The American Idol winner on his upcoming album and being openly-gay in the music industry

American Idol glam-rocking heartthrob Adam Lambert is looking good on the cover of Attitude magazine's May issue. Lambert spoke with the British gay publication ahead of the release later this year of his third album, The Original High, and talks about his personal evolution and his coming out.

While discussing his journey from "Idol to Icon," Lambert gives shout outs to fellow LGBT artists, and provided some insight on what it's like to be gay in the music world:

"I think with me and Sam [Smith], there's definitely an understanding there, like: 'Hey gurl, how you doing?' [laughs] But you know, there's only a few of us actually, on a mainstream level. I think we're building a little clique, I hope, but I haven't met that many. I mean, Elton John is amazing, what a sweetheart, and Boy George is also incredible. I've sat down and had lunch with him before, he's so smart and has been though A LOT, and now he's in a really good, healthy space, and loves music and is DJing and is still really connected to pop culture. He was really interesting to talk to."

Earlier this week, Lambert posted a teaser for the first single, "Ghost Town," to Instagram. The decision to lead with "Ghost Town" was obvious, he told Attitude: "It was a bit like, 'Well, this is the one.' There are four or five other really obvious singles, but when we finished that one it felt special. It felt like it had to be the one."

Listen to the snippet of the song below, and read full interview in Attitude, available on newsstands next week.
