- Watch Adam’s interview after the jump.
An excerpt from the Q&A below. Read it HERE. (Good news: Adam will appear on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and will be one of Barbara Walter’s Most Fascinating People of 2009. And if I’m reading correctly, he will be closing act Sunday night at the AMAs)
The interview took place right before the 2012 premiere.
The title track-which was produced by Dr. Luke, who co-wrote it with Claude Kelly-is now being worked to top 40 and hot AC radio. “I wanted to release something that would be played in a club, that would make you dance on New Year’s, ” Lambert says.
He means that literally-“Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve With Ryan Seacrest” is one of the TV appearances lined up for Lambert in the coming months; the campaign starts Nov. 22 with his show-closing performance at the American Music Awards. Besides the typical rounds of morning and late-night talk shows, Lambert will be interviewed as one of the “Most Fascinating People” of 2009. “Adam is so telegenic. It’s going to be a visual launch, ” Corson says.
A video for “For Your Entertainment” is forthcoming. It’s directed by Ray Kay, who did the video for Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”
