Adam Lambert Releases Art, Snippet of New Single
"Better Than I Know Myself" will be digitally released Dec. 20.
Adam Lambert gave fans a sneak peek of his new single "Better Than I Know Myself" on Wednesday.
On his official Twitter account, the Season 8 American Idol runner-up posted the art for the song, a link to a snippet of the tune and a note revealing its release date, "Better Than I Know Myself drops on December 20th! avail on all digital music providers. Happy Holidays!!"
The song is the first single off Lambert's sophomore album Trespassing. It was co-written by Dr. Luke (Britney Spears, Ke$ha, Kelly Clarkson) with Claude Kelly (Bruno Mars’ “Grenade,” Jessie J’s “Price Tag”), Ammo (Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”) and Cirkut (Rihanna’s “You Da One”).
Other writers and musicians who worked on the Trespassing include songwriters Ryan Tedder and Evan Bogart and Chic founder and veteran producer Nile Rodgers.
Lambert has been teasing the release with recent appearances on Project Runway and Majors & Minors, and an interview in Rolling Stone which declares that Lambert "storms the dance floor on new LP."
He told the magazine he's still grateful for the start that Idol gave him in the music industry, "No major label would've signed a gay 27-year-old white theater dude without Idol. Now it's about how I use the platform. Whoever you are, I hope you can find yourself in these songs If that happens, I've won."
