Imagine having your wedding band be none other than Adele. The singer took the stage to celebrate her friend Laura Dockrill’s nuptials at the Mason’s Arms pub in London over the weekend and used the opportunity to possibly annouce a new album this fall.
Adele officiated the wedding of Dockrill and former Maccabees band member Hugo White, and performed “Rolling in the Deep” following the ceremony, as well as covers of Spice Girls’ “Spice Up Your Life,” Candi Staton’s “Young Hearts Run Free” and Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love.” A recording of her saying “expect my album in September” has also surfaced online, reportedly following her performance. (A rep for the the singer declined to comment on the album’s release date.)

The possibility of a September album matches up with a quote Adele’s team said a few weeks ago the Eurosonic Noorderslag conference and festival in the Netherlands. Lucy and Jonathan Dickins confirmed that new music from the singer should be expected in 2020, according to Music Week. “The sooner the better,” Jonathan noted during the appearance.
Adele’s last album, 25, dropped in 2015. She won Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album at the 2016 Grammy Awards, as well as Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her single “Hello.”
