Adam Lambert Daily Update – April 26, 2012
THE SLOW REVEAL..
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Let’s Talk About Glambert Provocative blog post. “Outspoken, high-spirited, courageous & daring, Adam Lambert stands far apart from other POP acts who lack temerity & personality. Guided by his gift & a true moral compass, Adam delivers passionate & provocative performances other singers could only dream of. Yet, Adam is consistently under-appreciated. Why?”
USA Today – ‘Idol’ downloads: Clarkson, Underwood, Lambert “Adam Lambert’s new single, Never Close Our Eyes, debuts this week with 29,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.”
Gather – Are Queen and Adam Lambert Adding a Concert in Poland? “Yesterday, Polish publication Gazeta Wroclawska reported that Queen, with Adam Lambert as lead singer, will perform in Poland as part of a rock festival in Wroclaw on July 7. The official announcement could come soon, as another Polish source has said today that there will be a news conference on Thursday and Friday to discuss future events at the Wroclaw Stadium. Although nothing has been formally announced, even Sony Music Poland is hinting about the chance of a concert. Today they tweeted, “Glamberts! Officially, we can not confirm anything, but you should definitely have a reason to be happy;)””
Northwest Herald – Preview Adam Lambert’s new album, ‘Trespassing’ “‘Shady’ sounds like Maroon 5 with more edge, while ‘Kickin’ In’ is an ode to a night out — and the booze and questionable decisions that comes with it. While ‘Naked Love’ has sexy lyrics, it’s still pure radio-friendly pop with a soaring chorus and head-bopping beat…”
From FYE via @NorthernSpirt – For fans who are feeling anxious about news that “Never Close Our Eyes” has an add date for radio release of May 29th:
anonymous: this seems to indicate a long term strategy, rather than timing everything happening all at once, they’re planning for tv and print promo and early adopters on radio (and stans ofc) to drive the initial album purchases, and then the radioplay to hopefully build once that’s over to sustain sales while he’s bizzy doing international promo and gigs with queen
chartnonny: This is exactly what it means. It’s really good news. It means that they are invested enough to take time to build the singles. It’s what labels do for acts that they see as long-term investments. If they didn’t care, the song would have just been tossed out there or given an early adds date and then left to fend for itself.
I would put money on this being the strategy that they have had planned for a while, what with Adam talking about them working several singles to radio and not touring just yet.
@chartnonny also said this on twitter: I’m good with it. It shows they have long-term investment in making the singles work. He also has 6 big market radio concerts in the weeks immediately before it which are a great lead in to official adds date. A song can’t build momentum for an album release in a week or two. It takes even the biggest hits far longer than that to climb the charts. This adds date is really not a negative thing in the least.
Thanks to @annehedonia for digging this up! @MyNameisEric delivered our Eye of Horus decal to the band back at Costa Mesa in 2010. You can get your at our store!!
