Great, Long Twitter Party!!
how are you after the release of new eyes?
I’m thrilled! This whole album was a long time in the making and it’s def a sonic exploration for me.
Hi Adam! I love New Eyes! Why "green color" in the video?
Green represents life. (To me anyway) it represents a handful of other emotions/things too.
When are we going to hear more about the rest? 😋
When I’m ready to put out another song. Hahah
What inspired you to make #NewEyes? (I'm in love with this song 😍)
I wanted to create a track that had some contrast between the moody heaviness that loneliness leaves behind and the lifted euphoria of new romance.
What themes/patterns from your life inspired the sound of Velvet/New Eyes?
Velvet as a whole is def inspired by retro vibes but it’s not limited to one genre or tempo- there will be a strong variety as usual w all my albums. I think I just started listening to way more classic songs and fell back in love w the good old days.
leah // #neweyes
is there a story behind new eyes?
The idea is that each of the characters in the video are discovering or rediscovering a passion. Enchanted items are placed in each scene that act as a catalyst.

At the credit Joseph Lopez was “Lucy’s grandpa” is this somehow related to the song “Lucy” from TOH ????????
No. Lucy is slang for what Grandpa uses to reopen his jaded eyes.
@adamlambert Love the production! Is the “ch” “ch.” sound during the guitar break, your voice or an instrument??
ADAM LAMBERT That’s me!!! HahHa. My voice. I kept hearing The Beatles’ Come Together production in my mind.
have you picked a favorite song from the album yet? if so, is it fast or slower paced?
I don’t really do favorites. Lol. I like different songs for different reasons. There’s one coming after the Queen your this summer that will make u dance - big bop.
@adamlambert How do you respond to those expressing angst about drug references in video?
ADAM LAMBERT Tune in Turn on Drop Out. Medicine comes in many forms.
Sibelius in LA
Replying to @adamlambert
Your vocals have evolved since idol days; how does that happen?
ADAM LAMBERT I think with age/experience. Not every song calls for ‘look at what I can do’ vocal acrobatics. Sometimes it’s more about creating a vibe.
@adamlambert Are there going to be any other music videos for the album for some songs?
ADAM LAMBERT RYes. this whole project will be presented to you differently than how I’ve done it in the past. New team, new label etc. I’ve rejected the standard formula on how this is done.
@adamlambert Do you have a 70s song that is a guilty pleasure?
ADAM LAMBERT I don’t feel guilty about the 70s. Lol. It was a MAJOR decade for music.
How challenging was it to make this album different from the last?
ADAM LAMBERT I knew I wanted to go down a different path. That wasn’t hard. It was defining the sound that took a while.
𝖆𝖑𝖊𝖝 ❤️ 👁
@adamlambert what’s the main message you wanted to say with the album?
ADAM LAMBERT R
The journey toward smoooooth sailing.
@adamlambert Love the wardrobe in the music video #NewEyes Would you keeping some of them for your solo tour near future?
ADAM LAMBERT Retweeted
Yeah some of my favorite designers have been doing lots of very 70s influenced looks lately. Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Sav Noir, Tom Ford are some of the fashions I am wearing. (And will keep wearing)
@adamlambert How many times did you changed your outfits in New Eyes?
Stream New Eyes 👁️ ✨
I'm curious but what do you mean by "get me wavy" in #NewEyes?
Style - Ashley
@adamlambert I see influences of surrealism and baroque art in your video. Is that a theme you plan to incorporate into #VELVET ?
Dreamlike and psychedelic were some of the words I was using when I conceptualized the video and photo shoot. So yes that will continue.
Do you have a certain amount of singles you want to release?
ADAM LAMBERT Retweeted Carly Schuyler
Yes. Planning on sharing more songs than usual before the whole album comes out.
Have you been more mellow lately?
@adamlambert Who are some of your favorite artists who inspire your aesthetic?
Mick Jagger, Alessandro Michele, Lenny Kravitz
Sanneee #NewEyes 👁 💚
@adamlambert are you planning on doing a solo tour with this next album? ☺️💚
That’s the goal
A L E J A N D R O
@adamlambert Do you feel more freedom with this new project?
I mean you’ve a new team, new label and I feel you so much happier.
Yes!! also because I am actively taking the pressure off of myself. Having ones music become popular is amazing. It validates. However, popularity shouldn’t determine its merit. I don’t like when music is a competitive sport. That’s not the point.
Sounds good to me! What has been the best part of making this album?
Not answering to anyone sitting behind a desk in an office.
@adamlambert any surprises coming up that we should be excited about?
ADAM LAMBERT Retweeted Allie
Well if I told you, they wouldn’t be surprises.
@adamlambert oh honey...outside validation feels good yes; but ultimately happiness is about what you make of your experiences 😘
ADAM LAMBERT That’s just it! I’m shifting my focus inward and finding joy in the creative process, not in the mass approval.
@adamlambert You said you don't like when music is a competitive sport. Do you think the record industry has gotten any better or worse since your last album?
They’re an industry. It’s a business. Don’t get me wrong- I respect the players, but the game can overshadow the art in some cases. That’s when I get frustrated.
Were you jumping for joy this morning with so much positive feedback this morning? #NewEyes
ADAM LAMBERT I’m THRILLED. I hope it fills your ears w euphoria and gives u a hug.
@adamlambert have you thought of concepts for merch yet?
@adamlambert are you going to come to Minnesota for your solo tour??
ADAM LAMBERT Retweeted Tours not booked yet. Too early
𝒆𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒂 STREAM #NewEyes
so when they will be booked? we’re waiting
I’ve only put out the first single!! Hahah. Patience !
Will you sing New Eyes on QAL tour @adamlambert ?
ADAM LAMBERT Not sure. We haven’t started rehearsals yet.
@adamlambert are you looking forward to singing at the American Idol finale ? 😃
ADAM LAMBERT Retweeted thegoodrebel
Yes!! Should be fun!
@adamlambert planned your outfit ideas for QAL yet???
Working w a designer this time!!!! Excited!
Looove when the chorus kicks in. That big low note. I thought you had horns playing.
Interesting! this track is mainly live instrumentation. The big downbeat chord is a mix of Bass, Guitar, and Keys. The chorus vocals are 3 of me (for width) singing the melody in breathy falsetto and Paris (co-writer) a harmony above.
𝒆𝒎𝒊𝒍𝒊𝒂 STREAM #NewEyes
did your parents like #NewEyes?
Yes! Dad said it reminded him of John Lennon’s solo stuff which from him is a MAJOR compliment.
@adamlambert Sooo the first album has three words, second has one word, third has three words, fourth has one word. Was it planned?
Certainly not planned. Lol.
Have u been to an early showing of the new Elton John movie?
ADAM LAMBERT Retweeted Matty Marchant
No not yet but it looks Brilliant
@adamlambert did you know right away that #NewEyes would be the lead single?
No. In fact, some will say there are other songs that are more obvious ‘hits’. But I trusted my gut in wanting to first put out a romantic song that best summed up where i was at this moment in time. in love.
what do you think about Taylor's reaction to new eyes?
Was very flattered! she’s major.
@adamlambert i kind of love that the industry doesn’t have “rules” right now and that there is more choice in how artists want to present their music to the masses 🖤
I completely agree. It’s actually a very liberating period.
𝚊𝚞𝚛𝚘𝚛𝚎 𝚋𝚘𝚛𝚎𝚊𝚕𝚎 #𝙽𝚎𝚠𝙴𝚢𝚎𝚜
Will your new album be silimilar to FYE or is it something different???
@adamlambert which do you prefer.. Time in the studio or time on tour?
I like being onstage the most.
Denny K. Schuldt
@adamlambert I thought Feel Something was the first single. Is it part of the new album?
ADAM LAMBERT Retweeted Denny K. Schuldt
It wasn’t a single in terms of music video, promotion etc. it was a sneak preview
n d @mesmoreyes
@adamlambert do you feel this album will be more or less eclectic then your previous ones, or is velvet like a cohesive mini (musical) series almost telling a story or revealing a journey?
I think it’s the most cohesive album of mine yet. Also executive produced by me and every track is co-written by me. This is the album I always wanted to make.
Ok guys!!! Thank u for the great questions!!!! Love ya! Tune into Idol Sunday night!

Magical potions and mysterious gazes populate new Velvet single clip
Adam Lambert mines a retro Seventies vibe in his new video for “New Eyes.” The song will appear on his forthcoming fourth album Velvet, which doesn’t have a release date yet but will be available through independent label Empire.
In the new Miles & AJ-directed clip, Lambert hangs out and performs in a club, while a number of stories unfold that are fueled by trippy, mysterious green glowing potions. A couple becomes intoxicated by an amorous perfume that leads to a passionate kiss, another drops a neon-lit tablet onto their tongue and a glowing vinyl record also seems to wield mystical powers, all of which seem to open them to new possibilities./
Lambert’s sultry vocals reach falsetto heights as he sings about being taken by the romantic spell of someone’s mysterious gaze and the chemistry between them. “I really wasn’t seeing all the things I should see/Damn, I was getting jaded ’til the day you looked at me,” he croons. “You got those new eyes, honey/Virgin-like blue skies sunny/Everything that you try/Everything gets you high, baby.” The video ends with a teaser that the story is “to be continued.”
“I wanted my first single to reflect my current state of mind and to bring listeners into a romantic, earthy vibe,” the singer said in a statement. “‘New Eyes’ is a love letter to innocence and to finding new passions.”
Lambert, Paris Carney and Jamie Sierota wrote the Sierota-produced “New Eyes,” which follows the release of Velvet track “Feel Something.“
