Adam Lambert’s Amazing Ghost Town

Ghost TownWell, it’s been approximately exactly one week from the moment that My Boy Adam Lambert dropped his highly anticipated new single Ghost Town. I say highly anticipated because it had been almost two and a half years since he had released new music. In addition, the promotional efforts of Adam and his new label Warner Brothers did an excellent job building up the anticipation prior to the release.

Was the reaction worthy of the anticipation? The answer is a clear yes. Ghost Town hit #1 on iTunes as did the pre-order for his album The Original High which drops June 16. And critical reaction was impressive to say the least:

  • “I’ve heard the Future of Pop. It’s Ghost Town.” Yahoo Music
  • “May Give You An Eargasm.”
  • “Twitter is literally a Ghost Town as @adamlambert has well and truly killed us all with that phenomenal song.”
  • Ghost Town is destined for the top of the charts.” Music and Lyrics
  • “Adam Lambert’s Single ‘Ghost Town’ Is Officially Here And Yes, It Is Amazing.” Socialite Life
  • “Reminding everyone why he’s undeniably one of the most exciting male popstars in the world right now.” Huffington Post UK
  • “Eerie new club banger.” Time
  • “Haunting and dance-heavy at the same time.” Huffington Post
  • “Lambert sings of loneliness with an affected vocal, one which shows off his impeccable range.”
  • Ghost Town‘s got summer smash written all over it.” Summerscape
  • “The singer returns with a bonkers track that forces you to sit up and take notice.” Official Charts
  • “Must hear.” Billboard
  • “You need to hear Adam Lambert.” Digital Spy

And what are this critic’s musings? To be honest, there are a lot of “textures” – to use a word that Adam used in describing Ghost Town – in it that took a couple of listens to wrap my head around. But since those early listens, there hasn’t been a single day that I haven’t woken up with the sounds of Ghost Town earworming through my head. It is both innovative and catchy, and I am officially obsessed with it.

The June 16 release of the entire album can’t come soon enough.
