ADAM Lambert loves that the most shocking thing he has done this year was release a hit single which featured acoustic guitar.

The pop star who went viral for kissing a man during a performance and set jaws dropping when he was announced as the singer for Queen’s tour last year said the success of his dark folk meets house hit Ghost Town proved people still liked him.

The song has already notched up gold sales in Australia where he has been a frequent visitor since his run on American Idol in 2009 and is back to launch his latest album The Original High and perform on The Voice on Sunday.

“I haven’t been forgotten or anything!” he said.

Lambert said the switch in musical direction was partly influence by his tour with Queen and the hit Lay Me Down, his collaboration with Avicii which appeared on the superstar DJ’s debut artist album.

“Both of those projects reminded me there is so much out there that is possible regardless of your backstory or what show you came from,” he said.

“Being asked to work with Queen and Avicii says that at some point your work can speak for itself.”

After previous records forthrightly addressed gay issues, Lambert said The Original High was more about his personal search for “something or someone”.

“I do have this longing and I talk to my friends who are about my age all the time that after all the experiences I have had and travelling and performing, I am still longing for something and I keep looking for it,” he said.

“When I figure it out, the next album will be called I Chased It and I Caught It.”

Lambert said the video shoot for Ghost Town, made with award-winning director Hype Williams, was a two-day long house party.

“We had dips and chips and very good tequila, which I sip,” he said.

His acting skills were put to the test when he joined Glee for several episodes of their 2013 season and said he would be keen to take on more acting projects.

“I had a lot of fun on Glee, it was a big challenge. I remember the day I went to the set thinking ‘I hope this is going to work because no one bothered to audition me’. I was kinda nervous,” he said.

Lambert will today announce the dates for a tour of Australia in January.
