Adam Lambert has described his upcoming
album, The Original High, as exploring the heartaches,
triumphs and thrills that he and his friends are going through.
Ghost Town, the album's first
single, was released last month.
“I think lyrically what I like about
it is that I'm talking about things in Ghost Town that are,
you know, kind of me realizing maybe I've gotten a little bit jaded,
maybe I'm questioning if I'm going to be able to fall in love again,
what is this world giving to me?” he told MTV
News. “But it's not completely hopeless, because there is that
dance beat and it's a great opening statement for the album because I
go into further detail on the other songs about these feelings.”
Lambert added that the album is about
what he and his friends in Los Angeles are going through.
“I kind of started trying to observe
how my friends and I out here in LA, what we had in common, what we
were going through, what kind of heartaches and what kind of triumphs
and what kind of thrills we all wanted…” Lambert said. “There
are so many ways in which we are all different. We have different
races and genders and religions and sexual orientations, but at the
heart of it, a lot of us are looking for the same things and getting
hurt in the same way and that's what I like about the album.”
