Next Single From 'The Original High'?
It looks like "Another Lonely Night" is the next single from 'The Original High.'

Here’s a little something for Adam Lambert completists! Sterling Fox, who co-wrote three tracks on The Original High, shared a pic of the first draft of “Ghost Town” on Twitter last night (August 23). It looks like the first words on the page eventually became the third and fourth verses (they are near-identical), but the songwriter’s original chorus reads “now I know my world is a ghost town.” I kind of like that too.

Produced by Max Martin and Ali Payami, “Ghost Town” is already the 33-year-old’s highest-charting track (number 67 and climbing) on the Billboard Hot 100 in five years. It has performed even better internationally — reaching number two in South Africa and Australia. Sterling also co-wrote “Another Lonely Night,” which is rumored to be the second cut from Adam’s third LP. See his tweet below.
