Adam Lambert is writing a musical.
The 40-year-old singer – who appeared in several stage productions before appearing on 2009’s “American Idol” – is writing a slew of songs for a theater show and an accompanying concept album.
The ‘Whataya Want from Me’ hitmaker told BANG Showbiz: “I’m working on a new album, a concept album for a musical I’m creating, so it should be out probably next year. I’ll be the star of the album it will be my voice so yes my album will be, it will be all me.”
Adam also teased that he works with a host of high-profile collaborators, but he’s kept tight-lipped about who they are.
He added: “I work with a lot of people, it’s a dream team of collaborators.
“We have songwriters that I really respect, we have other artists collaborating with me, professionals in a bunch of different disciplines. It’s going to be quite a project.
Since 2012, Lambert has toured with legendary rock band Queen – consisting of original members Roger Taylor and Brian May – in place of the late Freddie Mercury.
In addition to performing worldwide, Adam Lambert + Queen have also released two live albums; 2016’s ‘Live in Japan’ and ‘Live Around the World’, released in 2020.
Adam was scheduled to record new Queen music with Roger, 72, and Brian, 74, but the drummer says his bandmate “suddenly lost interest” in the idea.
Roger previously told Mojo magazine, “Well Brian suddenly lost interest and I don’t really know why. We started him in Nashville when we were all pretty tired.
“We couldn’t decide on a title and the lyrics were maybe a bit too negative for Queen.
“But it was damn good, and hopefully it shows.”
