Adam Lambert is back with the new music video to just-released single “Ghost Town,” and if you enjoy emotive closeups of Adam Lambert, you are going to love this new visual. Watch the Hype Williams-directed clip below:
The beginning of the “Ghost Town” video immediately brings to mind Chris Isaak‘s iconic clip for “Wicked Game” — there’s less beach romance, sure, but just as much of an emphasis on smoldering black-and-white shots of the male singer looking very serious while crooning his song. Of course, that whistle breakdown eventually arrives, and a slew of male and female dancers join Lambert in their respective dance quadrants; by the end, Lambert has filled his “Ghost Town,” and a dance party breaks out.
“Ghost Town” previews The Original High, Lambert’s third album and the follow-up to 2012’s Trespassing. In a chat with Billboard, Lambert said that he will tour behind the new album (due out June 16 on Warner Bros.) “if people like this record,” after Trespassing “wasn’t quite the commercial success that we all had hoped it would be, which would have supported a tour. I’m really, really thankful that the fans ate it up, and that we debuted at No. 1 on the (Billboard 200) chart. That was lovely. I stand by the album.”
