Adam Lambert New Album Announcement

Adam Lambert dropped by the UK chat show This Morning to drop some exciting news.

“I’m very excited to announce that I have a new album coming out,” the American Idol alum and Queen front man revealed to hosts Alison and Dermot. “It is an album of covers and it’s called High Drama.”

Joking that as an artist, he’s not known for subtly, Adam shared his thinking. “Let me do an album where I take songs that you probably know, maybe a few that you don’t know, and completely flip them around so that they feel like something new, like something that you haven’t heard before.”

Most likely, the cover of “Mad About the Boy” by Noel Coward, which Adam released in October, will appear on the new set. The song is the theme for the documentary, Mad About the Boy, due out in 2023.
