I've been out of the loop really. I've been singing my baby nursery rhymes, so I don't really know what's cool and what's not.

I'm definitely going to visit Paul Epworth and stuff like that again."

Epworth produced and co-wrote a number of tracks on Adele's "21," including "Rolling in the Deep," which topped the Hot 100 for a staggering seven weeks. Adele gave birth to her first child, a baby boy, on October 19, 2012.

Though it's been two years since the release of "21," the singer is still riding high from its success. Adele walked away with the Grammy for Best Solo Pop Performance for the song "Set Fire to the Rain" and presented the evening's final award, Album of the Year.

"Skyfall," Adele's song from the recent "James Bond" film of the same name, was nominated for Best Original Song at Feb. 24's Academy Awards, where she'll also be performing it. it recently won the same category at Jan. 13's Golden Globes.
