Hi Fi CEO Says Adam Lambert Stands to Make “A Ton of Money” from Recordings, There’s Enough Material for a Second Album

In a new interview with Reuters, Hi Fi Recordings CEO John Hecker defends the controversial release of pre-Idol music from Idol-runner up Adam Lambert.

Hecker swears Adam stands to earn generous royalties from the sale of the recordings.

Hecker denied some fans’ assertions that Lambert was being ripped off, saying the singer stands to make “a ton of money” through a royalties arrangement commensurate with deals for major artists. Lambert will not only receive songwriting royalties, but he also co-owns the copyrights with Wilshire, Hecker said.

Adam wrote 9 of the 11 songs from the upcoming album, On With The Show, working mostly with Madonna’s guitarist–and Citizen Vein bandmate–Monte Pittman, says Hecker

And, there’s more music in the vault:

But wait, there’s more. Hecker said the recording sessions yielded enough material for a second album, which will also see the light of day eventually,

A second album full of Adam Lambert demos. Yippee.

The first single, “Want” was released to iTunes today.
