Adam Lambert still has a few weeks before For Your Entertainment goes on sale, but the title track is already a hit on iTunes.
SheKnows has the goods on the entire Adam Lambert debut album experience!
We got a hold of the track list and credits, and as anticipated, the album calls on some of music’s hottest names. “I feel so lucky to have been granted true opportunity to work with some of the top producers and writers in popular music,” Lambert raves. “This album is a reflection of their genius and the collaborative energy that they were gracious enough to share with me.”
On the easily recognizable side, there are contributions from Lady Gaga, Pink, Muse, Justin Hawkins (formerly of The Darkness), Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.
Then there are behind the scenes players you’re more likely to recognize from their credits. Rob Cavallo, who produced four Lambert tracks (including the already available Time For Miracles), can take credit for hits by Green Day, My Chemical Romance, David Cook, Alanis Morisette, Chris Isaak, Paramore, Jewel, Shinedown and Dave Matthews Band.
Writer-producer Dr Luke has bragging rights to several hits by Kelly Clarkson, as well as Katy Perry’s I Kissed A Girl, Avril Lavigne’ Girlfriend and Flo Rida’s Right Round. Wells and Evan Bogart have bragging rights for Rihanna’s SOS and Slumdog Millionaire hit Jai Ho! and while Linda Perry is a rock legend in her own right, her recent superstar credits include hits like Christina Aguilera’ Beautiful and Pink’s Get The Party Started.
It bares mention that Glambert had a hand in penning four of his songs, and from the snippets, the album’s sound will reflect the retro glamtastic rock sound he loves, without feeling outdated.
