Adam Lambert signs to Warner Bros. Records and confirms that Max Martin will produce new album

Vocal powerhouse Adam Lambert has been working on his next album for a little while now and he has finally treated his followers to an exciting update on the highly anticipated project. 

Speaking exclusively to Billboard, the 'Trespassing' sensation explained how Warner Bros. Records signed him as soon as the label's executives heard that he had parted ways with RCA Records:

"The next day, Warner Bros. contacted us, which I thought was pretty amazing and it was a kind of relief. It was just a scary thing to make that announcement to the world. So I scheduled a meeting with Max Martin and Shellback. We started talking about life, politics, fashion, everything under the sun. They said, 'You seem different, Adam,' and I said, 'I feel a little different.' And I just asked them for their help."

Max Martin spoke about the exciting new creative partnership and told the magazine: "Shellback and I first realized in 2009 that a voice and talent like Adam Lambert's doesn't come around very often. We loved the experience and hoped our paths would cross again. So, when Adam came to us with a new opportunity to work together, we leapt at it and even suggested a deeper relationship where we would get the chance to really help define Adam's music over a whole album. We teamed up with the perfect partner in Warner Brothers and can't wait for everyone to hear the dynamic album. We are really proud of it and hope you like it as much as we do!"

Lambert went onto confirm that his first single from the record is due to be released in April: "I can say the first single will be out in April. I think people are going to be really surprised. The album feels like a new era for me -- emotionally, lyrically, sonically. It feels fresh, it feels new. It's still me. It's still stuff that fans know and love but it's a new chapter 100 percent."
