Adam Lambert record deal announced on some day as ‘American Idol’ return

Adam -Is today turning out to be a great one for Adam Lambert fans? It certainly seems like it. You likely knew already that the former “American Idol” star was returning to the show as a judge for tonight’s new episode, but to go along with that, we also have the news right now that he has signed a new record deal to go along with it!

In a new story from Billboard, it is revealed that Adam has a new report deal with Warner Records, and this is something that has been in the works almost immediately after the singer parted ways with RCA following two records that he did there. Specifically, he tells the website that this helped to make the transition so much easier:

“The next day, Warner Bros. contacted us, which I thought was pretty amazing and it was a kind of relief … It was just a scary thing to make that announcement to the world.”

Adam has been working with producers Max Martin and Shellback on new music, which could be released over time in the months ahead. These two were key components in “If I Had You” and “Whataya Want From Me,” two of his biggest hits from his major-label debut “For Your Entertainment.”

Clearly, this is great news for both Adam and his fans, and the timing of this story is pretty smart, given that he will be in the news today more than he has been in America in a little while. He is also still in the process of touring with the legendary band Queen.
