Adam Lambert’s ‘Trespassing’: Check Out New Tracks & Adam’s Twitter Q&A

We’ve pretty much been listening to Adam Lambert‘s Trespassing all day long, as the pop star’s sophomore album is currently streaming on Adam’s official site. To mark the occasion of his music finally reaching his fans’ ears, Lambert did a Q&A on Twitter this afternoon, answering his followers’ many queries — including what he thinks of Justin Bieber‘s Believe album cover art, which shares a similar design to his own album cover. Head below for Adam’s comments, as well as a few standout tracks from Trespassing that we just can’t get out of our head.

Some highlights from Adam’s Twitter Q&A:

:: Adam says he is “relieved” and “flattered” at all the praise his album is getting.

:: His favorite song to record was “Shady”: “Shady was fun. Sam [Sparro] is hilarious. Nile [Rodgers] is a class act. A legend.”

:: About track “Chokehold”, Adam says, “It was written about a few past relationships. Had a tendency of getting involved w emotionally manipulative and unavail guys…. after much heartache, I realized this was MY issue, not theirs. I was subconsciously inviting that in cuz of low self worth.”

:: That is indeed Pharrell singing the “come on”s and “whoa”s in “Kickin’ In.”

:: So which track does Adam’s boyfriend Sauli love the most? “Sauli gets down to the pharrell tracks but loves them all,” Ad says.

:: A fan asks if he saw the cover of Justin Bieber‘s Believe, which has a similar design to Adam’s cover art. “Haha prob unintentional,” he says. “But a marketing blunder nonetheless.”

:: Just in case anyone saw that as a diss to The Bieb, Adam follows with a compliment to the 18-year-old pop star. “I Really like the ‘Boyfriend’ single. Great tune, great vocal vibe. Hats off to a talented artist.” (No wonder this guy was crowned the nicest guy on Twitter.) When one fan seemed utterly distraught that Adam listens to Bieber, he replied, “I listen to good music. My ears don’t discriminate. :) a great song is a great song.”

We’ve listened to the album a few times now, and we’re eating it up. Here’s a few of the standouts, that range from thumping dance tunes to heartbreaking ballads — yes, the man can do it all. (Make sure you go listen to the whole thing at Adam’s official site, and pick up the LP when it drops on May 15.)

Adam Lambert – “Kickin’ In”

Adam Lambert – “Broken English”

Adam Lambert – “Runnin’”

    These songs are totally amazing. The vocals are smooth and sexy, or vulnerable or synthy new-agey but always gorgeous. That’s the word. The sound is lush and gorgeous. Kudos Adam.

  • Valli

    I am in awe of Adam’s talent! Well worth the wait.

  • Linda

    It’s interesting to notice you put up Runnin as a favorite, because a lot of us (glamberts) are drawn to that track., which may be odd for a bonus track. IMO it should have been on the album, it’s THAT good.

  • tim

  • Theresa Dailey

    Great story, thanks. Now if we could just get America to buy his album, maybe radio would play him. I can’t wait for the record and I hope america finally gets it. Other countries do. Thanks.

  • sue s

    I agree with Linda. There’s something about Runnin that just grabs you and won’t let you go. Needs to be on the radio. It’s adictive!

    I LOVE Adam’s new album “Trespassing” … every bit of it. I have always been a fan since Adam was on AI but some songs on FYE just didn’t resonate with me. I figured he would eventually get around to recording an album that I would totally love, but I wasn’t expecting it just yet. Every song on “Trespassing” is awesome in its own way, but I especially love “Underneath” because I interpret that song as a heartfelt message from Adam to his fans about the intent of the album. It feels like he is singing that song directly to me and it makes me sooo emotional every time.

    I was blindsided by the fact that I too TOTALLY love “Runnin”. It and “Shady” are tied as my second favorite songs. I’m sure that I am driving everyone who comes within earshot crazy because of my obsession with this album and my non-stop streaming of it. I’m in Glambert heaven … and LOVING it. :)

  • New Glambert

    I am a fan, maybe not a hardcore Glambert, but a fan. I mean, how could I not be, this dude is uber talented. But no, I’m probably not a Glambert, or I wasn’t until listening to Trespassing. Damn, it’s so good, it just – is. It’s time for this vibe – Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, MJ, NIN, Prince, 80′s house music…etc. It’s working and it’s well timed, imho, but that’s just me – New Official Glambert

  • Kathryn

    It’s absolutely brilliant!! I hope people appreciate it and this album gets like loads of wins!! Totally deserves it! One of the best Pop albums to come out in recent history!!
    All the luck to you Adam ! :D

  • Jesse555

    Don’t have much to add except this album is my fav in many years. I enjoy every single song. Each is a gem! This album will have you dancing and crying…It’s my Album of the Year!

  • Sharon Miller Sullivan

    I have read so many reviews that are very positive and rated 4/5 stars. But the one from Rolling Stone was the most surprising as they didn’t even rate Adele’s 21 album that high. I love each & every song on Trespassing. I have never listened to an album in my life w/o ff on at least 5-6 tracks but not this one I guarantee you I’ve listened to the stream of the album and can’t stop I just keep repeating it w/o even 1x ff. Now that’s a huge compliment to music on this new album. Adam & his co-writers, producers, and all the people that contributed to the making of this album should win an award hopefully a Grammy or Grammy’s in their future.

  • Jackson

    Blows me away. Nothing out there like this. his heart is so big and palpable.

  • Melissa Pauls

    The stream for this album is ruling my life right now! Gah is so fricking good!!

    Cannot wait to have the whole thing in glorious HQ on my ipod on May 15th!
