Unreleased Adele Tracks Leaked - Listen Here

 by Grant Andrews 

Two unreleased songs by superstar recording artist Adele have leaked online. The tracks are believed to be leftovers from her recording sessions with producer Fraser T Smith for her 2011 album 21.

21 has sold over 30 million copies worldwide and won 7 Grammy Awards.

The two leaked songs are both vintage-sounding ballads with understated production which fit easily with the sound of 21.

"You'll Never See Me Again" is an uptempo breakup song with an infectious, strong drum beat and lush strings reminiscent of her popular single "Rolling in the Deep". It is an immediately catchy and strong composition which could easily have served as the lead single for a new album.

"Never Gonna Leave You" is a laid-back nostalgic love song. This one would have been misplaced with the overriding theme of heartache on 21, which could explain why it was omitted from the final tracklist.

In May, Adele seemed to hint at a new album with a tweet after her 26th birthday reading: "Bye bye 25... See you again later in the year". This prompted speculation that she would be releasing a new album with the title 25 before the end of 2014, but no official announcement has been made yet.

What do you think of the unreleased tracks? Are you looking forward to a new album by Adele? Sound off in the comments below.
