The new album from Adele is expected to come out next year and reports claim that Apple is refusing to sell physical CDs of the record.
In a report by 9 to 5 Mac , Apple doesn’t want to sell the new record from the soul singer, said to be called “25,” on any of their retail stores.
According to the report, with an advanced technological thinking that the company has, there would be zero chance that Apple would say yes to Adele’s request of selling her discs in the stores, even if they know how people would want to grab a physical copy of the release.
“Her team needs to be more realistic about an artist who doesn’t have much of a history of working with corporate partners,” a source reportedly told Daily Mail, speaking about Adele’s representative William Morris Endeavor.
Meanwhile, an Independent report claimed how Adele is looking forward to her set of tour shows next year to promote the new album. According to the report, the “Hello” singer is finalizing her shows, as the singer would be going on a come back after missing out in the scene for a few years.
“I’d like to tour properly,” she said. “Sometimes I think people worry about chatting to me, that I’ve changed. But I like to think I haven’t. I don’t feel like I have.”
As for the release date of the new Adele album, nothing has been set in stone as of the moment as the singer and her camp are still finalizing the details.
In a report by Daily Mail a few months back, Adele didn’t even plan on promoting her new album via a tour because of her child.
“There are no concrete plans for a tour,” a source reportedly said. “In fact, people at the label admit they are clueless about whether Adele will tour at all. It’s understood she is not keen to travel with Angelo as she adores quiet family life.”
