Adele has apparently returned to the recording studio for the first time since becoming a mum.
The Rolling In The Deep singer - who welcomed her son in October - is working on the follow-up to her award-winning album, 21, reported The Sun.
The 24-year-old has recruited producers and songwriters James Ford and Kid Harpoon to work on the record with her.
A source said: "Adele wants to move with the times and is trying to make her new record sound as edgy as possible.
"The team she's assembled is first rate and she's confident they can help match the success of her first two albums."
The insider went on: "It's no easy task as the world will be desperate to hear it."
Adele, who recently scooped an Oscar for her James Bond song Skyfall, released her first album, 19, in 2008 and followed it up with 21 three years later.
