In His Own Words
7/17/2011 by NoAngel
[F]or this album, I wanted it to be much more personal, something that would allow people to know more about who I am inside… From within me, ideas and song lyrics have been pouring out, so as it stands now this album has become a personal one. ~ Adam Lambert, from INROCK magazine August 2011 interview *
In his recent interview with INROCK, Adam revealed that he has written most of the 25 or so songs he’s recorded for his next album. I think it’s fair to say that fans are thrilled with this news. Writing songs means that Adam will have a greater share of profits from song sales. It also means that he will gain cred as a songwriter and quiet those critics who argue that Adam is just a singer and not a “real” musician.
There is something even more important about Adam writing his own songs—it gives Adam power. The power that a person has when he speaks his truth and has the platform to be heard. Words are incredibly powerful, whether they are spoken, written, or sung. They can create and reveal emotions. They can incite action. They can change lives, and they can reveal a life, a soul, a heart. Realness.
Adam knows he has a fantastic voice, but if that was all that mattered to him, he could have pursued theater until he achieved the success he deserved. For FYE, Adam was given songs by many talented writers, and he could have gone the same route for his sophomore album. Yet he wanted more than to sing other people’s feelings, and he knew that this meant taking pen in hand before stepping up to the microphone.
Adam is both a creative spirit and a control freak. We all know how he stifled he felt doing musicals when he didn’t have the freedom to fully express himself and reinvent songs and melodies. That creative freedom was important enough to him that he took a chance on AI and accepted the baggage that would come along with it. With FYE, Adam finally had an album of his own and label support to select and interpret its songs. Yet he only had time to co-write a handful, and none of his singles were his own. While Adam was always enthusiastic about his official radio singles, his special delight in Aftermath, a song he co-wrote with his friends, was palpable. He clearly had both deep affection for and a strong connection to this song. Reinvented acoustically, it became one the most heartfelt songs of GNT. I love that he made this song happen as a remix and then rolled up his sleeves to trend it with us on Twitter when it was released. We’ve spoken of Adam’s love and loyalty to his friends and family and even his clothes. This love and loyalty obviously extends to his own creations.
It takes courage to do what Adam is doing—reflecting, analyzing, and capturing his thoughts and feelings in words. Exposing himself and making himself vulnerable. It takes even more courage to take those very personal words and sing them out loud for both fans and strangers to hear. But Adam has never lacked courage, and I have confidence that his risk will be rewarded.
Adam wants us to hear more than the notes of his beautiful voice. He wants us to hear him. What he thinks and feels, whether it’s smart or silly or funny or sad. In Lynne’s eloquent words, Adam wants “the joy of being understood, the power of human connection, … the shared moment.”
I can’t wait to listen.

More Adam News
I think this is Project Runway confirmation
There is an AdamOfficial.com thread asking for confirmation on the Project Runway rumor. Ed's response is a wink. Since he seems to like to say “no” or “not that I’ve heard of.”. I take a wink as a “I can’t say”.
Liam we love you! Keep playing Adam’s music and we’ll keep listening!
Liam McEwan played a song that was released to radio from the “Take One” album. As he explained below, he did not know the history of the album. A few very vocal fans overreacted. Thankfully, many more fans responded to his message with tweets of support.
Here is Liam’s Tweet:

Regarding me playing a song from "Take One" on my show this morning: I have received a lot of feedback about my show this morning, mainly about me playing "Did You Need It". I have heard that many people have chosen to never listen to my show again because of this. Thank you for giving me some insight into the history of the album. After hearing what you had to say, I have deleted the "Take One" album from the station's database. That will be the last time a song from that album is played on my show. I was never aware of the story behind the album. Thanks for understanding!
So I have a question for these “righteous” fans? Walmart, Target, Amazon, iTunes, Best Buy, etc. sell “Take One” – do you boycott them too? (I am not endorsing this “bastard” album, just endorsing rational and consistent behavior.)
More of the Japanese INROCK magazine interview, as translated by terraj:
I've not yet translated the last part of INROCK i/w but I've posted the 2nd (best part) terraj.livejournal.com
ETA: Here is the last part --
Terra: I've uploaded the final part of my interview translation: terraj.livejournal.com/
Here is one great Q&A:
I: Is that so? This time, you didn't want to have a hard deadline I guess?
A: Yeah. This time, perhaps you could say that it’s a matter of allowing things to take their own course. But really, it’s most important that the music is fantastic, thus there hasn’t been a hard deadline. And which is why I haven’t been rushing on the album, but instead, have been taking my time to bring in elements that I think are important, which will enable me to make fantastic songs.
This is a do not miss read -- check out the whole translation.
