The 'Set Fire To The Rain' songstress admitted that she has already written seven tracks for the record and wants the new material to be more stripped-back.
"I've accumulated some things to write about again. I'd go in the studio tomorrow if I could," the 23-year-old singer confessed to Q magazine.
"It won't be a big production. I want it to be quite acoustic and piano-led."
However, the Brit school alumni insisted that she wants to create her new record entirely by herself, meaning the process of making the album will ultimately take longer.
"I want to write it all, record it all, produce it all and master it on my own. I think it'll take a lot longer because I want to do it this way. When I move house in the summer, my sound engineer is going to come and help me install a studio and teach me how to use it."
Although she may reject offers to work with 21 producers Rick Rubin and Paul Epworth on her new material, Adele asserted that she doesn't feel pressured into delivering another multi-million-selling album.
"I don't really care about [other people's] expectations. There was enough of it with this record. If you deliver the songs, I think you get away with it. I'm not bothered."
She added: "I'm not expecting my next record to be as big as this record. That's impossible."
The star also joked: "I f**king hope I meet someone in that time so I'll have something to write about. But if I'm happy, I don't think I'll be writing another album at all!"
Jay-Z apparently met up with Adele last week to discuss recording a "massive" record together.
