Adam Lambert, “Want”

Free MP3 of the Day

There can never be too many power ballads on our iPod. That’s the reason why we’re pretty excited to hear this cut from Adam Lambert‘s newly released collection, The Paramount Sessions.

Back before Adam Lambert was an American Idol he was just another singer going about the business of making a name for himself.

Partnering with another singer, Steve Cooke, Lambert put together a band of ace studio players and booked some hours at LA’s famed Paramount Studios. Sharing the band and splitting the time, the pair turned out 20 soulfully interpreted rock ballads written by Dublyn Jones (ten of which feature Cooke, the other ten of which feature Lambert).

Now for the first time, all 20 tunes are available in a completely remixed and remastered set called The Paramount Sessions. Produced and mixed by Grammy winner Bob Cutarella and featuring sideman who’ve played with Madonna, Seal and Bon Jovi, the collection is chock full of new tracks, extended plays and out takes from both singers.

Today’s Free MP3 of the Day, “Want,” is, of course, an Adam Lambert featured tune. It demonstrates why he was a Idol runner-up and remains a fave among fans of powerful, heartfelt vocals. In fact, it shows why Lambert wasn’t “just another singer” at all.
