Adele fans may have to wait longer than expected for new music from the British soul singer. The 23 year old has revealed that her third album won’t arrive for another two to three years.

In fact, the star has not even begun writing for her next LP. She tells Billboard, “I imagine I’ll be 25 or 26 by the time my next record comes out, as I haven’t even thought about my third record yet.”

For now, Adele is “looking forward to some time to do nothing.” After all, she’s had a whirlwind year with the success of ’21,’ and is happy to have some time to relax. “I’m just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just ‘be’ for a bit,” she adds. “I’ll disappear and come back with a record when it’s good enough. There will be no new music until it’s good enough and until I’m ready.”

The songbird’s latest release has earned her a whopping six Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Short Form Music Video, Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album and Album of the Year. Adele has also been named iTunes’ Artist of the Year, and is currently featured on the cover of Billboard’s year-end issue.
