Adam Lambert: Acoustic Album in the Works!

Adam Lambert: Acoustic Album in the Works!

Adam Lambert is planning to release an acoustic album for the holiday season!

The 28-year-old entertainer dished to Aussie TV presenter Dylan Lewis that he’s hoping to have the record out soon – “Probably around Thanksgiving time,” Adam dished, “November, December.”

“We went around Europe in the earlier part of this year…and we did a lot of promo, so I had Monte, my guitar player, and my drummer at the time,” Adam explained. “We just did very stripped-back versions of the songs. We got our hands on some of those recordings. Then we also recorded some of the stuff from the actual Glam Nation Tour, so it’s going to be a mix of both.”

Adam also said that a second album is on the way – he hopes it’ll be out by spring or summer of next year!

UPDATE: Adam tweeted, “Oh and just to clear up a bit of a misunderstanding, I’m not releasing a full acoustic album. An EP. 3-5 tunes. :)”

    Is Monty that weird looking “straight” guy he’s always kissing and grinding on at his concerts?

  • Jase


  • Dan

    I wonder how fast you guys are going to bury this comment in thumbs downs until it’s hidden…

    But I don’t like Adam Lambert, especially after his on-stage performance kiss. It’s one thing to be out of the closet, but another to be using your sexuality as a cheap trick to promote your career.

  • Nefret

    @sillyme: LOL no, that’s Tommy, the bass player. “Monty” is Monte Pittman (Madonna’s guitarist).

  • Jasna

    No that’s his bass player Tommy

  • XXXO

    It’s Monte, not Monty…

  • mquincy


    lol no, that’s his bass player tommy. Monte (correct spelling) is Monte Pittman – an amazing guitarist for both Adam and Madonna

  • Kt

    Yay!!! Cannot wait!! I <3 Adam!!

  • Kt

    Yay!!! Cannot wait!! I <3 Adam!!

  • tamo

    Its so funny how he became the successful one and the guy who beat him on AMerican Idol has disappeared

  • MC

    Yeah, I’m kind of excited about this release. Lambert has an incredible voice.

  • XXXO

    @Dan: What bothers me is when people like you can’t separate sexuality with orientation.

    If Adam was straight, he would still be just as sexual. He’s a sexual person. He’s also a sweet person, an eloquent person etc. etc.

    His sexuality doesn’t define him.

    If the song is about sexual dominance, he’s gonna get down n dirrty. If it’s a song like Broken Open, he’s gonna emote with emotion. Performance Artists and Theatrical portray their lyrics to the core, that’s what appeals them to people who enjoy all-round and larger than life performers like that.

    If you don’t enjoy sensual or sexual performers that’s cool but you can’t pic n mix. Janet Jackson, Brit, Xtina, Shakira, Madonna, Riri, Justin…………America is used to seeing female performers be sexual onstage and in their videos so much that y’all don’t even notice it no more. Justin grinded his female dancer from behind onstage and it didn’t even make the news. Why do you think Adam’s does? I don’t even need to type it out…..

  • :D


    jared you’re running out of glambert pics arent ya lol. feel free to use any of the images in my photostream

    none of them are copyrited and im always updating :-) loveya <33

  • Leila

    @Dan: Dan.

    This is from before Adam was famous:

    What say you?

    He’s always been a bit of a wildchild. At least he hasn’t changed himself.

  • Runaway HQ

    I’d buy that.

  • this is

    Monte Pittman –

    Tommy Joe –


    Cool :)
    More artists should release an Unplugged album.

  • Peter

    @Dan: Do you feel the same way about female performers? If not….your comment is lopsided.

    If you do only listen to/watch 1 type of performer, fair enough. More for those who appreciate dimensional vocalists who give you something to listen to, something to look at and something to feel.

  • taboo

    I was hoping he would do this, he sounds f**ing amazing acoustic

  • Dan

    @XXXO: Actually, his sexuality does define him. His fame was boosted from the on screen kiss just like Taylor Swift’s Kayne incident boosted hers. He might be talented, but I find him repulsive. It’s different to sing about sexual things and grind than to shove your tongue down someone’s throat during a concert. It’s not even the male on male, it’s the fact that it was out of nowhere and he obviously did it to get some attention.

    @Leila: People need to change, change isn’t entirely bad. Are you saying it’s something to be proud of if you’re the exact same after success and years of maturity? That’s something to be ashamed of. Responsibility and maturity should allow for some positive change…

  • Londoner

    As long as the UK is not left ’til last.

  • TT

    @Dan: You must be from the older generation. It’s a shame you are ashamed of sexuality. Sexuality is nothing I repeat NOTHING to be ashamed of.

    Your argument has no ground as the AMA kiss actually stunted his career for a while. Alas, America needed that wake up call. It finally got people talking about the double standards they weren’t even aware of until then.

    If a 3-second kiss is all you remember from a 16-set concert, that shows up your mindset more than anything.


    DAN, if you dig it, cool. if you don’t, simply focus your interest elsewhere. no one’s forcing you to go to his gigs boo lol

  • Mojo

    AWESOME! :)

  • Yasmin

    finally ♥ him

  • dakota

    No, Monte is his guitar player and music director. The totally adorable blonde that he kisses periodically is Tommy Joe Ratliff, his bass player.

    @Dan You’re obviously not a fan and not his target audience. Not sure what you’re trying to start but you’re wasting your time if you think Adam Lambert would ever change himself just cause some stranger is a little bit frigid and thrown off by raw s.e.x.

    The JBros repulse me but they have their own little fanbase, whatever. I don’t even waste my time typing about them.

  • Bruce

    Dan you sound very old school. I get the feeling you are of an older generation? Just a guess by your comments. Myself and Adam are of a younger generation where sexuality whether it be homo or hetero is nothing shameful or to be closeted. As you can see in any of the videos his fans love the “tongue diving” and encourage it. He’s only done it 2x. The second time in Australia his fans kept begging for it in the meet and greet. Anyone who spends 12 plus hours and sometimes camped over night to get front row at a general admission concert would love some kissing. To use the word repulsed speaks of much deeper issues. Something tells me either fear or jealousy. People of an older generation probably don’t get it and quite frankly I don’t think Adam cares if you do or not.

  • LOL

    funny video

  • Seth

    @sillyme: Monte is the older one, longtime friend, like an Uncle to him.

    He’s also Madonna’s guitar player and longtime friend. Mindblowing on the guitar. Tommy’s alright, but Monte’s genius.

  • Ben

    “I included ladies in the term dudes”

    lol @ this interviewer

  • Bob’s Big Boy

    milkin’ it

  • Jasnasa

    Luv him !!!!!!!!!

  • Raoul

    If GODBERT changed a single thing about himself, I can honestly say I would no longer be a fan. Peaceout.

  • Plugged

    ’bout time Adam got unplugged


    lmfao finaaaaally.

    we was practically begging for it /NO shame. a ton of us started a campaign for an acoustic b-side after hearing his live set live
    i’d like to think this was partly our doing ;)

  • Damien

    @Plugged: Was that supposed to be a gay joke? : / It doesn’t work that way when you’re a Top. FAIL.

  • bahahaha

    Monte’s the more talented one (no offence Tommy) with a wife and family.
    Tommy’s the little quirky blonde.

  • Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    YES!!!! He listened to me. ;) Great idea.

  • Stacy

    He looks sooo young in this early pic, before he was runner-up on Idol.

  • Jonte

    @:D:Quit pimping out your Flickr stream you wh0~re.

    JK :P

    I love your Godney photos, I have a soft spot for Brit.

  • ;)

    @Stacy: You spelt winner wrong.

  • orly


    I did though, months back! ;D

  • Isaac

    @Bob’s Big Boy: Why would you not milk talent whilst givin your fans what they want

  • JLM

    @sillyme: No that is Tommy and he is almost as gorgeous as Adam, but straight. Monte is the lead guitarist and also plays with Prong and Madonna. He kicks butt!!

  • Jenn

    This is fantastic news. Adam accoustic is like heaven to my ears!! I love this man’s voice anytime, but stripped down it is truly phenomenal.

  • björkson

    RE what @Dan said.

    I remember when Glambert sang Satisfaction on Idol and everyone FREAKED OUT b/c it was “so sexual!” and “in your face!” at that time LOLOL.

    Every other performance he did on that show got people really talking since a) they’d never seen that type of thing on that show and b) they’d never seen someone –who was not a female or a hetero male– perform like that, unless they were [acting] in a film or were dead rockstars locked away safe in history.

    Now when you look back, it’s not controversial at ALL nor are his other ott performances. They’re actually tame, and just campy and fun and out there. I remember when someone sent me a YT link of him performing Crawl Thru Fire at The Zodiac Show and it was so sexual and crazy to me my jaw was open (the dancers, the fire, all of it). I had to keep pausing the vid because the sexual display was TOO much. But now when you watch it back, it’s not like that at all and I feel embarrassed I once felt that way, lol.

    You have people like Gaga (and, DON’T GET ME WRONG, I bought her songs and I know she is mad talented) who say things like, “I would pray to God to make me weird like my Idols” and it really rubs me up the wrong way. When you have people who actually had a hard time because they were naturally weird and then you have pop stars like her or eg. Katy Perry saying, “I’m weird” — no you’re a white generic goodlooking female who likes to act kooky. If you were naturally eccentric you wouldn’t have to tell people that. I can’t deal with pretentious people like that.

    I like and am usually drawn to people who accidently do iconic things and subconsciously path the way cause it’s just an extension to their being. Sometimes you don’t realize until years later.

  • chrisbr

    @Dan: So, you must not like any of the women on the awards shows either… they are doing the same thing, pushing their sexuality… or do you simply have an aversion to sexual men. I happen to like sexual men, and their orientation has little to do with me.

  • Bruce

    I find it really interesting that people get so bent out of shape over sexuality or just plain old sex in general but don’t blink in eye over violence and war. The news shows clips of people being shot and murdered, corpses on the streets etc and people yawn. Parents buy their children 1st person shooter video games and don’t think twice. Give the kid a gun but don’t let them see a sex scene because their mind might be corrupted – wtf? Like I said above a lot of it is the older generation and yes some of the older generation in the gay community too. Then you have people like Ms Bar Jolie GaGa & Dan who want to mold people into what they want them to be and not who they are. Adam Lambert just said the most perfect quote in a recent interview. “I have come from the belief that hiding something from people and manipulating what they think of you is far more offensive and disrespectful than just being upfront and being who you are.”
    Apparently people like Dan and Jolie GaGa don’t believe in accepting people for who they are but would rather force them to behave or sing the way they would like them to. Everyone is different and Adam Lambert has stated from the beginning that he never fit in and was always the “weird” kid. Why do you want to make him vanilla like yourself?

  • AlexaKeaton


    that’s part of his appeal. there are a lot of good singers and songwriters out there, it takes more than that. i can name 10 bl00dy brilliant vocalists who don’t excite me. i can’t pinpoint what it is that makes someone exciting but i know i find his unapologetic swagger/flamboyance/sexual bravado hot/thrilling/refreshing.

    if you don’t like sexy ~timez, go listen to susan boyle lol. but i bet you don’t have that same opinion about women or straight men.
