A cryptic snap posted on his IG account caused the rumor to stir.
Adele gave her 37.6 million followers a lot to talk about on Saturday when she simply posted a photo of herself singing on stage.
The photo of the Grammy winner with her arms outstretched holding a microphone was captioned only with a smiling face emoji, leading many to believe she was provoking her long-awaited album.
A fan quickly commented, “Teaser? Will the albums be out today ??? !!!! Tell me now !!”
And Adele responded with wise advice, writing: “Of course not. Corona is not done. I am quarantined. Wear a mask and be patient.”
Adele last joked about the new album’s release date in February, when the videos captured at her best friend’s wedding revealed that she told viewers to “wait for my album in September.”
However, its manager, Jonathan Dickins, confirmed this week that it will be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It will come when it’s ready. I still can’t put a date on it. We have music, but we’re still working.”
Adele’s last album, 25, was released in 2015 and won five Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.
