PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Music Daily News – Adam Lambert May Perform At Olympic’s Closing Ceremony “A source tells Music Daily News: “Lambert has been reached out by Queen again to perform with them at the Olympics. He has yet to make a decision, but it would be hard to believe he would turn it down after performing with them earlier this year.” Unfounded rumor?
American Idol.net – Is Brad Paisley The Next American Idol Judge? “One rumor down, a thousand more to go. Now that American Idol 2013 has signed Mariah Carey as a new judge, there’s been endless speculation on who the other judge orjudges might be. And if you’ve read any of my past posts, you know how much I hate writing about speculation. But this is sounding a little more likely than the others, so I thought I’d fill you in…”

The Insider – ‘PLL’ CREATOR TALKS DANGEROUS FINALE! “What made Adam Lambert a good fit for the Halloween episode? Marlene: Everything! His look, who he is, the songs he sings (Cuckoo and Trespassing off his sophomore album) — it feels like those songs are perfectly written for the Halloween episode of PLL. It was so much fun and great having him involved.”American Idol’ notes: Brad Paisley, Adam Lambert, Haley Reinhart “…Speaking of Adam, he made a rather big announcement on his Twitter account this weekend — the next single from “Trespassing” is coming up soon! Adam said specifically that the announcement would come in the next week, and we’re personally hoping for “Cuckoo” or “Naked Love” based on how catchy and radio-friendly they are. Let’s just hope that no matter what the song is, it obtains a larger share of radio airplay than either “Better Than I Know Myself” or “Never Close Our Eyes” did earlier this year.” Keep reading…. The Hollywood Reporter: Adam Lambert, John Mayer and 5 More Rock Star Options for ‘American Idol’ Judge “With Mariah Carey‘s impending arrival at the American Idol judges’ table and Randy Jackson‘s status still unconfirmed, rumors abound about who’ll take the open seat. Will it be a country star or does it make more sense to replace exiting rocker Steven Tyler with another? …7. Adam Lambert: He may not have sold as many records as any of the previously mentioned stars, but the season eight runner-up has a huge advantage — he was on the show. Indeed, Lambert’s Idol run was consistently spectacular, drawing in legions of now diehard fans still grieving that year’s results, and he worked the competition flawlessly. What Idol hopeful wouldn’t welcome the insight, not to mention Lambert’s genial manner, during the most stressful opportunity of their life? Now that’s a judge worth tuning in for.” Read on for the whole enchilada…. Adam Lambert to perform on Japanese television (Video) July 30, 2012 By: Renee Snyder Adam Lambert will soon be off to Japan to continue promotion of his album, Trespassing.

Adam Lambert has just announced that a new single will be coming soon and immediately his fans began a guessing game of which song it will be off his album, Trespassing. This morning Adam tweeted, “Announcing next single soon!!!! Get ready!” followed by “Soon: week or so…”
Speculation about which song will be the next single began right after Adam’s tweet, ranging from a slow song such as “Outlaws of Love,” to a dance hit like “Naked Love.” However, the overwhelming guess seems to be the track “Cuckoo,” which was tweeted by fans so much, it even became a trend on Twitter. Why are many guessing that Cuckoo will be the next single? Probably because it was one of the songs Adam sang for his guest appearance on Pretty Little Liars, which will air in October. That seems like a long time from now to promote a single that is supposedly coming “soon.” However, Adam’s version of “soon” tends to be longer than for most people. Plus, although the single announcement may be in the next week or so, the release may follow later, closer to the Pretty Little Liars airing. Others think that the rumors of Adam becoming a judge on American Idol are true and that the single release may coincide with that announcement. However, at this point, it’s just a guessing game.
A mad ginger musican. Basically. “So Adam Lambert finally released his brand new album Trespassing in the UK this month so I’ve been listening to it on Spotify. I’ve always quite liked Adam Lambert, way before he joined with Queen this year to play concerts. His song from his first album, Whataya Want From Me, was played a lot when I visited Switzerland for a school exchange in my 4th year so it brings back good memories. And Adam’s music seems to blend elements of rock, pop, glam and dance together which is interesting to listen to. I’m not a lover of dance music, there are a few exceptions of course, but that irritating beat and the autotune on most tunes nowadays just drives me crazy. But on this album, you can hear real vocals and a more natural sense to the music, which is a huge breath of fresh air. Once again, this is my own personal review on this album, I’m not a professional critic, but hopefully this might persuade some of you to go and buy this album, because I’m going to! :D” Read the full review…
