Adele isn't "going on a break for that long," she tells the French radio network NRJ. Contrary to previous reports about an extended hiatus, the singer said she expects to have a "new song probably coming out at the end of the year."

Don't expect a full album soon from the wildly successful singer, however. "I have to write another record, you know," she said. "If I didn't write my own songs, I'd be out next week with a new album. But because I write my own songs, I have to take time and live a little bit. There was a good two years between my first and second albums, so it'll be the same this time."
