Adam Lambert reveals Trespassing influences
Adam Lambert reveals Trespassing influences

Singer Adam Lambert has revealed some of the influences that went into the making of his new album Trespassing. Adam admits that he was listening to a lot of 90s music and was specifically inspired by the likes of George Michael and Michael Jackson.

Lambert explained to the Daily Star, “It can’t hurt me that the ’90s are becoming trendy again. I went there because that’s what inherently locked into my musical subconscious, as it’s what I grew up with.”
 
He added, “This album borrows so much from my first pop influences. I was listening to George Michael, Michael Jackson, Queen – I know Queen aren’t ’90s, but that’s when I got into them – and house music. There’s a lot of house’s darker atmospheres in the album too.”
 
Adam then went on to discuss his new single Never Close Our Eyes, which saw him work with Bruno Mars. He continued, “Never Close Our Eyes is a great dance song. It’s a little bit more dance than Bruno usually goes, so it’ll be a fun surprise for people.”
 
Never Close Our Eyes is set to be released in the UK on June 24.

JLS singer Oritse Williams has revealed how he has been writing songs nonstop and has even offered one of his songs out to Usher but has yet to hear anything back. However, Oritse has had one of his songs snapped up, by Irish duo Jedward.

Williams explained, “I write songs and try songwriting for other people as much as possible. I keep writing and writing. I pitched a song for Usher the other day and haven’t heard anything back yet, but I wrote a song for Jedward - their last single ‘Wow Oh Wow’.”
 
He added, “It wasn’t widely known. I didn’t initially write the song for them, but when they were looking for songs, I thought it would be perfect. Louis Walsh called me up and said, ‘I heard you wrote this song. Can I use it for Jedward?’ and I said, ‘Why not? Go for it’.”
 
Oritse then revealed a few of the people that he would love to writ with, adding, “I’d love to write with Ne-Yo, or Bruno Mars, and also Gary Barlow. One day, if there is an opportunity, I’ll take it up.”

Bruno Mars reveals recession inspiration
Bruno Mars reveals recession inspiration

Brit Award nominee Bruno Mars has revealed how the recession in the UK inspired him to write one of the most successful songs of his career so far. Bruno was in the UK when he was short changed trying to convert some of his US dollars into English pound sterling, which inspired him to pen the Travie McCoy hit Billionaire.

Mars explained, “I was in London and I wanted to exchange pounds. So I gave him $500 and he basically gave me back £200. I was like ‘What?! How does this work?’ This is how the Billionaire thing started out. I started humming it on the streets. Travie came along later and put his verses on it and then it hit the charts.”
 
Bruno Mars is set to return to the UK later this month, as he is nominated for the Best International Male at the upcoming Brit Awards and he stands quite a good chance of taking the gong home with him. The Brit Awards are expected to follow the trend of the Grammy Awards and be dominated by singer Adele. The Brit Awards are set to take place on February 21 in London at the O2 Arena.
