Adam Lambert announces new single ‘Ghost Town’

Singer lines also lines up third solo album after wrapping up UK tour with Queen

Adam Lambert has announced details of the first single from his new solo album.

The track ‘Ghost Town’ will be released on April 21. You can listen to a snippet of the single by clicking below.

The singer, who recently fronted Queen‘s UK tour, described his new record which is his third solo LP, as “pop with some R&B flavours”. It has been produced by Max Martin and Shellback.

Queen guitarist Brian May recently described Lambert as a “gift from God”.

He said he was the only performer they had found who was capable of filling the shoes of iconic frontman Freddie Mercury.

“Adam is the first person we’ve encountered who can do all the Queen catalogue without blinking,” said May. “He is a gift from God.”

May also said Lambert can reacher higher notes than Mercury ever could.

His bandmate, drummer Roger Taylor, added: “He’s incredibly musical, and we certainly take anything he says quite seriously.”

Lambert, however, was less eager to compare himself to Mercury. “There’s never going to be another, and I’m not replacing him,” he said. “That’s not what I’m doing. I’m trying to keep the memory alive, and remind people how amazing he was, without imitating him. I’m trying to share with the audience how much he inspired me.”

Queen and Adam Lambert wrapped up 10 UK arena tour dates in January which took in shows in Glasgow, London, Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham.

GHOST TOWN. APRIL 21st.
