Adam Lambert Feels ‘a Lot of Pressure’ as He’s Set to Record New Songs With Queen
The former ‘American Idol’ contestant felt the weight of expectation as he is expected to hit studio to lay down new tracks with the iconic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ hitmakers.
AceShowbiz –Queen will make new songs with Adam Lambert. Guitarist Brian May has announced that they are considering recording new music with former “American Idol” star Adam, 32 years after the band dropped “Innuendo”, their final album released in late frontman Freddie Mercury‘s lifetime.
“We have dabbled a little. It is just that you haven’t heard any of it. It would have to be something so special that we would feel we would want to launch it on the public,” Brian said on US radio.
Adam added, “It’s a lot of pressure if you think about it. If they’re going to put something out that’s new, it’s got to be at a certain level. It has to be the right thing. And I’ve always said, ‘Is it appropriate for me to be doing new material?’ I feel like it scares me.”
Talk about new Queen music will come as a surprise to fans, as Brian recently said he doesn’t think Queen will ever make an album of new songs with Adam because the band’s fans love Freddie too much. The legendary rock band have been touring with the “American Idol” runner-up since 2012 with their tours earning rave reviews and getting bigger and bigger.
There has been much talk and speculation about Queen recording their first LP of new material since Freddie died from AIDS in November 1991 at the age of just 45 and, although Brian, Adam and drummer Roger Taylor have laid down some potential songs in the studio, they have been deterred by Queen fans who are opposed to the idea.
In an interview with Total Guitar magazine, he said, “We have been in the studio. We did knock a few ideas around in the middle of one of those tours. But it just never quite reached the place where we felt it was going to be right. So we haven’t pursued it that far.”
“I really don’t know. But I think there’s a bit of a barrier there. I think if people see Queen on a record label, they still want it to be Freddie singing. It could be Jesus Christ on it, but they’d still want Freddie, and I don’t blame people for that. There are people on Instagram who get annoyed with me, ‘Why are you still carrying on without Freddie?’ And I go, ‘Don’t tell me what I should do! I do what I feel I should be doing.’ “
