After hearing the short snippet Adam Lambert shared last week, I fully expected “Ghost Town” to be one full out EDM concoction. While there are certainly some killer beats, the track surprisingly features moody acoustic verses before kicking things into high gear during the chorus. Like Hilary Duff’s “Sparks,” the Max Martin and Shellback-produced single includes some hypnotic whistles.
“It was executive produced by Max Martin and Shellback and they helped me keep a very cohesive sound and mood throughout. Sonically it feels more contemporary than my previous material. It’s definitely pop but not bubblegum. We have avoided camp and theatrics and have favoured a darker, more grounded vibe, and at the same time, it will make you dance” – Adam Lambert via Hunger magazine
In addition to debuting the lyric video for the lead cut off his third studio album, the 33-year-old entertainer revealed the official tracklist for The Original High. The most notable detail that pops up is a track titled “Rumors” which features Tove Lo. I can’t wait to hear this collaboration.
Check out the “Ghost Town” lyric clip below along with the tracklist. I’m already obsessed with the cut. It’s a haunting pop dance masterpiece.
Not to be confused with “Ghosttown” by Madonna, “Ghost Town” is the much-heralded comeback single for Adam Lambert. Side note: How random is it that two similarly-titled songs are released roughly at the same time? While I like Madge’s latest, I predict Lambert’s offering will become my new go-to jam at the gym.
“Ghost Town” doesn’t officially drop until April 21, but the 33-year-old singer shared a short teaser via Instagram. The preview features a solid bumpin’ beat with Lambert’s signature powerhouse vocals belting out the title. Check out the audio below. And PS, how fierce does he look on the official cover art? Fantastic!!!
Without all the excessive makeup, the American Idol alum’s natural beauty shines. His less-is-more approach is definitely working. Almost universally, Glamberts agree that Adam Lambert is looking especially fine these days.
“Someone said to me ‘oh you’re not wearing all that crazy shit, are you trying to tone it down?’ and I was like ‘no, I just got tired. Fu*k! It was a lot of work!’”
In addition to chatting about his ‘new’ look, Lambert talks about his forthcoming third studio album, titled The Original High with Notion magazine. Appropriately enough, he graces the cover of their 69th issue, wink. Check out more pics and quotes below from his feature in the publication.
The promotion train is full speed ahead for Adam Lambert’s forthcoming third studio album, The Original High. He’s definitely working the grind to ensure the word is out. Hot off the heels of his broody spread for Hunger comes another editorial in a high-profile magazine.
The 33-year-old poses for an 11-page spread in the new issue of Attitude magazine. Glambert is looking pretty fine these days. He also opens up about life as a ‘post-gay’ pop star, his fellow gay compatriots and his new LP. Check out a few quotes below, along with another photo from the issue.
“Sam Smith, hats off, he has had an amazing year, he’s a lovely guy. I’ve met him a few times. I’m so happy for him, and I’m so happy his sexuality wasn’t a big thorn in his side. It was just: ‘This is who I am, I’m cool with it and so you should be too.’ And his songs are timeless and beautiful, and everybody relates to them. He’s doing it right, for sure.”
Adam Lambert is about to embark on a new era with his third studio album, The Original High. It’s his first offering since leaving RCA Records over creative differences and signing with his new label. I can’t wait for the lead cut, “Ghost Town,” to drop on April 21. The slinky Max Martin-produced track will undoubtedly be huge club hit.
The 33-year-old singer talks about his new album, singing with Queen, advancing gay rights in the music industry with Hunger. Lambert also poses for a stunning broody fashion editorial snapped by Rankin for the publication. Check out more photos and quotes below.
“The first single feels like the perfect introduction to The Original High. It establishes itself in a very earthy, vulnerable way and transforms into a hypnotic dream full of surreal imagery and set to a minimal yet massive deep house beat. The hook will worm its way into your ears after the first listen. Get ready!”
When Glee returns this Thursday, Adam Lambert makes his debut. Based on the stills and audio of his “Marry The Night” performance, it should be a memorable and thrilling extravaganza. I wouldn’t expect anything less.
In a behind-the-scenes clip, Lambert introduces his character Elliott Gilbert who goes by the stage name Starchild. He also talks about initially auditioning for Glee years ago, but producers told him he was too old. Apparently, Glambert found the fountain of youth and now is Glee-ready. Speaking of looks, his skin looks fantastic in the vid. Remember when he was on American Idol? It wasn’t nearly as flawless back then.
Check out the clip below where Chris Colfer and Demi Lovato sing his praises.
Lady Gaga’s little monsters are probably going to crucify me for saying this, but Adam Lambert just showed her up. His cover of “Marry The Night” absolutely slays. He should really book some recording studio time with Fernando Garibay who co-wrote the track. The two of them can create magic together.
Other songs being performed when Glee returns November 7 include Gaga’s “Applause” and Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” and “Roar.” Lambert teams up with fellow guest star Demi Lovato on the latter. I can’t wait to hear their rendition. In the meantime give Adam’s “Marry The Night” a listen below.
Adam Lambert doesn’t make his Glee debut for another week, but he’s already hanging out with one of its stars, Amber Riley aka Mercedes Jones. The 31-year-old singer kicks off Todrick Hall’s latest masterpiece, Spell Block Tango.
The YouTube sensation teamed up with Marlon Wayans’ new company “What The Funny” to produce a viral Halloween video. Not surprisingly, Disney characters are incorporated in the clip. Hall definitely has a hard-on for all things Mickey, doesn’t he? This time he allows a few of Disney’s most infamous villains to tell their side of their respective fairytale while set to the music of Chicago. It’s actually quite funny.
Along with Lambert and Riley, the clip features appearances by Blake McGrath, Pia Toscano, Cassie Scerbo, several hot shirtless models and Todrick himself. Check out Spell Block Tango below.
