Producer RedOne on Adam Lambert: “It has to be rock, but with an interesting dance angle”

News broke this morning that Lady Gaga producer, RedOne, spent time recording in the studio with Adam Lambert over the weekend.

Now, the LA Times, speaks exclusively with busy producer, who revealed some details about what we might expect from his work with Adam. Sounds like he’s taking him into a dance/pop direction, but with a heavy rock influence.

…I want to go rock — David Bowie and Queen, but make it more easy for people to get, the producer said of his vision for Lambert. …It has to be rock, but with an interesting dance angle to it, you know? Youll like it.

RedOne said he hopes to record at least six songs with Lambert, but that doesnt guarantee that they’ll all make Lambert RCA debut (a Lambert representative was unable to be reached prior to posting). An …Idol finalist comes equipped with a built-in fan base, and RedOne said he eager to play with people expectations.

…You know what I like about him? He fresh, said RedOne. …You can go almost whatever direction with him. People know him from being on ‹American Idol, singing other people songs, but you can take him in a new direction, and this will be the first time you hear Adam Lambert with his signature. My goal is to get his signature out from him to the world.

The busy producer also had some weekend studio time scheduled with the Backstreet Boys, and is planning to head out on the road for two weeks with Lady Gaga on her European tour to begin work on the follow-up to The Fame.
