The NewNowNext Awards are turning 5 this year, and this morning Adam Lambert announced on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live that he’ll be one of the performers on the show. Oh that’s right! I’m pretty sure Glambert is the traditional gift for a 5 year anniversary.
Luckily, we were recently able to snag an interview with the always amazing Adam about his new album Trespassing. You can see more of the interview from the NewNowNext Show later on the site today, but in the meantime check out the online exclusive excerpts below:
In this clip, Adam talks about the proliferation of music competition shows on TV today, and how the television industry is different from the music industry.
Adam wrote Trespassing after having his heart “trampled on” and features a wide range of songs from emotional to funky, dance jams. Below, he talks about some of the songs on the album as well as his upcoming collaboration with Sam Sparro.
With Tresspasing, Adam also wanted to speak directly to the gay community, and many of the songs deal explicitly with the issues that gay men and women face.
