Will Adele’s ’21’ Get a Special Edition Release?
Adele may be celebrating ’21’ all over again. A special edition of the British soul singer’s record-breaking album could be hitting shelves at the end of the year.
According to the Daily Star, Adele’s label has its sights set on re-releasing the Grammy-winning LP with extra tracks on it to entice fans. With 4.3 million copies sold, ’21’ is currently No.5 on the UK’s list of best-selling albums of all time. If the special edition takes off, it could help propel the album beyond Queen’s ‘Greatest Hits,’ which has sold six million copies to date.
“A repackaged album is currently being discussed,” a source tells the paper. “It’s not yet confirmed that it will feature new material or songs that didn’t make the original album but it makes sense to bring it out.”
Although her sophomore album has been out since early 2011, Adele is still a wanted woman. Nicki Minaj has expressed the desire to collaborate with the 24-year-old star, and the ‘Rumour Has It’ singer will be performing at the wedding of actress Carey Mulligan and Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford.
Oh, but that’s not all. Adele will also reportedly be releasing a new single before the end of the year, which will reportedly be the new theme song to the upcoming James Bond film, ‘Skyfall.’ It looks like 2012 will be another stellar year for Adele!
