Adam Lambert Says It Doesn’t ‘Make Total Sense’ to Record a New Album With Queen: ‘To Me, Queen Is Freddie’
Current Queen frontman Adam Lambert has ruled out recording new music with the group.
During a chat with Hungertv.com, Lambert touched upon his role as the lead singer of Queen today, explaining, “We’re trying new visual component and trying to re-contextualise these songs, with new lights and scenery.
We had a great time creating it together. People always ask if we want to record together and I’m not sure it makes total sense because it wouldn’t really be Queen because to me Queen is Freddie (Mercury).
My favorite thing is collaborating and putting these concerts together and creating on stage — it’s super fulfilling and exiting. To present these ideas to these two gentlemen — especially when they like the idea!”
“Once you figure out who is Queen – you realize they’ve been in your pop culture subconscious the whole time,” he explained. “Their one of those bands that their songs are so iconic that you might not know anything about them but you know the damn song!”
Four years since releasing The Original High, Adam Lambert is ready to release new music in the form of his upcoming album, Velvet.
Though it’s been a while since fans have had a new album, Lambert has been touring the world as the vocalist of iconic band Queen since 2011–but that doesn’t mean recording an album with them is in the works.
