Adam Lambert reveals 90s influence on 'Trespassing', says "it's what I grew up with"

Adam Lambert has admitted that his new album is reflective of the music he grew up listening to and channels the 90s.

The vocal sensation explained to the Daily Star that growing up in the 90s had a huge influence on the styles of music that appeal to him, and he wanted to incorporate his personal tastes and own experiences into 'Trespassing':

"It can’t hurt me that the Nineties are becoming trendy again. I went there because that’s what inherently locked into my musical subconscious, as it’s what I grew up with."

"This album borrows so much from my first pop influences. I was listening to George Michael, Michael Jackson, Queen – I know Queen aren’t Nineties, but that’s when I got into them – and house music."

Speaking about the second single to be taken from the record, 'Never Close Our Eyes', which was written by Bruno Mars, Lambert added:

"There’s a lot of house’s darker atmospheres in the album too. 'Never Close Our Eyes' is a great dance song. It’s a little bit more dance than Bruno usually goes, so it’ll be a fun surprise for people.”




The 'Better Than I Know Myself' hitmaker also recently confirmed that he will play 2 gigs with the iconic rock band Queen in London this coming July, and tickets for the shows are set to go on sale at 9am on April 18.

'Trespassing' will be released in the UK on July 2 and you can listen to 'Never Close Our Eyes' below:
