Adam Lambert Receives Something – Rave Reviews on New Release!

Adam Lambert just released the first song, Feel Something from his upcoming 4th album last night, and already it’s receiving rave reviews. This morning he tweeted that it’s #7 on iTunes, but as I write this, it’s jumped up to #4!

While writing this, I checked iTunes and Feel Something was #4!

The write ups started appearing just 19 minutes after it was released, starting with Rolling Stone.

Adam went LIVE for 18 minutes within the hour after its release, wanting to get immediate feedback from
his fans. He kept asking for questions about the song. Maybe not many fans knew about the LIVE session, but his message to the world that morning was so raw and emotional, I think fans were timid to ask for more; afraid of intruding into his head space.

Adam really came alive when people asked about his clothing for the Oscars on Sunday night. He also made some kind of “dad joke” at 7:30, but I didn’t get it. If you did, please put it in the comments!

Adam went LIVE on Instagram.

If you haven’t heard the song yet, listen here. I’ve included the lyrics, which he posted on his Instagram page.

LYRICS

I’ve been leaving my heart in all the wrong places 
Took it back way too soon when I shoulda been patient 
I built all these walls so no one could break in 
Truth is I miss those nights when my heart could be naked 
I don’t need to feel love
I just wanna Feel Something
If it’s never enough 
At least it’s better than nothing
After everyone I’ve lost 
and every kiss I wasted 
I don’t I don’t need to feel love 
Just wanna feel Something 
Just wanna feel Something 
Just wanna feel Something 
I just wanna feel 
I waited so long to feel like I’m worthy 
Find someone who could rewrite the pages I’m turning 
I’ve grown with the pain and bathed in the lonely 
All I want in this moment is someone to hold me 
I don’t need to feel love
I just wanna Feel Something
If it’s never enough 
At least it’s better than nothing
After everyone I’ve lost 
and every kiss I wasted 
I don’t I don’t need to feel love 
Just wanna feel Something 
I just wanna feel Something 
I don’t I don’t wanna feel nothing 
I don’t I don’t wanna feel nothing 
Just wanna feel Something 
Just wanna feel 
Something

Love ya!

Carol About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

    The song is beautiful….thank you so much Carol for sharing. I listened about the dad joke 2 times and I really did not get it either. I guess Queen and Adam will be singing Bohemian Rhapsody at the Oscars. I was hoping for a medley but he did say they have sang that song so many times(when someone asked if he would be nervous) he is used to it. I can’t want to see them. I have tickets to see them in Charlotte NC but not till August. So this will be a tease and a treat for me.

      Thanks mandytwo! Did you notice the comment he made about someone having a CD player? I think he forgets not everyone in his fan base has gone totally digital. There are still plenty of people with living room stereos and cars with CD players!

    The song is beautiful, I am so looking forward to Sunday at The Oscar’s. And Yes I also have CD players, 3 to be exact?

    Very touching and heartfelt, but I hope some of the other music is more upbeat. It would be great to hear him happy as well!

    It is a beautiful song & sung with such tenderness & soul. I love EVERYTHING that Adam does…but I agree with Lila, I really want to see Adam do more upbeat music as well.
    Remember how everyone’s blood was pumping when he was on AI & doing a lot of the more upbeat, rock style cover songs? Don’t get me wrong I certainly love the more tender, heartfelt ballads, but I think if he is going to find a broader audience of converted Glambert’s & get some radio playtime, then I think he needs to really get our blood pumping again & stand out with his rock’in Charisma. Bring it on Adam Baby!
    That’s what I’m hoping to see in some of his new music.
    But…always ADAMICTED xox

    I for one love the dreamy ballad, it is so raw and emotional. I think this is exactly what will get airplay…..not an upbeat pop or rock song. This is kind of in Sam Smith’s lane…..and look at the kind of airplay Sam Smith gets on these kinds of ballads. A ton! That’s kind of all Sam does. And he sold out MSG…..so I think Feel Something is PERFECT. In fact….already #4 on iTunes…..that was fast!
