Adam Lambert lives in some high-security, 1984-esque society in the music video for “Never Close Our Eyes.” He wakes up in cement cell, which is under 24-hour surveillance, and promptly marches in an orderly fashion to the cafeteria where everyone is distributed a nutritious breakfast of blue and white pills.
The entire society is brainwashed to submission, sweating over menial jobs like scrubbing the cement floors with soap and water. But Lambert breaks up the hypnotized party by with some sort of Mockingjay-inspired speech, inspiring everyone to rebel against the uniformed-guards.
Despite having virtually no freedoms, the guy manages to look stylish (as always) especially at the end when his grey-toned outfits transform into bright and colourful suits. The track is from his album Trespassing, which topped the Billboard 200 chart.

I can only imagine that sometime in the future when we purchase our favourite musician’s record they’ll appear right in front of us in holographic form just to say “thank you for being my number one superfan [insert name] and may I just say you look dayam fine.” A girl can only dream but in the meantime some artists are patting you on the back in other interactive ways.
Adam Lambert paired with an app called Zappar for his album Trespassing, which is out today. If you have Zappar when you buy the album, you’ll get a personal video message from the singer and will be able to take a photo with him. You’ll also receive a Golden Ticket that will earn you a special promotion at the cash. Winning.
And please, someone tell us what the surprise is because we’re dying to know.
Also, Lambert stopped by Good Morning America this morning to answer a few quick questions and perform a few of his Trespassing tracks, including his latest single “Never Close Our Eyes.”

Adam Lambert showed off a pared down look and performance at an acoustic set this week, premiering his new song “Never Close our Eyes.” The song was written by Playboy cover star Bruno Mars, and is about never wanting to sleep so you can spend all your time awake with your loved one.
The song will appear on his sophomore album Trespassing, which comes out on May 15. While I love his flashier Queen-style performances you can really hear the power of his voice in this track. He says it’s the first time he’s performed acoustically and I think he should do it more often. [Source]
