23, 2009
TITLE SINGLE NOW AT RADIO






LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- With his out-of-this-world vocal range and
unique musical style, Adam Lambert is the ultra-glam, rock superstar that has
America hooked. On Monday, Nov 23, Adam will unleash one of the most highly
anticipated debut albums, "For Your Entertainment," on 19 Recordings/RCA. The
record garnered contributions from such innovative artists as Lady Gaga, P!nk,
Muse, Justin Hawkins formerly of The Darkness and Rivers Cuomo of Weezer. 

Millions of fans watched Lambert's stunning performances on the eighth season
of "American Idol" and now those millions of fans are waiting for the release
of the album and Adam's first single, which Adam introduced on Ryan Seacrest's
radio show Oct. 30. "For Your Entertainment" was written by Claude Kelly
("Circus" by Britney Spears) and Dr. Luke ("I Kissed A Girl" by Katy Perry and
"Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne, "Right Round" by Flo Rida, along with multiple
singles by Kelly Clarkson) and produced by Dr. Luke.

"I feel so lucky to have been granted true opportunity to work with some of
the top producers and writers in popular music," Says Adam. "This album is a
reflection of their genius and the collaborative energy that they were
gracious enough to share with me."

The credits on Lambert's first album read like a list of the hottest artists
in the music business. Lady Gaga, long cited as a major influence on Adam,
c-wrote the track "Fever" with producer Jeff Bhasker. P!nk is a co-writer on
"Whataya Want From Me," along with Sweden's Max Martin and Johan Shellback.
Matthew Bellamy, of the British prog rock/eletronica band Muse, one of Adam's
favorite groups, wrote "Soaked." 

Justin Hawkins, who was lead singer of the acclaimed British quartet the
Darkness, wrote the lead track on the album, "Music Again." Rivers Cuomo,
co-founder, lead singer and principal songwriter for Weezer, is one of the
writers on "Pick U Up," along with Lambert and Greg Wells ("I Do Not Hook Up,"
Kelly Clarkson).

There are other stellar names featured in the credits on Adam's debut release.
Rock goddess Linda Perry, responsible for hits like "Beautiful" by Christina
Aguilera and "Get The Party Started" by P!nk, is the writer and producer of "A
Loaded Smile." Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, whose credits include "Bleeding
Love" for Leona Lewis and "Halo" for Beyonce, wrote and produced
"Sleepwalker." 

Adam co-wrote four of the songs on his album. In addition to "Pick U Up," Adam
penned "Strut" with Greg Wells and "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi;
"Aftermath" with Alisan Porter, Ferras and Ely Rise; and "Broken Open" with
Wells and Evan Bogart (whose credits include "S.O.S." by Rihanna and "Jai Ho!
(You Are My Destiny)" from "Slumdog Millionaire." 

Four of the tracks on "For Your Entertainment" are produced by Rob Cavallo,
the A-list producer who has worked with Green Day, My Chemical Romance, David
Cook, Alanis Morisette, Chris Isaak, Paramore, Jewel, Shinedown and Dave
Matthews Band. Cavallo produced "Music Again," "Soaked," "Sure Fire Winners"
and the bonus track, "Time For Miracles," from the soundtrack to the new
motion picture, "2012."
