Do not adjust you computer monitors: the above image of Adam Lambert is in fact the cover for his post-Idol debut album For Your Entertainment, due out November 23rd. The album cover was confirmed by Lambert's Adam Official website today, and judging solely by the art, his debut is venturing to a glammed-out galaxy far, far away from his image on his 2012 single "Time for Miracles" — probably landing someplace where there are Spiders from Mars. From his bright blue hair to For Your Entertainment's straight-off-Purple Rain font, this album looks like it'll live up to Lambert's Twitter promise that "Glam is back!!!"
So how do Lambert's fans feel about this striking cover? Apparently, the commenters on the Adam Official Website love it. One fan compares Lambert to a "Glittery Alien from Planet Fierce," which could be the best comparison one can make when discussing this cover. Elsewhere, there's tons of "OMFG" and "GLAM" in the comments.
As Rolling Stone previously reported, Lambert's debut LP will feature production work from Dr. Luke, Howard Benson, Rob Cavallo, RedOne, Max Martin, Ryan Tedder, Claude Kelly, Linda Perry and Idol judge Kara DioGuardi. For Your Entertainment may also feature a Lady Gaga-penned song that Lambert recently recorded in the studio.
