What we know so far about Adam Lambert's new solo studio album

Today (November 24) is the 9th anniversary of the release of Adam Lambert's For Your Entertainment, so let's take a look at what we know about his upcoming fourth studio album so far.

Along with all of his solo projects, the dulcet-toned superstar has also been collaborating with the legendary rock band Queen, and recently just finished a successful world tour with them as the lead vocalist, so fans are expecting a new album out in the near future.

His previous album The Original High was released in 2015, and in 2016 he announced that he had commenced the creative process for its follow-up, saying: 

"The plan is still being concocted and is unfolding, so we don't really know. It's all kind of still spinning around.

"It's only now that I'm starting to go, 'Where do I want to go next, sound-wise?' But I haven't gotten close enough to the process yet. I think I'll start working on stuff in the Fall."

In October 2016, Lambert announced: "Had a great time creating some new songs this week in London. Chapter 4 on the distant horizon..."

In December 2016 he revealed: "There will be some surprises and some freshness to bring.”

2017 was kicked off with this awesome message: "I have just begun on some new music in the past couple weeks." 

In June of that year, he released Two Fux and premiered the track on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

This year (2018) Lambert quenched his fans' appetite by announcing he plans to tour his new music soon, and that "the fans have been waiting long enough, and so have I!

"I’ve really been trying to explore what I want the sound and subject matter to be."

In May 2018, the vocal powerhouse signed a new management deal with Phil McIntyre's company, Philymack and revealed:

"Obviously Queen really inspired me. I don’t think this album is genre-specific. I think there are a lot of different influences on it. There’s rock, there’s FUNK, there’s soul, there’s disco, Seventies singer-songwriter pop and some Eighties flavours, too. That being said, there are a lot of modern influences as well, so it’s sort of a fusion."

This month (November), he told Schon Magazine: "I’m still working on it, but I’m definitely getting there.

“There are some incredible songs that I’m really proud of and I can’t wait to share them with the world.”

With the end of the year upon us, we think it's safe to say that fans can now get excited about a 2019 solo album release from Pressparty's 2012 King and Queen of the Year.
