High Drama works best in those moments where Lambert manages to make a cover feel like it belongs to him as much as to the original artist. As Lambert sings, "History, it pains me, and it chains me / 'Cause I'm mad about the boy," champions of freedom and acceptance become one, timeless – the best thing about good covers. However, I was influenced by the great rendition of the single Holding Out For a Hero to give it a shot. And I thought, "Okay obviously there's no arguing with how brilliant the original is but I can't just copy it. A notable standout among those more true-to-source tracks is his Duran Duran cut, “Ordinary World,” in which he hews close to the original but runs with the opportunity to flex his incredible vocal range.

And so it's interesting because I didn't even think about it consciously but yeah, almost all of the artists on the album were people that have had like their own moment, their own sound. I just think that it's a beautiful metaphor for life and the challenges that we are dealt and how we deal with those things. Lambert: Well it's interesting because I felt like there were times where I was battling with myself between following my instincts and having my own integrity and then trying to do something that I thought other people would like and pop music is so much about appealing to the masses.

He also made appearances on The Jonathan Ross Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, The View, Australian Idol, and That's My Jam. While many likely won’t have the context of the original, Lambert again elevates it into a lively blues-rock territory. Notwithstanding the Queen-like a capella intro, he not only captures the poignant intimacy and stark vulnerability in Eilish’s lyrics, but takes it a step further.

At the start of the 2022, Lambert joined the judging panel for the new ITV (UK) Saturday night entertainment show Starstruck alongside Beverley Knight, Sheridan Smith, Jason Manford, and host Olly Murs. His song writing skills and vision were stellar on his previous cd Velvet, but this album showcases another side to his versatile talent! The result of High Drama is that no song is by mistake there, and no drum fill, guitar solo, or throbbing bass lacks curation for a new sonic personality of a classic. Arguably his boldest choice on the album is his reimagining of “Sex on Fire” as a sweaty, gratuitous dancefloor anthem. But Lambert tells me during our recent Zoom chat he is just now getting more comfortable with his voice and role in music.Baltin: That's the thing is for a great interpreter, whether you go back to Tony Bennett or more recently someone like Rod Stewart, you have to make them your own.
