Adam Lambert drops his glam-rock take on the 1984 classic, “Holding Out For A Hero.”
The video begins with Lambert in a black suit and tie surrounded by backup dancers adorned in bedazzled helmets. And then comes the reveal.
It doesn’t take long for Lambert to shed his sunglasses revealing a full-face of glittering makeup — and as he sings about needing to be saved by a hero, the singer instead takes on the role of the savior by removing the helmets from his backup dancers, allowing them to express their truest selves.
By the end of the journey, a kilt-wearing Lambert is joined by an ensemble of queer performers, rocking out to the moody rendition of the track.
“Holding Out For A Hero” is just one of the covers set to appear on Lambert’s upcoming new album High Drama scheduled for release on Feb. 24.
