It is symbolic that the premier took place on the stage of the ‘American idol’ show, because 7 years ago this show gave Lambert popularity. The song also features Swedish star Laleh. Lambert says that the song ‘Welcome to the show’ is going to give people strength to be exactly who they re. Presenting the song Adam wanted to surprise his fans with a new, uplifting anthem for the spring. Max Martin helped Lambert to find two writers and producers for the song – Laleh, also featuring as a vocalist, and Ali Payami, who already worked with Lambert on t his hit ‘Ghost town’.
The song is very typical for Lambert but at the same time it is very unique. The instrumental arrangement is a perfect background for Lambert’s vocal (which is amazing as usual). And the lyrics of the song are for everybody who has problems with accepting themselves as a part of this world.
