    Adam Lambert has dropped the introspective single, “Feel Something,” which will be featured on his upcoming album.

    The tender ballad, co-written by Lambert, Benedict Cork and Josh Cumbee, explores the singer’s battles with depression and anxiety. The track incorporates light percussion, tender piano chords and electric guitar. “I waited so long to feel like I’m worthy / Find someone who could rewrite the pages I’m turning / I’ve grown with the pain, bathed in the lonely / All I want in this moment is someone to hold me,” he sings.

    “I love making and performing music, but there have been many times where I’ve had to compromise on my artistic vision with executives making decisions based on money and not art,” Lambert shared on Twitter. “I’m coming out of a dark period of second-guessing my own artistry and having my mental health suffer because of it.”

    “Feel Something” is Lambert’s first release in over a year, since 2017’s “Two Fux.” He recently took to the stage with iconic rock band Queen at the 2019 Academy Awards, performing “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions.”
