In an attempt to drum up more press, the label head responsible for releasing Adam Lambert's old recordings is speaking out!
John Hecker, CEO of Hi Fi Recordings, claims that the American Idol runner-up co-wrote the tracks on his album, On With The Show, which Hecker plans to release this summer.
We recall Glambert saying: "Back in 2005 when I was a struggling artist, I was hired as a studio singer to lend my vocals to tracks written by someone else."
Hecker tells a different story!
"The music's amazing," the Hi Fi Recordings CEO tells Billboard. "There are some uptempo [songs], there's some that rock a little more, and there are some songs on the same tip as Want. It's a real album that's coming out, not just a conglomerate of a bunch of songs. This is all original material — as a matter of fact, Adam wrote a lot of it."
Hecker claims Glambert stopped into the studio days before the Idol finale and was "blown away by the material."
And even though the label head hasn't talked to 19 Entertainment because it "wasn't relevant" at the time, Hecker is confident releasing Adam's album before the new Glamberella material is out is in no ways illegal
Says Hecker: "We would never put anything out that wasn't fully owned by the parties involved with all the rights secured. We were really careful."
And of course, Hecker believes what he is doing is best for Glambert's career!
"I'm working [Adam's] brand with as much care as anybody could," he concludes. "I do not want to hurt this guy, I want this guy to be as huge as he should be, and I think this music is only going to help."
Sounds to us like this guy just wants to ca$h in on the Glambert's recent rise to fame! Smart!
