Trespassing Album Cover Art
mp3 only – full programme – running time: 40:39 minutes
Today celebrates a month since a number of Adam Lambert’s UK fans gathered together in London for a listening party of his new album, Trespassing.
The room where the Listening Party was held
The album became available elsewhere in the world on the 15th of May but will only be available in the UK in July. That didn’t stop his fans here, however, wanting to celebrate, along with the rest of the world, his amazing second album, which he executive produced. So, thanks for an amazing evening arranged by Lucy & @jeanjenie.
Essential equipment for the Listening Party!
Just how great this new album is, was proved a few days later, when on the 23rd of May, the album went straight in at number one on the coveted Billboard 200 chart in America. This was a first on another level for Adam Lambert too, being the first openly gay recording artist ever to do so.
In a recent interview with PressParty, he said: “”I didn’t know that it hadn’t been reached before so I was kind of surprised, but I felt honoured by that. I think it’s a big deal in a way. It’s a big deal about something that shouldn’t be a big deal…”
His fans, who are extremely loyal and supportive, are excited by these new firsts, and at the listening party, I had an opportunity to ask them why they like him so much and what they think of his new album, Trespassing.
In the excitement of the evening’s entertainment, chatting, quizzes, games, eating and drinking, and listening to the new album, I accidentally lost one of the recordings so a few days later, I went to re-record another of Adam’s ardent fan’s views for inclusion in the programme

I too had been lucky enough to have been gifted a copy of Trespassing by the wonderful Ruth, a fan from America – thank you so much, Ruth – but I had been holding off listening to it properly until the listening party and hearing it all the way through, that loud especially, was completely perfect.
Trespassing is undeniably a brilliant piece of pop art and certainly the best album I think I’ve ever heard, because there isn’t one song on there that I don’t like. One of the things that take it to a level impossible for other artists to reach, is of course, Adam Lambert’s exquisite voice. His vocal lines and harmonies are indeed, as one of his fans described, like an Aladdin’s cave full of stunning treasures.
I will be talking more about his voice in my next programme, which will be a vocal review of Trespassing.
In the meantime, thank you Adam, from all your UK fans for creating a pop musical feast for the soul, body and mind.
We can’t wait for July when the album will be available here and when we get to see you performing with Queen. As some of my teenage students have been saying: Sicknessss!
Here is the music video of Adam’s new single, Never Close Our Eyes, soon available in the UK:
