In "Getting Older," Lambert shows how a composition, even as recently as one by Billie Eilish, can be given a new emotional avenue to explore by a tempo change – a reframed chorus or simply, in this case, the age of the person singing it. Portrayed by young actor Phoenix Notary in a chimp suit, and with some effects assistance, Spanky has plenty to do in this story, though he looks barely credible most of the time. And that made me realize, "Oh, well I can be honest with my parents about who I am because they're clearly not bothered by this concept.

Adam Lambert: Absolutely, at the BMG party, I got to see some of the other acts that are signed to the label, which was exciting. The result of High Drama is that no song is by mistake there, and no drum fill, guitar solo, or throbbing bass lacks curation for a new sonic personality of a classic. Exclusive to the artist web site this clear viny version also includes a 12" art card of the cover signed by the artist. On February 27, 2023, Lambert performed " Chandelier" on America's Got Talent: All-Stars finale with the season's winner.Two more standout tracks are the atmospheric take on Duran Duran's Ordinary World, and a gloriously camp, glam rock version of Bonnie Tyler's Holding Out for a Hero. An insightful look into Lambert's taste and influences as an artist, the collection covers a wide array of tracks, from Lana Del Rey's "West Coast" and Duran Duran's "Ordinary World" to the jazz standard, "Mad About The Boy" and Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand The Rain.

An experienced musician as Lambert is working with top producers such as Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves, Carly Rae Jepsen), Andrew Wells (Halsey, OneRepublic), and more to create a record that is beyond a covers album: it is an experienced display of composition, and how to reframe music to new audiences. His queerness is present, from the subtle pronoun shift he sneaks into “Chandelier” to his masterful cover of “Mad About the Boy,” his own proud contribution to a tradition of decidedly gay interpretations of the Noel Coward song. In Caste, published in 2020, Wilkerson examines the racial hierarchy in America as a caste system, not unlike systems of oppression in India and in Nazi Germany that have enforced dynamics of superiority and inferiority based on characteristics other than race.Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic said, "High Drama is such an ideal title for Adam Lambert, a singer who specializes in grand, overheated gestures," and "he takes pains to give the 11 songs on High Drama distinctive arrangements that clearly delineate his version from the original. Two more standout tracks are the atmospheric take on Duran Duran's 'Ordinary World', and a gloriously camp, glam rock version of Bonnie Tyler's 'Holding Out for a Hero'.
