Adam Lambert – Outlaws of Love – New Song

Adam Lambert is performing a concert tonight at the St. Agathe en Feux Festival at Sainte-Agathe-des-monts, Quebec, Canada where he debuted a new song called “Outlaws of Love”. Listen to the audio below.

So pretty! I’ll have video up later when it becomes available.

    The people behind the livestreamer at the outdoor festival wouldn’t shut up!! Hopefully the video sound quality will be better!!

    Kind of sounds like a cross between The Prayer and Broken Open, with a little of his Zodiac Show wailing every once in awhile. Very distinctively his voice!

  • smeggingnuts

    omg this song love love love

  • girlygirl

    Really gorgeous song.

    Sounds like the concert was crazy, complete with pouring rain for the last 1/2 hour or so.

    Suz, who usually has the best turn around time for videos said it will be like 1am when she starts getting them up

  • sparkle

    thanks for posting this. It’s great to hear a song that really showcases his beautiful voice!!!

  • Chicagolaw

    Holy shit that song is gorgeous. I am just realizing now how excited I am for new Adam music. Love the Isaac tweet!

  • lovingadam

    Gorgeous!
    His voice sounds amazing.

  • Kylee

    So will this be on his next album?

  • mgk

    OMG! So beautiful!

  • artemis

    Really beautiful. Thanks for posting this so quickly, MJ.

  • milwlovesadam

    I wonder if this is how it will be on the album, or if Ads is just switching it up like he loves to do? Maybe this will be a rocker. Wouldn’t surprise me at all. Especially after hearing how Gaga did her songs acoustic live and got such great attention ( Hair and Edge).

    Sounds like a great concert, ending with rain and fireworks. Ha, he Set Fire to the Rain.

  • sagi

    Pretty! Hope to hear a better quality video without all the other noise! I saw a couple of video clips of a few of his numbers from the back of the crowd, (sorry don’t have permission to link to them) and the crowd was HUGE!

    THIS THIS THIS!!!! So gorgeous! Lyrics are haunting and sad and his voice brings the pain of the lyrics out. Can’t wait for better audio and to hear the studio version.

    This has me so excited for his album!

  • weareallinnocent

    Beautiful.

  • penzap

    OMG!!! So beautiful. Love it love it sounds like it was a great concert. His voice is just unreal.

  • imeanrun

    His voice is unbelievable! Flail so hard!!! Need that 2nd album NOW!

  • Dakota01

    So beautiful … I can’t stop listening. Adam’s voice is incredible.

  • lorismile

    And every where we go we’re looking for the sun. Nowhere to grow old, we’re always on the run. They say we’ll rot in hell but I don’t think we will. They branded us enough. Outlaws of Love

    Gorgeous.

  • lorismile

    Someone said the download has 1M already? Is that true? how do you know that?

  • Oksana2000

    sagi, depending who was tweeting, the crowd was estimated to be between 6,000 and 9,000. The mayor of St.Agathe said that at least 7,000 tickets were sold on pre-sale.

  • sparkle

    Hope Adam had a happy half-birthday doing what he loves – performing! Wish I could have been at the concert – it sounds like it was amazing! Hopefully we’ll get a recap.

  • penzap

    Someone said the download has 1M already? Is that true? how do you know that?

    Seriously LOL no way.

  • karenc

    Love the new song. He sounded terrific with it.

    They are band members? I think I remember hear the name TommyJoe a lot. Is Isaac Carpenter a band member or a member of the audience?

    ETA: Duh! I think I answered my own question. The operative word in Isaac’s tweet was “played”.

  • Oksana2000

    Is Isaac Carpenter a band member or a member of the audience

    Isaac is a drummer.

    Isaac plays the drums and TJ plays the bass

  • bridgette12

    Wow! It gives me chills listening to him. I can’t wait for the videos, sound like Adam was at the top of his game tonight. I certainly want to hear the new song, but also Purple Haze, one of my all time favorite songs.

  • Teri63

    That is just beautiful! Thank you, Lorismile, for those lyrics. I was having a difficult time hearing the words, just his haunting, gorgeous voice. Those lyrics are amazing. I have goosebumps!

    Estimated lyrics:

    Everywhere we go, we’re looking for the sun.
    Nowhere to grow old. We’re always on the run.
    They say we’ll rot in hell, but I don’t think we will.
    They’ve branded us enough. Outlaws of love.

    Scars(stars) makes us who we are.
    Hearts…… are broken, broken.
    Far, we could go so far
    With our minds wide open, open.
    Pain. Tears all fall the same
    We all feel the rain
    We can’t change.

    Everywhere we go, we’re looking for the sun.
    Nowhere to grow old. We’re always on the run.
    They say we’ll rot in hell, but I don’t think we will.
    They’ve branded us enough. Outlaws of love.

    Tear worthy. Seriously.

    God, these lyrics…i can’t stop listening. Seems like such a personal song.

  • lovingadam

    lori, thnx for the lyrics
    so meaningful …

  • Anmor

    I wonder if this is the song Adam wrote with B. C. Jean that she described as having a Romeo and Juliet theme. It is haunting.

  • lorismile

    HoppersSkippersMiner Thank you!
    Tear worthy. Seriously. Very.

  • cwm

    OMG that song is gorgeous. I feel like crying when I read those lyrics. And the melody and his voice? Unbelievably beautiful.

  • HoppersSkippersMiners

    [smiles] Can’t take credit for the lyrics, they came from ATOP (tried to edit my post to say that, but couldn’t).

    Like I said on the Headlines thread I really like Adam singing songs acoustically . I hope they don’t spoil this song with a bad backing on the album, stick to the acoustic sound- if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

    Haunting. I like it.

    That’s my thought and I can hear the music background to it in my head. Just beautiful.

  • girlygirl

    The melody is so gorgeous, almost fragile in a way. I hope they don’t lose that by overproducing it in the studio. Sometimes simple production is better :)

    girlygirl, I wish that sometimes THEY would listen to the fans. But it would be to simple.

    My God what a beautiful song. I hope it’s on the album, and if this song is typical of the album as a whole…wow. Love it. I just hope they don’t overproduce it and turn it into “heartland” soft rock.

  • Chicagolaw

    The song is so perfect stripped down and raw. PLEASE don’t turn it into “A Loaded Smile” on the album. (No offense to fans of ALS, but it’s the only song I routinely skip on FYE)

  • HoppersSkippersMiners

    Oh, the audio of the twitvid is **SO** much better than the original rip. Awesome.

    What a beautiful voice, he is amazing singer, Love Adam Lambert!!

    [grin] Is Adam doing any more one-off’s before album #2’s release date? I could get my arm twisted into listening to another new song…… #wantmoretoo

  • tuti

    Adam style and hes band is more like crazy wild badass rocker than acoustic soft songs.

    I hope for 2album we get some crazy guitar and drums with rock edge to it as Adam is edgy.any review yet?

    The funny thing is fans are more screamy emotional here every time Adam open he’s mouth to sing.it’s pretty song.

    Your scars, ie heartbreak, shape your being and make you who you are. You wouldn’t be the same person you are today without going through pain and heartbreak in your life. My take anyway. :)

    Suz, who usually has the best turn around time for videos said it will be like 1am when she starts getting them up

    Traffic is bad and Montreal is over an hour and 15 mins away without traffic and it’s raining. Dayum, he was on fire!! He outdid himself tonight. 8,800 tickets sold. He looked fantastic, handsome, happy, in great shape. He took off his jacket near the end and performed in his tanktop. Crowd was great all night. Canadians very very supportive. This is a ski town, kind of rural. very scenic, lovely.
    Some locals said they drove 3 hrs to get there. Mixed crowd, many more men than normal, families with children, very polite crowd, but extremely vocal and enthusiastic. Then the rain poured down near the end and the main crowd didn’t move. Adam put out his tongue to catch some rain and the crowd loved it. He gave us a stellar WLL for the encore, then left. The crowd stayed there in the rain and kept yelling, Adam Adam Adam and he came back and did a second encore Purple Haze and then he left again. The sound system was really really good.
    Loved it, just not being soaking wet like all of us are now. Just thank goodness we have Suz. You’ll see how good he was tonight. Just wow!! For vids from Suz unless MJ puts them here, go to adamlambertlive.org There’re mainly MJers over there just for concert threads.

    Oh wow cher thanks for the recap. I am so unbelievably jealous of you right now, it sounds like it was an amazing show!

    How was the brand new song in person? I’m still stunned that he basically sang it acapella with only minimal accompaniment from Monte, his voice seemed so beautiful on Suz’s vid.

  • houstonrufus23

    Really pretty. I like how understated it is, especially for Adam.

    Have you heard Adam Lambert’s BRAND-NEW song yet? I have. And you can hear it too if you click! http://t.co/A7AkyzL

    Parker’s fast lol

  • HoppersSkippersMiners

    Partial english translation (pulled from ATOP, guessing a google translate from the phrasing)

    ***************

    For its passage at the festival in Sainte-Agathe lights on Friday night, the international star was able to move not only the local population, but some of his fans in Australia and Europe had also followed in Laurentians.

    Some were even dressed in attire similar to that of their idol. This shows to what point the interpreter knows the wind lifting of affection wherever he goes.

    A year after the joy of the audience in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Hot Air Balloon Festival, Adam Lambert was to return to Quebec at the end of July, and was dangerously fit.

    Which do not unnecessarily languish his audience, the show has hit hard at the outset by starting the evening with his hit “For Your Entertainment.”

    Won, the crowd responded enthusiastically to this beautiful gift. Eager to keep a little magic for the rest of the show, the artist, however, waited a little later to get out his other radio tubes.

    History to maintain the wait, so he offered a brief guided tour of his one album on the market and proposed re-readings of hits.

    *****

    There’s more, but its enough to get the gist! :-)

  • Jae

    I like this! I have so much hope for this new album. It shoudl really reflect who Adam is as an artist. Sooo excited! And so happy that he previewed a new song!

  • revcat

    LMAO “wind lifting” and “dangerously fit” , sorry it sounds funny :) However, I suppose the former means soaring and dangerously fit speaks for itself :) so it’s all good!

  • Fullmoon

    Lyndsey is fast. She also have some good points for the album version of the song. I’m feeling somewhere between BO and CLYG without the heavy production.

    In person, beautiful. Some of the crowd screamed sometimes but the majority stayed quiet. So many riffs, highs and lows, showed so much range, so pretty, yet heartwrenching at the same time, sounded wonderful on the big speakers. Beautiful voice all night. The crowd ate him up. Just so happy I came. Still feel like a drowned rat though. :)

  • music woman

    OMG What a beautiful magical song. I can hardly wait for the new album. Adam’s soaring voice is like no other’s.

    I loved reading that when the rain started to come down hard, Adam continued singing and NO ONE left!

  • emmuzka

    What a lovely song! I don’t think that it will be a single, though. It is more commercial and radio friendly than, say, Soaked, but still.

    First of all, first singles are big deals and Adam has probably already “sold” the world premiere of the future first single to Ryan Seachrest or Simon Fuller or the like. Secondly, after Adam’s first single FYE about BDSM sunk like a rock, he will be vise enough not to introduce a song about gay issues as the fist single of #2. (Sad but true.)

    I believe that he chose this song because it was one of those he is already with 100% certainty to include in the album, and the most important thing: because it was a ballad, it was the easiest to make a quick live arrangement for it.

  • TXsunshine001

    Just watching Suzy vids and wow Adam was feeling sexy tonight. Seeing him so free with his banter & cloths , just makes me smile. Love the new song.

  • lovingadam
  • listen

    Like OoL, very beautiful. And as others said, hope they don’t overproduce it on the album…
    Really looking forward to his upcoming album and the first single off that album.

    Glad to read this concert was such a success !

  • renataamelo

    BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And I so remembered LP! Outlaw! That´s how he called his fans right?

  • theonlygirl

    This is so beautiful omg! I was so sure he wouldn’t do a new song I woke up shocked!

    It’s so beautiful, and even though super quiet and I’m sure it won’t be the first single, it’s still very catchy ( yes I’m already singing it lol ) and that is a good thing looking forward to the whole album.

    Anyways, the lyrics are so emotional and knowing that Adam wrote them slightly breaks my heart. But he’s in a happy place right now, so I’m happy for that. And knowing that Sauli was there watching him do a concert live for the first time, it is even more poignant.

    This song is so gorgeous. Now, taking myself off it to watch all the other videos. Bonus: he looks so hot, it blinds!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    A very impressive new song from Adam. Such a lovely melody and emotional lyrics. If this song is an example of what will be on his next CD, then we are all in for a very special treat. On a superficial note, Adam looked so handsome and I love his subdued, but very striking wardrobe. :)

  • cmc25

    A haunting and beautiful song from a gorgeous man.

    It’s so exciting to know that a second album will be released this fall.

    With rain and thunder, his WLL is an epic to remember.

    I cannot even get strarted on how much I FLOVE this song.it’s going on my iPod immediately. WOW.Just wow.I’m legit almost in tears.I like this type of Adam sooooo much better than the up tempo one because I listen to slow songs more because to me at least they mean more.if this is what the album is gonn be like WOW

    OMA my favorite song ever!!!!!!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    He gave us a stellar WLL for the encore, then left. The crowd stayed there in the rain and kept yelling, Adam Adam Adam and he came back and did a second encore Purple Haze and then he left again. The sound system was really really good.

    So cool! These days, one encore is pretty much expected, but it’s great that the crowd appreciated Adam so much that they brought him out again.

  • lorismile
  • sagi

    I kept waking up all night looking at the clock and got up way early because I knew there would be vids! I loved WLL with the pouring rain and all the umbrellas in the audience! So rock n roll! I so would have loved to be there! I can’t wait to hear the album version of the new song! Adam never disappoints!

    ETA I do hope it is plugged in a little more on the album, not over produced, but with the full band, at least.

  • luly

    I think that the song is really lovely.

  • LaurelG

    The new song is so lovely. Every Adam album should have at least one haunting ballad.

    The fact that so much of the crowd stayed in that downpour is pretty remarkable, and for a double encore no less. Thank you, Canada.

  • tls62

    Thank you, Canada

    I second this. Thank you, Canada. You’ve always been so supportive of Adam, and let’s face it, as for the GNT stops, you definitely ended up on the short end of the stick. I’m so happy Canada was able to get this premier on their stage. :)

    Your right, the TALC video is great. The chemistry between Monte and Adam when they perform together is sheer perfection.

  • lorismile

    The TALC video is so beautiful. Haunting and when he sang the “I don’t think we will” in anger at the end, very powerful. Eventually I will stop listening to it. Just not sure when.

    Goose bumps.

  • number8gurl

    I woke up with this song playing in my head…Adam’s incredibly beautiful voice, the haunting melody and heart-wrenching lyrics. Still blown away! The TALC vid is SO MUCH BETTER!

  • number8gurl

    I wonder if this is the song Adam wrote with B. C. Jean that she described as having a Romeo and Juliet theme. It is haunting.

    Haha GMTA :) I was discussing on Twitter with someone this morning that while the song is obviously deeply personal for Adam it has a universal appeal and could apply to any type of forbidden love…even Romeo & Juliette.

  • sagi

    I could really see this song being used in a movie soundtrack! It is so beautiful!

    ETA Isn’t there a new Twiglight movie premiering in November? What a perfect song for those two “outlaws of love”? (only half kidding)

  • JazzRocks

    The drought (if there ever really was one) appears to be over. First indication of the flood – an Adam2 song introduced during this fabulous concert. The song is very emotional and Adam’s voice is so very gorgeous. This concert ranks with the best of GNT and Moscow. Some say it was his “best evah”. Cause the guy just keeps getting better.

    And oh yeah – he looked sexRock!

  • hoosiermama

    Who screams during a haunting ballad? lol I really liked that–very very pretty.

  • theonlygirl

    More importantly, who screams Marry me! to a guy who’s singing about being in a relationship with a man that’s tormented by stupidity?

    SERIOUSLY!

  • Moria Polonius

    Who screams during a haunting ballad?

    Adam. ;)

  • Dera

    As a person being persecuted in my homeland because of my belief and moving to U.S. and not being accepted because of my nationality and yes again belief, I so much can relate to this song. I was in tears when I heard it for the first time last night. The lyrics are universal and brilliant. Adam almost sang it a cappella and I can’t wait to hear studio version of it. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING!

    Finally got to hear it. This song had a really weird effect on me, don’t even know how to describe it. First off, I am not a HUGE fan of watching the acoustic portions of Adams concerts. I’m more an upbeat Adam fan ( Soaked being the exception) but the lyrics on this really get to me- especially the part They say we’ll rot in hell…” I really want to hear the intended version of this song. I agree I think maybe Sia had a hand in this. Not a big fan of hers but fell in love with BREATHE ME when it was used in the closing series finale scene of Six Feet Under. Ironically the most touching part of that video ( from the show, not the actual MV) depicts the love between it’s two main male characters. Every time that part comes up, I cry- just like the “they say we’ll rot in hell, I don’t think we will part”.

    I guess what I am trying to say is that he just makes you feel those lyrics, lol. Can’t wait to hear the studio version.

    More importantly, who screams Marry me! to a guy who’s singing about being in a relationship with a man that’s tormented by stupidity?

    SERIOUSLY!

    Women always scream “marry me” to Adam. It’s not meant literally LOL…like we know he’s gay :) It’s just an expression of love and of course we’d all marry him in a ‘New York minute’ if it was a possibility :)

    As a person being persecuted in my homeland because of my belief and moving to U.S. and not being accepted because of my nationality and yes again belief, I so much can relate to this song. I was in tears when I heard it for the first time last night. The lyrics are universal and brilliant. Adam almost sang it a cappella and I can’t wait to hear studio version of it. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING!

    Dera: Good luck to you! I agree that the lyrics are so universal. I can relate to them through Adam and my own experience. What a gorgeous song.

    Cher: You are so lucky to have been there! Thanks for your recap. :)

    Well that didn’t take long. Someone has already worked out a beautiful instrumental version of Outlaws of Love on the piano. Really highlights how beautiful the melody is. Reminds me of when Adam said that “a great song is a great song,” and how a great song can transcend genres.

    I was  there. As amazing as the videos are, live was absolutely epic. Adam’s voice was insane, he never held back, and the band was also insane. I felt that each band member’s talents were showcased much more than they were during GNT. Adam literally had me at the first note of Outlaws of Love, and then my heart swelled more and more with each note. He left the stage right after, and the band jammed. He must have needed the time to compose himself, I know I did. The jam was a perfect transition and upped my respect for their musicianship. Amazing. Adam came back on the stage ready to party again. The fact that nobody moved when the rain came is a testament to how good it was. I’d expect die hard fans to stay, but I didn’t see anyone move. We were literally drenched, like we had just gone for a swim in the lake. Not only did everyone stay, but we screamed and screamed for a second encore. I took a friend who has always made fun of me for being a fan of a guy from a reality tv show, and he is now a huge fan. He loved Adam and he loved the band.

    O, thank you so much for the video!
    I am not particularly enchanted by the words, but there is no denying that the melody is gorges. Breathtaking. I would love to have an instrumental of this song with just a piano and maybe some violins.

    As always, amazing vocals.
    But, also important, Adam was so relaxed and really happy last night, so full of joy.

    … and Outlaws of Love touch my heart.

    Thnx Suz and the Talc ladies =)

    This song makes me so excited for album 2. I didn’t much care for Broken Open but loved Can’t Let You Go.
    I am really excited to see what they do with this in the studio. Will it get a sweeping orchestra like Soaked? It makes me more excited to hear what the other stuff is like \o/

    I was able to hold back my excitment for the second album cuz its so far away but now I can’t anymore :D

    Thank you for the partly translation of the article in french HoppersSkippersMiners,
    yeah, and the article calls Adam ” a proud representative of the gay community”…

    and the article also mentioned that he sang “Erotica ” ? Really ? *faint* *wake up while remembering that fun GNT soundcheck in Council Bluffs in which he also sang Erotica*. Hope Adam will sing “Ray of Light” in his next concert. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O568Sb6L1O4

  • milwlovesadam

    Erotica is the name for the musical interlude played by Isaac, Monte and TJR, before Sure Fire Winners. They have become, IMHO, even better playing together so much since GN ended.

  • Lynne

    This is a beautifully written song with vocals that take you everywhere the song intends for you to go. I’m really looking forward now to hearing the studio version.

    LOL I’m just the opposite, love Broken Open like crazy, but I have a tendency to skip the crescendoing piano Soaked when I’m playing the album (not the GNT live version though). I’m hoping for a similar subtle treatment, but even if he goes the complete opposite direction the lyrics will still be so poignant.

  • Q3

    This song and Adam’s performance of it was wonderful. The videos do not come close to elegance of his vocals.

    Also, on the videos it sounds like a lot of people we screaming inappropriately, it was mostly from one section with a really group of young fans — including the clueless “Marry Me” screamer. Most of the audience was absolutely silent during the performance.

    I always like Adam acoustic. Maybe because I focus on that amazing voice and not the over-the-top flamboyance. Did not like his first CD. Holding out hope that his “deeper, more organic” CD is something I’ll be interested in.

    I’m holding out hope his second CD will be as true to himself as it can be.

    And what is better than appreciating a song speaking about the cruelty he has to deal with because of being gay, because it doesn’t show his “flamboyance”?

  • number8gurl

    This song makes me so excited for album 2. I didn’t much care for Broken Open but loved Can’t Let You Go.

    In all honesty when I first got FYE I didn’t much care for Broken Open either but as time went on and I kept hearing Adam speak of the meaning behind the song I would listen to it again every now and then. I kind of started to understand it. I was glad when he dropped it from the US leg of the GNT with the piano/backing tracks? because it made me uncomfortable hearing people talk while he sang it (I don’t think it was the song I think it was the placement of the song in the setlist that wasn’t working). When he re-introduced it with the guitar overseas I LOVED IT (the video from the first show in Japan is particularly amazing and a tear-jerker). So over time I have come to love the song because to me (I warn you this is a bit deep and emo) it is a case study in perception and introspection on Adam’s part. He talks about his perception of these people that continue to fall apart in his company and conducts some serious introspection (I’m sure) trying to figure out just why he has this effect on people. It just seems to me to be intensely personal to Adam and now when I listen to the studio track I really listen to each and every word and really let myself ‘go there’ with him. IDK it just really has a profound effect on me now.

    I also love Can’t Let You Go but for some reason I don’t feel that Adam is as personally connected to that song as he is to Broken Open. Quite frankly, the lyrics of CLYG are so heart-breaking I hope Adam NEVER can personally relate to the song. To know that he ever felt that much pain would rip my heart out of my chest.

    I also feel that Outlaws of Love is intensely personal for Adam. The lyrics to me seem like an imprint of his dear, sweet, precious heart <3

    OK no more emo :)

    I love acoustic Adam as well but I don’t want an entire album of deep, serious songs. I like fun Adam, I LOVE sexy Adam, I love dancey Adam, I love OTT and flamboyant because those are all facets of Adam the man. He has promised there will be plenty of nasty and also said the album will be “closer to the earth”, call things out, show his true feelings and more truth but I don’t take that to mean all of the songs are going to be ‘organic’ and ‘deep’. You really can’t dance to those type of songs. I love Outlaws of Love but I don’t think it’s meant to be representative of the sound/theme of the album. I’m not a fan of albums full of sound-alike songs (example: Adele and David Cook) with basically the same theme throughout and while Adam’s album#2 probably won’t be AS diverse as FYE I do think it will offer a variety of the types of music that Adam sings and performs well which is melodic ballads, dance pop and rock (less glitter, more leather). The difference is going to be that Adam will have tremendous personal contribution to the lyrics, title and production of every single song.

    I think we’re all going a bit nuts waiting to hear it :) I know I am.

    Hehe and I loved Saoked on the album but even more during GN. As much as the lyrics for Broken Open are deep and meaningful I just can’t listen to that type of atmospheric music haha just not in my wheelhouse at all. Just like didn’t like the album version of Aftermath but love the acoustic and remixed versions.

    I am so looking forward to hearing his new album..and I know of at least one song I like so I know its worth buying ;)

  • Dlynne

    Gorgeous song. Adam sounds amazing, too.

  • cwm

    Interesting to read people’s reactions to Broken Open. That has always been one of my favorite tracks on FYE. I find it so intimate, so loving, and so intensely personal that it deeply touches me everytime I hear it. Especially when I listen carefully to the tender way that he vocalizes the words. And I find the melody really beautiful too.

    Outlaws of Love has this same kind of effect on me. Deeply touching, very emotional.

    I love CLYG too — it’s heartbreaking for sure, but it just doesn’t feel as personal and intimate to me.

  • cwm

    smeggingnuts:

    Agreed. The Billboard remix of Aftermath has become my favorite version. My ears love it.

    number8gurl — I think your assessment of the album is pretty accurate. Adam says that it will be more personal and closer to the earth, but I still expect that the album will be a mix of serious and fun, and of downtempo and uptempo.

    I wonder how that song will sound in the album, hope something like CLYG.
    Wow, he “wrote the song”, sounds good; I would like, though, the first song to be a dance&rock Fever like tune. He needs a megahit to begin the new era.

    I remember being sad when he dropped Broken Open from GNT before the concert we were attending. Diversity. :-)

  • milwlovesadam

    Okay, maybe I’m a bad fan, but, CLYG is so overproduced to me. And, Broken Open too. Now, that being said, I loved Broken Open on the tour. I had a chance to see him sing it live 3 times. The purity of his voice and the live production was just so gorgeous. I have a special CD with the Broken Open from Japan on it. “Beautiful” is not a strong enough adjective to describe it. “Sublime” comes close…..

    This new song is reminiscent of that. I do wonder what the CD version will be like. I’m thinking and hoping for a power ballad.

  • Lock

    Okay, maybe I’m a bad fan, but, CLYG is so overproduced to me.

    I absolutely love CLYG. His vocal is insane!!! Now, Outlaws of Love has been stuck in my head since yesterday. I have had it on repeat all the time. When I am not able to listen as I am doing housework, I found myself singing the song. I just can’t get enough of the song.

    I so cannot wait to hear the studio version and I want the album like now!!! :D

  • milwlovesadam

    In all honesty, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a “clean” version of CLYG. I don’t have the CD it was on. ( Bad Fan, Bad Fan). The way everybody raves about it, i probably need to try to get a better version. I would love to hear it live though, as would so many of us.

    I’m on pins and needles here in my Adam fanworld. So much goodness coming these next few weeks. Is it August 7th yet?

  • milwlovesadam

    “”Haha please not like the album version of Aftermath, please please””

    Heeheee. Smeggs! I agree. I wasn’t a fan of two songs on FYE, Loaded Smile and Aftermath. Way too much production, not enough voice. But, Aftermath grew on me live, especially as he lowered the register more and more on tour. It became one of my faves. I wouldn’t mind a power ballad on Outlaws, as long as the vocal is allowed to shine–crystal clear!!

  • milwlovesadam

    I’m thinking back to power ballads, power singers of the 80’s that Adam has always reminded me of, vocally, that is. Sorry, they are gals. The Heart sisters and Pat Benatar. Pat Benatar was vocally trained as an opera singer, Adam has been trained that way too ( at least in part). Pat Benatar’s power ballads were produced to allow her voice to come through, and not be overshadowed by technical sounds. IMHO, Adam needs this.

  • bridgette12

    “”Haha please not like the album version of Aftermath, please please

    I guess I am in a very small minority that loved the album version of Aftermath. I think on the album OOL is going to be even more powerful than what he did in concert. I can’t wait to see what they are going to do to it.

    just remember there are great 80’s power ballads and then there are really BAD 80’s power ballads lol

    I understand what you mean but I kinda hope the sound isn’t throwback. But its so hard to tell where he plans to go with it for the album since its such a stripped down version.

  • smeggingnuts
  • sagi

    I hope for at least some production, a full band perhaps. It would not take away from the vocals with a little more band effect. Especially in the chorus to make it more powerful. I don’t even know what I am trying to say. I love it the way it is but think it could be more powerful with a little more backing. It just needs to be plugged in a little, KWIM?

    I don’t think he hates youtube gferna, he joked during the concert that fans would probably have OOL on youtube that night, and he tweeted one of the best youtubes of it himself.

    If you’re talking about his tweet, pretty sure he was setting the record straight mostly for people who read Perez Hilton, who had just posted incorrectly on his site that OOL was his single. Perez may be a complete douche, but his site has a huge readership.

    Very pretty, but I’m not a big fan of pretty. I thought the last album had too much of this type of thing, so I’m not thrilled that this is the first glimpse of the new album. Of course, the rest could be way different, so I’m not closing my ears yet.

  • purplegirl

    This song is amazing, combined with Adam’s vocals its haunting and gorgeous and makes me want to cry, I cant stop listening to it. I definately think it will be different on the album but it wont be any less powerful I dont think. Amazing, amazing, Adam is so amazing………..

  • TLKC

    Agree with Mils and Smeggs on Aftermath. I did like the cd version but it took a while to grown on me. The acoustic was out-of-this-world for me in a second.

    Sincerely hope that Adam’s description of OOL as a “lament” means that he intends to keep it this way. Also the fact that he has ruled it out as the single: sounds like it doesn’t have to be “popped up” to meet radio play requirements.

    But we’ll have to wait and see.

    NO you are not in the minority, I know many that love Aftermath as much as I do, my husband who is not an Adam fan, would get in the car and go right to Aftermath and turn it on, he said he thought it would be a hit, I didnt enjoy Loaded Smile so much but loved Aftermath in any form

  • JazzRocks

    I love all aspects of Adam’s music and I LOVE that he has so many different musical voices. OOL is sung beautifully and the lyrics are personal and heartfelt. I adore it. But sometimes I’m in the mood for OTT Adam – and there is lots of that. I get bored with one-dimensional performers I guess. Adam is never that.
