Adam Lambert Leaves Record Label Over "Creative Differences" And Promises New Music

15 July 2013, 13:55

The US singer says he refused to release an album of covers leading to his exit from RCA.

Adam Lambert has announced his decision to leave his record label after four years with them, citing "creative differences" as the reason for his departure.

The 'Never Close Our Eyes' singer confirmed this week that he has left RCA after disagreeing with their idea for him to release an album of eighties classic covers as his next album.

Adam returned with second album 'Trespassing' last year, the follow-up to his 2009 debut 'For Your Entertainment', both of which were released through RCA after his success on American Idol.

"I've had an amazing few years working with the team at RCA, I admire all of them a great deal and truly appreciate the energy & enthusiasm that went into making both 'Trespassing' and 'For Your Entertainment' successes," Adam writes in a letter to The Hollywood Reporter to clarify the situation. "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," Adam explains. "While there are lots of great songs from that decade, my heart is simply not in doing a covers album."

The US star went on to say he feels his fans want to hear new original music from him rather than covers, and confirm he is already deep into writing new material for his third solo album.

"This music is where my heart is, and I believe that is what my fans want to hear," Adam added. "So after careful consideration, I have made the decision to respectfully part ways with RCA."

RCA themselves have yet to comment on Adam Lambert's departure.

Adam Lambert also announced last week that he has been signed up by FOX to star on the new season of Glee.
