And in some moments, looking back, that might have been a disservice to the overall presentation of the song. It’s dramatic and extravagant in all the right ways, in a way that feels as true to the original as it does to his own sense of showmanship. And, with "Mad About the Boy," Lamber turns a little song about a boy into a soaring Bond-theme ballad that never abandons its core of vulnerability.

Notwithstanding the Queen-like a capella intro, he not only captures the poignant intimacy and stark vulnerability in Eilish’s lyrics, but takes it a step further. Soon, in an upcoming book, the singer will tell his full story for the first time in an upcoming book. Songs range from the more recent, Pink's 'My Attic', Billie Eilish's 'Getting Older', an epic rock re-imagining of Lana Del Rey's 'West Coast', to the beautiful interpretation of Noel Coward's classic 'Mad About The Boy'. Currently, Lambert is working on writing a musical, which will feature original songs from a stellar lineup of collaborators.High Drama’, is a wonderfully diverse collection of covers with a twist, held together by Adam’s once-in-a-generation voice and trademark flair. When I was a teenager, for example, before I came out, when I was kind of coming to terms with my sexuality, I was watching Will and Grace, and loving it and watching it like with the whole family, and we were all laughing, all having a good time.

Despite a title that suggests a zany rom-com, He Went That Way actually aims its dainty pistol at simmering neo-noir territory, but the action fizzles rather than thrills.

d. lang or Kelly Clarkson, but High Drama makes it easy to imagine an alternate timeline where he made a name for himself as a covers artist. These arrangements of "Holding Out for a Hero" and "Chandelier" suck out the rhythmic qualities of the originals in favor of that trademark stomp. Lambert makes the most of his careful selection of songs, helped along the way by an impressive roster of producers that includes Tommy English and Andrew Wells.

A notable standout among those more true-to-source tracks is his Duran Duran cut, “Ordinary World,” in which he hews close to the original but runs with the opportunity to flex his incredible vocal range.Few have the power and range of Lambert’s vocals, as evidenced by his recruitment to front Queen, a role he’s tackled with poise. Renowned for re-imagining songs from American Idol to his stirring viral hit with Cher's "Believe", Adam Lambert - the Grammy-nominated pop icon, LGBTQ trailblazer and Queen frontman - brings you High Drama, a wonderfully diverse collection of covers with a twist, held together by Adam’s once-in-a-generation voice and trademark flair. If we're talking about "Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me," what's interesting is one of the things that makes that original record so great is the groove. Mad About the Boy” was released as the lead single from the album on October 7, 2022 with “Ordinary World” released as the second on December 13, 2022.

The all-fabulous star takes the liberties he should, like when inserting mind-hijacking dance beats to songs such as "Sex On Fire. That balance is the anatomy of a cover song: a stylised production that borrows from an artist the vitals and encases them in a fleshier, fresher sound.Baltin: Was there one moment where you really noticed your voice changing and it allowed you to convey different emotions? Lambert first teased the album title and it’s content of eleven cover songs on This Morning on December 2, 2022.

I heard, because I know Ilsey quite well, so I heard the original and I just thought, "Oh, this is so beautiful. On his cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero,” the take is nearly unrecognizable from the original; it’s more in the proggy direction of Muse’s “Uprising. And so it's interesting because I didn't even think about it consciously but yeah, almost all of the artists on the album were people that have had like their own moment, their own sound.Tracks like "Holding Out For A Hero," the Bonnie Tyler '80s classic, and Sia's hit "Chandelier" ooze Lambert's rocket-high falsettos and thunderous instrumentation. The result, High Drama, (★★★★☆) is more than a throwback to his Idol origins — it’s the kind of collection that could only have been put together and delivered by someone confident in his identity as an artist. The album is a impressive journey through Lambert’s skillset as a cover artist, as he delivers his own versions of songs such as Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero,” Sia’s “Chandelier,” Billie Eilish’s “Getting Older,” Duran Duran’s “ Ordinary World,” and many more. Compare that with Lambert’s twist on SIA’s “Chandelier,” which is a little closer to the original but takes things in a more alternative post-grunge direction.
