It's been four years since Adele came out with her last album, and fans are starting to grow impatient while waiting for new music. So when the singer posted a cryptic photo of herself singing on her Instagram feed, her followers spiraled, flooding the comments section with inquiries about her next album's release date.

"Teaser? Album coming out today???!!!! Tell me now???!!!!" one user commented, and, in a rare move, Adele responded with an update: "Of course it's not. Corona ain't over. I'm quarantining. Wear a mask and be patient."

While a new album isn't at the top of the songstress's list of priorities amid the global coronavirus pandemic, she appears as if she's ready to perform for an audience again, after recreating her 2016 Glastonbury Festival set at home.

On Saturday, Adele shared two pictures of herself in front of a TV playing her Pyramid Stage performance. In the second snap, she dances while wearing the exact outfit she wore at the original concert. "5 ciders in," she captioned the post — likely referring to the first photo, in which she held up a fan pretending its microphone.

The "Someone Like You" singer isn't the only artist holding music because of the current health crisis. Lady Gaga is delaying the drop of her forthcoming album Chromatica, while Alicia Keys, Alanis Morisette, and The Chicks (formerly The Dixie Chicks) have all postponed their album release dates.
