Hear Adam Lambert’s “Better Than I Know Myself” In Full

Some of Adam Lambert’s diehard fans probably know the singer better than he knows himself. So they know that when Adam releases a new single, he puts his heart and soul into it. And that certainly is evident in “Better Than I Know Myself,” the lead single from 2012′s Trespassing, which we heard a preview of earlier this week. “I can be obnoxious sometimes,” the new Queen frontman sings on the track. (Adam, we beg to differ!) Either way, there’s nothing obnoxious about the fact that we can now hear the power ballad in full — and it skews more toward sex music than party music, we think. Head below to treat your ears.

Do you think “Better Than I Know Myself” bodes well for Adam’s upcoming album?

    Gah his voice is so beautiful! LOVE LOVE LOVE when he sings “I know it gets hard sometimes, but I could never, leave your side no matter what I say” it totes ramps me right up into belting the chorus along with him. Fun!

    Love the synth-iness and backbeat, the production kinda reminds me of a couple of the tracks from Rihanna’s latest album.

    Killer midtempo!

    Boring, generic. Won’t get airplay…. next.

  • sc21

    i love it!

  • CzechMate

    I thought Grenade & Beautiful Girls was boring, generic with silly lyrics & look at the airplay those songs got. This is much better – catchy hook, gorgeous vocals and decent lyrics. There’s no reason for radio not to play it as much as those other songs.

    Love it!!!! love the lyrics, heart beats, synths.

    My single “LIES” available on iTunes now is better than this…

  • sc21

  • Dani

    I’m an independent artist…I promote any which way I can… Don’t hate! I love Adam, but this is not his best… definitely not a first single. Just my opinion.

    Love the way he tells the story with this song. Killer vocals and great production…fingers crossed that we will hear this on the radio soon and can’t wait to buy a HQ copy on Tuesday.

    I am impressed with the vocals as usual. This will be a hit. Too bad it had to be leaked, but knew hat would happen. Cannot wait for entire album.

  • sam

    Denada! The sound quality is sooo much better on the official streams!

  • cupcakes

    Adam Lambert is not the new Queen frontman.

  • http://idolator.com Jason

    ADAM IS STREAMING HIS ON HIS OFFICIAL WEBSITE. QUALITY IS MUCH BETTER THAN THIS.

    I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

  • mmm

    The more times I hear it the better it gets. I’m excited to how it does on the radio.

  • Lambkin

    Does Adam have fans that arent diehard?

  • Hadas

    its amazing!! love Adam and cant wait to hear the whole album!!!

  • brapsody

    Agree with you. Still gonna download it and buy single CD Love this cover:)

  • Judy

    I am a little disappointed. Thought he might break the pop mold a bit with this single.
    Don’t get me wrong. I love Adam. Loved FYE (which should have had a couple of more singles released by the way).
    I like the “Peter Cetera” notes he hits as Pharrell stated. I am going to buy the cd though.
    I don’t know, sort of on the fence for this one. Maybe I have to hear it blasting on my car radio while driving through rush hour – always the best time to listen to pop rock.

  • Lynda Sweet

    Want a bet

  • Niki

    Absolutely amazing.. he can sing anything and be wonderful.<3

  • b champlin

    Adam has a definite here! I love it!!!

    HIS VOICE!

  • watnext

    I’ve had this song on repeat since it started streaming. It’s so catchy, and the Adam on Adam harmonies are exquisite! I can’t wait to hear it with new earbuds.

    Definitely listen here…much better quality! http://soundcloud.com/adamofficial/better-than-i-know-myself

  • pat

    It isn’t a cover. No one else has ever released it. Maybe you heard the writer ‘s demo?
    This song is gorgeous. I am hooked and I agree it should do very well on top 40.

  • MsDylangirl

    If the rest of the album sounds as good as ‘Better Than I Know Myself’ then a big yes to does it bode well !!

  • pat

    oops you meant the CD cover. I agree, it is a great cover.

  • Dani

    Pure POP Perfection! The vocals are outstanding, love the harmonies and the bridge. I hear a slight R&B influence in Adam’s vocal that I really like. The production on this is stellar.

  • Anton90

    Love the song, but I hope his next single is better.

  • HEP.

    I THINK THIS SONG IS GOING TO BE HUGE FOR ADAM LAMBERT BECAUSE IT IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT BUT ALSO VERY CURRENT,THE ENDING LEAVES YOU WANTING MORE..A GOOD SIGN FOR ANY NEW SINGLE AND MOST OF ALL THIS WETS YOUR APPETITE EVEN MORE FOR THE REST OF “TRESPASSING”…RADIO WILL EMBRACE THIS SONG, AND WATCH IT SOAR..HAS HIT WRITTEN ALL OVER IT..

  • wtdp

    Vocals – perfection as always. It’s catchy. My problem is that I picture somebody saying to me “If I wanted to leave I would have left by now” and I picture myself giving that somebody the finger – I don’t feel love from that, more like a kind of “I’m stuck with you” sort of thing. I do hope for the best, I think there’s a lot riding on this for him, but it could be better.

  • ei77

    WOW love the song

  • http://google mac

    It had to grow on me, now I love it.

  • debbielynn

    I loved this song the moment I heard it…Just can’t get enough of listening to it
    Adam keeps it real once again pouring his heart into these lyrics
    Telling a story that anyone who has ever been in a relationship can relate to
    Adam’s vocals are flawless and the production is amazing

  • Lisak

    LOVE IT! Can’t wait for the whole album but this for sure will be on my playlist between now and then.
