Adam Lambert says new album explores both dark and light themes

Trespassing will include music written from singer's own experiences

Adam Lambert says new album explores both dark and light themes
06 January 2012

Adam Lambert's second album, Trespassing, isn't due out until March.

But the singing star is already busy talking the disc up and says fans should expect a far more personal recording than his debut 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 tells the website Pressparty. '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.'

Lambert finished as runner-up to Kris Allen in the eighth season of American Idol but has gone on to become one of the most successful alums in the show's history.

He came out publicly shortly after his run on the show ended and says the track Outlaws of Love on the upcoming album is about gay marriage but 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 says. '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.'
