Adam Lambert may have revealed everything about his sexuality, but he’s very poker-faced when it comes to his professional debut. Well it turns out he’s working with Swedish-Morrocan producer RedOne, the man behind the pop phenomenon Lady Gaga and the person often credited for the recent comeback of glam rock. Lady Gaga is theatrical for sure but glam rock – maybe not?
In any case, E! News says that Adam Glambert spent last weekend holed up with RedOne in an LA recording studio. According to the busy producer in an interview with the LA Times, Adam Lambert will be taking a dance/pop direction with heavy rock influences.
“I want to go rock — David Bowie and Queen, but make it more easy for people to get,” the producer said of his vision for Lambert. “It has to be rock, but with an interesting dance angle to it, you know? You’ll like it.”
RedOne said he hopes to record at least six songs with Lambert, but that doesn’t guarantee that they’ll all make Lambert’s RCA debut (a Lambert representative was unable to be reached prior to posting). An “Idol” finalist comes equipped with a built-in fan base, and RedOne said he’s eager to play with people’s expectations.
“You know what I like about him? He’s fresh,” said RedOne. “You can go almost whatever direction with him. People know him from being on ‘American Idol,’ singing other people’s songs, but you can take him in a new direction, and this will be the first time you hear Adam Lambert with his signature. My goal is to get his signature out from him to the world.”
I’m so excited to hear what Adam’s post-Idol sound will be like!
