Adam tweeted earlier today, “My deepest sympathies go out to friends and family of Cory Monteith. Such tragic news.”
Shortly there after the casting news broke, it was revealed that Adam is walking away from his recording contract with RCA after the label insisted his next release be an 80′s cover album, something which he steadfastly refused.
He sent a letter to THRexplaining his decision…
“We are indeed having the oft-cited “creative differences” as to what my next project will be. Your article was correct, the label is “pushing for an (80′s) covers album,” and feels that this is the only kind of release they are prepared to support. While there are lots of great songs from that decade, my heart is simply not in doing a covers album.”
“Over the past four years, I have been truly fortunate to work with an amazing roster of producers, writers and engineers. Thanks to them, I have grown as both a songwriter and a vocalist. Artistically & professionally, I think it is essential that I continue with this evolution. I am already deep into writing new material with some very talented colleagues for a brand new album, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this new sound & direction. This music is where my heart is, and I believe that is what my fans want to hear.”
Bravo Adam. Not many people have the guts to stand up for themselves, especially to a major record label. However, if anyone could have done it, Adam could.
