Adam Lambert Runs Down VELVET With Us – Track By Track

Wearing some divine Gucci sunglasses and matching shirt, Adam Lambert ran down his just-released VELVET album live on the iHeart Radio app Friday afternoon and brought viewers in to talk about each track. He gave insight as to what inspired songs, what it’s like to sing them, and answered questions running up his screen about the songs.

It was a rare moment to go this deep inside his thought process and learn some inside tips. For example, Loverboy is about someone wanting more of a connection with Adam before things progressed from the bar, where they just met, not the other way around. And Closer To You is really hard for Adam to sing. Not emotionally, but because of the voice athletics it calls for. And the biggest surprise he discovered that morning was that the first pressing of physical CDs are missing the vocal track on New Eyes. These will become a “Collector’s Edition!” He explains a “clerical error” is to blame and it becomes a perfect track for karaoke.  So he suggests to film yourself singing and send it to him!

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! :)
