BRAND NEW ALBUM SET FOR RELEASE LATER THIS SPRING ON RCA RECORDS




(February 22, 2012- New York, NY) Due to popular demand, Usher’s new single “Climax” will now be available for sale on iTunes and all digital providers today, Wednesday, February 22, 2012, moved up from its original release date of 2/28. The new single written by Usher Raymond along with Ariel Rechtshaid, Redd Stylez and Diplo, who also produced the single, will appear on Usher’s forthcoming new album set for release later this spring on RCA Records.

“Climax”, a genre defying track, is receiving rave reviews - Pitchfork declares “Climax” "an exercise in the power of restraint, as Usher sings the woes of a romance stuck in limbo, alternating whispery falsettos and earnestly pained howls….Diplo shows uncharacteristic subtlety behind Usher's sentiment, with a beat that seems to hang suspended in midair.” The Los Angeles Times writes "Climax" "is rooted in pure soul, with Diplo employing sexy synths behind a dripping downbeat. Draw the curtains, light a candle and take a listen." Perez Hilton exclaims “LOVE IT!! This song is a trance-y, smooth HIT!!”

Adam Lambert Set to Perform with Queen at Knebworth Park for a Unique One-Off Concert


Adam Lambert has been invited to grace the stage with legendary rock band, Queen this summer at Knebworth Park for Sonisphere 2012.

After their brief meeting on American Idol, the potent chemistry between Queen and Lambert finally broke the surface when, at the invitation of Queen’s Brian May and Roger Taylor, Lambert joined them for the closing showcase at the recent MTV Europe Awards, where Queen were present to collect their Global Icon award.

Their eight minute MTVE set ignited an immediate reaction across the internet with social network sites buzzing with excitement and campaigning for a more formal union between Queen and Lambert. The Sonisphere 2012 Knebworth stage will at last provide an eager public the opportunity to see May, Taylor and Lambert delve deeper into exploring their very evident artistic appreciation of one another. Says Brian May: “Judging by my incoming mail, this decision will make a lot of people very happy. It's a worthy challenge for us, and I'm sure Adam would meet with Freddie's approval! And what better place to revisit, and walk those emotional paths than Knebworth? It will be a rush.”

Adam adds: “I'm completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon. The thought of sharing the stage for a full set is so beautifully surreal. I'm honored to be able to pay my respects to Freddie's memory. He's a personal hero of mine and I am deeply grateful for the chance to sing such powerful music for fans of this legendary band. I know the evening will be a huge milestone for me, and with the support of Brian, Roger and the rest of the band I know magic will be on display.”

Pay special attention Glamberts, there will be an exclusive pre-sale through www.adamlambertfans.com prior to the actual on-sale. Keep coming back to www.adamofficial.com for more information or join Adam's official newsletter.

Queen + Adam Lambert, Sonisphere Festival 212, Knebworth Park, July 7, 2012.
