Adam Lambert Taking Time Writing 'Honest' Follow-Up

'American Idol' runner-up predicts sophomore LP's first single will hit airwaves in late summer.

Glamberts rejoice! Adam Lambert is working on his next album, and he's ready to get personal. In an effort to avoid an unfortunate sophomore slump, the singer is taking his time making the follow-up to his debut, For Your Entertainment, completely sincere. Speaking with MTV News at the season-three premiere of "RuPaul's Drag Race" in Los Angeles, the "American Idol" runner-up dished a few details about the LP.

"I'm in talks, so it's all kind of being conceptualized right now, and what we're hoping for is maybe by the fall," Lambert said of the project's progression. "So, I'm going to take my time and really write the most personal songs, the most powerful songs. I really want it to be something that's really honest and real."

But before the LP drops, the "Idol" alum predicts the project's lead single will hit airwaves in late summer. The 28-year-old singer revealed that the album will be in tune with the rock/pop sound of his debut, but with a bit of a twist.

"I'm starting to talk to some writers and come up with some ideas, and I'll be writing a lot of it myself," he told "It's going to be very pop, very rock, maybe even a little dark."

Fans got a taste of some new-ish material from the entertainer when Lambert dropped a five-song EP in December. "Acoustic Live!" included stripped-down versions of the singer's For Your Entertainment hits, including "Whataya Want From Me."
