Lambert : unofficial album does not reflect the music I currently work on
A small indie recording label is planning to release an unofficial Adam Lambert album containing material that the American Idol runner-up co-wrote before his run on AI.
Hi-Fi Recordings/Wilshire Records CEO John Hecker said of On with the Show, that it was a legal release filled with music by Lambert that was just plain wonderful. The first single off the album, Wait, already started being streamed across websites, and was receiving reviews of it being “too poppy”, and just not being Lambert-like.
Lambert, in a statement, implied that he didn’t like the fact that his previous music was being released in public, saying “the work I did back then in no way reflects the music I am currently in the studio working on.”
“Back in 2005 when I was a struggling artist, I was hired as a studio singer to lend my vocals to tracks written by someone else. I was broke at the time and this was my chance to make a few bucks, so I jumped at the opportunity to record for my first time in a professional studio,” Lambert continues.
Despite that, Lambert’s official debut album is due to be released this fall through RCA Records.
