What we know about “Time For Miracles”
“Time For Miracles” is the song Adam Lambert recorded that Brian May was referring to in his now famous quote, “And I was privileged to hear a track that the guys have finished for Adam Lambert … a song for a forthcoming film, 2012. I have to say I was completely blown away … it’s truly sensational. In fact it’s so obviously a number one smash, any bookie would be mad to take bets on it. I am not kidding. I’m not easily moved to jelly by male vocalists … but Adam’s voice reaches out with sensitivity, depth, maturity, and awesome range and power which will make jaws drop all around the world. Its an awesome performance. No doubt about it. The world of Rock has a bright new star.”
During a Twitter party Adam Lambert answered a couple of questions about “Time For Miracles”. Adam was asked, “Brian May is raving about your song for 2012. What kind of sound is it?” Adam’s response, “Classic rock ballad. Earthy and catchy.” Adam was also asked, “Is the 2012 song your single or will you have a separate single?” Adam said, “My first single will be from my album. 2012 song is for the film.”

Here are a couple of interviews with Adam Lambert from Cleveland. It’s good to see Adam back in the press circuit. During the first interview conducted by Q104 radio, Adam is asked many of the same questions we have heard before. But in the interviewer’s defense, he did ask his Q104 listeners on twitter for questions. I’m thinking there are many people interested in Adam that may not have seen every interview he has done. Anyway, Adam’s laughter in this interview is contagious and that alone makes this one worth while. At the end of the interview, Adam gets the opportunity to clear up some misconceptions about his throat and vocal chords and explains why he has had to pull back from some of the fan activities during the tour. Adam Lambert Interview with Q104 Cleveland
It’s interesting, if you look back at this interview with Adam in Utah, Adam talks about his biggest challenge on tour is to maintain his energy. Given Adam’s demanding set on tour, it should come as no surprise that something had to give. Adam also talks about wanting to spend time with his fans.
During this next interview with John Soeder (Plain Dealer Pop Music Critic), Adam talks about what he does during his occasional day off, the book he’s reading right now (which I found interesting), how he stays grounded, the many top name producers, song writers, and artists he’s working with on his new album which is beyond exciting, and Brian May from Queen. When asked about one of new songs featured on the new sci-fi film “2012″ (coming to theaters in November of this year), Adam won’t spill any details, but you can see his genuine excitement about his new music.
Here’s what Brian May of Queen had to say about Adam’s new music. Very impressive! We know Adam has the support of his fans, but it’s very rewarding to hear the professionals in the business show their support in a big way.
