Adam Lambert is back with his first release since his 2017’s “Two Fux.” Lambert released his new song “Feel Something” on Friday, which is slated for his upcoming album and serves as a preview of what’s to come.
Written by Lambert, Benedict Cork and Josh Cumbee, the achingly yearning ballad showcases Lambert’s acrobatic vocal range. “I’ve been leaving my heart in all the wrong places,” he sings. “”Took it back way too soon when I should’ve been patient.” Later, he confesses on the chorus, where a backing chorus buoys the sentiment, “I don’t need to feel love, I just want to feel something/ If it’s never enough, at least it’s better than nothing/ After everyone I’ve lost and ever kiss I wasted/ I don’t, I don’t need to feel love, just want to feel something.”
“The life of a bachelor can be a laugh, with plenty of flings, but after awhile it starts to feel empty,” Adam says of the song’s inspiration. “Between frustrations with my career and many lost connections, I felt numb and though I wanted to fall in love, I knew I wasn’t ready. That’s what inspired me to cry out, ‘I don’t need to feel love, I just want to feel something!’ It was in this realization that I took my first step toward self-care and nursing my spirit back to health.” Listen to the impressive track below.
