Adam Lambert: Solo career, Queen gigs can coexist
Are Adam Lambert’s singing duties for Queen getting in the way of his solo career?
Because the singer hasn’t released a new album in three years, not a few fans are wondering if touring with Queen has been hindering his personal growth.
That’s not the case, Adam insisted. “I have never felt like working with Queen has put a damper on my solo work. I don’t feel as though we can compete with each other,” he told Schon Magazine. “They have actually coexisted very well, timing-wise.”
“The collaboration with Queen is little chunks of time that I go on the road with them, and then I’m done, so it’s left me plenty of time to sort of flip-flop into my solo career,” he added.
It’s just that he hit a creative slump and found himself not knowing exactly what to do. “Now, I have explored new sounds and concepts, and I’m on course to put something out. But it took a second to discover that for myself, for this particular project.”
The former “American Idol” finalist assured he’s already putting the finishing touches on his new album. “I was just waiting to catch a certain inspiration. I was really digging, trying to find some authenticity. The most authentic sound and style that I could,” he related. —ALLAN POLICARPIO
