Adam Lambert has opened up about his highly-anticipated fourth LP in a new interview. “Obviously, Queen really inspired me,” he told Attitude magazine of the legendary band he’s fronted since 2009. “I don’t think this album is genre-specific. I think there are a lot of different influences on it," Lambert added. "There’s rock, there’s FUNK, there’s soul, there’s disco, Seventies singer-songwriter pop and some Eighties flavours, too. That being said, there are a lot of modern influences as well, so it’s sort of a fusion."
The singer was also asked to comment on Freddie Mercury being closeted. “I don’t know how ‘in the closet’ Freddie actually was,” the former American Idol contestant replied. “There were interviews where they were asking if he was gay and he was like, ‘Yeah as a daffodil…gay as a daffodil.”
