Adam Lambert has released his latest cover, “Getting Older.”

Produced by Tommy English, the American Idol alum and Queen frontman writes in an email to his fans: “I’m counting down the days until you get to hear my new album, High Drama. In the meantime, you can listen to my glam rendition of Billie Eilish’s Getting Older. This is one of my favorite Billie tracks and I’m honored to put my own spin on it.”

High Drama is a diverse collection of covers with a twist, held together by Adam’s once-in-a-generation voice and trademark flair. The set is due out on February 24.

In a recent interview with Yahoo Music, Adam shared about his decision to put out an album of covers: ““The idea came up to do an album of covers, and I haven’t done that before. I’ve done that on Idol, obviously… and Queen is essentially sort of a covers situation, even though I’m in the band. It was like a real nice challenge to go, ‘OK, let’s find songs’ — some are obscure, some are new, some are really well-known — ‘that we think are cool, and flip them and make them sound entirely different if we can.’”

“Getting Older” follows previously released singles Noel Coward’s “Mad About The Boy,” Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” and Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero” from High Drama, released via his new deal with BMG.

“It’s a fun challenge to figure out a way of doing a 180 with a song,” he explains. “This album is a foray into my world. Over the past decade, I’ve explored a few different areas and sounds and energies, and I feel like part of this new chapter in my career is me being really clear on who I am, and what I am, and what I’m not. I think that’s all coming out in these tracks.
