Adele fans will have to wait a little bit longer for new music.
Many viewers tuned into Saturday Night Live on Oct. 24 hoping that the 32-year-old British singer would debut a new song or tease information about her forthcoming album during her first-ever hosting gig on the NBC sketch comedy show. Adele certainly brought tons of laughs with hilarious skits about her weight loss, The Bachelor and more, but she also offered an update.
“I know there’s been a lot of chatter about me just being the host, I’ve seen all of it — like why isn’t she the musical guest and all that,” the singer said during her monologue, noting that SNL was responsible for helping her career break in America over a decade ago.
“There’s a couple of reasons: My album’s not finished and I’m too scared to do both. I’d rather just put on some wigs — and this is all mine, by the way — have a glass of wine, or six, and just see what happens.”
Adele last commented on her upcoming album’s timeline in August when a fan asked about its status on Instagram. “I honestly have no idea,” the Grammy-winner replied at the time.
Adele’s last studio album, 25, arrived in 2015. The set made music sales history, earning a milestone debut on the Billboard 200 chart, and instantly became the year’s top selling album in the U.S. in just one week.
