Singer Adam Lambert on Monday performed music from his sophomore album Trespassing on Good Morning America.

Lambert discussed Trespassing, which lands on store shelves Tuesday, before performing.

“I just wanted to get back down to what I loved about music. And take my time and write it from a place where I was at home, hanging out with friends, going out, celebrating birthdays, you know, being with family. That's what music is all about – a celebration.”

“And being back in like a normal life really helped inspire me.”

“It hasn't been normal for you since American Idol,” host Robin Roberts said. “A lot has come your way and all well deserved.”

When Roberts asked about the sound of Trespassing, Lambert answered: “I think funk is something that's universal. You know, I think funk exists now, today on the radio with dance music. It's a more modernized version, but if you go back to the classics, you know, disco and funk, it's timeless. And so I really pulled a lot from that because I feel that anybody, no matter who you are, no matter how old you are, girl, guy, American, if you're international I think everybody loves a good beat.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.
