In addition to recording his upcoming Behind the Music for VH1, the openly gay singer appeared at Quebec’s Le Festival Ste-Agathe en Feux Festival yesterday. And while there Lambert debuted a new song off of his upcoming album.
Of the song, called “Outlaws of Love,” Lambert said he drew inspiration from his personal experience: “All of the things I’ve been talking about over the past year, all of it boils down to acceptance and this is a song that I wrote about how it feels, that no matter where you go or where you turn, sometimes it feels like you’re just running from the law.”
The video was recorded next to some people who talked through the whole song so I can’t wait for the professional release, just in time for the push by antigay forces to overturn the California FAIR Education Act. There are some moving lyrics such as: “Scars make us who we are….we can go so far with our minds wide open….they say we’ll rot in hell, well, I don’t think we will.”
