The singer admitted that she hasn't started work on her third studio LP and plans to "set up home" for a few years before she decides to release any new material.
Adele told Billboard: "I'm really looking forward to some time to do nothing. 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.
"I'm just gonna lay some concrete, set up home and just 'be' for a bit. 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."
When asked if any work had started on the follow-up to 21, she simply responded: "Nope!"
Adele's second studio album has sold over 12 million copies across the globe since its release back in January this year.
