Adam Lambert delays release of new album

Singer says he needs time to work on some more new songs

Adam Lambert delays release of new album
17 February 2012

Adam Lambert's second album Trespassing, which had been scheduled to be released on March 20, has been delayed.

No new date has been announced.

The singer announced the news himself to fans via Twitter: 'Yes, the album release date has been pushed back. Working on some new songs, making the album even better! Thank you all for understanding.'

The album's first single, Better Than I Know Myself, was released in December and Lambert said Trespassing would be more personal than his 2009 disc For Your Entertainment.

'I felt I was ready to write music from my experiences and give a very honest emotional portrayal of my desires and fears. Both dark and light," Lambert told the website Pressparty last month. 'While exploring these themes I realized how universal my topics were. I think part of the beauty of song is how they connect people. Whether they're dancing or crying, the best songs resonate with the masses.'

One of the tracks on Trespassing was to be Outlaws of Love which is about gay marriage but which Lambert said came to have even more meanings.

'I wrote Outlaws about the many challenges the gay community faces and how hopeless it sometimes makes me feel,' he said in the Pressparty interview. 'After I shared it with friends, it became clear that the lyrics could be interpreted in so many ways. I later visualized it underscoring scenes from Bonnie and Clyde, Twilight, Milk or even The Color Purple. Adversity has many faces. My intention is that the tracks on Trespassing strike a chord with all walks of life.'
