Adele to Collaborate with Prince

Adele is collaborating with Prince on a new track.

The "Skyfall" hitmaker has been discussing the possibility of recording a duet with the legendary singer for her upcoming third album. "The reason Adele only stayed a short time at Prince's gig at Ronnie Scott's in London was because it was just a business meeting and she had to get home. During their talks they got on like a house on fire. They want to work together for a track on her next album," a source said.

The 25-year-old star has started work on her new album after taking a well-deserved break from the limelight to raise her son Angelo, who is now 16 months old. Adele has already enlisted the help of Phil Collins and producer James Ford to work on her record, the follow-up to 2011's bestselling 21 which is due for release later this year.

Prince previously confessed to being a massive fan of Adele's stripped-back ballads, saying, "When she just comes on and sings with a piano player, no gimmicks, it's great."

The "Purple Rain" singer is currently in the UK performing with rock quartet 3RDEYEGIRL, so should have plenty of time to hit the studio with Adele.
