Adam Lambert is back with a new music video for the somber "Another Lonely Night," the follow-up to his "Ghost Town" lead single from The Original High and it's an impactful clip about, as you might have guessed, feeling lonely.
For the video, the "American Idol" alum teamed up with a director he's known for quite some time. "I’ve known Luke Gilford for years. We run in some of the same circles in LA," he exclusively told iHeartRadio, before admitted that they recently bumped into each other at a party.
"I knew that when it came time to do this music video, that he would be the perfect director," he said. "He leads with the heart and his instinct and is very passionate about the work that he does. He has an incredible eye for the unique."
The video for "Another Lonely Night" explores the emotions that Vegas entertainers feel before, during and after creating life for Sin City. "When the lights turn off and the costumes get put away, many struggle with the feeling of loneliness. I wanted to paint a picture that wasn’t necessarily happy or sad, but showed the entire range in between," he continued.
In the clip, Adam plays a lounge singer, who takes the stage at famed restaurant Peppermill to perform for Las Vegas tourists. His performance is intercut with scenes of other entertainers (a stripper, showgirl and wedding minister) doing their duties, only to come home to themselves. Shout out to transgender Youtube sensation Gigi Gorgeous' appearance in the clip. The feeling is real, people.
"Having real restaurant patrons made for a very interesting dynamic because people were coming in and leaving and not really knowing what was going on. It kind of heightened the awkwardness, which increased the emotional tension of the video, and added to the spontaneity of connection," he added of his scenes.
