‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert’s ‘Love Wins Over Glamour’ at Life Ball 2013

Adam LambertDo we have a new song from Adam Lambert? It certainly looks that way! While at the Life Ball event this weekend in Vienna (which is designed to raise awareness for AIDS and money to help fight against the disease), the former “American Idol” star, who may be under consideration to become a judge next season, debuted a full version of a song entitled “Love Wins Over Glamour.” Adam wrote on his Twitter that this song was written specifically for the event, so we don’t want to speculate yet as to whether or not this is intended to go on a future record, or if it will be released as a charity single at some point.

The first thing we have to talk about is that costume in the video below, which is fantastic and adds yet another international flavor to what was an international performance. The voice-overs in the middle of the song were a little distracting, but they may be important, and we don’t want to be one of those people who sits here and bashes something simply because we don’t understand the language.

It’s still going to take a few more listens to really get a sense of how much we like the song, but it has everything that we could ever ask for in an Adam Lambert track: Strong lyrics, a catchy beat, and an element that yields for great live performances. It also references in a sense his own signature style, and at the same time consciously admitting that while this may be important to him, it pales deeply in comparison to what he is really trying to say.

More analysis coming soon! For now, we want to hear from you: What do you think about this song from Adam? Be sure to share your thoughts below! If you want to read more about those “American Idol” judging rumors, be sure to head over to the link here.
