Current Queen frontman Adam Lambert has ruled out recording new music with the group. During a chat with, Lambert touched upon his role as the lead singer of Queen today, explaining, "We’re trying new visual component and trying to re-contextualise these songs, with new lights and scenery. We had a great time creating it together. People always ask if we want to record together and I’m not sure it makes total sense because it wouldn’t really be Queen because to me Queen is Freddie (Mercury). My favorite thing is collaborating and putting these concerts together and creating on stage -- it’s super fulfilling and exiting. To present these ideas to these two gentlemen -- especially when they like the idea!"

When pressed as to how working with Queen's Roger Taylor and Brian May has changed him as a musician, the American Idol runner-up said, "I think the power of the songs is that their timelines -- they didn’t really follow any trends, they experimented with different sounds and musical styles -- they were fearless."

Lambert, who began touring with Queen back in 2014, went on to say, "Playing to huge audiences all around the world and seeing them sing along and understanding the power of music is transformative to a person. It’s uniting, everyone sings along -- it’s bringing an entire arena together which in today’s world is pure magic.

Adam Lambert admitted that he stepped into pretty big shoes when he agreed to take the stage fronting Queen -- a band that had perhaps the most legendary and charismatic frontman with the late-Freddie Mercury: "At first it was a little daunting, when we started our first incarnation of this. I was definitely. . . I was apprehensive. He’s a big idol for me, and I thought to myself, y’know, ‘I hope that the fans dig this,’ y’know? ‘Cause there was a possibility that they wouldn’t. And it felt really good, the reception was warm, the press reaction to it the first time was very warm. And it’s such a treat to get on stage and pay my respects and pay tribute to one of my favorite singers ever -- and to sing some of the greatest music ever written."

Adam Lambert has just released "New Eyes," the lead single from his upcoming solo album, Velvet.
