Artists say that there are a lot of similarities between having a baby and creative endeavours like publishing a book or releasing an album. So it’s not surprising that regulars here at alex-lambert.com have started betting on which date Alex Lambert’s album will be released – the same way people bet on the day a baby will be born.

Sound like fun? Why not join in! No real bets are required – just post a comment below including the date(s) on which you think Alex’s single and/or album will be released (they may end up being two very different dates!). The winner will receive bragging rights and get their name mentioned in a post and tweet!

Keep in mind that American Idol Season 10 premiers January 19th, and it would make sense from a marketing perspective to release a single or at least announce a release date while the early episodes are airing… could we really be so lucky? Will it really be so soon? Also worth considering, a lot of established artists, including Lady Gaga,  Britney Spears and Fiona Apple, will be releasing albums this spring… will the marketers choose to release Alex’s album during the winter months, when the market won’t be as flooded? What do you think?

If you already bet on a date, please re-post it here – and specify whether your date is for the album or single release (we’ll accept guesses and winners in both categories). Good luck! And remember, we’re all winners once the album comes out!!

  1. @Felicia OMG! I would LOVEEEE to be his promoter!!! or manager :biggrin:

  2. Question: Would Alex Lambert and The Lights be taking the “Daughtry” model, like Casey James has taken? I would assume so, seeing that they are a band. What do you think?

    The American Idol boot song…. I think that Alex has a very good opportunity in getting the elimination song. It usually goes to a 19 Entertainment artist, with the exception of Daniel Powter. Most have gone to Idol winners, but if they want to promote an artist within that has a legitimate chance of breaking through into the Top 40, it would be Alex. American Idol would be one of the best forums to have his voice heard by millions and to get name back out there in just one episode.

    @snuffles- you’re right. If things are about to happen, then Alex will be getting an official webpage soon. There still must be an announcement of some sort within days…like yesterday. I would think that Alex is much further along than Casey, seeing that he had all summer to write and produce demos and move into full production on some when Casey was touring with American Idol Live.

    RE: Alex Lambert and the Lights

    Uhhhh….NO. They’re just a back up band. Alex just felt like naming them. They had ZERO to do with his songwriting or album making process. Alex is a solo act.

    @Snuffles Thanks..That’s what I felt all along.

    Recent tweet to Alex from Eddie Ellis http://twitter.com/eddietellis
    @TrueAlexLambert Dude writing sesh this week, let’s make it happen!!!

    Not much on him, except he and Jeff Solomon are working together which means he has been collaborating with the same artists as Jeff. If Alex has as session this week with Eddie, then Jeff will be there too.

    Yeah, but that writing session might be off–Jeff Solomon did respond to Alex after the “I hate bacon” tweet from Alex–seems Jeff had an issue with it. :tongue: (That’s a joke, folks, in case the emoticon doesn’t show!)

    For those of you not on twitter, it’s worth mentioning the tweet from Nasri last night: @NasriWorld: @TrueAlexLambert shout to my boy for being an amazing artist. look out mutha fucks cuz we coming

    Pretty cool, huh? I had wondered if they’d just gotten so busy that they left Alex in the dust–good to know that they’ve still got his back. Sounds promising!

    Yeah, Diane, especially the “we coming”!! Sounds like sooner rather than later!! :w00t:

  7. Didn’t Nasri co-write “I Didn’t Know”? Did he co-write any other tracks with Alex.

  8. snuffles: Didn’t Nasri co-write “I Didn’t Know”? Did he co-write any other tracks with Alex.  

    Yes Nasri and Adam Messinger co-wrote “I Didn’t Know”. I am not aware of any other tracks. If they haven’t, I bet they will. I am still amazed at just how good that song is and to think they had never worked together before. Magical! Nasri and Adam were a bit consumed with Beiber this summer/fall. Is Nasri dropping an album soon himself? He took to twitter yesterday in a vengeance and was sending links to several of his songs. His tweet to Alex may have been offensive to some, but I got the biggest kick out of it. Thanks for posting it Diane!

    Me too Lauren! You know I was going CRAZY on twitter when I saw that tweet yesterday from Nasri! I agree it does sound promising and I wasn’t offended at all, hehe. He’s awesome! Even if “I Didn’t Know” is not the first single, it needs to be one of his singles! That song needs to be in a movie, at the top of the charts and #1 on iTunes! Lol

  10. The Nasri tweet kinda sounded like when Alex launches, so will he? Like maybe “I Didn’t Know” could be the first single.

    ETA: It’s as good a guess as any. Especially since Clear Channel payed for and pimped the video. They could easily add it to their stations since they already like the song so much.

    You’re right snuffles. Alex has always made it clear that he’s a solo act. The Lights may or may not ever play with him again. But, he does need a backup band, so never say never, right?

  12. snuffles: @Janet – If they release an album with NO single release and ZERO build up, they might as well kill the album now. Even the crappiest of marketing campaigns know to release a single first.  (Reply)

    You’re probably right. But, remember who we’re dealing with here. I have very little faith in Alex’s “management.” My only solace is that I know he’s surrounded by influential and talented people who can help lead, guide, and push what they want through. I’ll never be able to decide which song should be the single release. Love them all too much.

    Just read over ALL of your comments. Looks like we got ourselves in the spin cycle on this one! OMG! We’ll see when we see. haha.

  13. @Linda W, @CW, @Molly, @Felicia, @Katherine, @Lauren,
    Thank you for your encouragement. Alex angels are also angels to me.
    tears.. I put a :heart: mark on the Michigan State of my map. I live in the Island of Bali, Indonesia. It is about half size of Hawaii Island. I hope someday Alex will visit Bali on the honey moon or travel incognito as many celebrities do. Julia Roberts film EAT PRAY LOVE shooting place was about 5km away from my village. If you watch the movie, you will know the atmosphere. Well most of my friends liking is J-Pops. (I m Japanese origin.) I have never heard someone talking about AI. So I think I have a mission to let them know about Alex world.
    Thank you very much every one and good luck.

    • @ko oooh Bali! You are blessed to live in such a beautiful place! And yes, spread the word about Alex to the world!! :D
