And I thought, "Okay obviously there's no arguing with how brilliant the original is but I can't just copy it. In the case of Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World,” things shift entirely in the opposite direction, transforming the song into a piano ballad. 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. And, with "Mad About the Boy," Lamber turns a little song about a boy into a soaring Bond-theme ballad that never abandons its core of vulnerability. The all-fabulous star takes the liberties he should, like when inserting mind-hijacking dance beats to songs such as "Sex On Fire.

A notable standout among those more true-to-source tracks is his Duran Duran cut, “Ordinary World,” in which he hews close to the original but runs with the opportunity to flex his incredible vocal range.With a mix of songs that allow him to show off a range and versatility, High Drama highlights Lambert’s skill as a curator, a side of himself that he has not really shown off much up until this point. OFFENBURG, GERMANY - FEBRUARY 25: Adam Lambert performs on stage during the Giovanni Zarrella Show .

For me, it’s been really challenging to twist these songs into completely different arrangements and make them sound brand new.Summary: The latest full-length release for pop artist Adam Lambert features covers of songs by such artists as Culture Club, Lana Del Rey, Duran Duran, Billie Eilish, Kings Of Leon, P! Somewhere along the way, though, he had a change of heart and threw himself into an ambitious project to cover 11 well-known beloved songs.

And yet it’s crucial we stay active and provide vital resources and information to both our local readers and the world. And having been in the recording industry for 13, 14 years, I now know more than ever exactly who I am and what I'm about and what my brand is, and what my sound is, and who my fans are. And I think now as I'm older, a good melody, you don't need to change it as much [laughter] It's a good melody. The irony of Adam Lambert is that now he is the official stand-in for Freddie Mercury in Queen, it's much less exciting when he adopts Queen's trademark stomp in his own electropop. On his cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero,” the take is nearly unrecognizable from the original; it’s more in the proggy direction of Muse’s “Uprising.

The result of High Drama is that no song is by mistake there, and no drum fill, guitar solo, or throbbing bass lacks curation for a new sonic personality of a classic. 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. The album is a impressive journey through Lambert’s skillset as a cover artist, as he delivers his own versions of songs such as Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero,” Sia’s “Chandelier,” Billie Eilish’s “Getting Older,” Duran Duran’s “ Ordinary World,” and many more. Currently, Lambert is working on writing a musical, which will feature original songs from a stellar lineup of collaborators. 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.

Lambert: Yeah, like I said, I think the arts are the biggest tool to push and effect and flip pop culture. Songs range from the more recent, Pink's My Attic, Billie Eilish's Getting Older, an epic rock re-imagining of Lana Del Rey's West Coast, to the beautiful interpretation of Noel Coward’s classic Mad About The Boy. The singer turns back the clock for his spin on Dinah Washington’s “Mad About A Boy,” flipping it into a suave theme.You hear people criticize it, likely not part of the community saying things like, "Why does it have to be all about that?
