Ring the bells, Glam Nation — Adam Lambert’s second post-Idol album Trespassing now officially has a release date, and it’s March 20. As mentioned yesterday, the LP’s lead single “Better Than I Know Myself” will be an early holiday treat for fans of the vocal powerhouse, as it hits iTunes this coming Tuesday, December 20.
We already knew that Adam was once again working with his “For Your Entertainment” producer Dr. Luke and songwriter Claude Kelly on material for Trespassing, but the record also features such varied collaborators as Pharrell Williams, Benny Blanco, Bonnie McKee, Nile Rodgers, Sam Sparro, Bruno Mars, Nikka Costa and BC Jean.
We’re particularly curious to hear how the Nile Rodgers’ tune(s) sound, as the onetime Chic member is the legendary producer behind such classics as David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance”, Madonna’s “Like A Virgin”, Duran Duran’s “Notorious” and The B-52′s “Roam”. (On a sad note, Rodgers announced earlier this year that he is battling cancer.)
Also, nice to see something worthy of recording developed out of Adam and Nikka Costa’s screaming match from this past spring.
Lambert notes the following in a press release for his album: “It’s been a transformative period and I really wanted to make music from what I’ve experienced. All these songs honestly explore the ups and downs of my reality.”
Alright, Adam fans — raise your hand if this is all music to your ears!
