We all knew it wouldn't be long until Adele hit the studio once again to record the follow-up to her blockbuster "21," which has moved more than 25 million copies worldwide.

After enjoying chart-topping success with such smashes as "Rolling In The Deep" and "Someone Like You," both off the 2011 release, the songbird has been putting together the next batch of songs, hitting sessions with Diane Warren. On her own merits, Warren is one of the most sought-after songwriters of all time, having worked on songs for Whitney Houston ("It Isn't, It Wasn't, It Ain't Never Gonna Be"), Celine Dion ("Nothing Broken But My Heart," "If You Asked Me To"), Jennifer Hudson ("Still Here" from "I Remember Me"), Aerosmith, Mariah Carey ("Can't Take That Away") and Beyonce ("I Was Here" from "4"),among so many others.

“It was just great. I don’t really write with people and we spent a lot of time together and really clicked and really connected and I really like her as a person,” Warren shares with Hitfix, in an exclusive interview. “I’m really excited about the stuff we did.”

Adele has also been collaborating with the esteemed Phil Collins, who recently spoke to Inside South Florida about the work. "I've just started to work with Adele," he told the publication. "I wasn't actually too aware…I live in a cave, but she's achieved an incredible amount. I really love her voice. I love some of this stuff she's done, too." [Quote via Rolling Stone]

No word on exactly if the sessions will yield songs for the upcoming album.

Rumors are also swirling that singer will drop the new album sometime this year, as well as a tour in support of the project. Gig Wise points out a new song, titled "Devil On My Shoulder," was recently registered with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). The songwriting credits include Greg Wells, who previously worked on Adele's "21" and with projects for Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams and Mika.
