While he may be known for his high-energy pop-rock jams, Adam Lambert wants to show you that he can access his sensitive side as well. The pop singer’s new track “Feel Something,” released today (Feb. 22) accomplishes just that.

The hazy song follows Lambert’s struggles with depression and anxiety, as he revealed in a note to his fans on Twitter. The pared-down production brings a new twist of simplicity to the singer’s sound, with a simple guitar and piano backing him up as Lambert sings, “I built all these walls so no one could break in/ Truth is, I miss those nights when my heart could be naked.”

In his message to fans, Lambert wrote that the song was reflective of a creative struggle he’s found himself in over the last few years. “I love making and performing music, but there have been many times where I’ve had to compromise on my artistic vision with executives making decisions based on money and not art,” he said. “I’m coming out of a dark period of second guessing my own artistry and having my mental health suffer because of it.”

“Feel Something” is the first taste of Lambert’s upcoming new album, which he says will remain in the same emotional vein as this new song. “The tracks will chronicle the journey of taking responsibility for my own happiness and strength, and searching for intimacy,” he wrote. “Since writing this song, I’ve found the joy I was missing and I’m back in my power.”
