Things have been very quiet on the New Adele Album front for the past year. Most recently Kelly Clarkson said she heard through the grapevine that the British singer’s third album would have some country influence. And now we learn it’ll have some Pharrell influence. As in, the super-producer and Voice judge indicated he’s working with Adele on the follow-up to her 2011 smash 21.

Speaking at the Cannes Lions festival, Skateboard P explained that Adele has been chipping away at the new album, allegedly called 25, in short bursts of activity in between time spent with her two-year-old son, according to The Mirror.

“I’ve seen her recently. She’s kinda like, ‘OK guys, I’m gonna open my diary for 20 minutes,'” he said. “So it’s like, OK, you have 20 minutes, or 32 minutes really. Then she gives it to you and closes it up and disappears, and she’s off with her beautiful boy – and that’s what it’s all about.”

The pop mastermind also praised Adele when speaking to Ryan Seacrest, saying, “She is a masterful writer. You listen to her albums and the intention is living and breathes.”

Living and breathing, and still in hiding for now.
