Adam Mitchell Lambert eindigt in 2009 als verliezend finalist in American Idol. De zanger brengt in ons land verschillende singles uit, waaronder If I Had You (2010) en Better Than I Know Myself (2011). Toch haalt hij slechts met één nummer - Whataya Want From Me (2010, nummer 7) - de Top 40. In 2011 wordt hij gevraagd om als leadzanger voor Queen aan de slag te gaan. Met de Britse band gaat hij in 2014 en 2015 op wereldtour.

De zanger, die in 2012 zijn tweede studioalbum Trespassing uitbrengt, speelt een rol in de Amerikaanse muziek hitserie Glee, waar hij nummers van onder meer Madonna en Katy Perry nieuw leven inblaast. Samen met Nile Rodgers werkt hij mee aan het debuutalbum van Avicii op het nummer Lay Me Down.

In 2015 verschijnt het derde album van Lambert, The Original High. De eerste single, Ghost Town, groeit uit tot zijn grootste succes in ons land. In september wordt duidelijk dat Another Lonely Night zijn volgende single is.

Op 13 april 2016 begint hij het Europese gedeelte van zijn Original High Tour in Amsterdam. Een maand daarvoor verschijnt zijn nieuwste track, Welcome To My Show.


Songtekst

Cold as ice
And more bitter than a December
Winter night
That's how I treated you
And I know that I
I sometimes tend to lose my temper
And I cross the line
Yeah that's the truth

I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

[Chorus:]
Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

All along
I tried to pretend it didn't matter
If I was alone
But deep down I know
If you were gone
For even a day I wouldn't know which way to turn
Cause I'm lost without you

I know it gets hard sometimes
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say

[Chorus:]
Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

[Bridge:]
I get kind of dark
Let it go too far
I can be obnoxious at times
But try and see my heart
Cause I need you now
So don't let me down
You're the only thing in this world
I would die without

[Chorus:]
Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself

Cause if I wanted to go I would have gone by now,
But I really need you near me to
Keep my mind off the edge
If I wanted to leave I would have left by now
But you're the only one that knows me
Better than I know myself
