About this deal

The songs Lambert chose to cover for the album range from contemporary hits to decades-old classics, and vary in tone from camp anthems to iconic tearjerker ballads. For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. It’s a lot of rock music, a lot of music from the ‘70s, but the process of putting a musical together is a longer timeline.

This then transitions naturally into Lambert’s take on Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast,” doubling down on the bluesy, hard rock aesthetic. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse. He then transforms Kings of Leon’s “Sex On Fire” to a bouncy and upbeat bass-driven alt-pop song that starts quiet and sensual before crescendoing into a fun, almost campy, climax.And I thought, "Okay obviously there's no arguing with how brilliant the original is but I can't just copy it. Lambert isn’t trying to outdo the originals on High Drama, but rather take them to a different place. 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. That balance is the anatomy of a cover song: a stylised production that borrows from an artist the vitals and encases them in a fleshier, fresher sound. But what I've noticed over the years is the people that hit the hardest and become beloved are the ones that follow their own path.

In "Getting Older," Lambert shows how a composition, even as recently as one by Billie Eilish, can be given a new emotional avenue to explore by a tempo change – a reframed chorus or simply, in this case, the age of the person singing it. Exclusive to the artist web site this clear viny version also includes a 12" art card of the cover signed by the artist. I’ve done that on Idol, obviously… and Queen is essentially sort of a covers situation, even though I’m in the band.Tracks like "Holding Out For A Hero," the Bonnie Tyler '80s classic, and Sia's hit "Chandelier" ooze Lambert's rocket-high falsettos and thunderous instrumentation. With High Drama, Lambert has delivered a collection of unsurprisingly solid and well-executed covers. The book she's writing happens to be the nonfiction best-seller that inspired this film: Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent, by Isabel Wilkerson.

also saw Lambert join Queen for a sold-out European tour including ten shows at London’s The 02 Arena. Signature tracks from the original artists like Chandelier, West Coast and Sex On Fire come to life this time in a very singular aesthetic, and it screams Adam's song and not cover. 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. Lambert is no stranger to this interpretative body of work and shows it from the onset of the record.This site is protected by reCAPTCHA Enterprise and the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply.

Given Sylvester's massive singing range, it really does take someone like Adam Lambert to give this a go. The singer turns back the clock for his spin on Dinah Washington’s “Mad About A Boy,” flipping it into a suave theme.
