And I think there was a point in time on my journey over the last 14 years where I wasn't totally sure. What used to be the intro of the song is now the bridge in the middle, it starts out with the chorus as opposed to a verse. Yet, what Lambert's adventures with Queen may have revealed to him is that he's an even better fit on delicate baroque pop like "Killer Queen" - the kinds of songs he hasn't traditionally had the patience or audience to support. He then transforms Kings of Leon’s “Sex On Fire” to a bouncy and upbeat bass-driven alt-pop song that starts quiet and sensual before crescendoing into a fun, almost campy, climax. Adam once again proved that his I was a skeptic, but this album blew me away, some covers took my breath away in the best sense of the word.

Baltin: Was there one moment where you really noticed your voice changing and it allowed you to convey different emotions? His queerness is present, from the subtle pronoun shift he sneaks into “Chandelier” to his masterful cover of “Mad About the Boy,” his own proud contribution to a tradition of decidedly gay interpretations of the Noel Coward song.There’s nothing really wrong with that approach, which gives us safe-but-solid versions of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast” and Pink’s “My Attic,” two songs where he avoids diverging much from the originals. However, I was influenced by the great rendition of the single Holding Out For a Hero to give it a shot. Lambert makes the most of his careful selection of songs, helped along the way by an impressive roster of producers that includes Tommy English and Andrew Wells.

At the start of the 2022, Lambert joined the judging panel for the new ITV (UK) Saturday night entertainment show Starstruck alongside Beverley Knight, Sheridan Smith, Jason Manford, and host Olly Murs. Lambert is no stranger to impressing crowds with his carefully curated transformation of other artist’s songs, from the beginning of his career on American Idol to his 2018 performance at the Kennedy Center Honors, where Lambert reduced Cher to tears with his delicate ballad reading of her mega-hit “Believe. An insightful look into Lambert's taste and influences as an artist, the collection covers a wide array of tracks, from Lana Del Rey's "West Coast" and Duran Duran's "Ordinary World" to the jazz standard, "Mad About The Boy" and Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand The Rain. As wild as this is to say, Lambert might've been a more effective interpreter back in the days of the competition and restrictions of American Idol.Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. And having been in the recording industry for 13, 14 years, I now know more than ever exactly who I am and what I'm about and what my brand is, and what my sound is, and who my fans are. While we absolutely need someone to bring us glam rock stump and queer dance pop, Lambert's once in a generation voice is capable of so much more. are different enough and good enough to justify their existence and show what an album of cover versions delivered with "high drama" could have been, but does anybody really need yet another karaoke cover version of "I Can't Stand The Rain" or "Mad About The Boy"? I think it is becoming more and more common knowledge that the LGBTQ community really pioneered house music.

Renowned for re-imagining songs from American Idol to his stirring viral hit with Cher's 'Believe', Adam Lambert - the Grammy-nominated pop icon, LGBTQ trailblazer and Queen frontman - brings you 'High Drama', a wonderfully diverse collection of covers with a twist, held together by Adam's once-in-a-generation voice and trademark flair. Two more standout tracks are the atmospheric take on Duran Duran's 'Ordinary World', and a gloriously camp, glam rock version of Bonnie Tyler's 'Holding Out for a Hero'.

I now know more than ever exactly who I am and what I'm about and what my brand is, and what my sound is, and who my fans are," Lambert says. It's an update that feels in line with Lambert's sound and aesthetic, while paying homage to a specific forebearer who paved the way for his career. On February 27, 2023, Lambert performed " Chandelier" on America's Got Talent: All-Stars finale with the season's winner.
