Adam Lambert: Producer Rob Cavallo Spills Album Details, Song Titles

Lindsey Parker of Yahoo music sat down earlier today for an interview with producer Rob Cavallo, who worked on 6 tracks for the upcoming Adam Lambert album. He also produced the 2012 soundtrack theme, “Time For Miracles”.

Finally, we’ve got some song titles. Cavallo leaks a few: “Winners”, “Music Again” and “Suburban Decay.”

Cavallo is full of praise for Adam, calling him one of the most gifted singers he’s ever recorded, in addition to being a great guy and fun to hang out with. Cavallo promises “amazing” songs, and calls the album, “a whole new thing.”

When pressed for a release date for “Time for Miracles”, Cavallo settled on October 18, but he didn’t seem entirely sure.

A glam rock, electro pop, glam robot invasion–classic rock, but with a lot of pop and dance elements to it is how Cavallo describes the album. He says his songs have the rock element, but with something new.

  1. It’s Christmas! YAY! Hello Adamstorm!

    Okay, if Adam can sing every note on a guitar, how many octaves is that?

    We have a release date now of Oct16, 18, and 20th. WHICH ONE IS IT?

  2. OMG… so much news today!! *puts on galoshes for the adamstorm*

    SINGING IN THE RAIN, JUST SINGING IN THE RAIN…. WHAT A GLORIOUS FEEEEELING IM HAPHAPHAPPY AGAIN!

  3. A tweet from someone who interviewed Adam today

    yongchavezLA: Adam said Strut won’t be his 1st single, and TMF will come out on the 18th. Twas a vshort interview. More info later.

  4. Oct 18th is a Sunday…is that a typical day for releases? I tend to think not…but Adam is special! :-)

  5. There are so many Adam-ish threads I don’t know what to do or where to be….

  6. yongchavezLA: Adam said Strut won’t be his 1st single, and TMF will come out on the 18th. Twas a vshort interview. More info later.

    There are so many Adam-ish threads I don’t know what to do or where to be’ ¦.

    it’s hard to be an Adam fan b/c he is everywhere…

  8. i feel like i have ADD(am)… too much to read/see/listen to… can’t focus!

  9. I think I’m in love with Glam Robot Invasion a phrase, all by itself and with the added bonus of being a very interesting way to describe Adam’s music. Or indeed describing Adam himself.

    And the 18th seems like an odd date to release music. ETA: so yeah, it is going to be Oct. 18th. They release music on odd days these days.

    Cool about the ‘sing every note of the guitar,’ thing. I like hearing actual explanations from musical people about their musical reasoning. Though the flailing is nice too.

    Oh and orchestra for a song for Adam, not just TfM, yessss. I knew his going in was too late for TfM :)

  10. WOW Four Adam threads in a row!

    you Adam fans are super lucky tonight….i’m off to get an umbrella to protect myself from the Adam Storm..lol

  11. It’s such a great interview. Kudos to Lyndsey Parker for getting the scoop and keeping it professional. No fangirl squeeing from her in that interview.

    Plenty of squeeing from me though.

  12. Suburban Decay sounds cool!

    Squirrely- Lidsey was right on top of that. The first thing I thought was that sounds like an MCR or GD title. And she said that! And he said, yes…but a new sound.

    Please don’t be shitting, Rob Cavallo.

  13. ITA, Squirely.

    I
    CANNOT
    HANDLE
    SO
    MANY
    ADAM
    THREADS
    IN
    ONE
    DAY ;)

    I think Winners (apropos) or Music Again will be the first single, but I want to hear Suburban Decay. ;) Green Day meets My Chemical Romance? OMFG

    ETA: I wonder if Lindsey went into the bathroom and squeed and flailed uncontrollably after the interview?!

  14. All the notes on a guitar (excluding harmonics) — about fourish full octaves or close to it.

    It’s pretty much the whole vocal range of baritones, tenors, altos, and mezzo sopranos, with a little bit more on top. Doesn’t quite go to the lowest low a bass would go to or the highest high of a first soprano. It’s a lot.

    Honestly, in the very short time they have and the kind of chaotic way they do these albums, I don’t really see how they can walk the fine line that excellent production of an album in these genres requires to not have that “way-overproduced” sound. They don’t have the time to make really fine judgments and tweakings on the production end, I fear.

    Well, just as long as they leave Adam’s voice doing what Adam’s voice does, I guess.

  15. Cavallo said Adam can only sing a song that he loves, and that he is very hands on. I find that very encouraging to hear. Whatever we hear from the album, at least we know it’s partly Adam and not just 19.

    I’m not so worried anymore.

    Hard….. but oh, so rewarding. :)

    mj, I’m laughing trying to keep up with all your threads!! lol

  17. omg I can’t keep up with all the Adam news today. people release something already. we.cant. take.much..more.

    so strut is not the first single?. so is it obsession then?. Adam said on seacreast they haven’t chosen a single yet , I bet he knows exactly which song is the first single.

  18. I’m betting a release to music stations, etc. on the 18th and a purchase release on the 20th for TFM!
    Any way we get it – it’s good….

  19. An epic Adam news day!! Love that interview with Cavallo. Love that girl Lyndsey, she knows how to get the scoop. Song titles! He can sing every note on the guitar! Rob confirms that Adam has artistic say in what happens. This is just so good. I’ll walk around smiling all day now. I’m so excited for the music!

    TfM in five days, or not, depending on if Cavallo got his dates right. I originally saw the 20th in print somewhere, which is a Tuesday, so who knows? It doesn’t matter, the Adam storm is here!! No umbrella needed. It’s good to get wet.

    Encouraging is right, Sunn!! And just as good– he said Adam’s sound is NEW!. He kept saying that.
    I think that is significant!
    No one puts our HBIC in a box!!

  21. partial transcript of Cavallo:

    Adam Lambert is probably one of the most gifted singers I’ve ever recorded. He’s unbelievable. He’s got a limitless range. He can actually sing every note that’s on the guitar from the lowest to the highest. Which is a very, very unusual thing. And he’s actually the greatest, nicest guy. He comes in. He just wants to do a great job. He’s fun to hang out with and I think we have some amazing songs.

  22. I’m on Adam-overload right now! My brain is shorting out after so much time with nothing. Very exciting. Thanks for providing all these threads mj.

  23. There are so many Adam-ish threads I don’t know what to do or where to be’ ¦.

    LOL, exactly how I feel! I’m trying to get some things done today, and whenever I come back to the computer something new and exciting has happened. Fabulous interview w/Cavallo! Love how enthusiastic he is about working with Adam. I’m always so happy when Adam’s collaborators mention how great he is to work with. I would admire Adam for his talent no matter what, but what makes him special is that he is also a genuinely good person. The connections and relationships he makes and develops now will pave the way for long-term success. Adam has a gift for connecting and relating to people, and I think industry insiders are won over by his charisma and genuineness. As are his fans… :)

  24. Strut won’t be his 1st single

    I’m relieved. I did not want his first single to be a Kara song.

    OMG, this interview was so good. I love the enthusiasm. The way he’s describing Adam’s sound sounds amazing! The two songs with the 30 pc orchestra will be on the CD, right? They wouldn’t go ahead with the whole production, would they?

    ETA: rblaha1234, I love that!

  25. Someone said “wanted to add’ ¦who needs to play the guitar when you can sing like one LMAO”

  26. I wonder if Lindsey went into the bathroom and squeed and flailed uncontrollably after the interview?!

    Hopefully she did. Otherwise I have visions of her first interview with Adam where she could hardly hold the camera.

  27. did we get song titles? winners, music again and surburban decay?. i wasn’t sure if Rob was serious or not.

    There are so many Adam-ish threads I don’t know what to do or where to be’ ¦.

    True-but that’s the kind of dilemma I welcome! :mrgreen:

  29. Ahh! Fianlly got to hear the interview! Thank you, MJ!!! You are the best :-)

    Love it! Everything sounds so cool. Lots of “new sounds” on this album. Yes!

  30. Encouraging is right, Sunn!! And just as good’“ he said Adam’s sound is NEW!. He kept saying that.
    I think that is significant!
    No one puts our HBIC in a box!!

    Yes he did. He kept saying the word new until lyndsey pressed him on the sound and he said It’s an Adam sound and it’s new.

    My life just got a little better after hearing that. No one, not even Cavallo, is willing to box Adam in a genre or style – one tends to feel from the talk that one can’t compare him or try to categorize him, because he’s new.

    He is (touch wood, crossing fingers and god willing) a Black Swan.

  31. Cavallo said Adam can only sing a song that he loves…. ” from someone WHO NEEDS A GUITAR WHEN YOU CAN SING LIKE ONE

  32. The connections and relationships he makes and develops now will pave the way for long-term success.

    The fact that Cavallo is now “Director of Music” or whatever his new title is can’t hurt Adam either. And you’re right, greeneyedlady, it never hurts to nice and “fun to hang with.” I think because he’s had to work so hard to get “discovered,” he truly appreciates the opportunities. So different from demanding divas of both sexes.

  33. i feel like i have ADD(am)’ ¦ too much to read/see/listen to’ ¦ can’t focus!

    So true, twinks!! Good one.

    Dying. Flailing. Hyperventilating. Dying again …

  34. someone from IDF went to the AMA thing this morning .lots of information http://idolforums.com/index.php?showtopic=629936&st=540

    OMG, I hope everyone reads this. The part about ‘little Adam’  was hilarious.

    OMG indeed. Lordy lordy. Good read, though!

    It’s an Adam sound and it’s new.

    ^^THIS! Loved Rob Cavallo’s line about how it was a distinctly ADAM sound! Makes me very excited for this!

  35. WoW!!! This is Adam tornado, not a storm, and I am whirling in the wind. Don ´t know where to go to start reading. I cannot put my feelings in words.

    So many awesome things said by Cavallo about Adam as a person and as a singer. OMFG. I need to flail and squeak. This is siiiiick!!!!!

    We are about to have a Glam Robot Invasion from Planet Fierce!

  36. Info from the Idol Forum link:

    My OTHER question I managed to get out was how many songs did HE co-write and with who. He said he co-wrote about 6 or 7. He wrote with Kara Dioguardi and he’s written a LOT with Greg Wells (who he’s been working with the past few days (out of like 24 or so).

    He also said he has about another week of recording. And that after that, once they get all the masters then he and the label will get together and listen to what they’ve got and start picking songs.

  37. We are about to have a Glam Robot Invasion from Planet Fierce!

    Love it!!

  38. Whatever we hear from the album, at least we know it’s partly Adam and not just 19.

    I’m not so worried anymore.

    Yes, this makes me a little more optimistic as well. Really good to hear from Rob.

  39. Four octaves plus nine half steps on a conventionally tuned Fender Stratocaster.

    Open E on the bass string to E four octaves higher at the 12th fret of the first string. Then, nine more frets gets you up to C#.

    There are 24 fret guitars that would give you another two half steps up to D#/Eb.

  40. Also from the IDFer

    Oh, and EVERYONE there was screaming Adam’s name! Some called out for Paula, but the majority was for Adam. No one screamed for Snoop Dogg.

    EVERYONE loves ADAM <3 <3

  41. Reading the comments on these threads, I just flashed on Adam during Hollywood Week saying how he wants to take a song we’ve heard a hundred times before … then that earnestness when he says, “I can.”

    It totally makes me want to choke up. He had to fight for this and he did. And man, the world is listening.

    Yes Sunn, ITA! It all sounds amazingly good, doesn’t it!?!

    It’s a good day to be an Adam fan.

    It totally makes me want to choke up. He had to fight for this and he did. And man, the world is listening.

    That is one of my favorite moments… because there was such intelligent determination in those two little words and that jaw setting look he gave. It said to the world, “Take me seriously. I’m worth it.”

    And of course, he is.

  45. There are so many Adam-ish threads I don’t know what to do or where to be’ ¦.

    I feel the same. I have so many windows open …. and there is still MORE to come this afternoon!!!!!!

    This is like all my favorite holidays rolled into one.

  46. He is (touch wood, crossing fingers and god willing) a Black Swan.

    You were right Sunn, Black Swan indeed. Hey, album title?

  47. This is like all my favorite holidays rolled into one.

    LOL! And you know, the really really scary thing is – we don’t even have the actual single yet ;-) OMG – it is going to be full on hurricane when that baby comes out!

  48. I feel the same. I have so many windows open ‘ ¦. and there is still MORE to come this afternoon!!!!!!

    MORE!

  49. Moved from another thread:

    Adam’s fantastic range.. he can sing ever note ont eh guitar

    OK, well that confirms that he can go below the baritone range (assuming standard guitar tuning) and hit an E2. Some people claim to have measured a D2 but it has been debated. This finally settles that one.

    My guess is Adam has even more on the lower range then we have ever heard and he’s only. E2 to Bb5 (upper range from other sources and is well documented!)

    So TfM will be released on 10/18/09 — wasn’t clear if that was also the on-sale date or the date we get to hear the whole song.

    My favorite 3 words in the interview “New Adam Sound”.

    Also interesting when he said that Adam can’t sing something he doesn’t feel regarding Adam’s role in song choice. Sounds to be like Adam is really getting some choice on the songs he’s recording.

    And 2 album songs with a 30 piece string orchestra produced by Rob Cavallo says to me — two theatrical rock songs with Adam’s vocals and Cavallo’s signature “wall of sound” and background vocals. Love it.

    “electro pop” and “glam” and something new!

  52. someone from IDF went to the AMA thing this morning .lots of information http://idolforums.com/index.php?showtopic=629936&st=540

    There was a lot of good information from this poster. I found this part interesting:
    “I just have to say that he was SO made for this. He was SO relaxed, so charming, so patient, so polite with all of the reporters. He got asked a lot of the same questions over and over again and he answered them like he was being asked the first time.”

    He is such a professional. Who lucked out and got the PR job for Adam? Talk about a dream job.

  53. he’s written a LOT with Greg Wells (who he’s been working with the past few days (out of like 24 or so).

    So I guess this is confirmation that Greg Wells tweet last night was about our boy. I knew it was, but it’s nice to have confirmation!

  54. Finally, we’ve got some song titles. Cavallo leaks a few: ‘Winners’ , ‘Music Again’  and ‘Suburban Decay.’ 

    I love this.I love this sooooo much…

  55. ‘I can.’ 

    ok tears fell at work now – I am soo very happy for Adam!

  56. Dishofsalt tweeted:

    Adam intv went great! Should be up 2nite online. My exclusive surprise cant be revealed til the 20th. U have to wait for that. Its worth it

    So another interview tonight.

    I wonder what the surprise could be?

  57. Ironically, we found out from Adam that Strut is not his first single, so that means he is inadvertently confirming that there is a song named Strut, Yeah!!!

  58. It totally makes me want to choke up. He had to fight for this and he did. And man, the world is listening.

    Oh yes he did and oh yes it is! I was flailing & squeeing until I read this and now I’m choked up too. This is all so wonderful!

  59. And Jim C tweeted:

    MTV News team in LA got brizzoculent news from @adamlambert at AMAs today. Can’t wait for the footage to get sent over here so I can write!!

  60. 4evrmomof4: Ironically, we found out from Adam that Strut is not his first single, so that means he is inadvertently confirming that there is a song named Strut, Yeah!!!

    So we now know 4 song titles — maybe 5 with “Obsession” — but based on what Adam said on Ryan’s show the album songs haven’t been picked yet — so no one knows what will make the final cut.

    But I really want them all — 1 album with 2 discs — 2 albums — only digital — I really don’t care.

    thanks a lot Susan… good thing im working at home so no one can see me crying over an american idol contestant (turned world SUPAHSTAH ;) )

    i love his brilliant mixture of humble and confident!

  65. ‘I just have to say that he was SO made for this. He was SO relaxed, so charming, so patient, so polite with all of the reporters. He got asked a lot of the same questions over and over again and he answered them like he was being asked the first time.’ 

    During the tour a writer said to Adam that he looked looked so comfortable like he had been doing this all his life (interviewing).

  66. Cavallo’s statement about Adam’s range, literally, gave me chills!

  67. @twinkle i love his brilliant mixture of humble and confident!

    I’m sure this sounds so corny, but that was something that really hit me early in the AI season. I always stop and think about his mom and what a fabulous job she did raising him (dad too, but I always think of his mother for some reason.) Yeah, I know. Sappy.

  68. So TfM will be released on 10/18/09 ‘” wasn’t clear if that was also the on-sale date or the date we get to hear the whole song.

    That’s a Sunday.

    Seeing as Rob first thought it was December, getting the date wrong doesn’t seem to be much of a stretch!
    I’m thinking it is still release on the 16th, sell on the 20th.

  69. Dishofsalt tweeted:

    Adam intv went great! Should be up 2nite online. My exclusive surprise cant be revealed til the 20th. U have to wait for that. Its worth it

    Possibilities:
    – SNL appearance – can’t see they would give that to Laura
    – Tour Info – don’t think that we will hear anything about the tour until after the album single is released
    – Name of single – not picked yet per Adam and he doesn’t lie – he just says he can’t say.
    – Live performance date that is not GMA or AMA – possible

    Prediction: Something about the album — my guess the Title — he said the photo was picked, I think the marketing campaign is put together already, so there must be an album Title.

  70. I hope Laura Saltman asked Adam about SNL. If Adam says that was a rumor, then that is that. Any other response would mean yes (e.g., I can’t say, etc.).

  71. Will the music video be released at the same time as the song? (TfM)

  72. – Tour Info ‘“ don’t think that we will hear anything about the tour until after the album single is released

    Adam said on Ryan’s show this morning that no tour until they see how album sells.

  73. Buderschnookie: Seeing as Rob first thought it was December, getting the date wrong doesn’t seem to be much of a stretch!
    I’m thinking it is still release on the 16th, sell on the 20th.

    10/20/09 on-sale sound right, but Sunday on-sale dates are becoming more common. New songs are added to the iTunes catalog every day — not just on Tuesdays and they put Kris’ album on sale on a Friday. So who knows what they will do with TfM.

  74. My God, I have SOOO much work to do, but it seems like the universe has declared this Adam Day, so how does one work through the glittery hoopla.
    So much great news. I left for an interview and came back to such a wonderful bonanza. It will take me the rest of the day to catch up.
    I’ve got tears and smiles and flails! And this is just another small step forward!
    With that, I’ll simply say, Happy Adam Day, y’all. Here’s to many more.

  75. Dallas: Will the music video be released at the same time as the song? (TfM)

    No one has said anything about TfM MV release date. But since they are promoting the movie, I would bet on it.

  76. All this Adam news makes me want to say…..“It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life…..and I’m feelin……Goooooooood!!!!” ;-)

    I find it really refreshing and interesting that Adam is the most realistic person in terms of his album’s success. Love him!!!

  84. OK. I’m getting addicted to Jim’s brizzoculent. When Cavallo was trying to describe Adam’s range, I thought, “Just say it’s brizzoculent! We’ll get what you mean!”

  85. but it seems like the universe has declared this Adam Day,

    I started this in the morning but got myself in trouble with my exuberance. So I’ll have to sneak my champagne glass in for a toast.

  86. umm Kay this is like the busiest day ever!!!! but…

    is there a YouTube link 4 this and the seacrest interview?

  87. WOWO.W.. I guess from Cavallo’s interview we can find out Adam’s real range. I don’t play guitar.. who know what’s the lowest and highest not in a guitar?

  88. OK which thread does this belong. I’m so excited I can’t figure it out. Jim C tweets:

    HUGE Adam news coming in the next hour. Dude, thanks for hooking up MTV News with an atomic bomb. @adamlambert

  89. I have gotten *this* much work done today. And by *this* much I mean about nothing.

    I am internally jumping up and down, I am so excited.

    luv, go here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LpxQdASibg (AMAs)

    mj has the Seacrest interview at the top of this thread (I think? I’m lost now!)

    ETA: I am about to pass out with excitement. Adam Nor’easter!!!

  90. Adam said on Ryan’s show this morning that no tour until they see how album sells.

    Well, that should be a short wait. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this much excitement about anyone (except perhaps MJ) …

    Bring on the arenas!

  91. I’m trying to keep on topic in the Adam threads, but there are so many!

    Anyway, apparently, another reporter tweeted that Adam told her TFM would be out on the 18th of October. So, it sounds like Rob C. was correct. Which means…. Saturday?

  92. Wow, what could Cantiello have up his sleeve? What is the HUGE news? I mean, MORE HUGE news? My heart.
    More flailing! Must. Work. Now.

    ETA: Today is like a feast when all you’ve had for weeks are crumbs and, um, snippets.

  93. Prediction: Something about the album ‘” my guess the Title ‘” he said the photo was picked, I think the marketing campaign is put together already, so there must be an album Title.

    star: Adam told Ryan Seacrest this morning there’s no title yet.

    Oh you’re right. Back to the prediction drawing board!

  94. twinkle:how can we explode again if we already exploded!

    My favorite quote on this thread. Halfie had the favorite quote on the earlier thread.

  95. Jim C tweets again:

    HUGE Adam news coming in the next hour. Dude, thanks for hooking up MTV News with an atomic bomb. @adamlambert

    HUUGE news?!

  96. I don’t think it’s just the range, but how Adam can go from low to high to low, so seamlessly and effortlessly. He has so much more in his arsenal. He can sing an entire song in his falsetto voice and make it so beautiful. Adam’s phrasing and breath control is flawless. I think the industry is excited about Adam because we haven’t had a young male artist who can sing like this in years (not in the US, anyway).

    I think Cavallo wording of “gifted” says it all.

  97. what huuggee news could cantiello possibly have that would not have been disclosed to Seacrest this am?

  98. HUGE Adam news coming in the next hour. Dude, thanks for hooking up MTV News with an atomic bomb. @adamlambert

    Someone pass me a paper bag, I am feeling light headed.

  99. Yep, Saturday for TFM (which isn’t out of the question, considering that the snippet already was released). I cannot believe, honestly, that Cavallo was SO EXCITED about working with Adam. I mean, how many producers are THIS excited about working with an artist? He couldn’t stop raving. I am stunned (in a *good* way). Not surprised, tho, b/c from the first time he sang, I was like, OMG, wow.

    At Top 3, after Crazy:

    Kara: Who hits those notes?!
    Randy (laughing): Adam Lambert does. He does.

    As Ryan said: “…all your life culminating in this release.”

    HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES!!!

    Just wow.

  100. Also when Paula said: “He’s the best we’ve seen in every city.”

  101. A guess — Rolling Stone Cover #2? We know that they are working on a major Adam piece and there is that mysterious SoCal photoshoot, and they cover movies and music.

  102. OK, well that confirms that he can go below the baritone range (assuming standard guitar tuning) and hit an E2. Some people claim to have measured a D2 but it has been debated. This finally settles that one.

    My guess is Adam has even more on the lower range then we have ever heard and he’s only. E2 to Bb5 (upper range from other sources and is well documented!)

    Q3, so does that mean his range is 3.5 or really close to 4 octaves? Just wondering.

  103. I mean, how many producers are THIS excited about working with an artist?

    Ummm….Suebrody….seems like everyone of them that have worked with Adam so far…Redone, Greg Wells, Rob Cavallo,…ect…. ;-)

  104. Regarding guitar range “typical” tuning is E2 – D6 I believe — and I guess Adam could hit a D6 in falsetto. Who the hell knows!

    ETA: Which happens to be slightly more than bass to soprano range. It’s still just sinking in what that means.

    ETA #2: That also probably means that the backing track that Adam sings on TfM that is so high is real, not altered. Technically — I think that is classified as a WTF vocal range.

    ETA #3: He range with falsetto must be 4+ octaves. He’s been sandbagging us! LOL!

  105. I mean, how many producers are THIS excited about working with an artist?

    Ummm’ ¦.Suebrody’ ¦.seems like everyone of them that have worked with Adam so far’ ¦Redone, Greg Wells, Rob Cavallo,’ ¦ect’ ¦.

    because he can sang!!! That’s why!! and he has great personality.. :grin:

  106. Regarding guitar range ‘typical’  tuning is E2 ‘“ D6 I believe ‘” and I guess Adam could hit a D6 in falsetto. Who the hell knows!

    Thank You Q3.

  107. Regarding guitar range ‘typical’  tuning is E2 ‘“ D6 I believe ‘” and I guess Adam could hit a D6 in falsetto. Who the hell knows!

    Those DDD people- that’s who! Doesn’t one of our regulars post there? Someone needs to ask them

  108. Just checked the screening times for “This is It”–11:00 pm on October 27–a work night and a school night. Agh!!! Can’t they make this easier on us.

    The movie is 2 hours long. Dare I go JUST for the TFM video and then leave?

  109. Maybe we will get the album cover photo on MTV news. I have no idea…just guessing.

    Thanks MJ for keeping me informed while I was at work today. Your site rocks! (Although technically I did almost no work)

  110. Lambert is especially happy about where fans will be able to see the “Time for Miracles” video: the big screen. “The ‘2012’ trailer that we put together with the [‘Time for Miracles’ music video] will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film,” Lambert revealed to MTV News, referring to a special trailer that will run before the upcoming documentary “Michael Jackson’s This Is It.”

    WOW — the Hurricane Adam just upgraded to a Category 7!!

  111. wow, nvm… i didnt refresh. tons of others posting it.

    that’s a pretty awesome plug for the song!! when is that premiering again?

  112. OMG! TFM MV premieres at the MJ movie!!!
    Quick, when does that movie debut?

  113. OMG! the video will premier at the Michael Jackson film??? Wow this PR is out of this world. Perfect for a glittery alien!!!

  114. Oh my Ra!
    TfM released on Saturday, AND the video on the big screen!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Adamstorm today has reduced me to a squeeing, flailing mess. I’m squailing….

  115. Those DDD people- that’s who! Doesn’t one of our regulars post there? Someone needs to ask them

    They have his top note as Bb5 just like everyone else. In Jim Cantiello’s article he quotes Adam saying that Cavallo push him to his limit vocally — and I think that Cavallo must have discovered that Adam can hit a D6 and then ran out of note on the guitar!

    Who sing notes like this? Adam Lambert! Miriah Carey better watch out!

  116. 4 Adam threads in a day… Thank you MJ!

    NEWS.. ALL ADAM NEWS.. guys.. this is what we get for being so patients all this time… Thank you Adam.. thank you RCA/19.

    Couldn’t wait for October 18 to hear the TFM… and soon, as Adam said, we’ll hear his single.. :grin:

  117. HOLY HOLY SHIT UM WOWWWWW

    I justlistened to seacrest.I need cavallo then i’ll be caught up…

  118. HOLY SMOKES……….This is so fricking awesome…..Adam on the big screen.

  119. So that is the premiere ….how long do you think it will be before the rest of the world sees it?

  120. The Adamstorm today has reduced me to a squeeing, flailing mess. I’m squailing’ ¦.

    LOL greeneyedlady!

    “Squailing” is my new favorite word.

    back to SQUAILING in this ADAM SQUALL!

  121. So that is the premiere ‘ ¦.how long do you think it will be before the rest of the world sees it?

    This Is It, the documentary film about Michael Jackson’s ill-fated comeback tour, will premiere simultaneously in 15 cities across the globe on October 27 and 28.

  122. Adam Lambert music video to premiere before THIS IS IT!!!! http://tinyurl.com/ygtzumk @perezhilton @ryanseacrest @ewmichaelslezak @god

    Jim is so proud of himself – he rubs it in to perez, seacrest, slezak, and GOD! lol

  123. Re This Is It:

    According to Reuters, hundreds of screenings in North America have already sold out, a month before the film’s October 28 opening.

    Among the cities with the strongest sales are Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and New York. Records were also set in Japan, where more than $1 million in tickets were sold on the first day they were available. In London, fans bought more than 30,000 tickets on the first day, eclipsing the advance interest in the “Harry Potter” and “The Lord of the Rings” films, which were wildly popular in Britain. Record sales were also reported in Holland, Sweden, Belgium and New Zealand.

    The documentary will have a limited two-week run, which might explain the rush on tickets. On Sunday, all 3,000 spots for a Los Angeles advance screening of “This Is It” on October 27 sold out within two hours.

  124. That is crazy that his video will be shown before MJ documentary. Absolutely INSANE! When does MJs movie come out? I never wanted to see it but now I think I do LOL..

  125. I’ve heard and seen all the videos, radio interviews, awards, written press people…all…I think…I dunno.

    TOO MUCH TO TAKE IN FEEL FAINT MAY PASS OUT.

    (((luv)))

    *falling down*

    because he can sang!!! That’s why!! and he has great personality.. :grin:

    Good with me.

    He is:
    smart
    extraordinarily talented
    handsome
    humble

    Yep, I think we have it covered. Thanks for confirming this (well, not the handsome part, lol), Rob Cavallo.

    ADAM VIDEO BEFORE THE MJ DOCUMENTARY? All I can say once again is:

    WOW.

  126. Q3 – “Technically ‘” I think that is classified as a WTF vocal range.”

    This is absolutely my favorite vocal range. I also guess this means that I will have to go see the MJ documentary. Can’t say I was planning on it.

    ET video interview of Adam at the AMA’s:

    I posted that another thread, Sunn, b/c I don’t know where to post stuff anymore.

    *dazed and confused*


  128. Adam Lambert music video to premiere before THIS IS IT!!!! http://tinyurl.com/ygtzumk @perezhilton @ryanseacrest @ewmichaelslezak @god

    Jim is so proud of himself ‘“ he rubs it in to perez, seacrest, slezak, and GOD! lol

    HA HA HA HA HA

    Okay, so, um, Cantiello is on board, hee hee.

  129. At some point will it not be available to view elsewhere. Not in the least bit interested in This is It and God knows there are at least two of us who would buy it.

  130. That is crazy that his video will be shown before MJ documentary. Absolutely INSANE! When does MJs movie come out? I never wanted to see it but now I think I do LOL..

    I wonder if this was the news that was supposed to be revealed on October 20 on a Dish of Salt – I hope not or she’s going to be heated. I can’t imagine anything else to be revealed. My goodness the Adam floodgates are open!

  131. ok I’m FIANLLY all caught up;)

    imma going to fo my bk reports and then *maybe* try to read comments.

    IT’S AN ADAM STORM!!!!!!!

    bye lol

  132. it’s kinda like adam will be ‘opening’  for MJ

    sweet!

  133. SO does this mean they wont release the TFM music video to MTV and VH1? Will they release it to Itunes?

    Questioning minds want to know these details.

  134. It seems as if Adam is dishing out the good news to various news outlets.
    AMA performance announcement to Ryan, TFM MV announcement to MTV, who is going to get the single release announcement??!! (I want to stalk, ahem, follow them)

  135. Recording the song was perhaps more of a challenge. Lambert explained that working with producer Rob Cavallo on the power ballad was fairly intense. “[He] pushed me to the limit,” Lambert said. “I sang for my life. It was quite a day of recording, but it turned out great.”

    I really like this. I think Cavallo can see Adam’s great potential… Cavallo really challenged him to do the best that he can.. He’s the second producer that said about finding Adam’s sounds.. the first was Red One. Hopefully that’s right..

  136. Q3:

    I don’t play piano so the octave references don’t mean much to me, so take this for what it’s worth. I understand that guitar actually sounds one octave lower than it’s written on sheet music. So, the range you are quoting of E2 through D6 actually sounds E1 through D5 if you were deciphering notes from a recording.

    I’ve got C#/Bb as the highest possible fretted note on a Fender Strat (with conventional tuning), so that would correspond to what the DDD boys have as Adams’s highest recorded note.

    It’s a well oiled PR and Marketing machine. RCA is doing a fantastic job promoting him. Every detail is calculated down to the last word. It’s almost like watching a presidential campaign.

    Just Awesome.

  138. I believe that having Adam’s video play before Michael Jackson’s “This is It” is the official PASSING OF THE TORCH.

    The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

  139. I believe that having Adam’s video play before Michael Jackson’s ‘This is It’  is the official PASSING OF THE TORCH.

    The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

    ooooo that really gave me goosebumps.

  140. I believe that having Adam’s video play before Michael Jackson’s ‘This is It’  is the official PASSING OF THE TORCH.

    The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

    ooooo that really gave me goosebumps.

    You know- I never wanted to say it out loud on a message board, but when MJ died, my best friend and I thought that back THEN. This really confirms it for me. That is NOT coincidental.

  141. This Is It, the documentary film about Michael Jackson’s ill-fated comeback tour, will premiere simultaneously in 15 cities across the globe on October 27 and 28.

    …also it will only be in theaters for 2 weeks.

  142. A glam rock, electro pop, glam robot invasion’“classic rock, but with a lot of pop and dance elements to it is how Cavallo describes the album

    Adam invasion has began. It is just gathering speed . RCA and the recording industry has fully understood what Adam is capable of. They are covering all bases to give Adam the full introduction . His sound will be everywhere. It will be hard to escape his music. This is exciting.

  143. “The ‘2012’ trailer that we put together with the [‘Time for Miracles’ music video] will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film,” Lambert revealed to MTV News, referring to a special trailer that will run before the upcoming documentary “Michael Jackson’s This Is It.”

    I am the first fantard in line BUT WAIT this line from the article says trailer with Music video..”referring to a special trailer that will run…”

    The word Special makees me think it might NOT be the actual Music Video for “Time for Miracles’ like we would seee on MTV or VH1, special is a scary word…

  144. Yeah, um, not so fast. I love Adam, but let’s not go crowning him the new king of pop music quite yet, ok? He still hasn’t released anything new. If he doesn’t become this enormous overnight success, proclaiming him the heir to Michael Jackson’s crown is going to seem pretty premature, if not silly.

  145. I think we are on the verge of seeing the best selling recording artist that has ever emerged from AI! VERY Exciting!

  146. proclaiming him the heir to Michael Jackson’s crown is going to seem pretty stupid.

    YEAH.. and is’nt it a self proclaimed title!! LOL
    Adam will have to announce himself the King of Pop ‘ ¦ snicker.. ummm I just don’t see that happening.. hahahhaha

  147. Reading the comments on these threads, I just flashed on Adam during Hollywood Week saying how he wants to take a song we’ve heard a hundred times before ‘ ¦ then that earnestness when he says, ‘I can.’ 

    It totally makes me want to choke up. He had to fight for this and he did. And man, the world is listening.

    Ohhh Susan.. now I’m in tears… I remembered this and remembered how he had to fight to get to top 36.. to make Simon believed that he can do it and he’s reluctant to believe Adam because of his theatrical background… I hated that memory… That’s God all doors opens widely for him now and yes the World is listening!!!!

  148. OK. I must have the Mayan calendar or something because everyone keeps saying Saturday the 18th…. does anyone’s calendar say October 18 is a Saturday?

    “Adam confirms Saturday the 18th as day of TFM release.”

    My new favorite quote:

    @Q3 I think that is classified as a WTF vocal range.

  149. Yeah, um, not so fast. I love Adam, but let’s not go crowning him the new king of pop music quite yet, ok?

    I think I’d prefer for Adam to actually put out some music before bestowing any new titles on him.

    I’m hoping for some good music. I hope Adam makes me want to buy his cd. I have concerns about Cavallo though. Hopefully, he’s as good as many seem to think. But, I’ve seen him produce entire cd’s filled with a whole lot of “nothing special”.

    So, I’m cautiously optimistic.

  150. You might want to wait till he actually sell a few cds before we crown him the “king of pop”. I heard Kanye West thinks he’s the heir to Michael’s crown. Maybe we need to let the public decide, even though we know who it should be.

  151. Very excited how things are going for Adam thusfar! I am cautiously optomistic. Expectations are so high for Adam! I think he’s up to the challenge! Encouraging words from May and others concerning TFM, appears to be right on….from the 29 seconds I’ve been lucky enough to hear so far! Many encouraging comments from people who are working with Adam on his upcoming cd. I loved how he looked today btw at the AMAs. That color brings out his eyes! Floving the hair too! He just speaks so well, it’s a pleasure to listen to him. Interesting that this was the first time since AI he and Paula have hooked up. Now I’m going to see the MJ movie!

  152. I believe that having Adam’s video play before Michael Jackson’s ‘This is It’  is the official PASSING OF THE TORCH.

    The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

    And all based on a snippet of a movie song!

    Uh yeah. Maybe Adam should actually produce something of his own first? And like maybe be successful with just one single, much less an album, much less being the heir to MJ. I find that kind of hyperbole to be, no offense, just a skoosh bit much to place on Adam’s shoulders. Okay, more than a skoosh. A lot more. And frankly he hasn’t done anything to deserve that kind of praise or expectations yet.

    I’m hoping for some good music. I hope Adam makes me want to buy his cd.

    Three good songs and I’ll be stoked about Adam’s album. And considering how crappy the economy is and really crappy the music market is, I don’t expect MJ numbers of selling. I will be thrilled and Adam would be lucky to have David Cook numbers. So yeah, I’m pretty stoked today a well, but I’d much rather have his expectations be in line with the cold hard reality of today’s market.

  153. Adam Lambert music video to premiere before THIS IS IT!!!!

    Holy Shit! Holy Moley! Or, just fucking wow!

  154. Yeah, um, not so fast. I love Adam, but let’s not go crowning him the new king of pop music quite yet, ok?

    I agree besides.. Adam is unique (just like Michael)….Just as I didn’t want him to be the new lead singer of Queen (and then be perceived as Freddy 2.0) I would not want him to be the “New King of Pop”( and be forever judged against Michael )… He deserves a new title….Czar of Glam, Ruler of Rock….What do you guys think?

  155. Dallas
    October 13, 2009 at 7:33 pm

  156. or maybe Glam Rock Czar?

    (happy feet…singing, dancing, humming TfM….)

  157. ROCK GOD KING OF POP ANY WAY YOU WANT TO SAY IT. IT’S ADAM LAMBERT

  158. @rblaha1234

    You make me want to stand up and say “HALLELUJAH BROTHERS!!”

  159. Adam: “Recording the song was perhaps more of a challenge. Lambert explained that working with producer Rob Cavallo on the power ballad was fairly intense. “[He] pushed me to the limit,” Lambert said. “I sang for my life. It was quite a day of recording, but it turned out great.” Cavallo and Lambert went on to work together on several tracks that might end up on Lambert’s CD come November 24. (Cavallo spilled three song titles to Yahoo! Music on Tuesday, including “Suburban Decay,” “Winners” and “Music Again.”)”

    Sunn, that is the most interesting quote in the MTV article to me. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard Adam say he’s been pushed to the limit, vocally, ever. It also explains why Cavallo has so much respect for Adam’s voice– he knows exactly what it can do.

  160. I think of Adam singing “A Change is Going to Come” and the glory notes from that song with him pusing himself…can’t wait to hear what he is referring to with TfM with Rob pusing him…..goosebumps.

  161. He sure had a lot of nice things to say about Adam. That makes me happy. I’m thrilled for Adam and I can’t wait to hear Adam’s cd. I’m sure it will be unique.

  162. new tweet from adam!

    adamlambert Workin w Howard Benson tonight!!!! This album is gonna be Siiiiiiiiiiiick

  163. Adam does not need any other title , just ADAM LAMBERT.
    It looks like he is staying true to being ADAM LAMBERT.
    Great times !
    Lindsey is great getting us this interview. If Lindsey is lurking here, my eternal kudos to you fierce one.

  164. Adam does not need any other title, just ADAM LAMBERT.

    Completely agree.

  165. I cannot believe, honestly, that Cavallo was SO EXCITED about working with Adam. I mean, how many producers are THIS excited about working with an artist? He couldn’t stop raving. I am stunned (in a *good* way).

    Just Adam’s range alone is something very special. How often does that come along in pop, especially in male form? Even when you have just a strong three-octave range, fellow singers and musicians tend to be kind of awestruck, and he’s got four full octaves and counting, *plus* he has great senses of rhythm and pitch, can access the whole huge huge range without exhibiting any breaks, sing strong high low and middle, bring chest voice to an insanely high point, sing long passages in falsetto, etc. etc. etc. To have both his range and his control of the range is just incredible. Then when you add somebody with performance chops, imagination and ideas, a good work ethic, skill and talent at being *expressive* with that voice, great diction so you understand every word he says, and a fun-to-be-with personality you have something that comes along about once in a lifetime, if you’re really really lucky.

    I don’t think that even all that guarantees success — you hvae to produce something that the times will embrace.

    But working with Adam’s instrument has to be a lot of fun for producers who like vocals.

  166. All this Adam news makes me want to say’ ¦..’It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life’ ¦..and I’m feelin’ ¦’ ¦Goooooooood!!!!’ 

    Loving it. I like it when Adam fans burst into song. We can sing a virtual duet.

    Adam is amazing. I never thought that I would enjoy a storm so much.

  167. I heard Kanye West thinks he’s the heir to Michael’s crown.

    ugh. I hope not.

  168. I thought he should title his album

    A D A M

    But, b/c Kris’s is KRIS ALLEN (and b/c this was a really corny idea on my part, anyway), I think it might be one of the Rob Cavallo titles he mentioned today! (Or Strut, which he could certainly do.) Seems like it would be from one of his songs. When do we get to see the COVER PHOTO? (Maybe next week…after they pick a name for the album. ;))

    How about Glam Rock Guru?

    This strategy worked out very well for Obama, BTW. Strategy is everything. It worked for Adam on Idol and it seems to be working out just fine for RCA/Adam, too. You just need the right person, and we’ve found it.

    Nothing from Laura Saltzman yet, I guess. Still waiting for Lyndsey’s interview. You *know* she wants one in the worst way.

    I like that. Or “Strut”. Not super loving the other suggestions like glam rock this/that…/prince of rock…. / blah blah. Adam is too original for that. And…I don’t think he should be put in a box/title anyway.

  173. how come i got a feeling that adam’s music will sound more like blake lewis’? i hope w/ his amazing vocals, i will like it.

  174. how come i got a feeling that adam’s music will sound more like blake lewis’? i hope w/ his amazing vocals, i will like it.

    Well that’s random. Don’t get the comment. Smile. I don’t think I’ve heard Adam beat-box.

  175. All I have to say is “Hurry up with anything from ADAM please!!!”
    The suspense is killing me!!

  176. I think is was said before but I like EVERY INCH ADAM for the title of his album.

  177. Wow, the Adam Storm has begun and tonight an actual rain storm has arrived here in L.A. Ironic or what? It as taken me all afternoon and tonight to catch up with all the news and thread! Whew! Even bought my ticket to the AMAs. What a day in the life of Adam Lambert and his fans!

  178. “Winners” — I could see this working as a catchy dance song. I suspect it’s the sort of title that sounds better with a song behind it, like TFM. It could also be a ballad… about how we’re all winners in the end… but, how about not.

    “Music Again” — Hmm. What would this be? A “we’re finally hearing good quality music again on the radio” celebration? Or “DJ play that music again”? Or like a getting over a breakup song. I’m finally over him, and can hear the music again.

    “Suburban Decay”– This. Could be interesting. Please be interesting and edgy, Suburban Decay.

  179. Ooh, I’ll play. Maybe “Winners” is like “We are the Champions.”

    And “Music Again” is like Madonna’s “Music” – a dance song.

    “Suburban Decay” – no idea. It’s a mouthful. Maybe the emotional ballad about vulnerability. Though Adam’s been quoted several times that he doesn’t like emo lyrics (what was MW then?) so maybe it’s an anthem rock song?

  180. Though Adam’s been quoted several times that he doesn’t like emo lyrics (what was MW then?)

    I think Adam was referring to the type of “overwrought” emo lyrics. He is too sunny for overwrought lyrics.

  181. ” Maybe we need to let the public decide, even though we know who it should be.”

    We are the public!!!! One of the first thoughts that crossed my brain after I mourned for MJ’s death was…”It’s OK Michael, your heir apparent has safely arrived.” “I believe you will aprove.”

    So why all the hesitation? Fear of looking silly? So let the brave commit!
    Putting Adams video for TFM in front of MJ’s “This Is It” show is marvelous marketing, and ,IMO, implicit agreement of a foregone conclusion!!
    This is my first and ,probably, only go round as a Fan girl, as I just hope to make it through to hear his initial single and and his first album. No,
    I’ll challenge myself to to see him with his first grammy nomination.!!!
    That is hope on the fly.
    So I don’t care what you call him, but,” HE IS THE ONE”.

  182. Fun to see all the contributions to providing a name for his Album.
    I just really hope they don’t just self title it,…that is such a bore, as they have done that for all the idols. So, lets raise the bar for Adam.
    Hmm….A D A M Fraternizes with Robots
    Robot Rock, Electro Pop
    Lambert Landed
    came to sing
    Fierce
    love affair with a mike
    The mic, The man and The Singer

    L A M B E R T Rising Up A D A M
    Invasion
    classic Robot POP!

    OK, I give up……time to find slumber!!!!!!!!!

  183. For his album cover and title – it will probably have something to do with his name ADAM . They might even do a take on Michaelangelo’s painting – The Creation of Adam – that fresco at the Sistine Chapel.

    The Creation of Adam – might work as an Album title. They can show his metamorphosis into a glam rock star.

  184. Ooh, I’ll play. Maybe ‘Winners’  is like ‘We are the Champions.’ 

    And ‘Music Again’  is like Madonna’s ‘Music’  ‘“ a dance song.

    ‘Suburban Decay’  ‘“ no idea. It’s a mouthful. Maybe the emotional ballad about vulnerability. Though Adam’s been quoted several times that he doesn’t like emo lyrics (what was MW then?) so maybe it’s an anthem rock song?

    ITA wrt “Winners” and “Music Again” – latter definitely has a dance vibe going for it – a party, pop track, my guess – solid hooks and beats, etc.

    “Suburban Decay” – my guess is edgy rock, veering into Green Day territory (which I think was brought up in the interview too). I’m guessing it won’t be a slower song, though.

  185. glam rock, electro pop, glam robot invasion’“classic rock, but with a lot of pop and dance elements to it is how Cavallo describes the album. He says his songs have the rock element, but with something new.

    “something new” LOL….my favorite over-used phrase when describing a debut album. im just hoping its has elements of pop/dance without being euro trashy. and a rock vibe thats more Emo less Bon Jovi (aka Times of Miracles).

  186. ‘something new’  LOL’ ¦.my favorite over-used phrase when describing a debut album. im just hoping its has elements of pop/dance without being euro trashy. and a rock vibe thats more Emo less Bon Jovi (aka Times of Miracles).

    I really get no Bon Jovi from the small snippet of TFM that I’ve heard. What Bon Jovi song would you compare the snippet to? Aerosmith, maybe. I agree, I’m waiting to hear the actual album. I thought I would be getting something new from the American Idol last year and I got the same-old, same-old. Oh well, I guess the new for me will have to be Adam’s unique voice.

  187. This thread is about to die but just wanted to say about the ‘something new’ comments: Redone said he wanted to help Adam find his sound and Cavallo said that it is Adam’s sound. How many sounds are there under the sun? Johnny Cash was said to have his own sound. I think Cindy kind of hits on it with Adam’s unique voice. That is ultimately part of the sound of an artist (right, duh?, my duh, not your duh) My guess is that he glam rock songs will have “his” sound. How long has it been since anyone has done glam rock? A while, so it could be very new to a lot of people.
