OUT honoree Adam Lambert, who performed with legendary rockers Queen at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Belfast on Sunday night, has announced that the lead single from his upcoming follow-up LP to For Your Entertainment has been delayed again. “…Due to some unforeseen logistics, legal annoyances and creative details, the first single is delayed again,” the Glam One tweeted late last night.
In October, Lambert first informed his Twitter followers that the single had been delayed from a previously-announced month of release when he wrote the following: “Seems as though the single will explode in November. I’m sorry for the delay- but trust me, it’s worth it.” He also mentioned at that time that the album would be released at some point in the spring.
Last night the award-winning singer went into a bit more detail on Twitter as to the thinking behind the delay for his new material:
“I want to apologize for claiming November as the release month. I spoke too soon. I had a great meeting in London yesterday and continue…To take the time to ensure the song is its BEST and that the whole album and campaign is a unified artistic extension of my spirit.”
It’s a disappointment as, like us, most fans are no doubt eager to hear exactly what Adam’s sound will be like now that he’s been able to put a decent amount of time into this album — unlike For Your Entertainment, which was recorded and released within six months of his stint on American Idol.
Lambert ended his tweets on an upbeat note last night. “Thank you so much for your patience. I PROMISE I won’t let you down & that this upcoming project will take you on a wild ride! I love u all,” he wrote.
Sigh. You heard the man…
