The good news for Adam Lambert is that more dates were added to a well-received tour with Queen, confirming the notion that he’s being accepted by the group’s entrenched fanbase worldwide. The bad news? Well, it’s once again pushed back work on a long-awaited new studio album.
“I’ve been working on it a lot earlier this year, and I’m going to continue working on it after the Australian leg of this tour,” Lambert tells TheBackLot. “But it’s gonna be great! I think people will really be into it.”
His most recent effort, 2012’s ‘Trespassing,’ was recorded for Lambert’s old label RCA as part of a post-Idol contract. That partnership was ultimately torn over a disgreement about his career direction, however. Since, he’s kept busy with a series of projects, in addition to appearing with Queen — the most memorable of which was a multi-episode arc on Glee.
As for when the new album might appear, that remains up in the air. “I honestly don’t know,” Lambert confirms. “It has to be finished first, and the Queen tour got extended, and that has definitely shifted the timeline a bit.”
