Lady Gaga gave Adam Lambert “Fever” — the duo hooked up in the studio to record the Gaga-penned track for Lambert’s album, For Your Entertainment. And for the “American Idol” alum, it wasn’t just another session in the studio.
“Gaga! Working in the studio with Gaga was a trip,” Lambert told MTV News about the collaboration . “The Haus of Gaga came in at the end to say hi. She was just there. We were working with her and Jeff Bhasker and we recorded the song, and she egged me on and it was crazy.”
The retro-sounding disco tune definitely has a Scissor Sisters vibe to it, a revelation Lambert came to after he listened to the track when they were finished. “That was kind of like an afterthought,” he said. “Once I heard it back I was like, ’God, that sounds like a Scissor Sisters song.’ It’s disco.”
Lambert revealed that while recording the song, on which he sings such provocative lyrics as “Oh baby, your light’s on/ But your mom’s not home/ I’m sick of laying down alone/ With this fever,” the group worked in a kind of party atmosphere. “There might have been some libations passed around, maybe,” he laughed. “That’s real rock and roll.”
Lambert hasn’t ruled out one day possibly hitting the road with the pop superstar, who recently talked about how much she liked working with him on the song.
“If she’d have me, yeah — she’s amazing,” he said. “I have no clue [when that would happen]. I have not heard anything about that. I think she’s going off solo right now. I think she’s pretty amazing. I want to be at her show,” Lambert gushed.
