Global superstar Adam Lambert returns with High Drama, an album of inspired covers including a powerful version of the Duran Duran hit “Ordinary World,” which Lambert performed on the 2022 season finale of The Voice.
Grammy-nominated pop icon, LGBTQ trailblazer, and Queen front man Adam Lambert brings you High Drama, a wonderfully diverse collection of covers with a twist, held together by Adam’s once-in-a-generation voice and trademark flair. Lambert is no stranger to impressing crowds with his carefully curated transformation of other artist’s songs, from the beginning of his career on American Idol to his 2018 performance at the Kennedy Center Honors, where Lambert reduced Cher to tears with his delicate ballad reading of her mega-hit “Believe.”
Executive produced by Lambert himself alongside production from the likes of Tommy English (Kacy Musgraves, Carly Rae Jepsen), Andrew Wells (Halsey, OneRepublic), George Moore and Mark Crew, High Drama kickstarts the next chapter in Adam Lambert’s solo career and showcases a journey through modern music. The diverse collection of songs span from classics like Ann Peebles’ “I Can’t Stand The Rain” and Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero,” to modern hits such as Billie Eilish’s “Getting Older” which gets a glam-inspired transformation, and a rock-leaning rendition of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast,” with each song showcasing Lambert’s unmatched vocal talent.
At the start of the 2022, Lambert joined the judging panel for the new ITV (UK) Saturday night entertainment show Starstruck alongside Beverley Knight, Sheridan Smith, Jason Manford, and host Olly Murs. Following the huge success of the show, it was announced Lambert will return to the panel in 2023. 2022 also saw Lambert join Queen for a sold-out European tour including ten shows at London’s The 02 Arena. Currently, Lambert is working on writing a musical, which will feature original songs from a stellar lineup of collaborators.
