Lambert Adds Hitmaker Max Martin to List of Collaborators

By |

Adam Lambert delivered some news about his November debut album via a giddy tweet this morning: "In NYC to record song with MAX MARTIN!!! Soo excited. This album is getting so great!!" Martin is the Swedish wunderkind responsible for Kelly Clarkson's mammoth "Since U Been Gone," Britney Spears' "... Baby One More Time," Pink's "So What" and "I Kissed a Girl" by Lambert's cape-wearing pal Katy Perry.

As Rolling Stone reported earlier this month, the American Idol runner-up has also locked down writing and/or recording sessions with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (Kelly Clarkson, Beyoncé), Lady Gaga producer RedOne, Linda Perry, Greg Wells and Sam Sparro.

Lambert told RS he completed a bunch of sessions before the American Idols Live tour launched in July, but the weeks following the tour's end — it wraps mid-September — will be packed with work on his as-yet-untitled debut. "I got a lot of co-writing done, some great initial vocal material recorded, and just general collaborations with different producers."
