Adam Lambert has decided to dump his record label -- because they tried to force him into a covers album.
Glambert wrote a letter to the Hollywood Reporter about his decision to sever ties with RCA Records, saying, "At this point, we are indeed having the oft-cited 'creative differences' as to what my next project will be. The label is pushing for an ['80s] covers album, and feels that this is the only kind of release they are prepared to support. While there are lots of great songs from that decade, my heart is simply not in doing a covers album. My passion for the music and respect for the fans will always come first. I am excited to find a new label team who shares this vision."
Of course, Glambert just signed on to perform with Queen -- as he has a number of times -- at this fall'siHeart Radio Festival.
