Adam Lambert - 2012 Soundtrack Artist: "Time for Miracles"
So tell me how you got hooked up with a song on this.
Adam Lambert: "Sony Pictures came to me and my management and offered me the song, and it was a real honor that they did so. I was flattered and kind of intimated, to be honest with you."
Adam Lambert: "Because it's a big, giant song at the end of a big, giant movie and I was like, 'Me?' I don't know. But I listened to the song and I thought that the melody was fantastic. I thought that the lyric was really inspiring and heartfelt, and I was really excited to record it."
You talk about the lyrics, was it the 'time for miracles' that you could relate to?
Adam Lambert: "Yeah, I mean personally I can relate to it. My dreams are coming true right now, and I think that the theme of the song is that if you really celebrate the spirit of love, and hold that true to your heart, it will pull you through the hardest times."
You hit some amazing notes in it. Did you push the material that way?
Adam Lambert: "I heard the song when it was a demo and it was actually kind of a softer acoustic rock thing. And when Rob Cavallo got finished with the track and played it for me, it just erupted and it had this climax. It went bigger and bigger and bigger, and louder and higher, and I said, 'That's going to be fun.'"
What are you working on now?
Adam Lambert: "I'm working on releasing my album. It comes out November 23rd. And I'm working right now on coming up with a performance for the AMAs that's going to be on the 22nd. I'm coming up with band rehearsals, what I'm going to wear, dancers, the whole bit."
What would be you do to prepare for the world ending in 2012?
Adam Lambert: "If the world were to end? Stop, drop and roll, find a doorway to hide in, and make sure you have your can goods nearby."
And suggestions for people who want to be on American Idol? What should they do?
Adam Lambert: "You know, you've got to find what makes you unique but while still staying true to yourself."
Was the American Idol experience everything you thought it was going to be?
Adam Lambert: "It was everything I thought it was going to be and more. I was continually surprised by it and humbled by it and shocked, surprised that I got through every week. I never thought I would get that far and to have it lead to this, I'm thrilled."
