The whistle-laden house track is due out on April 21.

Adam Lambert's long-awaited third album The Original High is due out later this year, with a lead single coming in April. On Monday morning (Mar. 23), the pop star clued in his loyal army of Glamberts on the sound of that single, which is titled "Ghost Town" (no, not "Ghosttown," that's Madonna's next single!).

Listen to a snippet of Lambert's whistle-strewn new tune "Ghost Town," which he posted on Instagram:

 

GHOST TOWN. APRIL 21st.

Lambert announced that the new track will be arriving on April 21, after revealing to Billboard in January that his new album will be his first on Warner Bros Records. The Original High will be executive produced by Max Martin and Shellback.

In Defense of Adam Lambert's 'Trespassing': Why His Last Album Should Be Rediscovered

"I think people are going to be really surprised," said Lambert in January. "The album feels like a new era for me -- emotionally, lyrically, sonically. It feels fresh, it feels new. It's still me. It's still stuff that fans know and love but it's a new chapter 100 percent."

In 2012, Lambert's sophomore album Trespassing made the American Idol runner-up the first openly gay male artist to top the Billboard 200 albums chart. Since then, Lambert split his RCA Records and toured the world with Queen.
