Is it May 15 yet? Adam Lambert’s sophomore album Trespassing is still a month or so away, but the Glam One is generously giving us a taste of what’s to come. While performing an acoustic set at the Bing lounge this week, Glambert performed a new track called “Never Close Our Eyes”, which was written by Bruno Mars. It’s a touching song about never wanting to sleep so you can spend all your time awake with your loved one. (In Adam’s case, that would be his boyfriend Sauli Koskinen.) Listen to Adam belt it out below, as well as a snippet of the LP’s title track.
“I wish that this night would never be over / There’s plenty of time to sleep when we die / So let’s just stay awake until we grow older / If I had my way, we’d never close our eyes,” sings Adam.
Maybe the studio recording will sound different, but this sounds absolutely nothing like a Bruno Mars song to us. Regardless, we love it even with just Adam’s voice and an acoustic guitar. We’re sure the studio version will be even more exciting.
A snippet of the title track from Adam’s new album also hit the net recently — take a listen below:

We’re hearing a vibe of both Queen, Michael Jackson and — dare we say, Maroon 5? — in here. How about you?
