“American Idol” fans are getting their fill this week: Not only is Season 8 winner Kris Allen’s self-titled album released today, but runner-up Adam Lambert’s debut “For Your Entertainment” is now streaming in full via MySpace, a week ahead of hitting shelves.
Of course, the world has already been exposed to the title track, the new-wavy electro-cool dance tune that came on the heels of his “2012” theme “Time for Miracles.” The latter track caps of this set.
The 19 Recordings/RCA set will be released on Nov. 23, next week, the Monday before Thanksgiving. As previously reported, Lambert collaborated with Dr. Luke, AI judge Kara DioGuardi, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, Pink, Lady GaGa, Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, Rob Cavallo and The Darkness’ Justin Hawkins.
HitFix music blogger Melinda Newman had a chance to chat with Lambert recently, too, and even went so far as to say that he’ll “wear his fame well.” Check out her initial impressions of that interview here.
Check in early next week for Newman’s complete review of this glamorous set. All we can say for now is there’s a lot to take in.
