Adam Lambert teased his upcoming sophomore album Trespassing this week by performing a five-song mini-concert of songs from the record on Jimmy Kimmel.
The performances included his new electro-pop single “Never Close Our Eyes”, which is on iTunes now, but still isn’t due at mainstream radio for another month.
Glambert must really be super pumped about his new album, because he was queening out on stage and giving us more diva than ever before. It was a little Las Vegas cabaret in parts, but overall he killed it with great vocals and a lot of confidence. Lord knows that these days it’s refreshing to see a pop star who can actually sing an entire song live and still slay.
One of the songs Adam performed, “Naked Love”, was a Benny Blanco / Shellback production that sampled Crystal Waters’ hit “100% Pure Love”. It’s really catchy and upbeat, and reminded me a lot of Katy Perry mixed with Madonna. Then there was the Pharrell Williams penned & produced “Trespassing”, which showed off Glambert’s funkier side.
The other two songs, “Broken English”, written & produced by Sam Sparro and Lester Mendez, and “Cuckoo”, from songwriter Bonnie McKee and her collaborator Oligee, haven’t been uploaded in HQ yet, but both songs sound pretty solid from the fan recordings that are up.
I’m gonna w!%#e the s*&t outta this album when it drops next month!
