Compilation album of Adam Lambert hits – and more – to be released next month

Adam Lambert has been plenty busy in 2014 filming episodes of Glee and preparing a tour with the surviving members of Queen.

One thing he has not done lately is release a new album.

But Sony Legacy is taking care of that – sort of.

The parent company of the singer’s former label, RCA, is releasing a 14-track collection of Lambert’s greatest hits and more on 27 May titled The Very Best of Adam Lambert.

Lambert recording just two albums for RCA (owned by Sony). They were For Your Entertainment in 2009 and Trespassing in 2012 which made Lambert the first openly gay male singer to have an album reach number one.

Lambert later walked away from his contract because the company wanted his third album to be a collection of covers.

The compilation album, which prolific tweeter Lambert has not mentioned on Twitter, will include Lambert’s American Idol covers of Tears for Fears’ Mad World and U2’s One as well as his version of Lady Gaga’s Marry the Night which he performed in Glee, according to Billboard.com.

His biggest hits are Whataya Want From Me, If I Had You, Better Than I Know Myself, Never Close Our Eyes and Trespassing.

As far as new music, Billboard reported last month that Lambert is currently working on a third studio album with producer Max Martin who produced two tracks on Lambert’s first album including Whataya Want From Me.
