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.
