Adam Lambert's "Time for Miracles" To Debut Before Jackson's "This Is It"

October 14, 2009 10:07 AM ET

The music video for Adam Lambert's "Time for Miracles," from the upcoming apocalypse flick 2012, will fittingly debut in movie theaters: the American Idol runner-up's clip is set to premiere as part of a trailer before Michael Jackson's This Is It when the documentary hits the big screen on October 28th. As Rolling Stone reported yesterday, a brief audio clip of "Time of Miracles" was unveiled this weekend, but fans won't have to wait that long to hear the power ballad, as Lambert tells MTV that the full song should be released around October 18th.

"[The video] was really performance-driven. It was really about the lyric content and the emotional guts of the song," Lambert told MTV. As 2012 focuses on the end of the world, Lambert's blockbuster video will also feature scenes of disaster, as people will panic and loot as the Wild Idol belts out "Miracles" amid the chaos. "That was pretty wild, to try to stay focused on the song while that was happening," Lambert said. Footage of 2012 will also be interlaced into the video.

See what surprises Adam Lambert has planned for his "sexy" November debut.

"Time for Miracles" was produced by Rob Cavallo, who also recorded some tracks for Lambert's upcoming post-Idol debut. "[Cavallo] pushed me to the limit," Lambert told MTV. "I sang for my life. It was quite a day of recording, but it turned out great." Cavallo let a few details slip out to Yahoo! Music, listing "Suburban Decay," "Winners" and "Music Again" as songs that potentially could wind up on Lambert's album. Lambert is still hard at work on his much-anticipated debut, Twittering last night that he was working with Howard Benson, who previously produced Daughtry, Creed and Kelly Clarkson. "This album is gonna be Siiiiiiiiiiiick," Lambert tweeted.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
