Adam Lambert walks away from his record label. The popular singer, who gained much fame for his appearance on American Idol and known for his hit songs Wahtaya Want From Me and For Your Entertainment left over a dispute of being push into recording a 1980s cover songs.
He has though released two albums with RCA but now now over this disagreement he has decided to end the contract. He is insisting that the spilt comes down to “the oft-cited ‘creative differences’”.
In an open letter to The Hollywood Reporter, he writes,
“I’ve had an amazing few years working with the team at Rca; I admire all of them a great deal… That said, at this point, we are indeed having the oft-cited ‘creative differences’ as to what my next project will be… The label is pushing for an (’80s) covers album, and feels that this is the only kind of release they are prepared to support. While there are lots of great songs from that decade, my heart is simply not in doing a covers album.”
Lambert also reveals that he is in the works writing new songs, and hopes to share it with fans soon upon release. He adds,
“I am already deep into writing new material with some very talented colleagues for a brand new album, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this new sound & direction. This music is where my heart is, and I believe that is what my fans want to hear… I am excited to find a new label team who shares this vision.”
