Adam Lambert and Nile Rodgers: Studio Alchemy

Adam Lambert is currently recording his second album and logging in some hours in the recording studio. Adam’s album was originally supposed to be released in 2011, but was recently revealed by his record company that the album would be released in 2012. Some really exciting news had been disclosed this week, that Adam Lambert would be collaborating with the legendary Nile Rodgers, on some new songs.

This is exciting news for all Glamberts, as Nile Rodgers is a historic hit maker, with a knack and flair for writing great songs. Nile has worked with everyone in the music industry as record producer and songwriter, usually collaborating with artists. 

Nile Rodgers was the driving force and melodic remedy maker behind many of Duran Duran’s album, including their “Notorious” album, which was a turning point for the band. Nile came in and became an actual member of Duran Duran, filling in the void as guitarist when Andy Taylor had left the band, the first time. 

Mr. Rodgers has a long list of reputable artists, many hit songs and albums, which he has produced, written, and collaborated on, that act as his recommendations. He is the producer behind David Bowie’s iconic “Let’s Dance” album, which spawned hits such as “China Girl”, “Modern Love”, and “Let’s Dance”. 

Nile Rodger’s songwriting and production work can be described as chic and soul, with hooks and melody that became anthems. His strength is in pop rock and R&B style music, where he shines with his golden touch, which inevitably becomes chart topping hits.

The collaboration of Nile Rodgers and Adam Lambert just makes perfect sense, not only on paper, but in reality. With Adam Lambert’s style and performance of flawless vocals, and desire for a more personal album, with songs to match, the combination of both working on songs and recording together, will make it a reality. 

You might be interested in reading Adam Lambert: The Quest for Platinum its a great article with some details on Adam's rise to fame, and a look at his album sales. A must read for all Glamberts.

Adam has dropped hints about the new songs; he has been co-writing and recording.  He has also mentioned the many producers and songwriters he’s working with, and spoke about the vibe and style of music, which he is after, and wants to record. 

Adam Lambert has control on the overall creative process on his next album, and as he mentioned many times, he wants this to be a in your face kind of album, with a direct punch and hit, while having more feeling and soul on his songs. 

With Nile Rodgers as a collaborating mentor on the creative process and songwriting, Adam Lambert is bound to come out with some sure fire hits on his new album. 

Adam Lambert and Nile Rodgers together is studio Alchemy.

Amy Winehouse has cancelled up coming concerts in Istanbul and Athens after the onstage meltdown that happened in Belgrade. Winehouse appeared to be dis-oriented and confused as she stumbled and mumbled through a short set of songs.

Amy was on a small tour, to test her stability and stamina in live performances, as part of her recovery on the road back to music. During her performance in Belgrade, which was a crowd of 20,000 she was booed off the stage for her lack of showmanship and ability to perform at the concert.


Amy Winehouse has returned home to London, where she will continue to work on her health.

The Rehab singer has not been a stranger to public mishaps and much reported erratic behavior due to substance abuse.

Amy Winehouse released her debut album "Frank" in 2003 followed by her successful second album "Back to Black".

Amy received 5 Grammy nominations and won five awards for her Back to Black album.

Adam Lambert: The Quest for Platinum

Adam Lambert, the successful runner up from American Idol (Season 8) is on a quest for platinum. Adam's debut album "For Year Entertainment" is close to reaching platinum status in the US. As Adam is recording his follow up album, he is hoping to reach that platinum sales plateau, which is within reach with over 800,000 units sold already.

Whataya Want From Me is one of the best selling singles from his album "For Your Entertainment" selling over 1,6 million copies in the US alone. It is a great classic pop rock song, that really makes Adam Lambert shine as a vocalist and performer. The song has also earned him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. 

For Your Entertainment Track Listing:
  1. Music Again
  2. For Your Entertainment
  3. Whataya Want from Me
  4. Strut
  5. Soaked

  7. A Loaded Smile
  8. If I Had you
  9. Pick U Up
  10. Fever
  11. Sleepwalker
  12. Aftermath
  13. Broken Open

Life on the Front Stage:
Adam is no stranger to the stage, he has been a public performer since he was a young boy. Performing as a stage actor, he has performed in many onstage musicals and toured before he became famous as a recording artist. All the plays and musicals, just added as training for a life in music. This is proof, that Adam Lambert is not a fly by night singing contest finalist. (Sarcastic pun intended).

In 2009 Adam decided to try out for American Idol (Season 8) which proved to be quite beneficial to him. It was predicted early in the season, by the judges, that Adam would go to the finals. Adam did go to the final and finished as the runner up. Through out the season 8 Adam performed a great mixture of pop and classic rock songs, which suited him well for his vocal style and performance.

During American Idol an apparent smear campaign was conducted against him, with some publishing photos of Lambert and another male being intimate. Adam admitted his sexual orientation and stated he was not ashamed nor, did he have anything to hide. Adam handled the situation in a very diplomatic way, and continued the season, and it did not effect his ratings as a singer and performer on American Idol.

Quest for Platinum:
Currently Adam Lambert is recording his second album in the studio, which is rumored to be a great album to come. With his vocal style and panache this is bound to be a much anticipated follow up album.
Adam Lambert possess all the qualities of a star performer, and successful one at that. With his flamboyant style, attitude and charisma he will be a successful artist always.

Adam Lambert is the male version of Lady Gaga all the elements are there, from vocals and style to marketing and performing.

Will Adam Lambert's debut album "For Your Entertainment" reach Platinum sales status before he releases his next album? We hope it does, he is an artist that deserves to cross the finish line.

Adam Lambert's album sales to date are approximately over 800,000 in the US, another 200,000 units need to be sold to have the RIAA certification of Platinum.
