Adam Lambert Says 'The Original High' Will Be a Dark and Personal Pop Album

The former 'American Idol' contestant also says that most songs on his highly-anticipated new album 'are more esoteric and so they're open to interpretation.'

AceShowbiz - New details about Adam Lambert's highly-anticipated new album "The Original High" just keep coming. A day after treating his fans to a preview of "Ghost Town", the first single off the project, the singer discussed the song as well as the LP in a new interview with Hunger TV.

"The first single feels like the perfect introduction to 'The Original High'. It establishes itself in a very earthy, vulnerable way and transforms into a hypnotic dream full of surreal imagery and set to a minimal yet massive deep house beat," he said of "Ghost Town". "The hook will worm its way into your ears after the first listen. Get ready!"

Of the song's parent album, Lambert explained how it would sound different from its predecessors. "This album was executive produced by Max Martin and Shellback and they helped me keep a very cohesive sound and mood throughout," he said. "Sonically it feels more contemporary than my previous material. It's definitely pop, but not bubblegum."

"We have avoided camp and theatrics and have favored a darker, more grounded vibe, and at the same time, it will make you dance!" he continued. "Lyrically, its very very personal, the album has an overall bittersweet feel to it. Vocally, I think it's my most tasteful, sophisticated work to date. With Max's guidance, I approached a lot of it with more restraint than in the past. Instead of being overly specific, most of the songs are more esoteric and so they're open to interpretation."

"The Original High", which marks Lambert's first album to arrive under Warner Bros. Records, is due out later this year. Its lead cut "Ghost Town" will be released on April 21.
