LONDON, July 16 (UPI) -- Adele has a new album in the works.

The World Music Awards announced Tuesday on Twitter that the 26-year-old singer has confirmed her third studio album. The record is called 25, in keeping with 19 (2008) and 21 (2011); the titles refer to her age at the time of production. The release will be followed by a tour in 2015.

"#adele confirms 2015 Tour After The Release Of Her New Album '25'!" the post reads.

Adele's last record, 21, sold over 10.9 million copies in the U.S. alone. The album included the hit songs "Rolling in the Deep" and "Set Fire to the Rain," and became the longest-running No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart since Prince's Purple Rain in 1984.
