Adam Lambert's "Time for Miracles" video wasn't supposed to debut until it was featured in movie theaters prior to Michael Jackson's This Is It starting October 28th, but since the song was prematurely released this past weekend, Lambert's official MySpace video page unveiled the "Miracles" clip early. Considering the single is from the upcoming disaster film 2012, Lambert scales back on the glam for the clip, opting to instead focus on the performance and his towering vocals.
"I'm just walking through looking straight at the camera singing the song, and there's a riot going on around me — people being tossed in front of me, looting, you know, people being arrested," Lambert told MTV last week. For most of the video, Lambert walks around in a city in ruins as panicked people rush around him — he hits the soaring notes of the bridge as a plane escapes the city, and the scene he described is reminiscent of the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony" video. The clip features some spectacular footage from 2012, which stars John Cusack and Amanda Peet.
"Time for Miracles" became available for download on both iTunes and Amazon yesterday after the single was inadvertently leaked by Italian iTunes over the weekend. As Rolling Stone reported, Lambert's first post-Idol album, out November 23rd, will be titled For Your Entertainment. Lambert also revealed yesterday that he spent time in the studio with Lady Gaga recording a song written by The Fame Monster star.
