Adam was all a “twitter” last night giving his fans immediate messages about If I Had You as his next single.
Starting with the cover art:
Followed by his instruction to us (spelling is edited):
Request ‘If I Had You’ at your favorite radio station now!!! Let’s blow this sh*t up!!!
Then to make sure we knew who to credit with the gorgeous cover:

Then a reminder, with a very valid caution to us:
Request IF I HAD YOU w your fav radio station but remember: once a day! Don’t abuse the privledge! 🙂 I love you all so much!
Then he just got all happy giving us three tweets with the lyrics: (we’re thrilled to get his tweets, even if he made a slip or two on the lyrics, right?)
“There’s a thin line tween a dark side and a light side”
“there’s a thin line tween a wild time and a flatline”
“the flashing of the lights- It might feel so good, but I got you stuck on my mind!”
When the above picture was prematurely released as the supposed cover art for If I Had You, some of the fanworld was again thrown into a bit of a tizzy over the selection. Remember the reactions to the For Your Entertainment CD cover art? But if people had taken a breath and waited, they might have realized they’d seen this picture before. At least, the people who buy the actual CD, not just get the download version. It was the first picture inside the CD booklet. You know, the one where most of us need magnifying glasses to read the lyrics in!
But now the true picture has been revealed. I’m very glad that we have new art to look at – when will the Museum of Adam Lambert open?!?! I want posters!!
Let us know your thoughts. Cast your vote in the comments – would you have preferred this as the CD cover?
