The track list was posted and pulled very quickly, someone messed up. The name Adele was on there.
Well, Disney have a tradition of getting a pop star to sing the main song from a movie (Celine and Beauty and The Beast, Demi Lovato and Let It Go etc) so I wouldn’t be surprised if Disney asked Adele to get involved. But on the other hand such a high profile project as Mary Poppins may not need it, and the pop star versions are never as good as the movie versions (Angela Lansbury and Beaty and The Beast, Idina Menzel and Let It Go etc).
So either way, it very well might just be a non-event. Unless Adele’s version of a song is released before the movie comes out at Christmas in an attempt for a global Christmas #1. I’d welcome another #1 in her discography and she certainly deserves a Christmas #1 - I know they don’t mean much anymore after the whole X Factor debacle, but I still like to know who manages it
