Last night Adam Lambert wrapped up his world tour with legendary rock band Queen and has returned home to finish working on his third solo album. He shared his excitement with fans this morning, tweeting, “I'm thrilled to get back home and complete my upcoming third solo album. #3rdtimesaCharm ;)”
The news is bittersweet for many fans. Some wish the tour would continue, especially those throughout Europe and other areas where Queen did not perform. Others are thrilled he will be devoting more time to his album, ready for some new solo music. It has been more than two years since his sophomore album “Trespassing” was released and everyone is eager to hear more of his music.
Very little is publicly known about the direction of the third album. Adam has been coy when asked the genre, saying recently, “I don't believe in genre. It's passé.” While his first two albums were pop music, it seems logical that touring with Queen may influence the new music to have some rock edge. However, Adam has always been full of surprises, so it is really impossible to guess what he has up his sleeve. What is known is that he worked on it for a few months in Sweden with producer Max Martin, who produced pop hits for Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, among others. The pair has collaborated in the past, with Martin co-writing and producing Adam’s Grammy nominated hit “Whataya Want From Me.”
Although it will probably be a while until the album is complete, fans can get their “Adam fix” by reliving the Queen concert through video. A long list of videos from the tour has been complied to make them easy to find.
How excited are you for Adam to complete his new music? Are you team “complete album” or team “more Queen concerts?”
