Adam Lambert's 1.6 million Twitter followers were the first to know.
The singer, one of the more active celebrities on Twitter, has used social media to announce the latest single: Trespassing, the title song from his sophomore album.
The single, which Lambert describes as 'fierce,' will debut Thursday (6 September) evening.
The album, released on May 15, 2012, skyrocketed into Billboards Top 200, debuting at number one in its first week with nearly 78,000 copies sold. It marked the first time an openly gay artist had an album debut in the top spot.
But surprisingly, Lambert's first two singles, Better Than I Know Myself and Never Close Our Eyes have not cut fire the way past hits such as Whataya Want From Me did from his first album For Your Entertainment.
Trespassing, written by Lambert and mega-hit producer Pharrell Williams, may fare better with its broad dance appeal and cleverly constructed lyrics.
