Could the next Adam Lambert album finally be inching closer?

The "Ghost Town" singer hasn't released a record since 2015's The Original High, and though fans have been getting plenty of the American Idol alum during his live treks with Queen, they're also getting antsy for new music. And Lambert, apparently, is ready to appease the masses.

During a recent interview with Wonderland Magazine, he said fans have been "waiting long enough" for new music, explaining that he's already been working on his next project.

"I’ve really been trying to explore what I want the sound and subject matter to be,” he told the outlet. “I want it to be authentic and real and something that felt natural to me. Because it’s such a competitive industry.”

Based on his release pattern, Lambert should have an album out this year: For Your Entertainment, Trespassing, and The Original High were all released within three years of each other. But from the sounds of it, it doesn't seem likely that he'll have a full-length ready in 2018.

He could, however, have a single, and has already promised just that: In February, he teased a "yummy" new record on Twitter and said new music will be out this year.

"Probably written about 35ish [songs],
he wrote, responding to a follower's question. "Not far enough in the process to pick a single. Still lots to be done."

Without more details, it's hard to guess when the next Lambert record might arrive, but the end of 2019 seems like a feasible target. Until then, keep your ears peeled for a new song.
