Adam Lambert will soon make his annual return to the American Idol studio.
On May 17, two days after his long-anticipated sophomore album Trespassing is released, the season 8 runner-up will perform new single “Never Close Our Eyes” on the very stage that launched his career. Lambert tweeted the news himself on Monday.

It will mark his third performance on the show since coming in second to Kris Allen in 2009. During season 9, Lambert mentored the finalists for Elvis Presley week then performed his hit song “Whataya Want From Me.” The next year, he performed “Aftermath,” also from his debut album For Your Entertainment, during Top 13 week.
