‘Ghost Town’ will appear on the one-time American Idol contestant’s forthcoming third album ‘The Original High’, which he has described as “pop with some R&B flavours”. The LP has been produced by Max Martin and Shellback.
Lambert recently fronted Queen’s UK tour which led guitarist Brian May to describe him as a “gift from God”.
“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.”
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 Lambert wrapped up 10 UK arena tour dates in January.
