‘Things are turning’: Series of breakout moments has labels interested in Adam Lambert again

RCA label heads must be pointing fingers right about now.

Just months after splitting with Adam Lambert over their push to have the Idol finalist record an 1980s-themed cover album, he’s on a roll.

Lambert has made a huge splash while appearing with Queen for the initial time on a U.S. stage, a moment that represented perhaps the highlight of the iHeart Radio Las Vegas music event in September.

He’s helped TV’s Glee recover from a huge cast loss. He’s sat in with Avicii and Nile Rodgers. He’s added a song to buzzy, deeply emotional documentary.

In short, Adam Lambert is every-fricking-where. Except on RCA. Whoops.

Unfortunately, there’s no update yet on whether an expanded set of dates might happen with Queen, now led by Brian May and Roger Taylor since the passing of Freddie Mercury and the retirement of John Deacon.

But there’s very good news (courtesy of Lambert’s stop on the Ellen show to promote Glee) for his growing legion of fans: Lambert is, in fact, at work on new music — and there’s (no surprise, really) increased interest in his first studio effort since the RCA swansong Trespassing, issued back in May of 2012.

“I am in the studio; I am working,” Lambert tells Ellen Degeneres. “I’m talking to a couple of labels, big producers. Things are turning.”
