Okay, so I admit it – I just wanted an excuse to post this dishy photo of Adam! It was taken on July 17th outside the Staples Center while Adam was taking part in American Idol Live, which was being held there. (Thanks to ShowBizSpy for the photo.)
Also during the Los Angeles stop, MTV News interviewed Adam and asked about the upcoming debut album. Here’s what Adam had to say…“It’s kind of taking the best parts of music from the ’70s, like the classic-rock era, and trying to somehow fuse it with modern, dancier, electronic production. It’s kind of a fusion thing.” According to MTV News, Adam will not only be working with Lady Gaga producer RedOne, but with Greg Wells, the producer and songwriter behind hits by Pink, Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson. Adam is also reported to be working with OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, who wrote Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love,” as well as with Linda Perry (Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful,” Gwen Stefani’s “What You Waiting For” and much more).
As has been widely reported already, Adam plans on mixing up tempos and styles on his new album. “It goes back and forth,” Adam said. “There’s some ballads, there’s some uptempo, there’s some songs that are a little bit more straightforward, current pop. There are some songs that are more dance; there are some songs that are straight rock.”
The reporter asks what’s his favorite song so far. “I can’t tell!” Adam laughs. “I’m not allowed.”
The MTV article ends on this high note. “The music’s gonna be great. Just wait a couple months. You gotta be patient,” promises Adam.
Okay, so there’s not much here that we haven’t heard before, but hey, we still hang on every word that comes out of Adam’s mouth, don’t we?
I personally don’t really care what will be on the new album. I’m partial to rock, but I will buy it, listen to it, and love it regardless! What about you? Are you happy with the “fusion” that Adam promises, or would you prefer all rock or something else entirely?
