Adam Lambert Drops Details On His Sophomore Album

Adam Lambert is currently working on his follow-up to his 2009 debut album For Your Entertainment, and our favorite glitzy-pop performer is working hard to avoid the dreaded sophomore slump. The former Idol spoke to MTV on the American Idol finale red carpet last night ( looking as glam as he usually does) and gave details on the new set of tunes which he says makes up his “dream album”.

“I’m writing most of the material with people myself this time,” he says, adding that he’s written 18 to 20 songs already. “I’m really involved. It’s really exciting because I think I’m making my dream album. I know that sounds a bit clichéd, but I’m making exactly what I want to listen to.”

He mentions a few of his collaborators, including Sia, Ryan Tedder and Nikka Costa. We’ve already heard the magic that Ryan and Adam can conjure in the studio (FYE‘s dreamy synth-ballad “Sleepwalker”), but we’re even more excited to hear what Lambert and his personal idol can create together.

Are you excited for Glambert’s second offering? And who else should he hit the studio with?

    I am SOOO ridiculously excited for Adam’s second album! And awww he is so adorbs in that vid, love him.

    And eeeeee to a Sia collab, she is amazing, from back in the day with The Girl You Lost To Cocaine to just recently Xtina’s gorgeous and haunting You Lost Me, she is so talented. Cannot wait to see what the combined brains of Adam and Sia come up with!

    I bet Adam’s sophomore album is going to kick butt!! He is working with a lot of good people but this time it will be his!! Adam’s last made for a fantastic live performance tour – but this one is the one I am most excited about. I know he is working hard and making sure he writes and infuses every song with his own sound. Cannot wait!!

    I’m so excited for his new album release!! Gahhh if he keeps me waiting any longer I’ll probably pop! I’m sure it’ll be good but I don’t know, many artists who have a kick-ass first album start spiralling downwards afterwards… I’m not trying to diss him (OFC NOT!! IM A GLAMBERT) anyway, only fate will know. for now, good luck adam 8)
