N_JOY interview – Adam pops balloons to get questions. He wants to see the pyramids. Would look like a pumpkin if he shaved his head. I cry like a baby during sad movies. Cried watching “Still Alice.” Germany tongue twister. Loves mint chip ice cream; cookie dough too.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Billboard – Adam Lambert on Bonding With Sam Smith, His New Sound and His ‘Dark Side’ (VIDEO) Shirley Halperin interview! “Lambert has always been about forward movement, after all. He may never find his place — but he’s not sure if he wants to. “Life’s about exploring new things,” he says. “It’s about getting into new relationships and adventures and traveling. That’s what gives me the motive to keep pushing on. Like, what’s next?””
Billboard – 20 Pop Songs You Need For Your Summer Playlist At #8. “Lambert’s lead single from The Original High is a slow-grower that casual fans will embrace upon the fifth or sixth listen. Plus, “Ghost Town” marks another dazzling display of those American Idol-approved vocals.”
Details – Adam Lambert Finally Feels Like a Grown-Ass Man “As for the current state of pop? I actually think it’s in a really good place right now because it’s super diverse. People are dictating what’s on the radio more than ever. There’s still program directors, and they’re still very influential as to what gets put on these playlists, but the radio guys are looking at Shazam and Spotify and iTunes, all of these streaming services and YouTube and Vevo—all of this stuff—in order to understand what people want. And I don’t think they used to have as many tools as they have now. So it’s all happening quicker and in real time as well. So with Shazam, you can see how well a song is catching on while it’s catching on. So a radio station can look at that and go, “Oh. Okay. People like this. I’m going to put it on my station.”
…For the first time in my life, over the last year or two, I feel like I’m a fucking grown-up! I definitely have a little dash of Peter Pan syndrome somewhere, where I always have a childlike attitude towards things. But I bought my first house this year, I have a business, I’ve done a lot for myself, and I’ve done a lot for my career. And all of a sudden, I’m realizing: “You know what? I’m a grown-ass man! I will not be talked to a certain way. I will not be treated a certain way.” Having self-respect is part of that, too. And I’ve had my ups and downs with that my whole life.”
LA Times – Q&A Adam Lambert on new album ‘The Original High’: ‘I know who I am now’ One of the better interviews. “”There’s a difference between being an artist and being an entertainer,” he said recently during a frank conversation in West Hollywood. “I have both sides to my personality. But with this music, I was like, I don’t care if everyone’s going to understand what I’m singing about. It’s real to me.”…”
Sunday World – Adam Lambert’s new LP ‘like a therapy session’ “He told BANG Showbiz: “I would say that the big running theme throughout the album is the pursuit of happiness. Some of my previous work and my life in my early twenties, was like most people, was about trying to figure out who I was, a search for identity. Now that that’s pretty much established I feel like the next chapter in my life is trying to figure out what works for me and what makes me happy, and what I want out of life.”
The Guardian – Adam Lambert: The Original High review – a bouncy pop-house journey. 3 stars. “Songwriting producers Max Martin and Shellback – behind hits like Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood, Ariana Grande’s Problem and Lambert’s own 2009 single Whataya Want From Me – harness their hit-making skills to full effect throughout, opting for thumping basslines, earworm melodies and the slightly tired concept of love as a metaphorical drug. Turn it up before hitting the club, but look elsewhere for lyrical creativity.”
PressPlay OK – REVIEW: Adam Lambert – The Original High “The Original High feels like Lambert at his most original and most comfortable (dropping a ‘fuck’ in the first three minutes is a point well made, let’s be honest), and it feels like seeing an artist properly work his magic for the first time…The album pulses with one incredible pop jam after another. The title track is a sprint both lyrically and musically to that eponymous buzz, which is more than rewarded by an explosive chorus. And whether it’s a slower jam like the sensual Underground or the spikier ‘bombs over Broadway’ burial on Evil In The Night, it’s all united by the common thread of Adam Lambert’s supreme charisma…That’s where the heady hit from The Original High comes from: knowing that a talent like this has been in front of us all along, but the sense that we’re truly discovering him for the very first time.”
Bustle – Adam Lambert’s ‘The Original High’ Is Now Streaming Online, So Here Are 5 Must-Hear Tracks — LISTEN “I need to spend some more time with The Original High before I put together a review, but I can say right off the bat that from a songwriting and production standpoint, it’s a very impressive (and very cohesive) body of work. Oh, and Lambert’s vocals are out-of-this-world amazing throughout (but you probably knew that already). I have a feeling Lambert’s new record is going to be on heavy rotation on my iPod this summer.”
dl – New Music: Adam Lambert – “The Original High” (Full Song / Review) “No need to wonder why Adam Lambert titled his new album “The Original High” anymore. Clearly he just knew the title had to that when he finished recording this song in the studio and realized it was probably the best song he had ever done. “The Original High” is beyond-belief amazing and will undoubtedly be the best track on the album – don’t even need to hear the rest of the material to make this statement.”
The Backlot – Review: Adam Lambert’s “The Original High” Is The Soundtrack Of Summer “Future Ancient God. Future International Space Station Plaque. Future College Course Subject. Human defibrillator paddle. Human Zephyr. Earth Ambassador To Planet Glitterock. There are so many ways to describe Adam Lambert, and with the release of his third studio album The Original High (out June 16th), we can add another moniker … Phoenix.”
Queerty – Adam Lambert On Turning Down Hedwig, Making Out To His Own Songs And Creating Music For His Gay Bros “Lambert chatted with Queerty about making music his gay fans can enjoy, why he turned down the chance to play Hedwig on Broadway and whether he’s ever had sex while listening to one of his own songs…”
