NEVER CLOSE OUR EYES (BEHIND THE SCENES)

Just as the video for “Better Than I Know Myself” was a major advance artistically for Adam, this new video promises to be another quantum leap in sophistication. And the image of Adam on his knees scrubbing the floor – it’s so incongruously HOT. Go figure.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

NEW VIDEO TEASER

Much Music – WATCH A TEASER VIDEO FOR ADAM LAMBERT’S NEVER CLOSE OUR EYES “In the teaser clip, Adam is seen running through halls with a group of friends in what looks like an attempt to avoid uniformed soldiers who are chasing the group. Cameras follow the ‘rebels’ as they move through hallways, dressed in t-shirts and running shoes. Lambert’s Brave New World-theme video even includes the singer in a machine that looks like it’s going to scan his retina’s for easy tracking by the soldiers. Thirty seconds in and I’m already hooked on this video!”

ADAM ON NPR
@nprwatc: Wow, overwhelmed by all the people who loved @nprguyraz‘s chat with @adamlambert! Too many to thank individually, so THANK YOU all!

@NPRWest: Hear @adamlambert on @nprwatc this Saturday, talking to @nprguyraz about his new album “Trespassing.”

NPR – Adam Lambert: ‘I Want To Sing It Big’ (PODCAST)  “I think, for the majority of my twenties, I was always so concerned with what I didn’t have, or what I still wanted,” Lambert tells NPR’s Guy Raz. “It was always about a chase and going after something. This year I’ve focused more on being thankful for what I already have — being content with what I’ve already accomplished, or who is already in my life, not what I’ve yet to find or get.” NPR features “Never Close Our Eyes” and “Outlaws of Love”.

MAKING HISTORY

@adamlambert: Excited to see the official Billboard 200 when it comes out tomorrow! 😉

PressParty – Adam Lambert tops chart and makes history in the USA with ‘Trespassing’ “The dreaded sophomore slump is something Lambert won’t have to contend with as he is is currently leading the chart with his new record, and this impressive feat has made him the first openly gay recording artist to achieve a No.1 album in America.”

Hits Daily Double ADAM LAMBERT IDOLS AT #1 “You don’t necessarily have to win American Idol to have a successful pop music career. Adam Lambert, who finished second in the eighth season of the Fox music competition to champion Kris Allen, sees his sophomore 19/RCA album, Trespassing, debut at #1 on this week’s HITS chart, selling nearly 78k.”

@tuke18: My sign for.Adam!!! 🙂

GOING FOR NUMBER ONE

Fans were hard at work this past week, exhorting music lovers to buy “Trespassing” and donating copies to friends and even charity. Here’s what’s been happening, along with useful info from Billboard about which sales get counted.

HitFix – Adam Lambert trespasses into the top spot on the Billboard 200  “Adam Lambert will likely land his first No. 1 album next week as “Trespassing” enters at the top spot on the Billboard 200.” As of the time of reporting, Adam had a nice 10,000 unit lead over Adele.

Gather – Adam Lambert Fans Promote Album and Help Charity “Adam Lambert fans are hoping that his new album Trespassing will début at #1 on Billboard this week and they are doing everything they can to make that happen. Adam himself is also urging fans to buy the album. This morning he tweeted“Keep Pushin Glamily!! Let’s get it back to #1 on iTunes! #Trespassing” Many fans feel that the least they can do to thank him for providing such amazingmusic is to help him reach his début goal of #1. Even if you already bought the album for yourself, there are many opportunities to gift it someone in need. In fact, many are offering to “gift” the album to those that cannot afford it. Some fans have set up a “Trespassing Gifting Post” where people can offer to buy the album for others, or go there to find a donor for themselves.”

Billboard Q&A on whether multiple purchases count towards chart sales “Buying a track two times would count as two sales…However, if you were to buy a track, let’s say, oh, 800 times, that would be considered an anomaly and would not count. So it’s not possible to rig the charts by buying the same track an exorbitant amount of times. The same has always been true of physical records as well.”

Adam knows how to pick ’em!! The Dream Downtown hotel is one of Manhattan’s newest happening hotels, located in our favorite part of town between Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. Dream on…

New York Post – Follow the fleet “Katy Perry was ready to party with Adam Lambert after serenading the troops Wednesday night. The singer, wearing an American flag dress, gave a performance for sailors at Pier 9 in Brooklyn as part of Fleet Week, and even pulled one lucky uniformed cadet onstage for a kiss. Later, Perry went to the Dream Downtown to meet Lambert at a table at upstairs lounge PH-D, where the two partied until 3:30 a.m. While there, Perry jumped in the DJ booth to request Rihanna songs.”

Maybe he got the idea when Enrique Iglesias invited a young boy up onto the stage at the KISS Concert in Boston. Adam invited a “crazy ass bitch” fan up, and she proceeded to.. well, you can see it around 14:00 in the video below. Our advice to Adam: Stick to children.

Our KISS Concert Boston Post  – With full Ustream cap video from @GaleChester. Will be updating with new photos and videos as they come in.

KISS108 Backstage interview w DJ Matty

Adam Lambert Obsession – KISS 108 Concert 2012 “I think Trespassing is one of the most enjoyable songs performed live and it’s absolutely fantastic to see such a huge crowd getting into it and clapping along. Kickin’ In is a rocking version with great funk guitar. I’m not sure the rock vibe works as well as the album version. Adam does some fun shuffly dancing and does lots of ad-libbing with his voice over the repetitive part towards the end…”

Sun Chronicle REVIEW: Lambert, Iglesias fuel revived Kiss Concert “With headliners such as the enigmatic and crowd pleasing Enrique Iglesias and Adam Lambert, it’s no wonder fans were flocking to the annual radio station event. Enrique had one of the most lively performances of the night, complete with confetti, lots of swagger and an upbeat personality. He even revisited his smash hit “Hero” from 2001, and thrilled fans when he brought a 10-year-old boy on stage with him to dance and sing. Adam Lambert also gave a great performance and showed the crowd why he made it past his “American Idol” stint and became a superstar”

TRESPASSING REVIEWS

EMusic – Adam Lambert, Trespassing (Deluxe Version) 5-stars. “Expressing his individual inner self in a pop machine designed to flaunt the interchangeably anonymous is the challenge he faces on Trespassing, the follow-up to his 2009 debut For Your Entertainment. That’s also the subtext of the Pharrrell Williams-collaborated title track, which examines obstacles put in the path of outsiders whose destiny is the mainstream. Kindred infiltrators like Bruno Mars, Nile Rodgers and Sam Sparro help Lambert create a masculine, more aggressive variant on the techno-pop that’s typically a girl’s game. His virile voice doesn’t need all the processing it undergoes in “Never Close Our Eyes” and other singles, but the sonic fortification affirms Lambert can be as be as vocally androgynous as he wants to be and still sound Top 40-friendly. Nevertheless, it’s the slower, more sensual cuts like “Broken English” and “Outlaws of Love” that best showcase his inimitable wail.”

PopQuiz – Adam Lambert, “Trespassing” “He’s the new Prince of Pop. Infusing pop with funk, rock and three-snaps-in-a-Z-formation, this is the Adam that we’ve been waiting for. And while his debut, For Your Entertainment, was solid, this new LP is like a whole new ballgame.”

Evansville Courier & Press – Tuned In: Adam Lambert’s often-lackluster ‘Trespassing’ … More “…Lambert proves himself to be deeply entrenched in the establishment on his new “Trespassing.” Perhaps that’s just the way it goes when a burgeoning star on a major label has an army of hit-making songwriters and producers working for him, but Lambert sounds more comfortable on the often-lackluster “Trespassing” than he should.”

@rosie6172: Trespassing review in Sunday Herald Sun in Melbourne Australia :)) 3 1/2 stars 🙂 lv Rosie xxx http://twitter.com/rosie6172/status/204055658218258432/photo/1

Arjan Writes – A Few Words about Adam Lambert “Trespassing” and the Power of Pop “Lambert perfectly understands the power of pop and uses the ever-evolving genre to his full advantage. While pushing the envelop creatively, artistically and personally, the singer gives people music to make their own and cherish forever, which makes him a pop star of the brightest kind.”

Chicago Tribune Soundcheck – Trespassing Review

Joseph Vogel – What I’m Listening To: Trespassing (Adam Lambert) “Really enjoying this album, especially the dance tracks. It feels like a hybrid of Prince, Timberlake and 80s-era Queen. Much more consistent and confident than his first album”

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

People magazine

After Elton – Watch! Adam Lambert and Beth Ditto Make a Rollicking Tag Team on “Watch What Happens Live” After-show segments that weren’t shown on air last night are included here. “Adam and Beth so needs to be the next Bravo reality show.”  Amen. Will go check out Beth Ditto’s music. She’s a hoot and what great chemistry with Adam!

Village Voice (blog) 100 & Single: Answering Questions On Adam Lambert’s Historic Chart-Topping Album – A great follow-up to the writer’s previous column. “The event I didn’t think could happen was Adam Lambert scoring a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 album chart with his second disc, Trespassing. But I sure was wrong, and it sure is fun: By reaching the penthouse, Adam becomes the first out gay artist …”

QTheMusic – Q&a Adam Lambert – How to get from American Idol to working with Pharrell, Nile Rodgers & Queen “[Sam Sparro and I] did a B-side around my last album called Voodoo which I really regretted didn’t go on the album because it’s strong. I looked at the songs I enjoyed performing from that record and the songs that went down well live, and I took a cue from that for this album, an electro, disco, funk feel is something I wanted to chase down. Pharrell opened the door for that and said, This what you should do and with Sam we created two more songs. Shady is one of them and we have Nile Rodgers playing on it. It’s about wanting to get nasty and wanting to get into trouble.”  Q. Back up a second, Nile Rodgers?…” Hahaha, Adam is conquering Britain!!

Cheeky Chicago – Watch Out, Christina…Adam Lambert Is Back  “Glam rocker Adam Lambert stole the limelight at 103.5 KISS FM’s annual Fantabuloso. Though his songs may not be at the top of the iTunes singles chart, Lambert’s voice shone like no other. That man can sing!”

The Hollywood Reporter – Adam Lambert Insults Clay Aiken on Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens’ (Video) “Besides being runners-up on the Fox competition, Lambert and Aiken also share a penchant for candor — and, apparently, bad blood on either side. In 2009, Aiken launched a bitter 2009 tirade against Lambert, one of whose TV performances he slammed as “awful,” “contrived” and “slightly frightening.”

NPR/WRVO – The End Of ‘Idol’: There Are No More Songs Left To Be Sung Very interesting article! “Idol and shows like it have significantly contributed to what the theorists Charles Leadbeater and Paul Miller called “the Pro-Am Revolution“: the rise of a new creative class pursuing passions on a freshly built bridge between hobby and career. Artists have always been cultural entrepreneurs, but as “pro-ams” they shift their trajectory, finding ways to expose and establish themselves before partnering with a bigger machine. E.L. James, the author of Fifty Shades of Grey, is a Pro-Am. So is Mark Zuckerberg. So, I’d argue, are the most interesting Idols and Voice alums, like Adam Lambert and Juliet Simms.”

New York Post – Sony star power: Poised to steal music crown from Universal “When Sony Music chief Doug Morris left rival Universal Music Group last year for his current gig, he wanted nothing more than to dethrone the perennial US king of album sales. The 73-year-old executive may not have thought it would happen this fast. With yesterday’s news that Billboard named Adam Lambert’s “Trespassing” the best-selling CD in its debut week, Sony is poised to knock the king from its throne.”

Huffington Post – Adam Lambert’s ‘Trespassing’ Makes No. 1 Debut, Becomes First Openly Gay Male Artist To Top Charts “…But Lambert’s chart triumph is also historic, as it marks the first time an openly gay male performer accomplishes that feat. As AfterElton notes, “Other gay performers such as Elton John and George Michael have hit No. 1, but only before they came out, and they haven’t managed that honor since.””

LA Times – Adam Lambert’s chart-topper ‘Trespassing’ is a high and a low “When Season 11 of “American Idol” comes to a close in a few hours, no one should feel too sorry for the runner-up. One need only to look to this week’s pop charts for evidence that the “American Idol” crown isn’t a requisite to cultivating a fanbase. The theatrical pop-rocker Adam Lambert finished second on “American Idol” during its eighth season, and this week he earned his first No. 1 album in “Trespassing.””

Entertainment Weekly – Album Sales: Adam Lambert tops the Billboard charts, beating out Adele and Carrie Underwood “Adam Lambert’s passionate “Glamily” helped propel his second LP into first place with sales of 77,000 — a strong result for an album that has yet to spawn a significant hit (“Better Than I Know Myself” sputtered on the chart, and followup “Never Close Our Eyes” is slowly climbing).”

Philly Tablet – Springle Ball: Sugary pop, dance tracking, anthemic hits, and teen girl fantasies “With his hot new album Trespassing, Adam Lambert also jumped on the rhythm stick. The strong high singer and his electro-glam band eschewed their usual grandeur (save for a dramatic “Whataya Want from Me”) for a set of funky Duran Duran-meets-Chicrockers such as “Never Close Our Eyes.”

The Village Voice: Music – Midyear Report: 12 for ’12 “Adam Lambert feat. Sam Sparro and Nile Rodgers, “Shady.” American Idol’s superstar runner-up pays homage to “Superstition” and Chic with this slinky slow-burner of a track, which has a star turn from Rodgers on guitar.”

Windy City – Adam Lambert, Iglesias among acts at Allstate show “It is interesting to note that the openly gay Lambert had straight fan attendees and openly straight Iglesias had more gay fans screaming for his set.” ….and Xena can’t resist commenting!

Rolling Stone Video Interview – Adam Lambert Knows Who Should Win ‘American Idol’ “Her voice gives me goosebumps. She gives me stank face…”

HULIQ – Adam Lambert And ‘Trespassing’ To Hit No. 1, Make History “A week after appearing on the hit show that launched his career, the “American Idol” alum many say is the greatest vocal talent to have ever graced the stage notches his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. In doing so, not only did he notch a personal best with “Trespassing” but Adam Lambert made chart history simply by being himself.”

Tenacious D, ‘Glee’ and Garbage Headed for High Debuts on Billboard 200 Chart. “On Nielsen SoundScan’s Building chart (below), Lambert is No. 1 while Adele’s 21 is sitting pretty at No. 2. The Building tally is a precursor to the final Billboard 200 ranking — reflecting the first four days (Monday through Thursday) of SoundScan’s tracking week as reported by six major merchants.”

Mix 106.5 Baltimore – Adam Lambert On Katy Perry and Goyte [sic] “Adam Lambert recently sat down with Mix 96.5/Houston and shared some of the music on his iPod. Two of the tracks that came up wereKaty Perry‘s “Part of Me” and Goyte‘s [sic] “Somebody That I Used to Know.”…“I’m just so surprised that it’s a radio hit. I love it!” he said. “I love that it’s so non-traditionally radio. It’s really cool. It’s catchy and his voice is cool. It seems to be the trend right now.”

PerezHilton – Adam Lambert: Never Close Our Eyes Preview “The vid appears to be inspired by the mind washing scenes from the cult classic, A Clockwork Orange.  Ch-Ch-Check out the eye-popping teaser”

PopDust – SPOILER ALERT: ADAM LAMBERT’S “NEVER CLOSE OUR EYES” VIDEO PREVIEW “Only one thing can come next: Adam Lambert has to break out of the hospital and/or conspiracy he’s suddenly found himself caught in. He has no memory of anything–not how he got there, not whatever freaky-deaky Dollhouse-like experimentation’s been done on him, not who that blond guy is…”

Digital Spy – Adam Lambert teases ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ music video – watch “The preview of the accompanying music video sees a collection of flashing images, indicating that it will take place in a medical experimentation facility. It ends with Lambert waking up in a dark room and taking his hood off his head.

People – What Inspired Adam Lambert’s Latest Hair Look? ““I wanted it to look like sunrise,” Lambert told PEOPLE last night at the American Idol results show. “My hairdresser and I have a lot of fun. Both of us get bored very easily—so it’s like, ‘What are we going to do now?’”

On Top – Adam Lambert: Trespass Into My World “…Lambert added that he wrote the track Outlaws of Love to express how he feels about the adversity the gay community faces…Lambert added that he later realized that the single “can be applied to so many other situations.”

4Music – News: Adam Lambert Offers Unreleased Songs To One Direction “The 30-year-old singer told The Daily Star: “There’s a lot of songs that didn’t make the album that are really strong. We did some pop-rock stuff, so maybe one of these new boybands could do one.””

Two good friends of mine have a baby, and he’s amazing, and watching him from infancy to now — he’s still a toddler — it’s just like, it’s amazing. It’s amazing. Amazing to watch a child grow and to see things through their eyes, I mean it’s so easy for them and it’s so simple for them, and it’s inspiring.”
