Adam Lambert's "Ghost Town" Lyric Video
After what seems like an eternal wait, Adam Lambert is finally back!

The Queen concerts, the American Idol guest-judge stint, the magazine spreads and new single “Ghost Town” have all been leading up to one thing for Adam Lambert and his fans: The release of the singer’s first album in three years, The Original High. And today, with the eerie echoes of said single still in our heads, news comes that Adam’s new record will actually kick off the summer season.

A press release notes that The Original High, recorded in both Stockholm and Los Angeles with Max Martin and Shellback behind the boards as executive producers, has a release date of June 16. Ahead of that, Lambert will be making an appearance (and, we’re guessing, performing) on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 30.

We posted the tracklist for the album yesterday — it contains features by Tove Lo (on a song called “Rumors”) and Queen guitarist Brian May (“Lucy”) — and it turns out the standard edition will consist of 11 songs, while “After Hours,” “Shame” and “These Boys” will appear on the deluxe edition of the LP.

The Original High was made available for pre-order on iTunes today. Think you can hold out two more months for the release of Adam’s new album?
