Adam Lambert has announced a forthcoming new covers album, called High Drama.

The album, which drops on February 24, 2023, will be the singer's first covers album. It will feature renditions of classics songs like Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For A Hero" and Ann Peebles' "I Can't Stand The Rain" as well as modern hits like Billie Eilish's "Getting Older" and Lana Del Rey's "West Coast."

The singer also released a cover of Duran Duran's "Ordinary World" along with the announcement. The Queen frontman also performed the track on the season finale of NBC's "The Voice" on Tuesday, December 13.

The album will be available for purchase on vinyl in March 2023.

"The idea came up to do an album of covers, and I haven't done that before," Lambert told Yahoo Entertainment. "I've done that on Idol, obviously… and Queen is essentially sort of a covers situation, even though I'm in the band."

He added, "It was like a real nice challenge to go, 'OK, let's find songs' — some are obscure, some are new, some are really well-known — 'that we think are cool, and flip them and make them sound entirely different if we can.'"

High Drama Tracklist:

Holding Out for a Hero
Ordinary World
Getting Older
I Can't Stand the Rain
West Coast
Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?
Sex on Fire
My Attic
I'm a Man
Mad About The Boy
