He’s already referred to it as his “dream” album and as Adam Lambert will actually be calling his sophomore album: Trespassing.
That’s according to a press release sent out by his label, RCA, which not only announced the title of Lambert’s follow-up to For Your Entertainment but revealed that the much-delayed disc would finally be hitting stores on March 20. The news came one day after Lambert unveiled a snippet of the album’s first single, “Better Than I Know Myself.”
Lambert serves as executive producer on the new album, which he describes as “an exciting journey through the past two years of my life. It’s been a transformative period and I really wanted to make music from what I’ve experienced. All these songs honestly explore the ups and downs of my reality.”
He also co-wrote most of the record, collaborating with a (seriously) loaded roster of talented hitmakers that includes Dr. Luke, Bruno Mars, Pharrell Williams, Benny Blanco, Nile Rodgers and Claude Kelly.
And while his Glamberts will still have to wait until March to hear Trespassing, the simple fact that there’s an actual release date for the album is probably good enough for now, given that for months it looked like the album might not come out at all. In November, Lambert spoke to The Advocate about the delays that had beset the project, which included some, uh, issues with RCA and a whole lot of tinkering to make his new songs right.
“I don’t know how other artists do it, but for this project, I’m adopting the mentality of ‘just keep writing and keep recording as much as possible,’ ” he said. “And then when we know that we’re ready to decide which tracks are going to be on the album, we’ll look at everything and narrow it down.”
