Adam Lambert has chosen to split with 19 Recordings after three years of working with the entertainment company. The American Idol Season 8 runner-up signed to 19 Recordings once he reached the finals that season. His contract expired this month, and Lambert chose not to renew. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Lambert left 19, but is still signed to RCA, and that the split was “amicable,” as Adam and his former team have “the utmost respect for each other.”
Lambert recorded his first two studio albums, 2009′s For Your Entertainment and last year’s Trespassing, while under the 19 Recordings umbrella. In addition, a whole slew of live recordings and remixes were created during that time, which propelled him into the overseas market making him huge in territories like Asia. If this sounds like a bunch of business-end nonsense to you Glamberts out there, here’s your one takeaway: the singer is currently in talks with RCA about concepts for his third album.
