The rumor was sparked when the British singer tweeted this post full of promise on her 26th birthday in May: “Bye bye 25 … See you again later in the year.”
This seemed to confirm Adele’s habit of naming her albums according to the age at which it was recorded, like “19” in 2008 and “21” in 2011.
Speculation was also fueled by a tweet posted on the World Music Awards’ official Twitter account.
“#adele confirms 2015 Tour After The Release Of Her New Album 25!” the message read. However, it has since been deleted.
However, the rumors were squashed by Martin Mills, chairman of Beggars Group, the parent company to Adele’s XL Recordings, after he told tells Billboard that there is “no truth in this.”
