We are in for a treat!
Openly gay singer and songwriter Adam Lambert has released his very own take on a Bonnie Tyler favorite Holding Out for a Hero. The song, which first came out as a soundtrack to the 1984 classic film Footloose, was featured on Bonnie Tyler’s sixth studio album, Secret Dreams and Forbidden Fire (1986).
In the Jordan Rossi-directed music video, Lambert can be seen strutting the stage and performing with his backup dancers all suited up and with matching glittery helmets, too!
Want more from Adam Lambert? No worries, Holding Out for a Hero is just one of the many songs from his upcoming new album called High Drama. High Drama will also feature new renditions of songs from musicians the likes of Sia (Chandelier, 2014); Lana Del Rey (West Coast, 2014); P!nk (My Attic, 2019); Ann Peebles (I Can’t Stand the Rain, 1974); and Billie Eilish (Getting Older, 2021), etc.
If you can’t get enough of Adam Lambert, you may want to check the other songs released from his album. The first one is called Ordinary World (1993), a Duran Duran original, and then there’s Mad About the Boy (1932) by Noël Coward. Watch the music videos below:
I’ve been a huge fan of this music superstar ever since his 2009 American Idol days where he finished as runner-up during the eighth season. I thought his voice is otherworldly and I loved his takes on all the songs he performed, such as Ring of Fire, The Tracks of My Tears, If I Can’t Have You, Mad World, One, and Cryin,’ to name a few.
Adam Lambert’s High Drama album will be available on February 24, 2023. You can preorder High Drama here.
