Adam Lambert announces ‘Velvet’ release date and European tour

Global superstar Adam Lambert has announced that his forthcoming album Velvet will be released on March 20.

The album will feature the previously released tracks from his Velvet: Side A EP, as well as a string of new songs including a collaboration with music legend Nile Rodgers called ‘Roses’.

To celebrate being able to pre-order the album, ‘Roses’ is now available to download and stream. Written by Adam with Fred Ball and Kes Kross, the high-groove track oozes soul and 70’s funk, further adding to the delicious retro sound that Adam has been creating as of late.
