PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Idolator – Adam Lambert Reveals “Never Close Our Eyes” Single Cover “Adam Lambert‘s profile — and oversized circle frame glasses — make an appearance on the cover art for “Never Close Our Eyes”, the second single off his sophomore album Trespassing (May 15). Glambert tweeted out the single cover of his Bruno Mars-penned tune today. For those hoping for something a bit more upbeat than “Better Than I Know Myself”, don’t be dismayed by the low-key acoustic performance Adam delivered last month: the studio recording is absolutely bangin’.”
PopCrush – ADAM LAMBERT REVEALS ARTWORK FOR SECOND ‘TRESPASSING’ SINGLE “The always stylish singer looks typically and futuristically fashionable, with his collar up and a pair of round sunglasses. His signature inky black coif is spiky and effortlessly bedheaded. He gives off a bit of a David Bowie / nu wave look with this shot, too.”
Gather – Does Adam Lambert’s ‘Aftermath’ Empower You to Fight Bullying? “The movie “BULLY” is opening on Friday and they are asking people to speak up through music by voting for songs related to the issue on Twitter. They recently tweeted, “What song empowers YOU to take a stand against bullying? Nominate a song for the official #BullyList!” On Monday they tweeted again, saying that Destiny Underwood, Kris Allen, and Adam Lambert were taking the lead.”
CarterMatt – Adam Lambert’s second single from ‘Trespassing’ — ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ ““Eyes” is the song co-written by Bruno Mars, and it is a song that works both as an uptempo dance track as well as a pretty sweet acoustic jam…We really weren’t sure what song Adam was going to pick as his next single (his performance of “Trespassing” at the NewNowNext Awards had us leaning in that direction), but the song clearly has a strong radio hook, and the star power behind it may also help for promotional purposes in the all-important Top 40 Radio chart.”
The Hollywood Reporter – Adam Lambert Performing Four Shows With Queen This Summer “”We’re really excited about it,” Taylor says. “Adam… of course he has this unbelievable range, likeFreddie (Mercury) had range. Adam can really cover it. He’s an extraordinary singer and a real talent. I feel he fits into our sort of theatricality.” As for doing more with Lambert, Taylor says that “we’re just going to see what happens, how well it goes, how we get on.” He does acknowledge, however, that he and May have been approached to be part of the Summer Olympics closing ceremonies in London but adds that “I don’t think we’re meant to say too much about it yet.””
