SINGLE REVIEW: Adam Lambert – Feel Something 

Whilst Adam Lambert has been on the road with Queen he’s been facing a lot of internal identity and mental health issues. Constantly questioning, What’s next? Do I want to continue? And what music do I even want to make anymore? They are all very daunting and big questions for anyone to ask, and especially for someone who is so prominent in the spotlight. After evaluating what would be best for him he decided to leave his management and label so he could start fresh and create something that was genuine to that artist he wanted to be. With his fourth studio album soon to be announced and the lead single to be released shortly, he’s decided to release a track from the album to share this new structured artistry and sound. ‘Feel Something’ is a stripped back and gospel inspired ballad that hears him delivering beautiful vocals and a self evaluating storyline. The heartbreaking chorus hears him confessing; “I don’t need to feel love, I just wanna feel something. If it’s never enough at least it’s better than nothing”. Before leading into an emotionally charged verse which reflects on his inner monologue even deeper. “I’ve grown with the pain, bathed in the lonely. All I want in this moment is someone to hold me”. The production is quite different to anything we’ve heard him do before and further strips back the ballad sound we’ve become accustomed to. It sounds more like a Sam Smith song than a track you would expect from Lambert, and that’s not a bad thing. It’s really interesting to hear him evolving as an artist and opening up about his insecurities and being so vulnerable. Prepare for more heartbreaking songs soon.
