Hi. I know you’ve been waiting! Well I’m finally ready to bring new music to all of you.
First: Let me offer a most sincere thank you for your patience and continued faith in me. You’ve pushed me to keep going even when I felt discouraged. I love making and performing music, but there have been many times where I’ve had to compromise on my artistic vision, with executives making decisions based on money and not art. Don’t get me wrong—I’m VERY proud of my body of work. But I’m coming out of a dark period of second-guessing my own artistry and having my mental health suffer because of it. I started asking myself, “is all this hustle really worth it?” I put all my focus on work and started to feel detached in my personal life. My self worth was suffering, I was lonely, and becoming depressed.
Luckily, I have also been touring with Queen which recharges me with tons of positive energy. The fans we perform for are so full of love, and Brian May and Roger Taylor are a joy to play music with and always remind me of my value. Together we have collaborated creatively on our tours and this helped me to reaffirm my confidence in my artistry. Working with Queen helped keep my head above water, and I am so grateful to the spirit of Freddie Mercury, who has always inspired me to push ahead boldly.
With a bit of professional help, and the support of colleagues, friends and family, I pulled myself out of the darkness. I decided to begin my next album on my own so I wouldn’t be influenced by anything but my passion for music. I reached out to fellow writers and artists that I’d met over the years and began booking sessions with them. I wanted to make the music I wanted to make, and to get in the headspace I was in when I first dreamed of being a singer—before playing the industry game started messing with my love for music.
After the first few songs were written, I began to realize that the only way to get this new project released the way I envisioned it was to change up my team. So I hired a new management company and signed with a new record label. A fresh start!
I wanted to give a gift to you to kick off this new era before I drop my first official single. It’s a preview of the upcoming album—and a song from me to you. It’s called “Feel Something.” This was written about me climbing out of the low period, defying my disillusionment, owning my needs, and opening my heart. The life of a bachelor can be a laugh, with plenty of flings, but after awhile it starts to feel empty. Between frustrations with my career and many lost connections, I felt numb—and though I wanted to fall in love, I knew I wasn’t ready. That’s what inspired me to cry out, “I don’t need to feel love, I just want to feel something!” It was in this realization that I took my first step toward self-care and nursing my spirit back to health. This song is the emotional starting point of my new album.
The tracks will chronicle the journey of taking responsibility for my own happiness and strength, and searching for intimacy. Since writing this song, I’ve found the joy I was missing and I’m back in my power. I can’t wait for you to hear more!

Hear Adam Lambert’s Achingly Yearning New Song ‘Feel Something’
“Since writing this song, I’ve found the joy I was missing and I’m back in my power,” singer says
Adam Lambert has released new song “Feel Something.” It’s the singer’s first new solo track since he unveiled 2017’s “Two Fux.” Lambert said it’s slated for his upcoming album and serves as a preview of what’s to come.
Written by Lambert, Benedict Cork and Josh Cumbee, the achingly yearning ballad showcases Lambert’s acrobatic vocal range. “I’ve been leaving my heart in all the wrong places,” he sings. “Took it back way too soon when I should’ve been patient.” Later, he confesses on the chorus, where a backing chorus buoys the sentiment, “I don’t need to feel love, I just want to feel something/If it’s never enough, at least it’s better than nothing/After everyone I’ve lost and ever kiss I wasted/I don’t, I don’t need to feel love, just want to feel something.”
“This was written about me climbing out of the low period, defying my disillusionment, owning my needs and opening my heart,” he wrote of the song in a post he shared on social media before the tune’s release, adding that he had been feeling empty and numb when it came to life as a bachelor and also frustrated in his career. Eventually, his circumstances led to him realizing, “I don’t need to feel love, I just need to feel something.”
“This song is the emotional starting point of my new album,” he said.
Lambert, who will perform with Queen at the Oscars on Sunday, opened up about “the dark period” he had been going through in the post, which had stunted his creativity. He began by thanking fans for their support.
“You’ve pushed me to keep going even when I felt discouraged. I love making and performing music, but there have been many times where I’ve had to compromise on my artistic vision, with executives making decisions based on money and not art,” he wrote. “Don’t get me wrong. I’m VERY proud of my body of work.
“But I’m coming out of a dark period of second guessing my own artistry and having my mental health suffer because of it,” he continued. “I started asking myself, ‘Is all this hustle really worth it?’ I put all my focus on work and started to feel detached in my personal life. My self worth was suffering. I was lonely and becoming depressed.”
However, he credited touring with Queen (they will hit the road again in June), collaborating with them creatively and also receiving additional support from professionals, colleagues, friends and family in helping him get through.
He added that he had begun his latest writing process on his own before recruiting fellow writers and artists. “I wanted to make the music I wanted to make,” he said, noting that he is making a fresh start with a new label.
He also gave some insight into what to expect of the material on his new album. “The tracks will chronicle the journey of taking responsibility for my own happiness and strength, and searching for intimacy,” he concluded. “Since writing this song, I’ve found the joy I was missing and I’m back in my power. I can’t wait for you to hear more!”
