Adele has revealed intentions to hit the road for a new tour, after the release of her third album.

The soul star is currently working on her third album, in between picking up awards and nominations for everything she does. The star picked up a Golden Globe for her 'Skyfall' track recently, and is up for an Oscar at next month's ceremony.

Now, she has confirmed intentions to tour - in America at least.

Speaking on US TV show Entertainment Tonight, the singer said: "Absolutely, absolutely. I was meant to be doing it but then my throat issue happened, so I couldn't do it and then I got knocked up so then I couldn't do it.

"I'm not sure when but when a new record comes - when I write a new record - then absolutely, yeah I can't wait."

Adele has promised fans she will tour after the release of her third album

The singer will need to conquer her stage fright however, as she is notoriously nervous about live performances. She is said to be 'petrified' ahead of her rumoured live return at the Oscar's ceremony, where she is expected to perform as part of a James Bond tribute.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday, "Adele is petrified of her comeback performance. She's been a recluse over the last year being a mum and she knows the whole world will be watching. She's been working flat-out to perfect her performance and rebuild her confidence."
