Channeling ’70s glam and serious Hozier vibes (we mean that as a compliment), Adam Lambert has just released “New Eyes,” the first video and single from his upcoming 4th album Velvet.
The song certainly feels in line with how the Queen frontman described his new sound to Echo Magazine:
“I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do for a minute, as far as my solo career. Now, I’ve explored some new sounds and some new concepts and I’m on the course to put something out, but it took a second to discover that for myself, for this project. I was really digging, trying to find some authenticity. The most authentic sound and style that I could. There’s a lot of reference to Glam-Rock and Classic Rock of the ‘70s and the early ‘80s.”
Check out the video, directed by Miles & AJ, below:
Tune into the American Idol finale this Sunday on ABC to catch Lambert performing the song live.
