About this deal

Lambert: Well it's interesting because I felt like there were times where I was battling with myself between following my instincts and having my own integrity and then trying to do something that I thought other people would like and pop music is so much about appealing to the masses. The properly established American Idol alumnus – and Queen showstopper – does it with flair in High Drama, an album of cover songs that strikes a delicate balance between the familiar and the truly novel. Compare that with Lambert’s twist on SIA’s “Chandelier,” which is a little closer to the original but takes things in a more alternative post-grunge direction.

I heard, because I know Ilsey quite well, so I heard the original and I just thought, "Oh, this is so beautiful. It’s a lot of rock music, a lot of music from the ‘70s, but the process of putting a musical together is a longer timeline. So look at where we've come since the late '90's and look at all of the amazing stories that are being told and the different types of people that are being highlighted, both fictional characters and us real life people that are also in the arts, in the music industry.More than 15 years ago, David Archuleta became a national celebrity thanks to his time on American Idol. David Archuleta Has a Memoir in the Works David Archuleta, who rose to stardom 15 years ago thanks to "American Idol," is now penning his memoir for HarperCollins. A showman with stellar performance skills, there are few performers with a vocal range like Adam Lambert and it’s clear he knows his instrument well and has expertly mastered the tracks on ‘High Drama’ to really make them his own and has once again showcased his astonishing vocal prowess with this energetic, vivid and mesmerising collection of songs. Currently, Lambert is working on writing a musical, which will feature original songs from a stellar lineup of collaborators. Lambert’s musical theatre background is evident in Billie Eilish’s ‘Getting Older’ which has him reflecting on the universal fear of ageing and gives a far-reaching emotional performance.

Ordinary World" goes back to the well of his "Mad World" breakthrough on American Idol, finding the deeper pathos in the brittle songwriting of the 80s. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. The singer turns back the clock for his spin on Dinah Washington’s “Mad About A Boy,” flipping it into a suave theme. The former trumps the latter since it is the Lambert one is after when purchasing a Lambert record – so excuse him when it's overdone. An insightful look into Lambert's taste and influences as an artist, the collection covers a wide array of tracks, from Lana Del Rey's "West Coast" and Duran Duran's "Ordinary World" to the jazz standard, "Mad About The Boy" and Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand The Rain.However, I was influenced by the great rendition of the single Holding Out For a Hero to give it a shot. He then transforms Kings of Leon’s “Sex On Fire” to a bouncy and upbeat bass-driven alt-pop song that starts quiet and sensual before crescendoing into a fun, almost campy, climax.

Starring Jacob Elordi as Bobby, a hitchhiking serial killer in the summer of 1964, and Zachary Quinto as Jim, the unassuming animal trainer who picks him up by the side of a road in Death Valley, the film does bear traces of latent, off-key zaniness, especially whenever co-star Spanky, a chimpanzee, enters the picture. As Lambert sings, "History, it pains me, and it chains me / 'Cause I'm mad about the boy," champions of freedom and acceptance become one, timeless – the best thing about good covers. I think identity politics are tricky and complicated, but what makes the arts so important is that we can really help influence pop culture.

Adam Lambert: Absolutely, at the BMG party, I got to see some of the other acts that are signed to the label, which was exciting. The result of High Drama is that no song is by mistake there, and no drum fill, guitar solo, or throbbing bass lacks curation for a new sonic personality of a classic. The idea of a former American Idol contestant releasing a covers album is so on-the-nose that it’s not hard to see why Adam Lambert once openly laughed off the idea. High Drama is the fifth studio album and first cover album by Adam Lambert, released on February 24, 2023. As unexpected as the album was and as odd as it may have sounded on paper, it is obvious in retrospect what a good fit it was.

This genre-spanning collection of reimagined covers takes some of Adam’s favourite songs by artists like Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey, Bonnie Tyler, Sia, Duran Duran and Kings Of Leon to a different dimension thanks to the classic ‘Adam Lambert’ treatment. I think ones that I haven't performed live yet that I know are going to be something are "West Coast" by Lana Del Rey our arrangement of it it's pretty hardcore.And I think the other mission on this album was not only to kind of create this rock star sonic atmosphere, but hopefully I'm also sharing my voice with people. Jacob Elordi Gets Into Monkey Business in ‘He Went That Way’ The bland noir-ish thriller "He Went That Way" fumbles its intriguing premise and casting of "It" boy Jacob Elordi. An experienced musician as Lambert is working with top producers such as Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves, Carly Rae Jepsen), Andrew Wells (Halsey, OneRepublic), and more to create a record that is beyond a covers album: it is an experienced display of composition, and how to reframe music to new audiences. Renowned for re-imagining songs from American Idol to his stirring viral hit with Cher's "Believe", Adam Lambert - the Grammy-nominated pop icon, LGBTQ trailblazer and Queen frontman - brings you High Drama, a wonderfully diverse collection of covers with a twist, held together by Adam’s once-in-a-generation voice and trademark flair.
