Adam performed at the New Next Now Awards

Adam closed the show at the New Next Now Awards that aired on Logo last night. This is the title song on the new album, Trespassing, that will be out May 15, 2012. It's MJ crossed with Prince crossed with Queen, with a decidedly funky groove. It might be the second single off the album, but it hasn't been announced yet.

This is my least favorite song of the ones I've heard snippets of from the new album, but I love it, so I'm looking forward to the album.

The band is: Tommy Joe Ratliff on guitar; Ashley Dzerigian on bass; Byron Cooke Brian London on organ-sounding keys and musical director; Isaac Carpenter on drums (I think); Octavia Latrice and Keisha Renee singing backup vocals. I'm excited that there is no canned backing anything.

Adam will perform on Idol in May sometime. And then, for extra credit, he's fronting Queen for at least four shows this summer: one in Moscow, one in Kiev (with Elton John), and two in London. (The whole Sonisphere festival has been canceled.) I have my fingers crossed for at least one U.S. Queen+Adam gig.
