‘Writing music like a crazy person’: What’s next for Adam Lambert after U.S. debut with Queen?

Fresh off a triumphal debut on American soil with Queen, Adam Lambert will apparently turn his attention to some new solo material — and he says appearances with Brian May and Roger Taylor have had a direct impact on the creative process.

Lambert’s most recent studio effort was the May 2012 album Tresspassing. That followed 2009’s For Your Entertainment, issued in the wake of his runner up finish as a contestant on American Idol. The concert EP Acoustic Live appeared in 2010.

By then, Lambert had already begun a musical relationship with Taylor and May in Queen, one that’s included a well-received set of European performances before last month’s show in Vegas as part of the iHeart radio festival.

Along the way, Lambert says he’s hit upon a musical theme for his new project.

“I’m writing music like a crazy person,” Lambert says in this talk with Ryan Seacrest. “I’m, like, in love with rock ‘n’ roll again. I feel like there is such a change happening in the music scene. People are playing instruments again, and this whole thing with Queen has been really inspiring. So, I’m going to revisit my rock ‘n’ roll roots a little bit — the things that made me want to audition for Idol in the first place. That’s been my inspiration.”
