Adele's new album will be inspired by her pregnancy.
While the 24-year-old singer is known for her songs about lost love and heartbreak, friends say her newfound happiness with Simon Konecki and the impending arrival of their first child have both had a big impact on her work.
A source told Us magazine: "It will be lighter than her last ode to break-up. The pregnancy has had a big impact on her songwriting."
Meanwhile, the couple are preparing for the baby and Adele is enjoying her time out of the spotlight.
The insider added: "She is lying low and focusing on becoming a mom. The baby is healthy and she's so excited."
Writing on her website in June, Adele confirmed her pregnancy, saying she wanted fans to hear the news directly from her.
She said: "I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together.
"I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we're over the moon. Yours always, Adele."
