"Hers is like a post-apocalyptic love song, mid-tempo, and mine's like an existential dance goth rave thing," says Lambert.
Ghost towns are all the rage in pop these days: just a few weeks after Madonna announced that the power ballad "Ghosttown" would be the second single from her new Rebel Heart album, Adam Lambert released the trippy house tune "Ghost Town" as the lead single from his upcoming third album, The Original High. In a new interview with Billboard's Pop Shop Podcast, Lambert says that the similar titles of Madonna's single and his own new track are just a strange coincidence -- although that coincidence did make him panic when he initially realized that the Queen of Pop had her own "Ghosttown" to release.
When asked by Billboard's Keith Caulfield if he had thought about the clashing titles, Lambert replied, "Oh believe me, I thought about that for more than a second. When I found that out, my song was already finished, it had already been mixed, I had already kind of said, 'Hey, I think this is the first single,' and people were like, 'Yeah I think it is too.'
