XL Recordings registered a £41 million pound profit last year, and that’s being put down to one very, very successful artist: Adele. But if you’re a massive fan of the singer, we’re sorry for your break up, and we have other bad news: the follow up to 21 may well be a while. An XL spokesperson was talking to the New York Times about 2011 sales, and he explained “The next Adele album may not come for some years, and it’s impossible to predict its likely sales. We therefore regard this year’s figures as exceptional.” So nothing is pencilled in, and Adele is currently busy with family. We'll just have to make Someone Like You last.
