As wild as this is to say, Lambert might've been a more effective interpreter back in the days of the competition and restrictions of American Idol.

His queerness is present, from the subtle pronoun shift he sneaks into “Chandelier” to his masterful cover of “Mad About the Boy,” his own proud contribution to a tradition of decidedly gay interpretations of the Noel Coward song.Lambert first teased the album title and it’s content of eleven cover songs on This Morning on December 2, 2022.

Executive produced by Lambert himself alongside production from the likes of Tommy English (Kacy Musgraves, Carly Rae Jepsen), Andrew Wells (Halsey, OneRepublic), George Moore and Mark Crew, High Drama kickstarts the next chapter in Adam Lambert’s solo career and showcases a journey through modern music. Ordinary World" goes back to the well of his "Mad World" breakthrough on American Idol, finding the deeper pathos in the brittle songwriting of the 80s. Previously, Mike produced KSRO’s “The Drive with Steve Jaxon” drive-time radio show since 2008, covering news, music, pop culture, politics and more.He channels his inner Prince for his take on ‘Sex On Fire’ which is transformed from a raucous rock track to a dance-fuelled floor filler that is multi-textured and effervescent. On his cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero,” the take is nearly unrecognizable from the original; it’s more in the proggy direction of Muse’s “Uprising. High Drama works best in those moments where Lambert manages to make a cover feel like it belongs to him as much as to the original artist. The properly established American Idol alumnus – and Queen showstopper – does it with flair in High Drama, an album of cover songs that strikes a delicate balance between the familiar and the truly novel. And I thought, "Okay obviously there's no arguing with how brilliant the original is but I can't just copy it.

It's an update that feels in line with Lambert's sound and aesthetic, while paying homage to a specific forebearer who paved the way for his career. With a mix of songs that allow him to show off a range and versatility, High Drama highlights Lambert’s skill as a curator, a side of himself that he has not really shown off much up until this point.To me, the single best performance I saw last year was Joni Mitchell, "Both Sides Now" at the Newport Folk Fest. I was a skeptic, but this album blew me away, some covers took my breath away in the best sense of the word. Over the past decade, I've explored a few different areas and sounds and energies, and I feel like part of this new chapter in my career is me being really clear on who I am, and what I am, and what I'm not. And I think I'm in a place right now that's interesting 'cause I just feel like I have a really strong idea of what I want to make.
