Despite going through a very difficult divorce (she announced her separation from Simon Konecki earlier this year) Adele is reportedly “perky as hell”…

“She surrounds herself with loyal girlfriends who are as private as she is,” an insider said, according to People.  

“She’s perky as hell!”

We think her perkiness might have something to do with the fact that she is working on a brand new album. And we all know how successful her albums that are fuelled by heartache are…

“She is definitely getting ready both mentally and physically to promote new music. It seems it will happen later this year,” a source close to the singer revealed to People magazine.

“She talks about last year as a very difficult year, and she’s said in the past that creating new music is almost like therapy. You can tell that she is ready to share with her fans.”

The sourced added that  the 31-year-old Grammy and Oscar-winner is pouring all of her energy into her new record, adding that it will be just as personal and emotional as ever…

“She is so busy, but her life is better-rounded than it was before,” the source added.

“She is very fulfilled being an artist. New music is still a big deal for her, and she feels alive and happy.”

As well as working on new music, Adele has reportedly spent the summer travelling with her 6-year-old son, Angelo…

“Her son had some time off from school, so they have taken a few small trips,” another source said.

“They recently vacationed in Utah, took a boating tour on Lake Powell and hiked the slot canyons. Adele very much enjoys U.S. nature and wanted to show Angelo around historic sites.”

But despite the travelling, Adele and Angelo have a solid base in Los Angeles. And she and ex Simon Konecki are reportedly handling the co-parenting thing like pros…

“Adele loves Los Angeles and lives a great life with her son,” the insider added.

“She likes to keep her life private for both her and her son and is able to do that in L.A. She co-parents with Simon, and they seem to get along and spend time together with Angelo as well.”

That’s what we like to hear!

We cannot wait to hear the music that Adele has been working on!

We’ll let you know the deets about her new album as soon as we get them.
