Out singer Adam Lambert on Monday
revealed the cover artwork for his latest studio album The
Lambert tweeted the cover image to his
more than 2.4 million followers.
Ghost Town, the first single
from The Original High, will be released Tuesday.
In a recent HungerTV.com interview,
Lambert described the new album as having “an overall bittersweet
feel to it.”
“This album was executive produced by
Max Martin and Shellback and they helped me keep a very cohesive
sound and mood throughout,” Lambert
said. “Sonically it feels more contemporary than my previous
material. It’s definitely pop but not bubblegum. We have avoided
camp and theatrics and have favoured a darker, more grounded vibe,
and at the same time, it will make you dance! Lyrically, it's very
very personal, the album has an overall bittersweet feel to it.
Vocally, I think it's my most tasteful, sophisticated work to date.
With Max’s guidance, I approached a lot of it with more restraint
than in the past. Instead of being overly specific, most of the
songs are more esoteric and so they're open to interpretation. I'm
curious to hear about the individual meaning that people find in the
songs dependent on their own situation.”
Ghost Town's hook “will worm
its way into your ears after the first listen,” he added.
